This place is only about less than 10mins from the station/jetty. Receptionist is friendly and willingly to tell you where to hike if you are geared.

Actually, the centre so small that everything is within walking distant.

We chose a cabin for ourselves as we wanted privacy but not on the expensive side. Little cabins face the entire Flam with mountains and trees in a scenic view.

We cooked in our little cabin too though the washing area is in another "house" which makes it inconvenient as it was raining and cold. Otherwise, experience is fantastic.

You will wake up to a nice view of the entire Flam. Step out of your cabin and sit in the front yard with a hot cup of kaffe or tea and breakfast. Excellent.

We camped here early April and when we arrived the lady at reception was more than welcoming! Such a pleasant reception after a day of travelling and sightseeing!! The lady was extremely helpful and told us all the things we could do around Flåm, as well as giving us maps and directions of where to go so, much so that we stayed here 2 nights.
The atmosphere is so relaxed and a beautiful view of the mountains - it was also nice to have the owners in a less formal manner, in that if we needed anything we could have just knocked on her house door.

We had the campsite to ourselves, with newly refurbished, spotless toilets and showers which were a joy in the cold, early mornings! The owners have done the campsite beautifully and I even spied the owner working with some lambs beside the campsite.

Very close to the tiny village of Flåm which has a Coop and a train station, as well as boat tours along the fjord and a beautiful big waterfall if you want the hike. Also suggested was the lookout point you can drive to.

A good unexpected visit!

We had a very nice stay at this hostel. Rooms were modern and clean, Wifi was working without any problems. Bathroom was also very clean. Kitchen is large and well-equipped. Surrounding is beautiful. Staff was very friendly and helpful. For Norwegian standards not expensive at all; excellent value for money. Would stay here again.

We stayed in a female only dorm with four beds, bathroom included. Everything was clean (though the bathroom didn't have any soap), the kitchen was fully equipped, and since there's a little supermarket nearby, we definitely cooked. Wifi was available, and the owners let us stow luggage away on our last day while we hiked around the area, and then let us back in to use the kitchen after we'd already checked out. Superb service and a great stay.

We were really impressed with this hostel. When we arrived we received a very warm welcome and we were even upgraded to an ensuite room. Lovely modern and clean room with beautiful views of the mountains. Perfect location-minutes from the Flam train. The kitchen was large with all modern facilities with a large dining area. The room rate was very reasonable-the cheapest we had paid in Norway by far! We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend to anyone.

The cabins are great! The one I stayed consists of 3 rooms and spacious and well equipped kitchen where you can prepare something to eat and socialize with others. The place is surrounded with trees, which makes you feel even closer to nature.

Just one disadvantage: toilets and showers are located in a different building, but who cares!

There is no many choice for staying in Flam, so we chose this lovely camping site and stayed one night here.
We loved the apple trees and cabin here. The cabin is clean and warm. To take a walk here is also a relaxable thing.
Only the bathroom, toilet and kitchen are outside the cabin. It is a little cold when we go out the cabin at night.
You should pay for the hot water in shower. 10 Kr for 5 minutes. Previously I thought it means the time for flowing hot water. But actually it means the continuously 5 minutes, even when the hot water not flowing. So be quick or prepare enough 10 kr coins.
