Uppsala City Hostel
Reviewed 10 June 2012

City Hostel is well located, about six blocks to the train/bus station.

The rooms are quite basic. The bathroom areas have been recently redone and are nice. The whole place could use an update, but it was a fine place to stay.

The kitchen was small but functional. Nice TV room for lounging.

Nothing stands out here, but I would stay here again.

The extra breakfast was 55 SEK and was typical--boiled eggs, ham, salami, cheese, muesli, yogurt, and the rest of the sandwich fixings (it's the least expensive breakfast I've seen in Sweden).

One issue was traffic noise. I had a room on the main street, and, early in the morning, it became difficult to sleep. I would request a room not on the main street.

Room Tip: Ask for a room not on the main street (the one running from the train station)

Staff were unbelievably ignorant and rude. We arrived late at night and had informed the staff. We had trouble gaining access to our room to eventually find a dirty room with broken furniture & no bed sheets. Prison like accommodation and staff not available to help. We had to seek alternative accomodation after one awful night in this dump!

Near downtown and not so far from the train and bus station, this hostel is simply an hostel, with less charm but clean rooms; look at the reception opening time!

The Uppsala hostel (Vandrarhem in Swedish) had the typical opening hours of only around supper time which is so typical of Swedish hostels. It was nice and clean and our double room was certainly adequate and the place had the usual kitchen and tv room. But the place had no soul. Once you were in (you had to pass three gates with the right gate opening passcode numbers) it seemed like just a place to crash. But it is located right in the middle of town and only two blocks or so from the train station and buses, in the midst of loads of restaurants and stores, and a short walk to the university area. It might have been just bad luck but the showers seemed to be out of order save for one.
