Our filosofy

Our core values are good service and personal attention.

The basics have to be right: our rooms are fresh and clean. Our restaurant makes simple but delicious dishes. We are a small family business. Therefore we can be flexible and we will always try our best to make your wishes come true if and when we can.


The schools history

The hostel lies in the former school of the village Gafsele. It was built in the fifties and we decorated it in a retro style. The school was founded as a missionary school for Sami children. The old gymnasticshall is still there in all it's glory just as a lot of other fine school stuff: books, charts, ... The fifties building is old but it has got modern facilities.


We offer...

We offer 22 beds in 10 rooms. We are not a classic hostel: we do not have dorms. In our rooms only 2 or 3 persons can sleep. We do not rent out per bed, but per room. But we still have bunkbeds and guests have to share the showers and toilets. The comfortable sittingroom and the big sauna with its two big wellnessrooms invite you to relax. The nature around the hostel will do the rest. Here you can forget your daily trouble. The hostels restaurant offers a continental breakfast with a Swedish touch, dinner, cold and hot drinks.


So much to do in summer and winter

Around the corner we have a sawmill, a grillhouse in the forest, a bakinghouse and tranquil places where you can sit and stare at the forever moving river. Dreaming of...

Why not walk old paths like the one on Vispsjöberget? Explore nature, find an old hut or a lookouttower on top, with the best view over the Ångermanälven (Fishermensriver) and Gafsele. Or hire a boat and fish all day. Or visit Offerhällan, according to tradition an old Sami sacrificial place with a 120 meters high cliff.

We can help you with the planning of your outdooractivities. Maybe a tour with sleddogs, conquering Solbergs skiing slopes, or attack Gafseles own cross country skiing track close to the town hall?


Events, parties, meetings, christmas...

Are you here with a group, with fishingfriends, huntingparty, traininggroup, or yout spending christmas holidays in Sweden or anything like it: we have lots of places in the building where we can accommodate you. From half of november untill christmas we have the Swedish Christmastables. Read more on our restaurant-pub page.



You can make your stay better with our services: hire towels, sheets, order cleaning, order breakfast or dinner. Or maybe you just need a shoppingbag with food and drink. When you book in advance we can always provide.
