Views of car park. Not in the beautiful heart of Uppsala but only a short stroll. Hand held shower needed a button kept pressed to get water out: ideal for people with three arms!


The room was not clean enough and it was smelling not pleasant inside. Corridors, WC/Shower, and kitchen was not clean enough either. Old and smelly carpets in the corridors. Old furniture in the room. Facilities: poor..

Hello, in general the hostel was ok, you just have to keep in mind that some rooms don't have a window at all or only into a hallway. Furthermore the cleaning staff did a great job every morning. Unfortunately, they had a lot of work to do because some guests behaved quite untidy and dirty during the time of my stay. (toilet and kitchen were usually ok after the cleaning staff has taken care of them)

Especially the kitchen was really dirty, no lockers or table in the room, no new toiletpaper for about 4 days in our private toilett.


The kitchen was a mess, but probably it did not have anything to do with the hostel but with the other visitors.


It was a bit difficult to find the hostel and it isn't exactly close to the center although it's still in good walking distance. Hostelstaff was helpful when asked but not as acomodating as in other hostels. The atmosphere was a bit weird since there weren't many people around and noone seemed to want to engage with each other. The mixture of hostel and hotel and also the location with the windows going to this canopied courtyard maybe gave way to this weird feeling. The kitchen was not the best
