Welcome to our hostel

Welcome to Rimforsa/Kalvudden, a clean and friendly hostel built on the peaceful, wooded shore of Lake Åsunden. Located in the heart of the scenic province of Östergötland.

Our hostel is surrounded by pastoral farmlands and forests, lakes and nature reserves. This area has been inhabited and farmed since the Stone Age.


The main hostel building has 25 beds in 1-5 person rooms, a large lounge with fireplace and small library, dining room with a view over the lake and a kitchen for self-catering.

Breakfast is available for an extra fee.

We are an ecologically aware hostel and follow HI recommendations to protect our environment.


This is an ideal country for lowland walking.
You might walk an entire day without meeting anyone, only a roe buck or a moose or a hawk. Walking in another direction, you might end up at a lakeside full of picnickers. This area has become increasingly popular among rock climbers.


The nearby village of Rimforsa has food shops, bakery, cafes, post office, pharmacy and tourist office. At some of the nearby farms, you can buy local produce ranging from jellies and jams to smoked venison and moose steak, from fresh eggs to fruit and vegetables.
