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.

Sehr schönes Hostel mit freundlichen Empfang! Er hat uns nach den üblichen CheckIn-Zeiten von der Fähre abgeholt und uns Wandertipps gegeben. Die Zimmer sind typisch norwegisch eingerichtet mit super Ausblick :) empfehle ich gerne weiter!

Nice location close to Reine, but there was not a single wardrobe on room, and mattresses were extremely uncomfortable, my back hurt a lot. Good thing was wifi on room.

Daran kann wahrscheinlich nichts geändert werden, aber es ist schade, dass das Hostel keinen Gemeinschaftsraum hat.

There was to less kitchen stuff - so cooking was a bit difficult(especially when there are other guest cooking too). But the staff was really nice and the location is beautiful. I had first some problems with the booking webpage - needed to load the page again to get it work.

I arrived around 12:30, but there was no reception, but a phone number for me to call. However as a tourist I had no Norway phone number. I took much trouble looking for help to make the phone call, and finally got in touch with the receptionist. This is not convenient for tourists.
