Sweden’s homeless hotel

Duration: 06:13

Gothenburg is known for its annual television, film and music festivals, but there is another side to the city that tourists seldom see. Homelessness is a big issue here.

To highlight the issue, a campaign was launched by a newspaper sold by homeless people in the city offering the chance to join them sleeping rough.

Greg McKenzie booked a "room" in the homeless hotel and tried sleeping rough in Sweden's sub-zero temperatures.
