Welcome to our hostel

Located in the heart of the city centre, Ålesund Hostel is within close vicinity of some of Norway’s most celebrated tourist attractions. Ålesund was rebuilt after the great town fire in 1904, today the city is one of three European cities that feature magnificent Jugendstil architecture.

Breakfast is included in the overnight price and the hostel serve lunch and dinner for groups. Meetings and conferences can be held at the hostel, with capacity for 100 in one room and 40 in the second room.

Be sure to climb up the Sukkertoppen hill for great panoramic views; it is particularly beautiful at sunset! The local museum with reconstructed buildings can be visited easily by bus. Also visit the Aquarium where there is so much to do you could plan a whole day around it.

Very lovely hostel! The big dorm is quite nice, especially if it isn't fully occupied.

Komischer Aufenthalt von Dauergästen in der Gemeinschaftsunterkunft. Die Jugendherberge sollte keine Unterkunft für längere Zeit sein.

Tiene Piano, padre. El desayuno es variado y muy rico. Nos promovieron a un cuarto privado sin costo alguno, no explicaron por qué, pero el cuarto estaba perfecto para 6 personas. La cocina tiene todo lo necesario y esta limpia. Fue el lugar perfecto para quedarnos en Alesund.

The only downside was parking. It wasn't hard to find because we were there when the city wasn't very busy but I'm sure during the summer time it can be quite difficult.
