The hostel is clean and you can find privacy also in the dorm thanks to the curtains. They organize activities (especially the evening), too (Francesco is very cool and he knows how to entertain people!!). With him you can go for pubs, meet new people, do barbecues or just play pool in the hostel. That's a big pro if you're...

This is a hostel that's in a great area of the city. Close to Haga, close to the bar district/good restaurants, and right by Slottsskogens park which is worth a walk through. It's also very accessible by public transit (number 1, 2, or 6 street car from central station). The hostel was great to stay in for the two days...

I would totally recommend this hostel to anyone searching for a place to stay at in Gothenburg (it has been recommended to me by a good friend of mine on the first place). You'll meet really nice and open-minded people and you'll spend quality time during the events organized by the hostel. If you only want to rest a bit,...

I would really recommend this hostel! People are helpful and kind, rooms and other parts of the hostel are clean and all the kitchen equipment you need are there. Nice atmosphere to meet new people, also because of the activities organized by the hostel, for example playing games or go to the bars and clubs in the city.

I would definately recommend staying here. There is a really good atmosphere and everyone is very open. So perfect also when you are traveling alone. The dorms are really good. Next to that at evenings get-togethers are organised to see the nightlife and have fun with the other people at the hostel.

I can recommend this hostel if you wanna save money. It's clean, close to the center and the staff is very kind. There are dormitory but also single or double room. The toilet and shower are in the corridor but everything is clean. There is also a share kitchen where you can cook and eat breakfast or dinner.

I have had an amazing time in Gothenburg and this hostel has been a large part of why! The bathrooms are excellent, really large, private, clean and with great showers! The kitchen is really modern and clean and the rooms are nice, there aren't lockers though. Massive shout out to Francheso, he is amazing. Really friendly and fun. He took...

Strongly recommended. All facilities in place and very fresh. Staff is nice except the young guy in the night who was looking judgemental at me asking me private questions about my stay. Highly recommended still!

I didn't love this hostel. The people on the front desk weren't particularly helpful (I didn't even know there were movies in the evenings until I left). There weren't any events on when I was there. As a solo traveller, it was not a very good place to meet people and it felt isolated. Location is fine - bit of...
