“Great stay!”
Reviewed June 11, 2014

Such a lovely place to stay, with friendly and helpful staff, and very clean rooms. The place is quiet and peaceful, the bed is comfy, and I had very good sleep there (which is unusual for me because I normally don't sleep well in unfamiliar places). They have a kitchen for guests so you can cook there and store your food in the fridge.The hostel is located very close to the central station, making it very easy to walk around enjoying the beauty Lund has to offer. The only problem is the wifi - it cannot be used inside your room, and you'll have to go to the common kitchen area to catch it. But other than that I'm highly satisfied with my stay, and will definitely come back there again if I have a chance. Thank you for your wonderful services!

Hi Yen Mai,

We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay with us so much and that you wrote about it at TripAdvisor.

The last pieces of equipment needed for connecting our WiFi to the fibre network of Lund are now delivered and we are on gigaspeed...

Welcome back!

We were 3 guys having an excellent stay at Winstrup. Location is superb near the center, everything is clean and modern.

Compared to other accomodation options the price is competitive, but still slightly expensive, compared to the general level of European Hostels.

Hi Bernard,

Thanks for your positive review!

We got a bit curious about the comments on prices so we decided to check it a bit more. You are absolutely right about our prices. Extremely competitive in Lund and we guess this is the reason why so many of our guests also comment how cheap we are... :-)

At the same time you are also right that we actually are priced a bit above average in Europe. As comparison our prices are spot on the average for Amsterdam, cheaper than Paris and higher than Berlin... We believe this is a direct reflection of the general price levels in Sweden given the relatively strong SEK vs. the EUR. We can assure you that we are fighting hard to keep our prices as low as we can...

Welcome back next time you are in Lund!

Cheers,

Klas

This is the best budget option if you are visiting Lund. Located centrally it is ideal for exploring Lund on foot. Close to bus and train station (for reaching Malmö and Copenhagen). Everything was clean and new. I had the lower bed, it was more pleasant and convenient then the upper ones. Staff was really helpful. Only one small suggestion: put the wifi in rooms:)

Hi Srdjan,

Thanks so much for your nice review about us!!!

We agree totally that the upper bunks are a bit challenging to climb and this is also why we always prepare the beds for our guests, which we believe is quite unusual in hostels. Our staff have become specialists in entering upper bunks in a fast and safe manner... :-)

We are also happy to inform you that we have now finally received the last pieces of equipment needed to get our new giga-speed network connected so we should be up and running very soon throughout the whole hostel.

Most welcome back next time you visit our little town!

I'm travelling around Sweden and this was my favourite hostel so far. Nice rooms and beds, helpful staff and very central. Everytime very clean and nice. I'd totally chose this place again if I come back to Lund.

I can warmly recommend Winstrup. I stayed here for a week and it is a really nice place with a very good price for Swedish standards. It's clean, stylish, great service (late check in, flexibility with cancellations/ travel plan adjustments and friendly staff... everything was smooth and unproblematic).

Why not 5 dots ("Excellent"):

1) Internet is quick, but only available in the lobby/common area and not in the rooms.

2) The upper beds are a bit challenging to climb into, as the ladders are slightly remote from the bed. No problem for the physically fit (or even semi-fit) traveller, but if you have a handycap of any kind or plan on returning home tired and tipsy after a long night out, ask for the lower bunk, just to be on the safe side.

Having said this, I will definitely come back for my next stay in Lund and warmly recommend it to anyone who needs accommodation in the Lund/Malmö area.

Room Tip: Ask for lower bunk bed in a 6 bed dorm to get the best out of your stay here.

Hi Roman,

Thanks for your great review! We really appreciate that you took your time to write about us. We of course agree that the upper bunks are a bit challenging for those unfit, afraid of heights or if you have had a bit too much to drink... :-)

This is also why we always have our staff making the beds, which we believe is quite unusual in hostels. Our staff have become specialists in entering upper bunks in a fast and safe manner... :-)

We are also happy to inform you that we have now finally received the last pieces of equipment needed to get our new giga-speed network connected so we should be up and running very soon throughout the whole hostel

My stay at Winstrup was pleasant.me and my husband were in a mixed room with six beds for the nights. The breakfast served of decent good. The place is well situated and has helpful staff. I only have two suggestions .. Please get wifi inside the rooms and please check the beds, few of them make all amount of noise when moving on it.

Hi Prajakta,

Thanks for your nice review! We fully agree with both your comments and we have now also solved the problems - both with the noise from a couple of the beds (it was a few screws missing) and with the WiFi, where we now have "giga-speed" throughout the whole place.

Cheers,

I'm sure I stay here next time, nice people great beds and all is new and clean. Its a relaxed place, not a party hostel. Close to bars, restaurants, university and the train station. If you stay here its easy to go to Malmö and copenhagen with train.
Thanks /Roine

Thanks for your very nice review, Roine! And you're absolutely right - our profile is clear, we do not want to become a party hostel. There are lots of other places to party in Lund and we instead think that Winstrup shall be cool, relaxed and comfortable.

Most welcome back next time you're in Lund!
