We really enjoyed this 2days-stay in Ålesund. The hostel further was really cleaned and cosy. It included a rich breakfast buffet. The personnel was very kind and clearly willing to help us with good advises regarding city's sights. Excellent!

The staff is very friendly and the location is near to the entrance of Aksla. The atmosphere is great as well which make me feel leisure and comfortable. Also it's near the supermarket so I can buy the food in an easy way to safe money. Only thing that should be improved is that the sockets are not enough><
