Hostelling International

Welcome to our hostel

HI Sortland - Mortens Krukke is a totally renovated old barn finished 2015. This house provides a historic link from how life were in the 1950-70 s. The north norwegian small fisher-/farm culture way of living were the one sustainable way then. It provided income and shelter for familieas and animals. On this farm they had sheep and hens. Olga and Sverre, which lived here, were at a great scale self-sufficent. With potatoes, herbs, fish, eggs and meat from the sheep. In this period nothing were thrown away, but used or put aside for later times. This hostel seek to educate and inform our visitors of this sustainable way of living, which were a very common way of life in 1950-70 s. And today we grow a small amount of potatoes.

Die Sauberkeit im "Bärenhäuschen" war etwas mangelhaft, im Vergleich mit Preis/Leistung. Die Sauberkeit im Haus selber wo sich die Dusche befindet inkl. Küche war sehr gut. Ansonsten, ein schönes Plätzchen um sich zu entspannen, es war ein schöner Aufenthalt. Vielen Dank an Morten und Anita, ihr habt mich super Unterstützt. Ich empfehle euch weiter :-)
