More about STF Söderhamn/Rönnskär Hostel and Cottages
The idyllic environment at Rönnskär is passed down from the navigators, customs men and fishermen who originally inhabited the island. Today, the island is a summer paradise offering swimming, fishing and an interesting cultural experience.
The entire settlement is currently used for leisure accommodation, and consists of 40 houses built in the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th century. Lilljungfrun’s pilotstation was placed in Rönnskär in 1891; due to there already being a pilotstation by the name of Rönnskär in Byske, Västerbotten, this one was given the name of Lilljungfrun. The name of the Lilljungfrun pilotstation is taken from the island located in connection with the opening of the approach channel to Söderhamn bay and to the Söderhamn harbour facilities. The pilot operation was moved to Ljusne in the late 1970s. Restoration work on the old pilotstation began in 2007, and it was opened as the youth hostel in the summer of 2010. The 16 beds are distributed among one single room, three two-bed rooms and three three-bed rooms.
The common areas on the bottom floor consists of a kitchen (equipped with inter alia a refrigerator, stove, microwave oven and utensils), a shower and a living room. On the upper floor, there is a small living room with a TV. The hostel has free Wi-Fi. In the old pilot lookout at the top of the youth hostel, yet another living room can be found with windows all around and a wood-fired stove. The view is spectacular, to say the least! There are two modern environmental lavatories located in a common outbuilding found just a stone’s throw away from the youth hostel. By the seaside you find a wood-fired sauna with relaxation space built in 2015. Those arriving with their own boats will find special guest places reserved for them in the harbour.
Connection time for the youth hostel at Rönnskär is 11:00 am.
