STF Alingsås/Hjälmared Hostel

More about STF Alingsås/Hjälmared Hostel

Welcome to our beautiful, relaxing manor house.

Hjälmared is predominantly a folk high school providing residential adult education but during the summer we serve as a meeting place for people of all ages and places who come together for courses and conferences. Our hostel accommodation is of a high standard, spread across a number of different buildings, each with their own individual charm and function. We have single or double rooms with shared or en suite WC/shower. We also have dormitories ideal for larger groups. There is a self-catering kitchen, a TV room and laundry room. The hostel is ideally situated for a wide range of outdoor activities with wonderful countryside for walking, a beach volleyball pitch, tennis court and a small football pitch, not to mention an 18-hole golf course next door. We have our own swimming spot and hire out canoes. Just 3 km away is Alingsås’ most popular public bathing spot and we are only 4 km away from the centre of town. It’s a 30 minute drive to Gothenburg and Borås.

We’ve made a conscious choice to create a drug and alcohol-free environment. This applies to the folk high school, the hostel and conferences.

We are happy to cater for groups. If requested, we can serve all your daily meals and we have well-equipped conference facilities. Our full-size sports hall makes us an ideal venue for training camps. We look forward to hearing from you!
