The owner is nice and friendly and that's the only thing good about this place! The hot water in the shower is on timer and you can only have less than 10 minutes to shower which is RIDICULOUS! and you have to wait for another 10 minutes for the water heater to comeback again.

I'm sorry that you got such a bad impression of the place. But I must emphasize that Villa Sol is a youth hostel, not a hotel and as such, you are given the opportunity to make certain additional services yourself if you like. You weren't charged for neither bedlinen nor departure cleaning, that was all "on the house". The space of the rooms with its own shower/WC is what it is. There are bigger and smaller ones with shared facilities. Those with its own shower and WC are about 18 m2. There is no timer on the shower but the hot water boiler has its set size and capacity, 40 litres. Then you have to wait a little while before the water is hot again. Toilet paper should of course be there. I'm really sorry and have to apologize if there was a too small amount. My fault! There is though always a back-up where every guest can take what's needed if lacking. Best regards Ylva Olofsson

We stayed in one of the cottages when we visited from the USA. Villa Sol is centrally located on the island of Oland which made it easy to visit the whole island and Kalmar. It is in a quiet, garden setting. The owner was responsive to all of our emails. She was delightful and

I have a question to those in charge for Tripadvisor itself but I didn't find the correct way on this page to reach you, so I try this. NB! The telephone number shown for Villa Sol is all wrong. That's a number for Malmö! Hm...Very strange... I urge you to put in the correct telephone number for Villa Sol, which is: + 46 (0)73 578 2747, or + 46 (0)485-562 552 Regards, Ylva Olofsson
