everything is just decent in this youth hostel : they welcome you, keep your luggage the whole day if you're ahead of time disembarking of the 8 o'clock Hurtigruten ship from Bergen, offer you a large and complete room that needs to be a bit refreshed, breakfast if ok, you can cook your meal in a kitchen in the basement...

It is by far the cheapest place to stay in Ålesund. I stayed in the women's dorm. It's a nice, cousy room and very clean. The kitchen is big enough and also very clean. There are 12 places to sit. The breakfast was amazing. The people there are very friendly and very helpful. They let me store some of my... More

Alesund is a small city and the hostel has good location, you can walk everywhere in the city. It was clean. Common room is huge. Price is normal for this hostel as Norway is very expensive in general.

A party of 4, my friends and I travelled from Bergen to Trondheim by car in mid-October 2013. We reached Ålesund on our first night. Since we did not book anything in advance, we were struggling once arrived in the city to find affordable accomodation: a couple of calls to some hotels were either not answered, or offered us solutions...

We had just one night here and left on the south-bound hurtigruten at midnight next day. The hostel was clean and pleasant, double room perfectly good with comfortable bed. Breakfast fine. I really like these continental breakfasts and the hostel's was good. We also used the kitchen and produced two courses of grevad lax and beef stroganoff.

We had a private room which meant we had two sets of bunk beds and a bath. There was also a kitchen but a sign stated that the kitchens were no longer in service but we did have an electric kettle. We were traveling north from Bergen to Trodheim by boat, bus and train and only spent the one night.... More

Old but welcoming building; spacious room with en suite; we appreciated the kitchen cooking facilities - eating out in Norway is expensive for English people. I disagree with a previous reviewer : breakfast was varied and plentiful and well organised. The hostel is extremely well situated to visit the town. You can also buy a packed lunch at a reasonable... More

Accommodation in Alesund is very expensive, hard to come by and practically impossible for groups or people travelling in awkward numbers. So, the solution is this Youth Hostel Advantages Located outside a park, leading to viewing platform Room spacious and clean Use of common room Breakfast room atmospheric, featuring an interesting Jesus portrait to assist in your day’s moral guidance...
