This hostel is a seasonal hostel, which means it is not open all year and has seaonal opening times. Please keep this is mind when checking avaliability. Welcome to Hostel Røvær based in the Fjords region of Norway. This cosy red sea housel is located at the port, right next to the local store and the boat stop. Hostel Røvær is a wonderful premises filled with history and character, the perfect destination for travellers looking to experience the Norwegian landscape through activities such as hiking, boating and fishing.
The island community of Røvær consists of the islands Urd, Hillerøy, and Røvær. Traditionally the 100 inhabitants made their living through agriculture, navigation and fishing, but trade, transport and tourism are now employing more people as well., In july there is a small cafè in the house, it's open from 12 -18 every day during this month. Here you will find traditional dumplings served on tuesdays, thursdays and sundays. We also have "the catch of the day" on the menu those days we catch fish in our nets. Guest may join us in the boat in the mornings to get the nets, for free. Canoes, kayak boats and fishing gear are available for hire.
What travellers think...
I loved it here! Such a peaceful place to take a break and easy enough to get to the mainland. Picturesque and relaxing, and the hostel is cosy and comfortable with lots of character. It's more like a big home, so you'll definitely be sharing the dinner table with others - but everyone was friendly and chilled out. Warning: wi-fi is intermittent at best, but you do get reception when the ferry docks. Also, stay on top of what you've paid and any discounts you're entitled to as staff seemed a little relaxed about these things (I didn't say anything since I liked the place so much, I considered it a donation).

Ich kannte das Hostel bereits und habe dort vor 20 Jahren die Sommersaison über gearbeitet. Mein Kommentar ist daher nicht ganz neutral.
