It would be good to inform visitors that the hostel is on a toll road and 40 kr is needed, cash, with no change available. There is no WiFi.

Did not realize how far up and out into the mountains it was. Great place if you were panning in just hiking Rondane. Otherwise too far away from anything else. Didn’t stay out second night. Found some place easier along our route.

Questions about whether bed linen and handkerchiefs were included in the price was raised. I see that that question is solved via the price list. No prices are set up for breakfast and afternoon meals. These price levels are higher than in a 4 star hotel 150 NOK vs 4 star hotel Scandic NOK 75. 2 course evening meal NOK 345 vs Scandic 4 star NOK 250 and NOK 395 for a 3 course meal. There are no shops for daily needs and food around. People should be warned they should buy their needs in the village of Sel if they want self catering. There is also road toll to be paid from NOK 40 to NOK 100. That should also be mentioned on your site.
