The location is very good, close to the railway station, the shopping district and historical monuments. A single room is small but clean. I find the option to pay 80 SEK for renting sheets and a towel a bit awkward, but still acceptable if it lowers the price. I was woken up late at night by the reception guy who...

Perfect position in the center of Uppsala, clean and tidy common spaces and nice rooms. Really not a bad Hostel for its price, but it is actually ridicolous to be forced to pay the sheets if you didnt bring them with you. Also the guy at the reception not only cant speak english, but also the situation isnt better if...

I stayed at the Hostel for three nights and it cost me around £99 / SEK 1,335. I didn’t realise (because I hadn't read the hostel details closely enought) that bed linen and towels had to be rented (you could bring your own but sleeping bags are not allowed) at a small additional cost (which for me, the receptionist waived)....

The room was spacious and clean, although some pieces of furniture were a bit worn out. There's a sufficient number of toilets and bathrooms, which are generally clean and modern, but often smelly and some pieces of equipment are rusty. Also it was cold in the room, despite there not being very cold outside (wonder how cold is it during...

the hostel is comfortable and in a great location. but the toilets smell absolutely foul - like stale urine. our friend came to visit us, and the first two nights it has not been a problem and the man at the desk didn't say anything. but then the so called "owner" of the hostel said no outside guests allowed. i...

This is an excellent hostel: spotlessly clean and tidy with good ratio of toilets and showers to the number of guests; well appointed kitchen and TV room/lounge, free internet. Plenty of hot water. V close to train and bus terminals - less than 5 min walk. Optional (bought) buffet breakfast available at 55kr. If I came back to Uppsala I'd...

The hostel is really nice. I stayed in a 4-bed female dormitory. It was a nice room, big enough. The bathrooms were really nice and clean. I want to stress is, it was really clean! Breakfasts were tasty and there was always enough food (yoghurt, bread, eggs, ham, cheese ...). Kitchen was also clean and nice. Staff were friendly and...

On our arrival I found out that I have to pay an extra 60 SEK for bedsheets and more for towels. Own sleeping bags weren't allowed and who in the world travels with their own bedsheets? They should have included this in the price and not charge you for the surprises. The location is excellent. The showers were a walk...

My room was clean, comfortable and very quiet . I had requested a quiet room. The shower was excellent and my bed comfortable. No bedside table and the decor was quite drab. The breakfast was OK although at times rather chaotic. Coffee, crockery and plates ran out and it seemed the breakfast room was understaffed. Staff were pleasant and obliging.
