The youth hostel in Balestrand is a very charming place with a beautiful view over the Fjord! Perfect starting point for hikes, walks through the village and fjordsightseeing:) Restaurants, touristinformation and harbour are super close!

Complete well balanced service package. Simply good, without major remarks. If you would like to improve something : - it was very rainy so (as outdoor lovers / walkers) we had stuff to dry. The drying room didn't function as it should - lots of lights burning for no reason / no possibility for separate disposal of paper / - please some herbal tea (and not only black tea or aromatized black tea)

Peut être revoir un peu le mobilier de la chambre qui est un peu vieillot et enlever le tapis mais sinon rien à dire :)

J'ai aimé les parties communes très bien équipées, très agréables. La vue sur Balestrand et le fjord. La propreté des chambres. Les lits sont trop étroits.

Great stay at Balestrand hostel. But it proved difficult to amend my booking through international booking website and I was told I had to contact Balestrand directly to amend booking. However they were unable to refund part of my deposit which I had to do through international site, and which I haven't done due to it all being too complicated. therefore I suggest this process needs looking o.
