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.

Alles bestens, wir haben uns sehr wohlgefühlt. Die Lage ist hervorragend, leider waren der Nachttisch und die Gardinen nicht sauber , dafür war das Frühstück umso besser. Wir werden die Herberge weiter empfehlen, an Leute die nicht so pingelig sind.

Nice place for relaxation. Very good variety for breakfast. Squeacy floor in one corner of the room. Pittorescue scenery (the addition to the Balestrand hotel ruins it though). Visit the gallery with the glass bubble on the roof - the lady of the house (the artist herselft) is really nice and helpfull and does some lovely water colorings.

Very pleasant stay in Balastrand with our family of 4. Breakfast and self cooked dinner on teresse overlooking the fjord. Had to search for a bathning beach but came across the little grass lane ffom the campsite, so we used their private bathing bridge which I'm sure we are forgiven!!

Had a really nice time. The locTion is great. Lots of common areas and communal spaces. Two kitchens, a great game room downstairs and my room even had a balcony! Excellent place to stay!!

The Kringsja Hostell is located up on the hill, the facility had no elevator and may require significant effort for those with lot or big of luggages. The suites we reserved are basic and functional with view of the fjords. The beds are fairly comfortable and clean. Breakfast is served daily in the 1st floor, there are tables set out in the balcony with great view of the fjords but they are always too wet to use. There are an assortment of game tables in the games room downstairs.
