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.

+ : Accueil avec le sourire. Chambres spacieuses. Organisation par sas de 4 chambres. Draps inclus. Propreté. Calme et verdure. Tout est calculé pour l'accueil et le bien-être des voyageurs. Grande cuisine. Petit déjeuner varié avec du sucré et du salé Bref, rien à redire ! On conseille vivement !

The counter staff of the yha hostel no ask me show the yha card when I check in . After I pay by credit card I find I pay the non-membership money. So I show the yha membership card after I pay 3 seconds, and ask refund 10% discount. But the counter staff say no way. I write email to the hostel but it is strange there is no answer. I really don't know why
