Read more about this hostel

In the area

Gorssel is located in the middle of nature between the historic Hanseatic cities of Deventer and Zutphen. These two cities are certainly worth a visit. And after a day in the city, enjoy the peace and quiet in Gorssel.

In the hostel

In the middle of nowhere looms a beautifully renovated Norwegian hunting lodge, you have arrived at Stayokay Gorssel. You will find an atmospheric restaurant, a cosy sitting area by the fireplace, a nice living room with games and a lovely terrace in the large garden. All in line with the characteristic Norse style. You spend the night in the family or private rooms (always with private bathroom) or in the Wikkelhouses on the grounds of the hunting lodge.

In our hostel, we stimulate the sale of local, fair, organic products. Don't forget to try out our menu!

Reviews

Reviews are important. For you and for us. It helps you to make the right choice and helps us to learn. That is why we post reviews on external (booking) sites on our own website.

Want to know more? Click here.

Guests receive an email after their stay to leave a review. The scores are calculated by means of an analysis of the written review and are based on the past 12 months. Written reviews are summarised because we cannot show them in full due to copyright issues. But positive or negative, we post them all. We do not pay for reviews and fake reviews are reported.

Public transport

From station Deventer or Zutphen

From Zutphen take bus 81 towards Deventer and transfer in Epse to bus 56 towards Borculo.

From Deventer take bus 56 towards Borculo.

Get off at the De Drie Kieften stop, a 2-km walk from the hostel.

 

Please note: from December 2021, Bus 56 will no longer be riding. The route description will then be as follows:

From Zutphen you take bus 81 towards Deventer. Get off at the De Pessink stop. From there it is a 5 km walk.

You can also take a regional taxi from both stations. Order the taxi at least one hour advance on 0900 0276.

From Zutphen, take the N48 in the direction of Deventer. In Eefde take a right, towards Bathmen. Follow the signs to the hostel.

Parking

We have our own private unattended car park (free parking). This is located next to the hostel. You can charge your electric car at a charging station here.

Local hot spots

Art aficionados are also well catered to here. Visit MORE, the modern realism museum. Or do you feel like going somewhere with the kids? Go wandering through the Toy museum. Outdoor life is spectacular here as well! If you're the active type, try go-karting or climbing in the Climbing forest and for those that come here for the sake of tranquillity: the fluisterboot in Zutphen comes highly recommended!
