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.

Unfortunately someone entered while we were having dinner and stole 2 pair of new hiking shoes left in the hallway because completely wet. Pretty annoying but in general a very nice place where to stay and amazing breakfast too.

Very friendly staff, helpful too: they kindly made me sandwiches on my last morning, because I was leaving before breakfast. Lovely! Hopefully I'll come again.
