Kein Komfort oder Standard eines 4-5 Sterne Hotels, aber das ist auch nicht zu erwarten. Es hat alles was man unseres Erachtens braucht, bis auf die Stockbetten ( fuer aeltere Menschen schwierig). Die Lage am Fluss idyllisch! Fruehstueck hervorragend. Der Essensraum mit offenem Feuer im alten Blockhaus und in altem Stil: wunderschoen. Etwas schwer zu finden, Beschilderungen mit Hinweis auf die Jugendherberge an der Durchfahrtstrasse von Sjoa waere hilfreich.

Nous avons passé 2 nuits à Sjoa pour profiter du cadre et des activités (rafting). Le petit déjeuner est copieux. Vous êtes accueillis dans un décor typiquement norvégien avec un feu de bois. Les chambres sont spacieuses. La cuisine collective est très bien équipée. A recommander
