You need to make it clearer that this hostel does not take cards! We were the only ones staying here and Benedicts was very understanding when we realised we didn't have enough cash. The nearest cash point is nearly 2 hours drive. He gave us his bank details and i transferred the money as soon as we were able. The village is very small and the shop does not open at the weekends, so you need to be prepared ! Recommended

We had a great time in Korpudalur. Well communicated despite the very nice feeling of isolation, great hosts that gave us a hint when the aurora borealis appeared, and they were caring and helpful too. The hostel has its own older style and it works really nice. Perhaps the kitchen could be slightly bigger to facilitate movement, but it is certainly not an issue. Overall, a great experience. I wish the owners all the best!

We met some car battery issue, and couldn't start the engine then. The owner is so friendly and helpful, asked their friend to come to fix it, and provided warmth all along. They are very kind persons!
