Comfortable and convenient accommodation all year around
STF Trollhättan Gula Villan Hostel is situated in a quiet area which is only a few steps away from the travel centre called Resecentrum. The villa was built at the beginning of the last century and has been a hostel since 1996. It is open all year round, has between 1 and 5 beds in 12 charming rooms, access to Wi-Fi, a shared kitchen and can provide a breakfast tray to order. Breakfast is free for children under 10 and a baby cot can be arranged if required.
Locks, waterfalls and movie stars
Trollhättan is known for its locks and waterfalls. The canal flows through the centre of the town and at certain times you can hear the crashing waters of the very impressive Trollhättan waterfalls very close by. The film industry in Trollhättan has given the town its nickname of "Trollywood", which has produced world famous films, movie stars and the ever-popular Walk of Fame.
The Gula Villan has a number of holiday packages that include accommodation, breakfast/packed lunch and tips on attractions and footpaths. Read more and book here:
Activities in Trollhättan
If you enjoy the countryside, put on your walking shoes and head off to Edsvidsleden, a beautiful 14-kilometre footpath with newly constructed bridges and steps that take you through breath-taking as well as calm places. The footpath goes through varied landscapes that include dense forests and meadows. Alternatively, you can walk along the Trollhätte Canal and the river Göta älv where you can enjoy several very scenic paths. If you would like to cool off with a dip, the nearest lake with a swimming area is only ten kilometres away, and a 5-minute walk from the hostel will take you to a fitness and swimming facility with an outdoor pool that is open during the summer.
For guest with children, the hostel provides a special playground package for the town's new themed playgrounds.
If you are coming to Gula Villan by car, Gothenburg is less than one hour south of Trollhättan and if you are travelling by train it takes about 35 minutes to Resecentrum, a local stop that is a 2-minute walk from the hostel. Lidköping is about the same distance but in another direction. It is free to park your car in our courtyard.
