Hostelz.com's Review
Kville Hotel Bed & Breakfast is an excellent, cheap hostel located in northern Gothenburg, only about five minutes north of the central station by tram. Linens, towels, and breakfast are included in the price, and the hostel overall has a nice quiet atmosphere.

The Location

The hostel is about a five-minute walk from a main tram and bus station (Hjalmar Brantingsplatsen). From this stop, head straight east along the main street, then turn right on the first street after a bridge. The hostel is right on that street. The neighborhood itself is very quiet and calm, and made up of mostly small stores or restaurants, and apartment buildings. From the tram station Hjalmar Brantingsplatsen, it is only five minutes to the city center. With the extensive public transportation system, getting around Gothenburg is very easy.

Rooms and Bathrooms

The rooms -- especially the dorms -- are fairly spacious; the beds are slightly old and squeak, but are very soft. Rooms also have closets and drawers, which is a nice bonus. Bathrooms and showers are separate, but are all individual. This is especially nice for people who want some privacy. Bathrooms and showers are well kept and clean.

Common Spaces

The hostel has two common spaces -- a small "living room" area next to the reception desk (next to the entrance), which consists of two couches and a TV as well as the main common area, the kitchen/dining room. The dining room has plenty of tables and chairs and is very organized, almost like a cafeteria. Free coffee and tea are provided; there is even a coffee machine. Breakfast is provided by the hostel, and is quite extensive for a hostel meal. There is also a couch and a coffee table at the end of the hallway where the dorm rooms are located, but it's too small to be a social hangout place. Free Wi-Fi is available in the common areas as well as in the rooms. There is also a public computer for guests to use.

Summary

Overall, we are extremely satisfied with the hostel and would definitely recommend it for anyone staying in Gothenburg. It's a very cheap option compared with other hostels; the only negative is that the reception desk closes at 6 p.m., so if you are arriving after that time, you would have to arrange it with the hostel beforehand.
