Slottsskogens Vandrarhem & Hotell
If the elevator would have been working - it would have been a perfect stay. It was one of my considerations when I choose a place to stay. Sadly, on my arrival and departure - it wasn't working. But all else were great - reception, room, toilet, laundry, common kitchen. Location is also okay. From train station, just take Bus No 60.

Reasonably priced and clean; subdued atmosphere
This is quite a big hostel so can seem a little impersonal, but i found it fairly clean and one staff member in particular to be quite helpful. I was here on a Sunday and Monday and the hostel was very quiet, but I understand that they do have organised activities on other days of the week. Downside is that the hostel is a little far from Central Station (but bus 60 takes you very close). The private rooms are reasonably priced but don't have windows.

Decent rooms, good activities - would recommend
I loved my four nights in Gothenburg because I was staying here! I stayed in a double (2 twin beds) room by myself as there were no female dorms left when I booked online a few weeks before my arrival. Room was small, but that was expected. Plenty of clean wc/shower rooms down the hall. Kitchen was kept impressively clean by staff. The best part of my stay was the activities led by Francesco and Leo - I did a walking tour and two evening food/drink activities. It was a great way to meet people at the hostel, especially since I wasn't in a dorm room. I would definitely recommend Slottsskogens Vandrarhem & Hotell to a friend!
