Lunsentorpet

I must admit that this is one of the very few accommodation tips of mine, which is about a place where I actually didn't stay overnight. Still I have visited this place and found it quite unique and interesting.

Lunsentorpet is a sort of wooden cottage, which was set up in 1988. It provides 6 bunk beds, a table with chairs, a fire place and a wood stove for heating and cooking. Outside a water pump and a grill area can be found.

The cottage can't be booked in advance. All facilities can be used for free, but the house rules, which are displayed inside the place, have to be obeyed. At least a sleeping bag is highly recommended to bring.

For more info about Norra Lunsen and how to get there, please also read my off the beaten path tip about it.

Directions:
The wooden cottage Lunsentorpet can be found more or less in the middle of the nature reserve Norra Lunsen, which is situated about 7 km south of Uppsala's city centre. The only way to get to Lunsentorpet is on foot, either along the Uppland trail from Flottsund (ca. 5 km) or on any of the other signposted trails of the nature reserve.

Coucsurfing: A intersthing way of travel

Hi ?

Why don't you try with:
www.couchsurfing.com or www.hospitality.com
both sites (free) are very interesting, you can meet local people, chat about their country or city, and stay at their place (for free)
The fact that you stay for free is not the most important, well that you make friends from a other culture, religion, ethnicity,...

You just made a profile as complete as possible, with a few pictures, so that your future hosts have an idea who you are and what you are looking for, very important.

If you need help in that way , or just will talk about , just drop a line.

Friendly,

Jean-Pierre

Gimo IF vandrarhem: Hostelling International Affiliated but no ads

Excellent amenities and facilities - expensive for hostel accommodation that we are used to elsewhere around Europe but for Sweden and Scandanavia excellent value for money - apparently the expenditure of £1000 a year to advertise in the Swedish hostel book and thus the IH book, has not been approved so this place is not advertised and when everything I had tried for miles around was full one of the no-vacancy replies passed this on to me - when I asked! and so about half an hour drive I had this huge hostel to share with just 2 other guys working in the area.

EVerything is here - internet (access plugs in each bedroom to plug into your laptop), tv (and theres 3 tv rooms), 2 kitchens with get your own breakfast, huge and clean bathrooms and bedrooms.

and a good price - 175 kroner to share a dorm, single room 325 kroner, double room 500 kroner. (but extra for sheets - he gave me a reduced price of 25 kroner for sheets.
50 kroner for breakfast of tea and coffee, juice, cereal, toast, yoghurt, eggs and ham (all make your own) but also includes a cup of tea at night of arrival and on the posters, not mentioned verbally, includes a cheese sandwich at night if wanted.
12 kroner is approximately £1.

As above - with tv and internet facilities that are frequently not available in a lot of hostels - and if you have your own vehicle enjoy the enhanced availability away from the general tourist track in a location surrounded by nice countryside. Its a nice drive from Uppsala or from the north. There are a few interesting sites in the vicinity such as the medieval ironore mines at Donnemara and ironworks at Osterbybruk, castle at Orbyhus, coastal towns of Osthammar and Oregrund and even on into Norrland with Gavle and its famed old town.

Really cheap

There are a number of hostels and private room renters around Uppsala. You may have troble getting in to town though, they can be at a distande of up to 30 kilometres from downtown and the public tranportation may not run close to them.
I suggest you check with the tourist office telephone number:
+46 18-727 48 00
Or try page:
http://res.till.uppland.nu/turist/PDFer/Logilista_Eng.pdf

Some of these pensions and hostels are located in the countryside. In spring and summer the surroundings may be very pretty.

Not downtown

Hotell Muttern is a ten to fifteen minute walk from downtown Uppsala. It is supposedly cheaper than the downtown alternatives.

Hotels in Uppsala

There are several hotels in downtown Uppsala. Unfortunately I have never stayed in any of them, but usually hotel rooms in Sweden are good, but not fancy.
Prices are probably around 100 US dollars/night. But check first.

Hotels downtown, walking distance everywhere are for example:
Hotell Svava (www.swedenhotels.se) Bangårdsgatan 24
Tel: 018 - 13 00 30

Hotell Gillet (SAS Radisson)
Dragarbrunnsgatan 23
Tel: 018 - 68 18 10

Hotell Upplandia (Scandic)
Dragarbrunnsgatan 32
Tel: 018 - 495 26 00

Hotell Linné
Skolgatan 45
Tel: 018 - 10 20 00
