Dont expect much, but use this option if you are out of others. We arrived late with Hurtigruta and host Roar met us as agreed. The hostel offers common kitchen, shower and toilet. 6 pax dorms or cabins. Located a short walk from the Hurtigruta dock, Lofoten Rent-a-Car is 50 meters away!

I read about this place out of an Israelis backpackers' blog in Norway. It was obvious from their experience that Stamsund Hostel is one of the places not to be missed in north of Norway. I loved it and I do hope to be back soon. you get a home kind of feeling when you are there. I have met... More

Me and an old friend did an interrail trip through Norway and Sweden and Roar's hostel was the best we could get. The nature around is so nice and relaxing. Great cooking on the fire stove and we could even borrow a small boat and fishing rod to catch a fresh dinner. It took us 20 minutes to catch 6... More

This is a nice, pretty hostel in a nice location. The owner helps thinking about what is good for you, and there are lots of nice things to do in the neighborhood. We would definitely go here again if we were to go to Lofoten again.

We have visited this hostel 3 times, the first 2 times staying in the hostel proper, the last time in one of the 'rorbu's (cottages) as we were 6 persons travelling together. The area is beautiful, you can walk up the mountains or borrow a boat and go fishing. Roar is extremely helpful and for example once invited us to... More

The owner, Roar Justad, is mythical, and the place is fantastic: you only hear the seagulls and you can live among fantastic colours, aboveall during the summer nights, when it's always clear. You can meet people from all the world, the accomodation is simple but very cheap. You can fish when you want, because Roar gives you the boats free,... More

It is a nice place in quite boring city. There is not much to see in Stamsund but it is a good place to rest. The hostel is located in an old-fishermen house, it has also 6 or 7 houses, much more comfortable then beds in a dormitory. It is the cheapest place I managed to find in whole Norway... More

4 of us decided to book into this hostel after we'd heard a positive review from another tourist we'd met a few days earlier. Finding the hostel wasn't too hard - there is not much else in the very small and quiet town of Stamsund. Upon arriving we were met by the owner and manager of the hostel who goes... More
