Hostel | A unique accommodation in the old lighthouse, an atmosphere filled with peace and tranquility, high above the clashing waves of the Gulf of Bothnia. You cannot find an accommodation that is as close to nature and has beautiful and exciting surroundings.

The youth hostel has 28 beds in total. 22 of them are in the lighthouse keepers house and 6 of them are in the garden house, where you can even bring your household pets.
There is a kitchen for own use and shower rooms available in the lighthouse keepers house. There is also a Bio-toilet (MullToa) in the garden with a fantastic view over the sea.

Conference room and sauna is available on request.
If you prefer to prepare your own food, you need to do your shopping on the main land. There are no shops on Högbonden. However; there is a garden café that is open daily during the high season.

There is a place available for those who would like to have a barbecue. In that case make sure to bring charcoal and lighter fluid with you.

Keep in mind that Högbonden is an high and steep little island. It would be wise to pack a backpack!

You can travel to Högbonden by taking the boat from Barsta and Bönhamn. There are several round-trips to and from the island during the high season. It is operated by M/S Ronja, which is owned by Högakusten Båtarna AB. Reservations can be made online at www.hkship.se or you can ring (+46) 0613-105 50.

”Vi tillbringade vandrarhemmets sista öppna dag med strålande solsken. En fantastisk middag och frukost blev vi serverade. Värdparet berättade om Högbondens historia vilken är spännande.Tycker att priser på middag & frukost utanvidare bör höjas med minst 50:- Det blev en överaskning för mig att det går att lägga konf...”

”Jättefint dygn hos er! Bemötande och allmän upplevelse får full pott. Där jag upplever förbättringspotential är middagsmaten egentligen. Små portioner och lite fantasilöst. För lite grönsaker till fisk och potatis. Smakerna var det absolut inget fel på. Det vegetariska alternativet (rödbeta som grund) var mer som en...”
