I don't know how it is, because nobody was there, it allowed me to book it online as I have always done, and when is close you get no availability. So after driving to there, I found it was closed. I had to find where to stay that night, so I ended 30 mins away paying for a hotel. No answers to the phone.

I had a great time at Hellesylt hostel. The building is old and needs renovation, but the staff was friendly and helpfull, and they have a big common area, which could be really good!

I only spent on night instead of 2 as I did not feel comfortable. The hostel appear very run down and neglected, it is in a good location and lots of rooms. You have to go down stairs for toilet and showers, I had no hot water. The room smelt musty and damp. Breakfast was included but no water hot or cold and no sign of hostel staff.

Great place to stay, short walk from town, waterfall worth a visit. We were the only ones staying but breakfast was really well laid on. Highly recommended

The hostel is located with a nice view, but sadly the balcony is eqiuped with very poor balcony furniture, so you cant enjoy it + the highway runs just under/in front of the hostel. The inside of the hostel in the main building is covered with mold. They try to hide it, but when the windows are closed, the whole building stinks of toxic mold. It is very clear, that the hostelowner and the staff does not care for this place in any way. In my opinion, this place should be closed down.
