Die uns angebotene Hütte war von uns nicht akzeptiert worden (Lärm, Sauberkeit u.a..)Das als "Ersatz" angebotene Appartment (Kapazität ca. 7 Schlafplätze) war für den Preis von 850,- NOK (ohne Frühstück, Betwäsche "geschenkt") gut An der Rezeption war nicht bekannt, dass man schon beim ersten Checkin Hihostel-Mitglied werden kann und 10% Rabatt gewährt bekommt. Dies ginge nur über das Internet .wieder reservieren; Die Bewertung bezieht sich auf die Abwicklung der ersten Hütte.

etter avtale pr telefon skulle nøkkel og sengetøy legges i en pose utenfor døra, hvilket ikke ble gjort siden jeg ankom kl 01 på natta. tilfelidigvis fant jeg nøkkelen til ei ledig hytte der jeg la meg til i sovepose.
