“Wow what a special place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 June 2014

I normally don't write reviews, but wow what a great experience we had here, only booked 3 nights & ended up staying 5. The owners were very welcoming and had a great warmth to their guests, very helpful, showed us a lot to do. Go to the end of the dramatic road and walk to the view, fantastic. the best value we had in NOrway & would not hesitate to recommend, the rooms are basic but views outstanding. We went on the kayak and glacier walk which was memorable and trekked to the top of the mountain. The high road was also breathtaking and the ferry ride that is recommended superb. The kitchen was very homely and made Norway more affordable. Eplet made our holiday and it's people Deserve a pat on the back, pretty unique in the world me thinks !

Room Tip: Corner rooms have more light, the kids loved the TP

I just left Eplet after 4 amazing days there.I didnt do all the activaties in that time as there is so much to do if you like nature.If you want to party late at night and drink alot dont come here.If you want to see some of the best views in norway (and the world) and do some great walks and have a peacefull night sleep then you will enjoy it as much asI did.Kitchen is the cleanest i have ever seen in a hostel (i have stayed in alot) rooms are fine.chilling out on the hammacks was great.very friendly and helpfull staff who would stop what they are doing to help you.all round a great place if you like the great outdoors. wd went to the local quiz on friday night and were made to feel very welcome by the locals(we came last as the questions were in norwegion but got a prize anyway)

ps did i say free mountain bikes (nothing is free in scandanvia)

A happy scots man

There was only two other guests when we stayed here, and they were staying in a separate building which houses the dorm area of the hostel. In the main house has doubles and is more like a hotel. We had the main house to yourself, which is nice because there is only one shower/two toilets. The room is rustic, but we had a small shared balconey overlooking the apple orchard, town, and fjord. The room was quiet, but I can envision it being noisey if it was full. There is a kitchen you can use, and the hostel has some groceries so you can make some food. The owner is very friendly, and invited us to give a bottle to the young lambs. There is a parking lot, and free internet in the common area. Overall, this was my favorite place we stayed in Scandinavia.

Our stay at Eplet was fantastic. Upon arrival, one of the owners sat down with us and gave us an overview of the area and all of the activities that were available. She even recommended a scenic travel route for us to our next destination. The price was perfect for travelers on a budget.
We were look for a true Norwegian experience and that is exactly what we got. The rooms were small, but you definitely won't want to spend any time in there other than to sleep. Our room overlooked the orchard and fjord in the back yard. The views were absolutely amazing. The hotel is also just two minutes away from the ferry, which will take you to one of the UNESCO World Heritage Stave Churches. Highly recommended!

We stayed at this place for 4 nights, which was more than we planned at the begining. If the paradise exists, it is probably there :). Everything was absolutely perfect, rooms are tiny but cleaned, with amazing view. Our host was one of the best host we have ever met, very nice with plenty of good tips for activities all around. Everything is done to you can feel like at home at it was exactly as we felt. You can use free bike, ferry that takes you to the stave church and to the waterfalls is 2 min from the house. We also could visit a glacier the same as to climb the mountain with the magnificent view on fjords. As regards the house, you have several terrase with BBQ to your disposal. You can relax in the hammock in the garden. Or you can too simply hang out in the cosy living room. Kitchen is fully equiped with everything you might need to make your own food. You can also buy some basic food directly from the host with no extra fees in case of the village shop is closed.The village seems to be a place where time stops. The only negative thing to say about this place is that one day you have to get back to the real life :) We would certainly recommend you to stay at this place !!!!!!

Humble but amazing. Hotels are for hide-a-ways. Hostels are for culture. Amazing place. Clean, safe and friendly....amazingly cheap. Even free if you want to pick berry's for a few hours a day! Staff is norwegian but the guests are from around the world!

Room Tip: For the socially outgoing explorer!!!

We stayed a couple of nights in this place during our honeymoon and we really loved the experience.

It is not a hotel but more like a mix of a youth hostel and a B&B, so there some annoyances like no breakfast or shared bathroom, but it is completely compensated by charm of the place, the warm welcoming, the beauty of the village and the number of proposed activities around. We will certainly come back in the future.
