For a stay in Gothenburg that's both lively and laid-back, try staying at Slottsskogens Youth Hostel. There's something going on almost every day and night, from pub crawls, BBQs and quiz nights to walking tours and picnics. To get involved, chat to our friendly staff at reception (it's open 24 hours a day). Plus, be sure to pick up a free city map from us to get your bearings when you arrive. When you want a little rest and relaxation (we know travelling can be tiring!), head to our luxurious on-site spa to get your zen on.


We're in a popular part of the city, with lots going on in our neighbourhood. It'll take you just over five minutes on foot to get to Slottsskogens Park, where you'll find museums and cute cafés. The nearest tram stop, Olivedalsgatan, is four minutes' walk away, and there's a bus stop two minutes from our front door. It'll take you just under an hour via public transport (a bus then a tram) to get to us from Landvetter Airport, and Gothenburg Central train station is just over a 10-minute tram journey away.

Rooms and Dorms

All of our mixed dorms and private rooms are accessible by elevator. Our dorms aren't your average backpacker hang-outs: all of them come with TVs, hairdryers, complimentary bed linen and, of course, free Wi-Fi. There are also storage drawers for your valuables – just bring along a padlock to keep them safe.

Extras and activities

You'll have access to a fully equipped kitchen, where you could try challenging other guests to a Swedish food cook-off and see who can master the local delicacies first. Another great way to meet people is to head over to our games room or common room. You'll find a pool table, a vending machine, or your next favourite read in our book exchange.

    I stayed here over a long weekend with my friends to do some sight seeing and we were very pleased. Rooms were a size to be expected for a hostel but the beds were honestly beyond comfy. Each morning we struggled to get up because we were so comfortable. Staff were friendly, kitchen and bathrooms were very clean and we loved the location. Not to mention we arrived late on our first night and the staff kept open for us! I would highly recommend staying here as an avid backpacker.

    My room was rather narrow but perfectly adequate. After all, I just wanted somewhere to sleep. It was safe, warm, clean and quiet. The bathroom was also clean and warm. I would recommend it.

    The 4-bed dorm was quite small, but I liked this hostel and would stay again. There's plenty of bathrooms (with toilet, sink and a shower in the same room). The kitchen is well-equipped and there's plenty of eating space. The sauna hours weren't the best to access it (for women it was 4-5 pm). The price is ok by Swedish standards. The location was about a 20-minute walk from the central area and right next to a beautiful, large park. There's plenty of public transit options that run as well.

    A very nice hostel with extremely friendly and helpful staff. They offer a nice breakfast buffet for a reasonable price. The kitchen was there but rather poorly equipped (only a few pans and other cooking utilities). They offer sauna free of charge - very nice in the winter months after spending time outside exploring the city. The lockers in our room were very small and only a small backpack fits in (should be mentioned in the property description). Otherwise a very lovely stay =)
