The price is OK, the room good enough. The dining room is huge with a kitchen well equipped. What I really liked about my stay in the hostel is the friendly climate among the customers and the morning visit of the city that a member of the hostel arranged for us. It's always the best thing to visit a city...

Awesome stay in Gothenburg. Very social hostel and daily/nightly activities. This was made possible by hostel favourite Franceso. His ability to bring people together from all different parts of the world and foster friendships was appreciated. I highly recommend attending one of his drinking sessions (especially the free pub crawl!) and a walking tour whilst in the city! Will definitely...

Hostel is pretty standard, nice enough with all of the necessary components of a hostel: wifi, clean beds, etc I enjoyed my time here mostly because of the other people staying in the hostel and Francesco, the tour guide for all of the events. He really made an effort to get to know everyone that we went out with on...

Quick summary, based on what I expect of a hostel: very neat and clean; good security; very friendly, helpful staff. Good location to trams/buses; nice neighborhood of restaurants and shops. I supervised a small group of college students visiting Goteborg. While the rooms vary a little, all are very small, i.e. pack light. My room (#529) seemed a bit smaller...

Francesco organizes events almost every night. So if you're keen to get to know new people it's really awesome :) I really enjoyed it! So the next time I'll be there again to have fun with some strangers

Clean rooms and the bathrooms were also ok! Had great fun on Saturday evening when Francesco (funny Italian guy who is working at the hostel) played a drinking game with us - was great fun and a great chance to meet new people. He also went with us to some other bars afterwards which was also fun!

The Hostel presents itself in a definitely good way. It is located in a really cool zone of the city, near to supermarkets and restaurants. The kitchen is very spacious and equipped. As well as the kitchen also the toilets are cleaned and (what's more important) are enough, so that you don't have to wait to use one. The staff...
