    The service was excellent, I needed help printing and scanning something, they helped me out which I really appreciate. I also borrowed a bike which honestly made my stay! The location is very good as well.

    The room was extremely small, had no bathroom, nothing to hang a jacket or towel, and having a bunk bed is not practical as a solo traveler. There should be more options for the price that I paid.

    Really love my time in Gothenburg and I’m 100% sure that was due to the hostel. They have this wicked pub hopping on Fridays. If you there it’s definitely a MUST do. Our host Peter was beyond amazing , making sure that everybody had a good and a safe at the same time. Shoutout to Peter !!!!! The hostel is very well located

    The only “bad” thing I can say is regarding the room that I was allocated to. I had kind of “upgraded “ 4 bed instead of 12 beds. But the layout wasn’t very good. No way to charge my phone near the bed. Had to leave my phone at the socket near the door ( which wasn’t very convenient )

    Property is well located and very close to 3 tram stops. There is a nice guest kitchen and lots of bathrooms with very good showers. Property had events for guests and a sauna available. Didn’t use the facilities in their second location across the street but they are made available to those staying in backpackers.

    Dorm has many beds and is crowded. Everything was pretty worn out. Bunk above me made a ton of noise whenever the guy would make the slightest movement. Property just needs an update, and maybe more dorm rooms with less beds in each and it would be excellent.

    Location is rather central, city centre is 10-15 minutes walk, plenty of restaurants in the vicinity. Nice park at the end of the street, coast ca. 15 minutes to the north. Bunkbeds have a curtain covering each of them individually, which is a nice touch.

    Not everybody respects personal property when it comes to food in the fridge. Also, in case you need peace and quiet to study or work, suitable space is rather hard to find, especially in the evening.
