    Wonderful hostel. Had a great atmosphere and i met a lot of great people. The beds have their own privacy blackout curtains so it feels very private and there are plenty of single cell bathrooms with showers so you never have to wait. I loved the set up of the living room! Plenty of room to meet and chat. It is a little far from the train station but not from the main city sights. Would 100% stay again!

    The location was good, beds are comfortable and the hostel is clean. The only problem I encountered was a group of friends staying in my dorm came in at 11.15pm drunk and were talking loudly. They came back and forth between the dorm and common area over a period of about two hours. I barely got any sleep the first night. Most hostels have quiet hours and display them prominently on signs throughout the building and also give a reminder at check in. Thankfully they checked out the next day.

    Great hostel with nice atmosphere and really friendly staff. Several activities were offered by the hostel and it was easy to meet new people. There were individual bathrooms which were very clean. Also the breakfast which you could buy extra was really good!

    I stayed here for about 6 days when I just arrived in Gothenburg. The staff was super friendly, met some awesome people and had an overall good experience. The breakfasts they offer (at extra cost) is highly recommendable, definitely value for money!
