    Fantastic hostel. Incredibly friendly staff who were very helpful. Well equipped kitchen and good amount of toilets and showers. The number 60 bus gets you in from the train station.

    Me and Grace had the most amazing time in Gothenburg. We are both very well experienced travellers and have been to countless hostels around the world. We agree that the backpackers hostel in Gothenburg was one of the best places we’ve stayed. Our experience was made incredible by our guide, Peter who took us out for karaoke and a bar crawl. He is respectful, warm and the life of the party! Thanks for keeping us safe and being a good friend to us during our trip. Can’t wait to come back soon!

    Sadly, no events on the weekend I was visiting. My bed was also stripped after 1 night and some of my stuff moved when I was staying for a further 2. Overall, I had a lovely stay in Gothenburg.

    A good hostel with kind staff. A few more utensils and also a bit more space in the kitchen would be nice like a few pot and pants, more knives and a toaster...

    This hostel had all the basic things you needed - curtain for privacy, plug socket, reading light, decent sized lockers under the bed. The location was brilliant and only a short walk to the centre. There were some great social areas but unfortunately when I was there they had lots of young footballers staying (12/ 13 year olds). They were everywhere and I felt quite uncomfortable walking to the toilet in my pjs around lots of kids. If I had know about this prior to booking I wouldn't have booke

    beds were very comfortable and had a curtain which is always a pro. the stuff we’re polite, but a very formal check in experience. Rooms aren’t very soundproof, and I was very unlucky as most of the rooms were booked for a school trip. Bedsheets are included in the price which is a plus. However, halfway through my stay someone came in the room and removed my bedsheets whilst I was gone and the tag with my name on and my pyjamas were missing.

    Atmosphere: The hostel is split up in 2 parts which I found a bit weird. The common rooms were almost always empty during my stay and I only met a couple of other visitors in the kitchen or during breakfast. Cleanliness: When I got to my room I had to change the bed sheets that had stains on it and my room smelled bad because the fridge was really dirty. Facilities: One of my windows was broken. I told the reception twice but they didn't fix it. The cleanliness of the bathrooms was mediocre.
