We really enjoyed staying here. The decor is relaxed retro with big comfy sofas to chill out on and a really well organised kitchen. There is one person always around during the day who is very friendly and helpful with good tips for getting the best out of your stay. Ask to go whale watching in Arnes boat - maximum... More

The writer's home was comfortable, clean, cozy and very well equipped. The vibe is relaxed and homely, and it's a perfect option to rest in between winter excursions. The staff is welcoming and not fussy at all. Even if it is not a cheap hostel, you make up for it in comfort, because so many facilities are available for free.... More

This place was great. Perfect location, an easy walk to the city center. Beautiful, cozy home. Hosts were wonderful and kind. I would happily stay here again. Would be great to rent out the whole place with a group of people.

Everything is made here to make you feel at home. We staid 2 nights in the writer house and the only regret is that we could not stay longer. The room was clean and hot enough (we came in winter). The first night they forgot to provide us the towels that we booked so they gave us for free. The... More

I spent three nights here recently. It was a great experience and I'd come back for sure on my next trip to Tromsø. The staff are great and it was a quiet place to unwind in between day hikes and walks into the center. It wasn't too far to walk into the center of town and there's a convenience store... More

I went there to run tromso marathon. It's well maintained and the decoration is good. The room is slightly small but good enough for one person. The reception is warm. It's a bit far away from the center, this is a bit opposite to the website's suggestion. I find it's a bit pricey. I paid more than 100 USD per... More

The staff are super friendly, welcoming and helpful with authentic hospitality. They are unobtrusive yet responsive. You can feel at home here. It's cozy, quiet and quaint. It all depends on what you want from accommodation. I would say this is a peaceful place away from typical tourist centres. This is one of my favourite places of all my travels.

As cute as it gets, people are charming. Really one to recommend. I'm going through Tromsø again in a few days and have booked it there again. It felt a bit weird thinking I would meet no one the day I arrived because I was after the office hours but it was completely ok. Walk in and you feel at... More
