Sogndal Hostel

Hostel Sogndal

Hostelling International

Welcome to our hostel

Sogndal Hostel is located at the centre of the small town Sogndal, in view of the Sognefjord, the longest and deepest fjord in Europe. From the hostel you can do daily trips to the UNESCO World Heritage sites of the Nærøyfjord and Urnes stave church. There are also possibilities for guided glacier hikes on the Nigardsglacier.

Enjoy staying in private rooms, both single and double room with shared bathroom,

In Sogndal you can also buy guided trips by kayak on the fjord, or on one of the nearby glacial lakes. There are many hiking opportunities in and around Sogndal. But if you are interested in the more spectacular hikes, we would recommend a trip to Jotunheimen, a big mountain area northeast of Sogndal which has the highest mountains in Norway.

It is really hard to find points that where not at or above our expectations. We couldn't score yet a "very good" on the breakfast buffet, on the Wifi etc. A few details where you could improve: something is wrong with the timers / automatic switch-off in the showers and toilets. Either out in 30 sec or on for the whole night.

A ver, no es un hotel, es una residencia para chicos durante la temporada de estudios. Y se dedica a ser un Hostel durante el verano. El cuarto de baño compartido estaba muy nuevo y limpio: en ningún momento tuve que esperar (compartido entre tres habitaciones). Si tengo que decir que no entendíamos como entrar en nuestra habitación. Las indicaciones estaban dibujadas en el acceso a un módulo y no bien explicadas (quizás sea porque los noruegos piensan de otra manera ;-)
