Ilulissat Hostel
Reviewed 4 September 2012

This is a great option for some budget accommodation in Ilulissat. Conveniently located close to the centre of town, clean and cosy rooms. All the rooms are small twin rooms which is great - no large noisy dorms. Its no luxurious but its warm and friendly. The staff were very helpful, we got a free lift with World of Greenland from the airport (by chance they were dropping some other people off). The hostel staff could not have been more helpful - even helped carry my bag to my room (a service which was not provided at the considerably more expensive Hotel Arctic). Highly recommended.

Stayed: August 2012, travelled as a couple

In the summer season the staff of Ilulissat Hostel administer a school dormitory with approx. 14 double rooms. It is available only during two summer months as in the remaining part of the year it is occupied by school children. According to the staff, staying there is much better than in the hostel. We had a very big kitchen with lots of devices (including dishwasher and big owen) so you could save much money on preparing your own food (especially fresh fish which is the cheapest option in Greenland). The staff is very friendy and helpful. I had a great view of the icebergs from my window but those having rooms on the other side were less lucky - their windows were exactly in front of... small cemetery.

Room Tip: Choose a room with the view of icebergs, not cemetery :-)

I spent two nights in this hostel. 400 dkk (50 Euro) par night. There is a kitchen with a lot of stuffs, two rooms for stay with other people. The rooms are with two beds, without toilet. WiFi is excluded. This is a beautiful place. In a beautiful land. Ragna and Henrik are very very very pErfect.

A great place to stay if you are in the tourist capital of Greenland. Facilities are basic but clean and warm, just what you need if you are in the area. Staff are friendly and helpful. Very good value for money.
Be aware that there may be some disturbance on a Friday night as it is in a residential district and some of the locals like to party! If it wasn't for this it would warrant 5 stars.

The hostel is one of the cheapest options in town.
Its not luxury but its cozy and clean, with a fine kitchen to cook your own food.

The rooms are okay, with eighter bunkbeds or single beds.
The hostel is right in the middle of town.
