Our 1 047 single rooms feature a shared kitchen for every 4 or 8 rooms. There are also 12 furnished single rooms adapted for disabled persons, sharing a common kitchen.

One extra feature is our short term rental service, which enables friends and relatives to visit one or more nights at a very reasonable price, see www.sgsveckobostader.se.
