Welcome to our hostel

Welcome to Å Hosteland the small fishing hamlet within Lofoten. At the Å hostel there are ten 100-year-old cabins which have been carefully restored to high standards in the traditional ‘rorbu’ style. It has a charming atmosphere and excellent setting overlooking the sea.

The hostel is located in a museum area with old buildings and a small grocery store, and is housed in two buildings - Hennumgården house and the top floor of Lofoten Stockfish Museum. Some rooms face the sea and have a fantastic ocean view, and facilities include a large kitchen, dining room, TV area and a terrace. The garden, ’Hennum Garden’ is worth a visit, which is part of a project called ‘Ancient gardens in Lofoten’.

From the small village of Å are various hiking routes which means you can take in the breath-taking views of the Lofoten area.

We had a really nice stay at HI. The hostel is cozy, very neat and clean and situated in a beautiful location with nice view over the sea and fishers’ houses. The instalations are modern and the bathroom and shower were really good. Only thing we didn’t like was that we didn’t receive much help and information on what to do in the area. Since reception was not open full time, the person who checked us in told us to call him the next day. We did but he said he couldn’t help us at that moment.

Je regrette le manque de compréhension du gérant. J'avais réservé 5 nuitées du 10 au 15 avril. Suite à des grèves à la Lufthansa, nous sommes arrivés le 11 avril. Pour des raisons similaires de retour, j'explique que nous devrons partir le 14. Le gérant refuse de me décompter ces 2 nuitées. Bref, 3 nuitées passées sur place et 5 nuitées payées. En tant qu'organisateur de séjours en montagne, je retournerai à A, mais il est certain que je n’emmènerai pas de groupes à cette auberge.

Das Hostel ist echt super gemütlich und hat eine tolle Lage. Lediglich die Küchenausstattung könnte etwas besser sein

Fairly basic but nice hostel in a fantastic location, right by the water. On my first night I had a dorm to myself as there was only one other guest in the hostel and we had a nice night watching the Northern Lights from the front of the hostel. The only problem is that no-one is on duty in the hostel itself. The reception is in another building 5 minutes away and the guy on duty closes it at 8 or 9pm. Still, he's a nice guy and gave me a lift to the only supermarket in the area, about 2km away.
