About the Room

On Eklundshovsvägen we have 56 single rooms between 20 and 24 square metres in size. Each room includes private bathroom (shower and WC) and kitchenette. The rooms are furnished with a bed and mattress (no pillow or quilt is included), closet, a desk with desk lamp, bookshelf and 2 chairs.

The monthly rent ranges from approx. 5000-6600 SEK/month (autumn 2022) and includes electricity, water and heating.  Internet is provided. There is no wifi, you connect via a net cable to the wall outlet. Due to the economic situation in Sweden today with raised expenses for house owners, tenants will most likely have to face higher than usual rent increases during 2023. We will inform all our tenants as soon as rents have been negotiated.

You can find an interview with one of our tenants at Eklundshofsvägen here.
