This hostel is one of the best I have stayed in Norway. Is very clean and tidy, with a large and cosy common area with fire place, a piano and comfortable seats for guest to have their meal, relax and interact with each others in a harmony atmosphere. The hostel is located in a very quiet area, surrounded with greenery. I would highly recommended this hostel to the others.

This is a lovely place to stay, very homely especially with the woodstove going in the evening. Room's are comfortable and the kitchen works well. There is a lovely circular walk down to the little harbour where I could swim and along the coast to a bay then back up to skoghus. Everyone seems friendly and I felt relaxed there. It is convenient for Finnsnes and there is a supermarket in Silsand nearby. Great spot, I would to go back, annie

This is my 7th time here & the hostel I love most. Kjell &Torunn are friendly and always willing to help. There is a beautiful wood built living room with large windows providing spectacular views over the fjord & sunsets. There is much to explore, hiking, swimming on idylllic sandy beaches & coves along Senja’s beautiful fjords. There are two little coves by the hostel. A car makes exploring outer Senja easier but there is bus transport & bus stop nearby. Thanks so much Kjell & Torunn!
