Es ist natuerlich keine kein Komfort oder Standard eines 4-5 Sterne Hotels, aber das haben wir auch nicht erwartet. Es hat alles was man unseres Erachtens braucht, zu einem fuer norwegische Verhaeltnisse akzeptablen Preis. Die Lage unter dem Wasserfall ist einmalig! Abendessen und Fruehstueck hervorragend, koennen mit besten Hotels mithalten.

+ modern, clean room with ditto bathroom + friendly - tiny kitchen in big enough room, way too few pots and pans, not enough kitchen tools - no wifi in the rooms, only in the main building, not even in the lounge area of the hostel!

Very nice hostel with supreme location: We enjoyed our stay very much and would recommend it at all times. The mattresses was a little uncomfortable, maybe because we stayed with our kids in a room with two bunk beds. Otherwise we loved it all.
