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 arrived in a pick of winter, the room is very very cold, so cold, we have to wait 4hrs before the heater fully cover the entire room. But apart from that we enjoy our stay, room is spacious and clean, Thank you.

Point fort: la localisation, nous avons eu une cabane de pêcheurs pour nous seules. Nous donnions sur la mer et avons vu des aurores boréales incroyables depuis notre balcon. Ppint négatif: Nous avons été piquées par des puces de lit!

One of the best locations. Couldn't have asked for more. Cottages are comfortable with a kitchen.

Very nice cosy hostel. Nice rooms. The hostel is clean, but sometime poeple staying at the hostel don't have a sense of living in community and are real porcs (they leave their shit in the toilett without cleaning it, their hair in the bathroom). Martin at the reception is very nice, friendly and helpful. He cleans also very well. Thank you for taking care of this hostel Martin!

I liked location, views from hostel over museum but limited cooking equipment. Needs direction, a simple map would be useful. Unfortunately I was asked to move on my last night to a different hostel across the village which I was not happy about. The other hostel was very dirty and dark. The Lofotens was to be the highlight of my trip to Norway and this upset me alot, I've saved along time, travelled many days to get there. I got no compensation or apology, this is unacceptable.
