Dalagarde Vandrarhem Hostel
One of the cheapest in Gothenburg
This hostel is one of the cheapest in Gothenburg.
I stay in a single room, which is 290Kr /night. From 31/05 until 15/08 is high season which is 20-50Kr more expensive (depends on what type of room you rent), but I think is still very reasonable, compared to the hotels.
The price includes a continental buffet breakfast, but don't expect anything more than cheese and ham. Breakfast is between 0700-0930. But compared with other hostel which charges people 50Kr+, I think this hostel is very generous in this respect.
As a Scandinavian hostel, you need to bring your own sheets (NO sleeping bag, somehow they are very strict about this) and clean after yourself, or you can rent sheets and "buy" cleaning from them, which I don't think is worth the money if you are staying in several hostels at a time.
The hostel is located in a leafy suburb, close to a hospital or clinic. It is very rural and quiet. A lot of green space available and there is a store 10 inches away, but as you guessed, prices tend to be higher than downtown.
Unique Quality: As a guest in this hostel, you are entitle to use the facilities nearby the hostel.
There are three big dayrooms with satellite TV with hardly anyone there. There are two equipped kitchens too. Good news to self-caterer.
If you are staying in a single room like me, then you can expect a room with a bed (obviously), a chair, a TV (without satellite channels) and maybe a washing basin.
But one thing that has to be mentioned is the showers and toilets (but individually closeted) are communal, so for people who are looking for an en-suite room, then I am afraid this is not the place. Try St. Jörgens Hotel down the road
Directions: From the bus stop outside Nordstan, take bus no. 52 towards Skogome and get off at Lillhagsparken Norra (the stop before the last one). The journey takes roughlyabout 20 minutes.
