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.

We booked the garden room but it turn out to be replacement room at the other building and eventually better view of scenic Å. Although it's an old building, we feel the local living and comfortable. Some of the hostel mates were loud at night you can hear them talk and walk in addition to the wooden building cracking sound though. Overall we had awesome stay and that view of aurora out from our window has been unforgettable!

L'atmosfera è piacevole, da migliorare lo spazio cucina.

Very atmospherically situated on the harbour front. Within reasonable walking distance (4.5km) of the Moskennes ferry terminal and with a daily bus service to Leknes for onward connections to Stamsund, Narvick,,Balstad and elsewhere. Good self catering kitchen for meals. It would be nice to see all hostels having a stamp - in many countries they still do and they are a cheap way of underpinning brand loyalty, especially for those of a certain age.

Die Küche ist sehr klein und hat eine ziemlich alte und dürftige Ausstattung. Ansonsten hat es uns gefallen.
