The location is nice, in an old sailor house. The place is clean and calm, at least when i stayed there. The breakfast is a good and cheap for swedish standards. However this is a tipical state-run swedish hostel, so there is no feeling of being part of a community. People also go there with their family, so the guest are from 18 years old to 70 and none try to mix with the other guests. The staff is friendly but definitly not ready to do anything to help you. I needed to print a 1 page boarding pass and got refused the access to the printer... and told to go to the city library which is 20 min away by tram...

The hostel itself is located about 20 minutes walk from the centre, or 3-4 tram stops. The rooms themselves are rather small and not too well ventilated, although despite the fact I stayed in July, didnt get too hot. Internet is available at a cost.

The reception service was very helpful however.

Breakfast is reasonably priced and tasty, but the main issue was the small breakfast room. Also watch out, since there is an approx 4-5 hour period in the daytime where the reception is closed and you cannot check in.

Dont forget to take a lock for the lockers, when I arrived they had also sold out!

If I were to stay again, I would look for alternative hostels although if unavailable, I would consider stopping here again.

We went to Gothenburg to celebrate New Years Eve and staied at this cozy place. The room was a 8 bed dorm but we only inhabitat with 3 people, us 2 and one other. The layout of the hostel is quite strange as it has several wings and you need to know how to get to yours. Anyway, the location is great due to the fact that the tram and buses leave right infront of your door, supermarkets are just around the corner (check the opening times, strange too) and you can walk to a lot of places of interest (maritime museum, churches, observatorium) as well. The hostel was overall clean and most visitors, at least in our wing, have been in their late 20s up to the late 30s which made the stay quiet and enjoyable. The beds were bunks but wider than normal ones which raised the sleep quality. One problem is that the hostel doesn't offer lockers but only open shelfs to store ones stuff.

I arrived at night in Helsinki.... got the place name by chance on the city map brochure... was unlucky for me as there are some roadwork going on near the hostel.. the staff directed me to the nearest tram stop possible and advise me that i need to walk a little.... hostel is located at a hilly side of town so it was a bit difficult for me to drag my heavy bag (thank god for roller bags!!!) up the hill... otherwise its very easy to reach the place. Very convenient location... near the seaside.. supermarket is just around the corner and open until late night... restaurant around the area are a bit on the expensive side so.. the Hostel kitchen was very useful for me for the next 2 nights. the busses are a bit confusing as i can't understand the language.. but trams very efficient... goes everywhere i need to go... wifi is strong... the place is very quiet at night... very good for light sleepers... rooms are a bit small but adequate...

This hostel is a very good place to stay as a base to explore the beautiful city of Gothenburg with a regular tram service which runs practically to the door. It has several supermarkets with-in close proximity as well as a park and a nice walk down to the water.
The hostel itself was ok, the rooms were rather small but clean and were furnished with bunk beds a small table and chairs plus a sink. There is a small court yard here too which was nice to sit out in on a warm evening however to get to our room you had to travel through this which would not be too nice in heavy rain etc.
The hostel offers breakfast for around 5€ which we did not have but looked alright. There was no free parking at this hostel, with only a very small carpark next to it which chargers (but is not overly expensive).
The only other thing is if you are not a member of the IYHA you have to pay extra and you have to hire bed sheets to so it can become more expensive then you may have originally thought. Other than this it was a nice hostel with good transport links and servied it's purpose well.
