Liked: Close to bus and train station. Rooms clean.

Disliked: Luggage room was just a closet in hall. Anyone at anytime had access to it. When staying there it was all swedish students who were friendly and fun to talk to but not good for meeting travellers to hang out with in the day.

Liked: Uppsala City Hostel was excellent. I stayed in a single room and it was beautiful. The room was cosy, warm, very clean and well-furnished. There was free coffee available (a nice surprise). The receptionist was happy to answer all my questions. I would definitely recommend staying here.

Disliked: Unfortunately, as is common throughout hostels, one must rent towels and bedsheets. Unavoidable as it is, it seems a little unreasonable to ask for 60kr for bedsheets (I guess if you are staying more than a night then this would be more worthwhile).

Liked: The rooms are small, but very comfortable and nice. Internet connection is great :) The community kitchen is well equipped and clean, nice to make small meals (although breakfast is offered for a fee). Infinite free coffee (and tea) was perfect in the morning. Staff was very helpful with information whenever asked. It's very clean, and not loud at night. I especially appreciated that it is possible to leave the bags in the hostel for a few hours after check-out (I was leaving in the afternoon, and it was great that I did not have to drag my bags around all day).

Disliked: The security code for the entering during the night was changed while I was out, and I met a locked door at 2.30AM. It did resolve quickly: there was a phone number on the door, and I was in within 10 minutes. They staff was really apologetic next morning, saying that they usually let everybody know when they change the code and being really sorry that they skipped me. I as was in the hostel for less than 1 hour a day (except for sleeping), I somewhat understand and think it does not happen often.

Liked: The staff is friendly and helpful. There are lockers in the rooms. Free coffee, tea and laundry. Excellent central location. Close to the train station (but for me it was around 15 mins instead of 5 mins with heavy luggage).

Disliked: The atmosphere is a little unusual for the hostel: most people staying here are 40+. Sometimes not so clean in the showers/toilets.

Liked: Clean and decent location

Disliked: Reception closed from 10am until 4pm, how you can have a 'hostel' that you can't get into for 5 hours if you've arrived just past 10am is beyond me. No real hostel vibe, didn't meet anyone.
