About Masthuggsterassens Vandrarhem - Hostel, Gothenburg

Modern hostel, close to ferry terminals and Linnégatan

City center: 20 minutes

Masthuggsterassens Vandrarhem overlooks the harbor, 14 minutes' walk from the ferry terminal and 10 minutes from the hip cafés and shops around Linnégatan. The tram ride from Central Station via the center takes 16 minutes, and it's 22 minutes to Liseberg amusement park.

Short walk to Feskekörka

The view from Skansen Kronan fortress is a good way to get your bearings, and busy Feskekörka food market is great for fresh seafood - it's also popular for weddings. Röda Sten, a 20-minute tram ride away, hosts gigs and edgy exhibitions in a disused power station.

Full kitchen

You can kick off your day by whipping something up in the modern, fully equipped kitchen. The bright and cheerful dining room is a also a great place to hang out and swap tips with other travelers.

Friendly vibe, free WiFi

Rooms and dorms are light and airy, with functional Scandinavian design and an uncluttered feel, and some also come with harbor views. Free WiFi keeps you connected, most rooms have a flat-screen TV, you can hire sheets and towels, and the clean, modern bathrooms are close by.

Midweek business stay
Not the easiest place to find (it is up a long flight of stairs, off the main road), but a friendly welcome at reception. Good communication (via email) before I arrived, checking if I wanted to order bed linen, etc (as it's a hostel). Room was modern, clean, comfy bed. All the bathrooms are shared (located out in the main corridor), but I never had any issue with toilets/showers being occupied whilst I stayed. There's a communal living room and also a kitchen area allowing you to cook meals, etc, and space allocated in the fridges for each room so you can keep food in there). I stayed here as there was a book fair on in Gothenburg so a lot of the hotels were full, but it was fine for everything I needed whilst I stayed.
