Welcome to our hostel

Voss Hostel is located in the Western part of Norway surrounded by beautiful nature and perfect for those guests wanting to get out and explore. Voss Hostel is ideally situated by lake Vangsvatnet, only 800m from the train and bus station.

Breakfast is made from ecological products from Finnegarden farm, and the summer café offers evening meals during high season. Guests can rent bikes at the hostel, swim in the lake and use the sauna.

Voss is the perfect spot for everyone who’s interested in sports, nature and activities. There is something for everyone’s taste! The varied mountain terrain around Voss makes it an excellent base for walks and mountain hikes. There are plenty of lakes and rivers for fishing and kayaking, and good terrains for cycling and golfing. The more adventurous can try out sky diving, paragliding, rafting, river boarding and white water paddling. Voss also has an indoor wind tunnel and a high rope course.

This was by far the best breakfast I’ve ever had in a hostel! Would stay here just to eat again

Such a cool hostile - we were there two nights so got to experience a number of the 24 hr front desk staff and they were all really friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. The included breakfast was amazing and so was our very reasonably priced evening meal. Cool place.

The building needs a renovation. The private rooms are very expensive for just a very basic accommodation and little services.

We booked a twin room but were given a room with bunk beds. We specifically booked the twin room to avoid this. Other guests that we know had the same issue. Clearly the hostel over books the twin rooms. The other guests were offered a slight refund but we were not when asked why we had a bunk bed room. Very dissatisfied.

Dear Caitlin, We are sorry to hear that you where not happy with your stay. All our rooms has bunkbeds, except our Lake View Rooms. We do not have any rooms with only two seperate beds. I can see in our booking that you were given a standard private room as you ordered for 2 guests, so we do not understand what you were not happy with? We have never given a refund or got any complaints that there are bunkbeds in the twin room.
