Reviews

The service and breakfast were very good, and I really loved being able to use the deck. The hostel location in Balestrand is very convenient to the harbor and it was great that I was able to get a discount on rowboat rentals at the aquarium by showing my key. The beds were very comfortable. The common kitchens were well-equipped otherwise but there was no soap or other cleaner to clean up after myself/wash my hands while using the kitchen. That's really the only suggestion for improvement.

Notre chambre familiale et spacieuse dans l annexe n avait pas de balcon mais une belle vue sur le fjord tout de même Nous avons adoré le petit déjeuner en terrasse au soleil tandis que les enfants qui avaient fini profitaient du babyfoot et du billard au rez de chaussée Emplacement idéal à Balestrand Pas la peine d aller ailleurs;-)) A améliorer peut être la deco un peu vieillissante du bâtiment principal, les moquettes un peu usées mais séjour top malgré ça !!!
