Parts of the hostel were once a junior school for local children and today guests are accommodated in double or multiple-bed rooms.

There are plenty of walking paths and hiking trails close by for excursions on foot or by bicycle, and there are even two heated outdoor pools. Grönhögen’s golf course, one of the country’s finest, is also in the vicinity.

The proximity to Långe Jan lighthouse, Ottenby bird station and Eketorp’s castle makes the hostel a natural starting point for an exiting vacation on Öland.
