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.

Sehr schöne, gemütlich eingerichtete Fischerhütte als Hostel. Perfekter Ort, um Abzuschalten und in der Natur zu entspannen. Ich hab mich sehr wohl gefühlt. Außerdem hatte ich den Service von der Fähre in Moskenes abgeholt zu werden. Danke!

Comfortable hostel. Equipped kitchen and shower room. The reception and room were in different building. There's not always people at reception during their operation time and also hard to connect by phone. We keep calling and waiting for about 15-20mins for our check-in. The staff was friendly after all.

No me gustó el trato y en las oficinas nunca hay nadie. El echo de dormitorios separados no me gusta, no podía estar con mi pareja, encima el gerente me llamó la atención por estar un rato con mi pareja estando la habitación vacía. Tenía contratado 6 noches y como el tiempo era muy malo cada día, decidí irme al cuarto día pero no me quisieron devolver las dos noches siguientes. No lo recomiendo.

The hostel is a warm and welcoming place. The place is clean and the beds are confortable. I just have a complaint: it realy snows a lot and it is icy everywhere, especially on the bridge that leads to the rooms and on the street and "parking" of the hostel. I personnaly expected that someone would put some salt to prevent the icing or a least leave a bucket full of it at the customers disposal.
