I loved this hostel. It is really cute and cozy, the lounging areas are so comfortable with a fireplace, pool table, blankets, (and TV if you need that). They have a nice outdoor area with picnic tables, bikes, and I think even canoes/kayaks (not exactly sure). The rooms were also cute, and the waterfront view is beautiful. You have control of the temperature and there were outlets near the bed. Lots of cubby spaces and a nice ensuite. The shower and toilet are just a single room without divider, so be sure to remove the toilet paper before showering :). I slept in the single bed and it was so comfortable, and the pillow was really nice too (linens are included). The included breakfast was DELICIOUS and had so many options; fresh fruit, yogurts, salad, veggies, granola, musely, peanut butter, nutella, jam, a variety of fish, hard boiled eggs, toast, gluten free & organic options. It was excellent! The hostel is just a few minutes walk from the train station and town center. The staff is very warm & welcoming. The woman at the reception in the evening had great recomendations for dinner. Lillian at reception in the morning was so lovely to talk with, we chatted for a while, and she also had many recommendations for places to visit in Oslo, Bergen, or Voss. I wish I could spend my entire trip at this hostel!

Comfortable beds, good shower, great view, tasty breakfast, good service, convenient location . This was great value in a very expensive town. Lovely walk along the lake to get there. A good option even for a couple

Room tip: Lake view is good

For a hostel this place is clean and very friendly with the most amazing food all sourced locally, the breakfast is plentiful with a good variety with fresh breads, meats , cheeses, any many other items, well worth the trip and will definitely be coming back

Dream location on the lake. Big open common areas inside and out, all taking advantage of the view. The complimentary breakfast spread far exceeds expectation. Staff super friendly and helpful. Close to town, hiking trails and the train station. Kayaks available at hostel.
Would definitely stay here again.

We stayed for a night as part of our kayaking trip. As we'd had a long day, we decided to have an evening meal at the hostel and were not disappointed - the beef stew was to die for, expensive (not unusual for Norway) but a huge portion and delicious. The breakfast the next morning was amazing as well - so much to choose from! Also, the views are lovely!
