The hostel at Vilhelmina is made up of converted cottages that used to make up the 'church town' or Krykstad. These were built in the 19th century to accommodate people from outlying villages when they came to town for church festivals, weddings, funerals etc
There are two or three rows of these houses on a hill just outside town centre. Our house was split up into four apartments, two downstairs, two upstairs. We had a downstairs apartment for one night - living room with cooker, fridge,sink, bedroom with two twin beds, bathroom with shower. Very clean but basic.
Reception for the hostel is in the tourist office just down the hill. We booked with booking.com (not direct with STF the hostel organisation as we did for other locations on this trip) and they gave address of reception but not that it was in the tourist office. It would have helped if it had done so.
Our only complaint was that there is no sound insulation between downstairs and upstairs. The people upstairs came in very late (about 00:30) and made a terrific noise, scraping furniture, stomping around, television on etc etc. This seriously distrubed our sleep.
