Green rating



The location is super, only a short walk (5 Min) up the hill from the bus station or ferry terminal in Hellesylt. Breakfast was extensive and fresh. Only the dorm rooms could need personal lockers and bedside lamps. But my dorm even had a balcony with view over the fjord :)

very poor location, but the view from the room is so beautiful, because it is located very high.
