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.

It was fantastic. I stayed 3 nights in A, the owner was one of the most kind woman I've ever met, and the girl from the front desk was also really really kind and prestative. If you are thinking about going to Lofoten Islands, you should stay here

Hilfsbereites, aufgeschlossenes, freundliches Personal; gemütliche, offene Häuser; grandiose, romantische Lage; gute Verkehrsanbindung an die Fähre nach Bodö; viel besseres Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis als anderswo auf den Lofoten. Ich habe spannende Menschen aus der ganzen Welt kennengelernt und hatte eine grandiose Zeit! I met people from around the world and experienced a wonderfull time!

Terrible. Reception is always closed. When you call him he sometimes come in 1 hour sometimes never comes. A guy waited 5 hours in rain and he couldn't get the keys. Later he wrote that the receptionist never came that day and the next so stayed in car. There are insects and dead spiders at the house. There is no wi-fi coverage in the house so you need to go out and walk near the reception.
