STF Forsvik Hostel
Göta Kanal and beautiful nature in idyllic Västergötland
About the accommodationWelcome to Forsvik and an equally beautiful and unique environment with historic buildings and a rich cultural life. Located in Västergötland, surrounded by the Göta Canal, Lake Bothnia and fantastic landscapes, this is an idyllic little town with history.
With us, you stay quietly just a stone’s throw from the Göta Canal and the old mill area. The building was built for the workers in 1860 and has since been carefully renovated both inside and out. The rooms are large and airy, with genuine details preserved, such as floral wallpaper, iron stoves and scrub floors. We have a total of twelve rooms in different sizes, some with private bathroom and kitchenette. It is possible to rent bed linen and towels from us, so you can pack light. There is access to a guest kitchen and TV room. During the summer months it is possible to book a breakfast plate.
We also have a little shop with a carefully selected range of sustainable, environmentally friendly products and gadgets dating back to the past. In addition, a nibbling good small selection of snacks, sweets and drinks, to make your stay a little more enjoyable.
Check-in: During mid-June – mid-August we have a staffed reception/shop and time for check-in between 15:00 and 17:00. If you wish to check in after 17.00, please contact us in good time via email or phone and we will sort it out.
In the period outside of mid-June to mid-August, we are not open at the reception daily, which is why you must always contact us to arrange check-in.
Check-out is at 11.00.
