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.

Very lovely hostel in small fishing village. Room is very large, but it is a bit cold. I could not find other economic accommodation in Moskenesoya, here is only one accommodation for solo traveller.

Better bring blindfolds and earplugs. Those seagulls will not shut up. And the curtains will not block any light from the midnight sun. The dorms are located on top of the museum, so people will march into the dorm and into the rooms, so better keep the doors locked at all time. It'll be comfortable enough if you wont spend any time beyond sleeping in the rooms anyway.

Central location in A in Lofoten, near bus station. Friendly staff. Triple-room in a seperate house with about 6 rooms. public bathroom (you need tokens from reception) and kitchen (microwave, refrigerator, dishes, etc.) on base floor. Room has low ceiling, bad for us tall people (1.95 m). Small window. Wooden beds very old, fraggle. There is an electric heater in the room. We moved two single beds together, floor under beds was uncleaned for a long time.
