Å Hostel

Hostel Å

Welcome to our hostel

Welcome to Å Vandrerhjem and 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.

Great place where to stay to either start or finish your trip in the Lofoten. µ The price is pretty cheap considering it's Norway. The receptionist is very helpful and flexible. I highly recommand this place.

Auberge de jeunesse très sympathique, propre et conformatble !! Il manquerait peut-être seulement une pièce commune . Et à savoir : pas de volets aux fenetres donc lumière en été ! (mais assez commun en norvège j'imagine)

Wunderbar gelegenes Hostel, sehr einfach ausgestattete kleine Zimmer ohne Stauraum, Schrank o.ä., saubere Sanitäreinrichtungen mit viel warmem Wasser. Sehr dünne Wände, d.h. Gespräche und Aktivitäten im Nachbarzimmer bleiben nicht verborgen. Sehr freundliche Rezeption, hilfsbereit und ortskundig. Ideal für kürzeren Aufenthalt.

C'était parfait...tellement parfait que j'ai annulé mes autres réservations pour rester plus longtemps dans cette auberge.

Sehr schönes Hostel mit freundlichen Empfang! Er hat uns nach den üblichen CheckIn-Zeiten von der Fähre abgeholt und uns Wandertipps gegeben. Die Zimmer sind typisch norwegisch eingerichtet mit super Ausblick :) empfehle ich gerne weiter!
