Stayed for one night. Did not meet Charlotte or Robert in person, the 30's couple who have opened this new hostel, as all arranged by phone: all very efficient and helpful, which a personal check in call from Charlotte, access and directions all easily arranged and confirmed by SMS. The hostel is a large, spacious, detached house from the 1800's, in a quite corner. Originally owned by a religious organisation, and at one time used as priest accommodation, it has a preservation order on it and has just recently been restored to a high standard, preserving many of the original features, and clearly has alot of thought put into it. All white inside, wooden floors throughout, rooms which are airy with good proportions, and really good sturdy doors & locks on each room. I stayed in one of the 'hotel room' and hired sheets/towel from the hostel ( as is a usual in Swedish hostels). Great feather duvet on the bed. Wifi access throughout and a well stocked kitchen ( equipment) and dining area. Quite, clean and with a good ambiance. The location is great, right in the centre, near to the station, and one can walk to the large supermarket, Hemköp, about 10 minutes down Kungsängsgatan, which is open every night until 22:00 hrs ,( a big plus in a town where things close relatively early). I really liked staying here and the price was really good for Uppsala. Wish Robert and Charlotte all the best in their new venture and would recommend staying here.
