Stora Frögården, STF Hostel
Hostel / Rooms | At the Stora Frögården youth hostel, you will stay at a fantastic seaside estate with its own beach AND right in the middle of a UNESCO world heritage site, Södra Öland’s agricultural region. From here, you are not far from Stora Alvaret, a pure nature experience with its fantastic flora and fauna. We will be opening a restaurant in the summer of 2010 which will serve classic Swedish dishes and be fully licensed.
As early as the second year of its operation as a youth hostel, Stora Frögården was awarded the "Årets Kudde 2004" award and we were nominated again for the 2009 award. STF awards the youth hostels most appreciated by our guests during the year. There are six categories of distinction of which “Årets Kudde” is the most prestigious. This is fantastic news!
And sure, a lot has happened since the building was a children’s home for “healthy children from tuberculosis-stricken homes”. The youth hostel kitchen is still contained within the children’s home’s old kitchen, however today it is of course equipped with modern amenities. Every room has its own lavatory and most of them also have their own showers.
If you are interested in birds, you will find the proximity to the Beijershamn bird sanctuary area most convenient. If windsurfing is your passion, you will be delighted as you are certain to catch a good wind. The coastal stretch is classed as one of the windiest locations in the country. At Stora Frögården, you will savour a clear red sunset over Kalmar sound, take an evening walk along the beach or perhaps cool off with an evening swim.
The following room arrangements are available: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6-bed rooms, each with its own private lavatory and nearly all with their own showers. Our 5 and 6-bed rooms even feature their own kitchenettes and the 6-bed rooms have their own patios facing the sea.
Check-in times are between 5 pm and 7 pm and check out is 10 am at the latest.
Anne & Peter welcome you and look forward to seeing you.
