Spent one night here with a colleague. It was off-season and therefore we got a nice rorbu at a competitive price. Dinner cooked by the very friendly owner: excellent halibut in a very nice personally decorated dining room! Would definitely come back! Great for hiking Ballstadheia.I thought the room was great - but taste is different. I was painted, simple...

We were hosted in Rorbu n°12, room 2: a perfect nest for plenty of bedbugs that ruined our stay in Ballstad and the end of our holidays (and possibly our own apartments... only the future will tell). Maybe others have been there and will be luckier than us. But if we were you, we would not play the lottery.

We found this booking last minute; otherwise we wouldn't have taken it. The rooms are very colourful I will give them that from bright pink to turquoise blue. The standard of breakfast and restrooms are adequate for passers by and hikers. I wouldn't say it will suit the majority of tourists.

We arrived late in the night in the middle of a blizzard and had prearranged a late check in only to be left out in the snow in the dark cold. Had difficulty getting in contact with the owners and later found out they don't often check their bookings. Was originally left in a small cabin we were under the...

Kræmmervika Rorbuer - Havets Helter is by far the worst place I have ever stayed. If we have had the money to it we would pay the neighbor Rorbu for a room to stay, but we where on a budget .. The beds was full of yellow and brown stains, I am very happy that we had our sleeping bags...

This place is by far the worst place I have ever been. It was super expensive and worth nothing. The Rorbu felt like it could fall apart any moment, the beds was more brown than white and smelled awful. The whole place was dirty. I chose to sleep on the floor with my sleeping bag insted of the beds. I...

Our rorbuer at Kræmmervika Havn was clean and functional, there was a simple kitchen and plenty of space for 5 people to sleep- but perhaps not be in the cabin all day! Linens were inexpensive to borrow and the beds were comfortable. The walls are quite thin and the floors creak a lot- we thought it was part of the...

It's simple but very cozy to stay in a rorbu as the one Kraemmervika Rorbuer offers. The only thing I would have wanted is wifi in the hut, but that was only available at the reception which is located 10 minutes walk away. Breakfast was great. Lots to choose from. Friendly staff! The location was marvellous and nice terrain to...

I spent one night in the hostel in front of reception. This was the dirtiest place I have ever had to sleep. The bed was full of yellow stains and really uncomfortable. I had to place the blanket between the bed and my bed linen. The bathroom was dirty, with pieces of paper with rests of excrements below the toilet....

I actually expected a 10-bed dorm, but it turned out to be a traditional Rorbu(fisherman's cabin), which was a nice surprise. I arrived after 21:00, when I called them it wasn't a problem and they made sure I would get the key and the bed linnen. The rooms are a bit light though due to the midnight sun, but this...
