Nice location, and very friendly staff. Francesco was very welcoming for the night activities and ensured everyone was having fun. Would definitely come back, and highly recommend to anyone wanting to make new friends from other parts of the world.

Francesco and his events here were a highlight, ask to go into the main building as the second building was a little run down. Would come back again if ever back in Gothenburg. There was also a young gentleman on the desk on the 31st October from one of the islands. He was super helpful and gave me some good...

Convenient location with easy access by Tram, Bus or walking. Easy access to restaurants, bars and supermarkets. The staff are quite friendly. They only offer breakfast and it is good spread of a typical Swedish breakfast. The rooms are clean however even if booked as a hotel linen and towel changes are not so common, and I stayed for 6...

An incredible initiative of the hostel is to have someone organizing initiatives to help people gather and improve their experience at the city.

I spent three nights at the hostel and could not fault it! It's a large and spaced-out hostel, but Francesco is in charge of events and brought the numbers together to cook up some awesome (and extremely cheap) meals and head out to bars. As far as hostel experiences go, I personally found his initiative to be awesome! I ended...

My colleagues and I stayed at Slottsskogens Hostel for about one week during out course at the University of Gothenburg. The location of the place it awesome - very close to the city centre but in quite quiet neighbourhood. The hostel also organizes nice night activities during weekend. We joined Francesco several times and had a lot of fun.
