Slottsskogens Youth Hostel
Lonely Planet review
Unlike many Swedish hostels, big, friendly Slottsskogen is a cracking place for meeting other travellers. For a small extra payment there’s access to a laundry, sauna and sun bed, and the buffet breakfast (Skr55) is brilliant. Parking spaces can be booked for a fee and reception is closed between noon and 2pm. Take tram 1 or 6 to Olivedalsgatan.
Our independent authors have visited Slottsskogens Youth Hostel and selected this as one of our recommended hostels in Göteborg (Gothenburg).
