  • I was only able to stay at Backpackers Göteborg for one night. However, the staff was very friendly and helpful. They got me right in to do some much needed laundry and explained the check in/checkout process thoroughly. Additionally, several staff members were very helpful in explaining how to get around town and to the airport via city transit. If I'm ever in Göteborg again I'll definitely look to come back. Thanks Weston

  • The guy at the night reception was very nice and helpful. Since I had a lot of luggage he told me that I can leave it in the luggage room next to the reception and that there was someone at the reception 24/7. I had to leave early the next morning to go to an important meeting. None was at the reception! A sign said "Back soon". I've waited for 45min!! The kitchen lady chose to completely ignore me. When I finally was able to get a hold of her she opened the room for me. UNACCEPTABLE!!!!

  • Had a nice location, not particularly central, but near a park and some hire bikes to zoom into the centre. Hostel felt quite big and a little bit soulless, but the rooms were nice and had good kitchen/communal space, cleaned regularly. Staff were helpful too. I'd recommend.

  • Good atmosphere! Close to a huge park. Only about 15-20 minutes away from where all the clubs and bars are. Good value for the money! Don't buy the breakfast unless you know you will make it on time because even though it's good, it's a bit pricey and no refunds If u purchase a ticket.

  • Staff spoke fluent English and were very helpful. The rooms were very clean and organised. There are plenty of shared bathrooms. We didn't have to wait much. Location wise the hostel is quite good. The kitchen looked great. All in all there is nothing I can complain about.

  • This is by far my favorite hostel to stay at. They have two buildings adjacent to each other, so lots of rooms and beds available. I stayed in the girls' dormitory, which has twelve beds. I've also stayed in a mixed four-bed room. Both rooms were very spacious, but especially the dorm. Each bed has its own outlet with room for two plugs, a reading light, and a small pouch on the wall. Each bed also has a storage locker underneath it that can be locked. Amazing bathroom and kitchen facilites. A++
