The hostel had a dedicated staff, Franchessco who's main mandate was to show us a good time and he did too. The lodgings were also clean and safe with helpful staff and a pool table and the property is centrally located! I had a good time, totally recommend.

The hostel was in an easy to reach location and facilities were very good. Highlight of the stay was the drinking games and pub crawl which was great fun and a brilliant way to meet like minded travellers from all over the world.

I loved my stay here! Easy to get to and a great location. Games put on by the hostel in the night was great fun with Francesco and a great way to meet new people. The night out after was fantastic too with Francesco showing us some great pubs/bars. Would definitely recommend staying in this Hostel!

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.
