Like to get away from it all and spend the night in a cheerful and colorful ‘room on wheels’ in the Drenthe countryside? Or perhaps very basic and back to nature in a surprisingly large tent with ‘real’ beds? Then come to the Budget B & B of Hippago just outside Elim, a place where you can quickly get rid of everything that goes on and on. Elim is located in the Hoogeveen, Coevorden and Slagharen triangle.

Open in the green season
Our Budget B & B is open from approximately April 15 to October 15. We may open a little earlier or close a little later because the night temperature is pleasant enough to sleep without heating. We have nice warm duvets and there is also a bedspread. It is easy to do at temperatures above 5 degrees.The Budget B & B is really what it says: sleeping and having breakfast at a competitive price in a wonderful environment. Our rooms on wheels are only places to sleep.You can find the toilet and shower in our activity building (50 meters away). Our activity building is open day and night and there is free WIFI. The sanitary facilities are excellent of course!

Check-in is possible between 5:00 and 10:30 pm. From 11:00 pm we are closed for incoming traffic. Check-out is before 10:30 am.

Breakfast in the budget cafe
You can have your breakfast between 8:30 and 9:30 am (exceptions on demand) in the black and white garden shed: the budget cafe. In the evening you can sit here doing board games or playing cards. In the budget cafe you can make a cup of tea or coffee and borrow plates and cutlery. You will find a kettle, instant coffee, tea bags, sugar and coffee milk. There are no facilities to prepare complete meals.
