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.

Nos gustó mucho el trato por parte del responsable del centro. Cómo área de mejora, Se podría tener mayor cuidado en la limpieza de la cocina, en la retirada a tiempo de las bolsas de deshechos.

Really cosy rooms with a great view over the ocean. It was really good to have a table and chairs in the room to eat there.
