Göteborg Hostel

Hostel Göteborg

Welcome to our hostel

STF Vandrarhem Stigbergsliden is in an attractive old building dating back to 1854. Close to the port and just 3km from the centre of this maritime city, it makes a good base for exploring Göteborg's canals, avenues, galleries and gardens. Tram stops are located very close to the hostel making it very simple to travel to and from the city.

Accommodation is in 1-6 bedded rooms and facilities include free Wi-Fi, a daily breakfast buffet with homemade bread, a kitchen on each floor with a dining area and TV, and a courtyard that’s great for sitting outside during the warmer months and provides a great way for guests to interact. This hostel is very calm and relaxing and a great place to recharge your batteries in between sightseeing.

Gothenburg is a popular destination for tourists on the Swedish west coast and offers a number of cultural and architectural highlights.

I liked that the doors were very sturdy and felt safe. I would have appreciated a locker in my dorm room. I think it should be mandatory to rent sheets because a dorm mate didn't and someone else will have to use the duvet he slept with.

Die Sauberkeit der Gemeinschaftsküche könnte besser sein, die Sanitäranlagen und das Zimmer waren gut sauber. Der Frühstücksraum kann überfüllt sein. Wie bekannt hatte das Gruppenzimmer kein eigenes Bad; die Sanitäranlagen waren ausreichend verfügbar. Einige Fenster des Zimmers könnten besser schließen.

3 km vom Bahnhof entfernt; Straßenbahnhaltestelle ist in der Nähe & ab dort ausgeschildert; älteres Gebäude steht einen Hang hoch. Schiefe Böden also, die massiven Holzhochbetten kippen aber nicht um. Es gibt viel Info-Material zur Stadt; kleine Küche im Dachgeschoß neben Gemeinschaftsraum; keinen Backofen aber 4 Mikrowellen mit mehreren Funktionen; kleiner Frühstücksraum gegeüber der Rezeption bietet gutes Frühstück. Für einen Aufenthalt in Göteborg würden wir eine stadtnähere Herberg empfehlen.

This hostel had very friendly staff and online pre-payment went well. My room was out towards the street, so there was the noise from the tram. Additionally, the doors are quite loud -- I don't think it's possible to close them quietly. The beds are a bit shaky, so the whole two bed bunk will move if one of the people inside only so much as turns over. I found this made it a little hard to sleep well, but this might be because I'm a little sensitive as well.
