“Suitable budget accommodation”
Reviewed 18 August 2013

I recently stayed for 2 nights in Malmo with a friend to attend a football game at the Swedbank Stadion. We chose Bosses as it is only a 15 minute walk to the stadium and was low cost.
Guests will need to realise and remember this is a hostel, NOT hotel, and has shared kitchen and lounge area facilities. It is a 15-20 minute walk into the central areas of Malmo from Bosses.

The positives - Low cost.
-Free WiFi.
-5 minute walk from Sodervarn bus station, a station to catch the Flybussarna to and from Malmo Sturup airport and local buses to other areas of the city etc.
-Rooms were decent size and beds comfy.
- Malmo city maps and visitor guides etc provided free of charge.

The negatives :- Rooms are not en-suite. There were 2 toilet/shower rooms servicing a floor of about 10 rooms, which probably could be an inconvenience at busy times.
-Bed linen and towels are not provided in initial cost, they costed us 70SEK (£7.00) each on top of initial cost to rent for our stay.
-Bosses was initially a bit tricky to find, as there is only a small sign above the front door. If you arrive at Sodervarn bus station, walk down the 1st left street you encounter and it is a red brick building on the left hand side of the street.

Overall, suitable budget accommodation to explore Malmo or if going to the Swedbank Stadion.

My wife, a friend, and I recently stayed here while we were in Malmo, Sweden. It's a pretty nice hostel compared to the last one we were in. We got a private room for three and were surprised on how big the room was. You can either rent a set of sheets or bring your own. They provide a full kitchen and bathroom with shower. I really have nothing bad to say about this place, is was great. Also, the owner is pretty cool. We were running late for our train back from Denmark and I called the number provided in my reservation and we were able to work out how we could get into the hostel even though she wasn't going to be there. Overall I would say that I'd come back here again. One last thing, if you are looking for some good food, once you step out of Bosses and head left, you will find some really good restaurants.

Pluses: Simple cosy room, very clean place. Wifi connection in good level. The beds were very comfortable, the kitchen was fully available for guests the same as living room (with nice sofa!). Every room had TV-set. The bathroom was located on the corridor, however it wasn't so busy so can be easily used without waiting. Hot water all the time, in the kitchen you can prepare a dinner and make some hot drinks. Every guest/room has its own shelf with a number of the room - very good idea I must say! The owner was friendly and very helpful with our late check-in. The area is quiet same as the hotel insWastebin wasn't cleaned regular, windows were not that good - we felt some cold from the outside without opening them. Problem with paying debit cards (solved at the end). Payment for bed linen - for that kind of price it should be in price of the room. ide so we had good sleep during our stay. Recommended!
