Turn left onto Vasagatan, and follow it about 500 meters until you reach a square called Norra Bantorget. Pass by the square. On the other side of the square, Vasagatan changes names to Upplandsgatan, and there we are at number 2A, the main entrance is on the street corner. The night entrance is a little bit further on the same side of the street.
