My room had a very musty odor and something in there irritated my allergies. The mattress was very thin, lumpy, and uncomfortable. The kitchen cookware was in poor condition and one saucepan had baked on food all over the interior of it but it was in the cupboard. There was no common room to meet the few other guests. Compared to the HI hostels in Bergen and Flam, the hostel in Hellesylt was a real disappointment. There was no common room to meet the few other guests. So empty it was scary.

Necesita renovarse, todo muy viejo. Necesita más limpieza, habia mucho polvo en la habitacion y en los baños mal olor. Necesita mejor desayuno y bajar el precio. Es muy caro para lo q ofrece.

Breakfast was good. View of the room was fabulous. Be prepared to walk a really steep slope before getting to the hostel.
