I stayed a week at the Borlaug Hostel. The surroundings are really beautiful although you really need a car to explore everything. The hostel is very nice. It is run by a very kind family who serve a delicious breakfast each morning. They sit in with the guests each morning and if you have any questions about your daytrips, public transportation, about anything actually, they try to help you as good good as possible. I don't think I have suggestions for improvement. I really enjoyed it

the location of the Hostel is very strategic for visiting the area most visited places, it is very quiet although close to the river and the main road. the place has plenty of parking space and the village of Aurland offer many otion of activities in the area.

Saubere Unterkünfte, alles vorhanden. Sehr feines reichhaltiges Frühstück. Gut mit dem Bus zu erreichen (aber Achtung nur 3 Busverbindungen pro Tag, unbedingt reservieren)

I wish it had specified somewhere (unless I missed it) that the private room would have four bunkbeds. Wasn't expecting that. Also, we couldn't read the allergen information on the breakfast so ended up not eating any of it. Other than that, it was a nice stay.
