I struggled to get there late in the evening and the staff was very helpful in getting me a number for the taxi and promising to stay open until I arrived.

IT IS A WONDERFUL HOSTEL, FROM ITS ROOMS, TO THEIR PRECIOUS CABINS. ALSO HAS A HUGE PARKING WHERE YOU CAN LEAVE YOUR CAR AND MAKE THE ROUTE OF PREIKESTOLEN WITHOUT HAVING TO PAY 200 NOK OF PARKING. THE BREAKFAST IS COMPLETE AND VERY RICH EVERYTHING. IN FINAL THE BEST HOSTEL OF THE AREA AND OF ALL THAT I HAVE BEEN IN NORWAY.

Hi Thank you for Your review We have experienced some lack of wifi in areas in the dormatory, so I Guess that`s where you stayed. We will see if that is something which can be fixed after the season. Welcome back! Olaf Manager
