Yes, that's the same company.Edited: 06 May 2014, 05:47
It can also be two different, since at Eliassen there's at least two different owners, but the location is the same.
By the way, it's not a hotel but sea houses.
I think there are 2 types of accommodation with Eliassen - the rorbuer ("sea houses") and the main house they call a hostel which has 5 rooms (4 double and a single) and shared facilities. I guess you may have booked one of these rooms through hostels.com and perhaps a rorbu through the website?
Replies 2 and 3 are a bit misleading. A 'sjohus' (literally 'sea house') is a large fish or other warehouse converted to accommodation with many rooms, usually hostel type with simple standard and shared bathrooms. A rorbu (plural 'rorbuer' - literally 'rower's house') is a small cabin where itinerant fishermen used to live, now converted in various ways and with varying standards into a self-contained holiday cottage. I'm guessing the OP has booked one of each type, same place, same owner.
Thank you all.
