    Very clean, which certainly isn’t the case in all hostels! The dormitory room also had a lot of floor space which was nice. It’s a bit far from the centre of town but I think that’s actually a good thing, the hostel is in a really nice area so you see more of the ‘real’ Gothenburg, not just the tourist stuff.

    This accomodation was very clean and modern. Located in a very calm neighbourhood and only a few minutes from the bus stop, the location was more than satisfactory. Additionally, the rooms were clean and with a safety lockers and the kitchen well equipped. Compared to other hostels, this one had a lot of bathrooms and toilets so you did not have to wait to shower. The breakfast was tasty with a wide choice of food. The Hostel also offers the free walking tour and you can buy some souvenirs at the information desk.

    The hotel was spotless and cosy. Room was a little small for 4 adults as it had bunk beds but it was clean and comfortable. The staff were lovely and helpful, especially Magdalena she was amazing. Super friendly and welcoming and provided us with local information. Breakfast was also very tasty with a good selection. Overall would definitely recommend for a budget hotel in a great location.

    - Great location and the area seems safe. - Very quiet at night. It's a small hostel. - Willys supermarket is right across the street from the hostel, open until 9pm. - This place is probably best for a stay of just one or two nights, in my opinion.

    We really enjoyed the beds, they were extremely comfortable. Moreover, the hostel and the showers were very clean. The common area and the kitchen were really quiet. We stayed in a room of 4 people and it was very well isolated of sound. Best hostel I have ever been to! Thank you Backpackers Göteborg!!
