Staying on Terschelling

Verdant forests, expansive moorlands, wide beaches, and cosy villages are the ideal ingredients for a blissful holiday. This is the ideal location for those seeking to uncover the many treasures of Terschelling!

In the hostel

Welcome to the most beautiful spot on Terschelling! It's not just the view which is beautiful, but the hostel itself too. The hostel has been completely renovated and transformed into a hip and colorful place with beach vibes. Book a private, family or shared room with a private shower and toilet. A delicious breakfast is included and in the evening you can enjoy a freshly prepared meal in the restaurant or have a drink in the cozy bar. The staff will be happy to help you on your way to discover the beautiful island.

Did you know that we organise annual trash collecting campaigns that see 5,000kg worth of rubbish picked up off the beaches in a week? We also work together with the Wadden association and local suppliers.
