What travellers think
It would have been much better if the hostel had supplied a way to get coffee or tea in the kitchen, free or to buy.We had to walk into town, in the rain, just to get a cup of coffee in the morning. The other option was to buy large packages at the store in town. Which was not practical for one or two cups.

Take a hike in Aurlandsdalen, or a boat trip into the fjords from the quai. Or a bus trip to neighboring villages. All nice!
