Comfortable accommodation on Lugnåsberget with a view over Kinnekulle, only 3 km from the E20. Convenient for those travelling through, and you can experience a robber’s den, a millstone mine, a biosphere region, forests and lakes.

The hostel is on Lugnåsberget, which is the lowest plateau hill in Västergötland, and gives a view over Kinnekulle. A peaceful and natural world is waiting for you here, while some of the residents (cheeky goats and cows) offer some excitement. If it gets too much for you, take a cycle trip through the forest. Or why not walk Stenhuggarstigen, or visit Kvarnstensgruvan?

Large experiences on a small scale await you here. Within 5 km of the hostel you can find deep forest and a modern pizza house, calm forest tarns and the E20 highway. You can learn about the history of the farmer and the intimate natural world. You can travel along winding gravel roads, and be amazed at the ability of humans to create in stone.

The hostel has been fully rebuilt and reopened in July 2011, with newly built rooms in refurbished premises at an old smallholding. All rooms are en suite with their own entrance, and a common veranda.

It is easy to find us from the major roads, just follow the road up the hill towards Lugnås Church. There is ample parking space close to the rooms, as well. A bus stop and train station lie within 3-5 km if you want to travel here using climate-sensitive transport, and we will be happy to fetch you if you don’t want to walk the distance. Once arrived, you will find much to discover here by foot or by cycle.

We are conveniently located for many of the tourist attractions of Västergötland such as Vänern, the Göta canal, Kinnekulle, Läckö, Hornborgasjön and Skara Sommarland. It is also easy to reach these by bus and train, and there are many alternative destinations that offer extra experiences. We will be happy to help you sort out the right bus and train connections.

  • Det var ett mycket bra vandrarhem i litet format, nyrenoverat med alla faciliteter. Mycket trevligt värdpar. Vi uppskattade också frukostkorgen med ekologiska varor som vi hade beställt. Kommer gärna dit igen.

  • En grön oas

    Bara 3 km från E20 upplever vi här lugnet i denna sköna gröna oas med kor och får betande intill vandrarhemmet. Vi mötte också ett vandrarhemspar som skapar en trevlig atmosfär för sina gäster. Hit återkommer vi gärna.

  • Idyllisk og komfortabelt

    Stedet er meget idyllisk og ligger bekvemt i forhold til vejen mellem Goteborg og Stockholm, lidt sydvest for Mariestad. Det er nyrenoveret. Værelserne er små, men hyggeligt indrettet og med eget, moderne toilet/dusch. (Der var dog for lidt tryk på vandet i duschen, så det gjorde det lidt svært at tage et hurtigt bad og vaske hår.) Et lille spejl i nærheden af et el-udtag ville være en stor fordel med hensyn til at ordne hår eller barbering. Køkkenerne var rigtig fine med hyggelige spisepladser - også på den store terrasse udenfor det største køkken. Der var alt det, man skulle bruge i køkkenet, og det var rent og pænt. Nye hvidevarer. Ca 10 min i bil til masser af indkøbsmuligheder. Pizzaria og kiosk et par km derfra.

  • Ekologiska produkter och miljötänk har framtiden för sig. Rummet var bra. Toarummet borde kompletteras med ett duschdraperi och toaborste.

  • Grönt, skönt och personligt !

    Härligt läge och en beundransvärt konsekvent genomförd "grön", miljövänlig prägel! Extra plus för personligt och engagerande bemötande och hjälpsamhet. Härligt med hembakt bröd, sylter och safter mm - allt från egen småskalig produktion eller lokala producenter. Kan varmt rekommenderas !!!

  • Lugnås

    Överraskad av detta bekväma vandrarhem mitt ute på landet. Kvällen avslutades med en kvällspromenad i Lugnås kvarnstensberg och en alldeles sagolik utsikt från kyrkbacken med solnedgång över Vänern och ljumma sommarvindar med doft av nyslaget gräs och örter.
