Å Hostel

Hostel Å

Hostelling International

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.

Bonne auberge de jeunesse dans un rorbuer très typique. Très belle vue des fenêtres des chambres. Confortable et propre et situé à 100m de l'arrêt de bus. Très bon rapport qualité prix ! Idéal pour un séjour court ou long à Å. Seule marge d'amélioration à faire sur le l'empreinte écologique (établir tri des déchets, cendrier en extérieur...)

Really Nice Hostel with Amazing view in Amazing Place!!! The Room are really nice not like a conventional Hostel. Also in the shered dormitory there is couch, a littele table where you can relax. The only missing thing is the common room. The sheets are included in the price while the towels are not included.

Arrived in the afternoon to check in. The door was locked but there was a note with two numbers. Called both numbers, a lady picked up for one and said someone would be coming soon. Called again when one arrived but there was no answer. We waited in the cafe across the street as it was snowing! Eventually the receptionist arrived over two hours later. When I mentioned that we had waited two hours, the receptionist didn't apologize and simply said he didn't have any missed calls. Dorms were okay.

The reception is far from the hostel, and the hostel itself is not very good signaled, so it was tricky to make the check in. The wi-fi connection was bad. Anyway the room was cozy and bathroom and shower were better than average hostels. La reception è lontana dall'ostello, e lo stesso ostello non è indicato molto bene, per cui il check in è risultato un po' complicato. La connessione wi-fi era scarsa. A parte questo, la camera era molto confortevole e i servizi migliori di molti altri ostelli.
