Preikestolen Youth and Family Hostel is a cosy cabin-style mountain retreat located in picturesque surroundings in Ryfylke with an altitude of 250m. This is an excellent starting point for walks to the famous Pulpit Rock as well as other hikes and fishing.

The Preikestolen hostel offers different kinds of accommodation and all prices include breakfast! Good self-catering facilities, common room and a café on site. Preikestolen is a seasonal hostel, which means it is not open all year and has seasonal opening times. Please keep this is mind when checking availability.

Preikestolen is a mountain formed like a huge pulpit towering over the Lysefjord in Rogaland, Fjord Norway. There is a well prepared track from Preikestolen Mountain Lodge to the top of the 604m high mountain plateau. Expect to spend four-five hours hiking from the lodge to the top and back down, and allow time to spend on the plateau.

Check-in staff not familiar with membership rebate and rather disorganized. Room very small with extremely narrow space between wall and beds. Only shower room on 1st floor which was fully book. Very good breakfast. Poor quality compared with f.inst. the hotel standard at the hostel in Horten at about the same price.

El entorno y las vistas son espectaculares, la naturaleza que te rodea da una sensación de paz y relax que no necesitas mucho más para sentirte bien. Me gustaría valorar especialmente la comida que ofrece el hostel, puesto que después de haber subido al púlpito se necesita un buen aporte de energía para recuperar fuerzas y el menú era de gran calidad y con cantidades muy generosas. Recordar a los viajeros que se necesita llevar toallas y productos de baño puesto que es un albergue.
