Salvation Army Hostel
Welcome to an oasis in the center of Visby´s inner city, just above Almedalen and Visby’s Seashore. You’ll find us in a golden yellow medieval house with an alley inside that was recreated during the renovation in 1998.
You find most of what you need in the near area.
We are centrally located to almost everything. The ferry terminal is within walking distance and it is only 4 km to the airport. With only 200 m to the bus station you can easily get around the island.
There is a wealth of excellent restaurants in the neighborhood, which are of a high standard.
The icing on the cake are the sea walks, which are balm for the soul. There are several beaches to choose from along the seafront promenade. If you love a dip in the morning, pack the bathrobe and start your day with a swim!
Our pleasant hostel has a 100% smoke & alcohol- and drug free enviroment, with consideration for children and recovering alcoholics. Violation may entail eviction.
