Welcome to our hostel

The Hostel of Björkfors is located in beautiful nature, where you can enjoy the tranquillity, hospitality and a homely atmosphere. Here you will find a lovely venue in the scenic Björkfors, the treasure of Kindabygden.

The hostel is situated between the lakes of Björken and Åsunden. The building dates from 1853 and was a school for local children for many years before is became a hostel. Inside we have a cosy atmosphere and outside, we have a nice garden with a fireplace.

Åsunden has direct access to the Kinda Canal and is ideal for canoe trips and nature around the hostel, inviting those for cycling and hiking. Many nature reserves in the surrounding area are well worth discovering., Breakfast is available for an extra fee.

BJÖRKFORS war ein tolles Erlebnis! Die Ausstattung ist für Selbstversorgung ist prima, wir hatten ein tolles Zimmer. Die Herbergsleute haben Zeit, gute Tips und sorgen für eine angenehme Atmosphäre. Man kann paddeln, Radfahren und Schwimmen, sich einfach Wohlfühlen.

Turns on : Tranquil. Fragrance of forest. Lake with big fishes. Nice Kitchen. Comfortable room. Fast Internet. There is nothing turns down about the hostel itself, but the access to and from the hostel would be difficult without car and public bus.
