Although it regularly fills up with Swedish students looking for more permanent accommodation in Gothenburg, this out-of-the-way hostel is – for short-term stays at least – a bit of a turkey.
It’s not that the accommodation is bad; it’s clean-ish and fairly comfortable, with an open-air veranda and a big kitchen and dining area.
But the small rooms do little to justify the relatively high prices. Stretched out along a yellowed and quite musty corridor, most of them share bathrooms and they don’t have much in the way of in-room facilities, besides a couple of narrow beds.
Despite all of that, this is one of the few hostels in Gothenburg giving serious discounts for longer-term stays. Stay in a twin room for a couple of weeks and the nightly rate will drop by more than a hundred kronor. Longer than that and you may be able to negotiate a rate of around 350 SEK per night – very cheap if you’re sharing with a friend, but still not great if you’re alone.
Location-wise, this place is okay if you’re planning a trip to Liseberg, which has an entrance along the same road, but it’s a bit of hike from here to the main spots for eating, drinking, and partying.
