Nice and simple at the hostel
In hostels you live simply but comfortably. You can choose everything from single to dormitory rooms, with or without shower / toilet. The guest kitchen is a gathering point where you can cook your own food, make a cup of coffee and spend some time with the other guests.
At several of our hostels you can combine your overnight stay with a canoe trip or hiking. At other hostels, the cultural experiences are close at hand with museums and cultural heritage buildings.
