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.

I really liked the friendliness of stuff. It was clean and nice. However, it was a little bit cold.

Centrally located, attractions within walking distance. Having arrived from summer in NZ it feld a bit chilly, though. Leaving very early and missing the breakfast the hostel owner provided a breakfast package. Thank you.

We had booked a four bed room with linen but when we decided to go to bed we found that the bunks had no linen and as it was after 20.00 the office was unattended. My husband checked but there was no reply when he knocked at the door. So that was disappointing. we told the manager the next morning but he didn't seem to care much. Breakfast was excellent and the lady preparing it was very friendly.

I only stayed for one night. Quite place, clean and good location. I stayed in a four share room but there was only another girl and we had our own bathroom, so very happy with that.
