Welcome to our hostel

Borlaug´s most famous attraction is Borgund Stave Church (1150), one of the best preserved stave churches in Norway. There are also excellent opportunities for walking and hiking in the area, e.g. on the old road Vindhellaveien (opened in 1793), many parts of which have a beautiful view. There are two nearby ski resorts; Filefjell 25 km and Hemsedal 45 km from the hostel. A permit for fishing trout can be bought from the hostel.

I wish it had specified somewhere (unless I missed it) that the private room would have four bunkbeds. Wasn't expecting that. Also, we couldn't read the allergen information on the breakfast so ended up not eating any of it. Other than that, it was a nice stay.

Basic, clean hostel. Excellent service. The hosts sit together with their guests at the breakfast table, so if you want to talk, you can do so. They know everything about local attractions, what to do and see.

The hostel is very well maintain. Very clean and very comfortable to live it. Highly recommended for those who has a long drive on the road and need a place to stop and rest.

Not very modern or cosy The sink makes annoying noises when an other room uses water
