Welcome to our hostel

Lofoten Hostel Kabelvåg can be found at the heart of the Lofoten Islands, in the Finneset peninsula, an area with dramatic landscapes, beautiful beaches and small fishing communities.

Open during the summer, the accommodation is based in a school and provides all the facilities you would expect including a kitchen, TV room, common room, laundry, Internet access and a dining room, where the free buffet breakfast is served. There’s also a sauna and you can use the hostels harbour area – relax in the beautiful surroundings or maybe have a barbeque!

Hostel Kabelvåg is 800m from the nearest bus-stop and only a few minutes from the popular town of Svolvaer, a small harbour town, and the village of Kabelvåg, one of the oldest fishing villages in Lofoten.

Due to its great location, Lofoten offers many outdoor activities - go hiking around the mountains; do some fishing, kayaking or diving in the crystal clear waters; mountain bike along the coast or go bird or whale watching.

Good place. Very friendly staff. The doors are set up so they do slam every time they close and the whole floor can hear it.

You can get an fantastic view from Kleppstadheia (534m), it,s worth to go up. There is a special atmosphere in the island. The staff of the Hostel was very careful and helpful.

The receptionist was superb, the breakfast was excellent, the cake and coffee in the evening was a lovely touch. Please note that if you want a towel you need to pay extra, not obvious to me on booking

The luggage room was somewhere deep down in the basement, far from any overlooking by the staff. It would be good to have a place more near the reception. Even though the hostel has a safe atmosphere, I felt a bit uneasy about leaving my luggage there... I think luggage storage is something the hostel should take seriously as a service, because nearly everyone travels with large backpacks, that simply can't be taken on a trip on the day of check-in, check-out (or a change of room, like I had).
