Heeg Hostel

Hostel Heeg

Hostelling International

Welcome to our hostel

Set on a former island on the edge of Heegermeer, the largest lake in Friesland, Stayokay Heeg has its own certified sailing school, harbour and boathouse.

With a range of watersports to try out just outside the door, you’ll never be short of things to do in Stayokay Heeg. The hostel also provides a complimentary breakfast buffet. Try out the two on-site restaurants for dinner and visit the bar or main hall for a conversation and a game of pool. When the sun shines, you can relax on the beautiful waterside terrace.

Stayokay Heeg is located in a lovely village surrounded by Frisian lakes. If you fancy a day out, you can pack your own lunch bag and rent an electric boat, a sail boat, canoe or Polyvalk and discover Friesland from the water. From the hostel, rent a ‘tjotter’ – a small, authentic Frisian sail boat – and get a sailing lesson from one of the in-house professionals.

I'm 76 and my brother in law who accompagned me has 74. For us it was not a Youth Hostel but a real Hotel. Every morning a magnificent buffet. A mosquito screen would these unpleasant buzzers keep outside. A hook on the door of the shower and soap holder would make optimal comfort. Congratulations to the staff of Stayokay Heeg. Thanks, Leo Bertels

Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt, die Mitarbeiter waren sehr freundlich. Die Räumlichkeiten sind allerdings sehr hellhörig.
