The hostel dates back to the 1850s and is located on Gräsheden – The Grass Heath. The first person to settle here worked as a gränsridare (border rider) and oversaw the border with neighbouring Norway.
The hostel offers practical and pleasant accommodation in double or multiple-bed rooms. There are washbasins and toilets in most rooms. Showers and a sauna are also available as well as a self-catering kitchen.
