Close to the sea

STF Steninge Hostel

The perfect spot for active people, with a view of the sea and a nature reserve around the corner. Welcome to Steninge Hostel for a pleasant stay.

In between Halmstad and Falkenberg, in a charming seaside house with a view of the Kattegatt, you'll find Steninge Hostel. From the hostel's garden, it's just a 200 meter walk to the sea where you can bathe from the sandy beach or from the cliffs.

The hostel has generous space for socializing and relaxing. Both the dining room and the living room are decorated with light colours and a local cultural theme shown with both paint and textiles; all with the crashing waves as the background noise to your journey and an unbroken view of the horizon.

All of the hostels charming rooms have their individual histories. We also have a well stocked guest kitchen where you can cook your own food. Our knowledge of the area and sentiment for comfort and tradition can be felt through the atmosphere of the whole house.

Pre-booking is recommended since there is a high demand for accommodation during the summer. You can book with us online through the Swedish Tourist Association (STF).

Hiking Along the Kattegatt

We recommend a two-day long coastal hiking experience where you will do roughly 15km day-hikes and the two days is enough time to hike between Halmstad and Falkenberg. If you would like a more relaxed hike we can of course cater to your wishes.

Accommodations are just a stone's throw away from the sea and a nature reserve. The price for the two-day coastal hike starts at 1030 SEK /person if you're an STF-member. This includes a double room, two breakfast buffets and two lunch boxes. Guiding and dinner can be booked seperately.
