Sehr geehrtes Hosteling International Team. Durch die derzeitige Coronapandemie konnten wir leider am 17.03.2020 unsere Reise nach Norwegen nicht antreten. Dies wurde ums am 14.03.2020 zuerst über Colorline mitgeteilt (Einstellung Fähre). Sofort nach dieser Mitteilung haben wir begonnen unsere Übernachtungen in Norwegen zu stornieren. Dies gelang uns sehr gut, bis auf die Jugendherberge HI Lofoten A. Dieser haben wir zunächst 2 E-Mails (auf Deutsch und Norwegisch) mit Angaben der Buchungsnummer geschickt - ohne Antwort. Dann erfolgten noch 2 E-Mails mit Lesebestätigung. Hier wurde zumindest bekannt, dass unsere E-Mail eingegangen und gelesen wurde. Eine Antwort erhielten wir auf keine der E-Mails. Auch Versuche der Telefonischen Kontaktaufnahme unsererseits blieben erfolglos. Ich hoffe nun, dass im Nachgang nicht noch Zahlungsforderungen der Jugendherberge über sie an uns zugehen. mit freundlichen Grüßen Michaela Hahn

With the limited reception hours, it would be good if check-in for pre-booked accommodation could be done through information in an e-mail, instead of having to walk through half the village to find the reception, which most likely is closed when you arrive. The rooms are nice and warm and the beds are comfortable, so staying here in winter is no problem. Bring toilet paper, as there was none available at the hostel when we were there. More information about Å in general would be good. Especially information like that while there are grocery stores a couple of kilometers away, there's also the possibility to buy food at the museum shop, "Gammel-butikken", quite close to the hostel.
