STF/HI Youth hostel Omberg / Stocklycke: Beautiful view over Lake Vättern

The Youth hostel (STF) Omberg / Stocklycke is located south of Omberg at Borghamn. This is a tiny village located on the shore of Lake Vättern. Although it might seem a bit out of the way, it is a great location when visiting the east shores of Lake Vättern. Places like Omberg, Vadstena Alvastra Kloster are all close by. And even travelling a bit more south to the neighbouring county of Jönköpings Län and the southern part of Lake Vättern isn't a problem. The extra bonus of the hostel that the price is good too! The hostel system in Sweden is really good and you get good quality for a relatively cheap price. (accommodation in Sweden is generally very expensive).

In the photos you can get a bit of an impression of the hostel and its surrounding area. The double room we booked was perfect, quite a lot of space and clean. Ít still is a hostel, so don't expect a tv in your room, but with the views over Lake Vättern, who needs a tv?? Another advantage of a hostel is that you can make your own breakfast, lunch and dinner if you like. The kitchen is a shared kitchen, but it never felt crowded in there. It is rather spacious and it had all we wished for and even a large dining room.
