Balestrand Hostel is a seasonal hostel, located in the centre of Balestrand with good views over the Sognefjord. All bedrooms have newly renovated bathrooms and most have a balcony. Communal areas include a spacious breakfast room, living room and an extended guest kitchen.

Excellent opportunities to hike on well-defined trails and sheltered waters prime for perfect fishing and boating activities. The hostel has recently built an activity centre by the fjord where aquariums, models and a slide-show illustrate life in the Sognefjord. The hostel is a good base for excursions to the glacier and other attractions in the area such as art galleries and historical sites.

Visit Norway and stay in Balestrand for sublime views, geographic wonder and for the perfect outdoors getaway holiday.

Beware: the bed sheets are NOT included in the price! We were charged 50NOK per person for sleeping there one night - and had to wait 2 emails and 2 weeks for an explanation. Kitchenette very dirty. Breakfast is OK.
