Staying in a small hut that was very clean and cosy,but without toilet it was a long walk all the way up to the main entrance to find a ladies room. Apaprt from that everything was very nice, - clean kitchen facilities and very helpfull staff. The location close to the river was perfect.

Hostel is a secondary activity for the proprietor, at least at this time of year, and it shows. Housing a number of school classes for rafting etc. was their main interest. I was given an older cabin where there were ants in part of the room. Dinner was not offered. Breakfast was good. Nearest food is 6 km away (Evje). Very nice surroundings near a river and forest.

Die kleinen 2er-Hytten waren ausgezeichnet ausgestattet und gemütlich (Kochplatte, Geschirr, Tisch, Stühle, Heizung, Kühlschrank)! Sehr gutes Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis.
