Welcome to our hostel

As the biggest city in Norrland, Umeå has a wide range of shops, restaurants and entertainment. At the same time, the countryside is right on the doorstep, with secluded bays for swimming, hiking trails, ski slopes and nature reserves. Umeå also offers plenty for culture lovers. How about a trip to the opera at Norrlandsoperan or a journey back in time to the 19th century at Gammlia open air museum?

Great stay in a great location. The do-it-yourself policy is a great idea. Unfortunately, the bed linen I had rented and taken to my room upon check-in were not there any more when I came back to sleep late in the evening, which resulted having to sleep in full clothes and not the nicest experience. Also, the check-out procedure guidelines on walls and the given paper were different and conflicting.

Bad opening hours. People who are arriving by ferry have no chance to come in time to the check-in time.

The hostel at Umeå was very clean, comfy and both myself and my friend got a decent nights sleep. The kitchen was brilliantly equipped and also very clean.

no estaría de más, que le dijeran al próximo viajero que alquile una de sus habitaciones y pague con antelación las toallas y sábanas, donde se encuentran guardadas, ya que cuando yo llegué al albergue no había nadie en recepción, las toallas y sábanas que había pagado previamente no estaban en la habitación, y después de un viaje de 12 horas quería ducharme y acostarme, y lo hice, pero sin una toalla limpia para secarme, y sin una sábana con la que acostarme, tuve que usar el edredón nórdico de las camas sobrantes para no acostarme directamente sobre el colchón. Al día siguiente mediante un e-mail me informaron de donde podría encontrar el kit de baño y cama, pero ya me había llevado un disgusto, y por supuesto, no descontaron del precio el kit de la primera noche no usado.
