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...

I recently visited Stockholm and Goteburg on Februrary 2017. I've been in more than 50 hostels all over the world (USA, Mexico, Germany, UK, Colombia, etc) so let me tell you that this Slottsskogens Hostel is the worst hostel of all. Really when I entered the room, I thought it was a joke. I asked for a 4 bed mixed...

Christian D, Owner at Slottsskogens Hostel, responded to this review

Hi there. We are very concerned to make all our customers happy with their stay. If you look at all other reviews, then you can see proof for that. But it is not fair to reserve a bed in a room without window and then get angry about the fact that window is lacking. We have one category of room...

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
