Svanen Hotel & Youth Hostel
Reviewed 22 January 2013

A hostel and small hotel with private hotel rooms, private hostel rooms with shared showers and dorms all available to suit your budget. Not in the center of Kalmar itself but about a 15min walk away and set in a quiet area. There is a shop close by for basic groceries and the bus stop is right in front of the hostel if you are not in the mood to walk into town. The staff are friendly and helpful and the hostel is quiet, clean and well maintained. Stayed in a private room with toilet and shared shower. The room was small but adequate with beds, linen, desk, lamp and small tv. The communal showers were always kept very clean. They have a B&B option and the breakfast is quite good. The kitchen is spacious but could do with some more cooking utensils as cutting boards and knives were in short supply. But it is adequate for some basic cooking. Will stay again if in Kalmar.

Reviewed 26 November 2012

I stayed in a single-room in the hostel section. The room had 2 single beds and a toilet + sink. There were two shared shower rooms in the corridor (also clean).

It is located in Ängö - around 10-15 minutes walk to central Kalmar. Very quiet residential area with one pizzeria a few houses down and a small grocery store a few blocks down. The staff are very friendly and helpful.

The kitchen is shared for the entire hostel and although contains ovens, fridges and microwaves it can get quite crowded when the hostel is full. There is also a lack of proper knives for other utensils. It is fine if one is staying a few days but can be a bother if staying for longer periods (few weeks or months!).

Just outside Kalmar, a nice clean hostel.
I would prefer to stay in a place inside the very beautiful Kalmar than in Svanen, but we had a car and the place offers a parking space just outside.
Breakfast is typical, served in a nice hall.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with private bathroom, if you don't like public ones.
