This lodge is located at the end of the hike over the famous Besseggen Ridge, arguably the most popular hike in Norway, and can also be reached by boat. So it is a bit crowded and there is a sense they know they don't have to work hard - it lacks the charm and soul of some more isolated lodges.... More

I loved this place! After doing the 7 hour Besseggen hike from Gjendesheim to Memurubu (a great, less crowded way to do it) this was exactly what I needed. The location is beautiful, the girl at reception was super helpful, and we had a room in the newer building that had a bunk bed with a full bed on the... More

If you want to go Bessegen it is recomnded to divide the trip into to. First take the boat from Gjendesheim to Memurubu, than overnight in the Turist guest house and go Bessegen on the other day. Me and my girlfirend did it this way and it was great. Beautifull views all around, helpfull staff and not very high prices.

We stayed one night at Memurubu with 16 children from 6th class (10-11 year olds). The staff served the children well. The rooms are large, clean and give, together with great food, the best possible start for a long trip the next day. Recommended!

The magnificence of the Bessegen hike stood in stark contrast with the extreme mediocrity of this poorly-run facility. When there are no other options, no other places competing for lodgings in this particular area, I guess there isn´t much incentive for these folks to improve upon anything...Kudos to the lovely young Swedish woman who was the one bright light in...

The personal is quite unfriendly and that in a country where I just happened to meet friendly people. We were not explained anything, where the... More

Paid 220 (27 euro) for a night in a dorm. Normal price but there is nothing included. Another 110 for breakfast (14 euro). You have to pay extra if you want to take a shower. And there was no hot water. Biggest disappointment was the dinner. We asked if they had a vegetarian menu. They told us no problem. We... More

We stayed during our 5days trek over Jutenheimen National Park. Because our budget is limited in this expensive country, we prefer BYO style than fancy halfboard but there is no choice here in Norway. But this country doesn't allow us to do... The rooms, dining, lounge in the main building looks fancy. However the dorm room we stayed is half-underground... More

Nice private lodge, very strategic location, but unfriendly owner. Nor welcoming neither friendly… Prices comparable with DNT(Norwegian Trekking Association) huts. Do not have much to add but Tripadvisor wants 200 characters..

Food is reasonable and you can make sandwiches for the day hike as is customary in such lodges in Norway. the hosts are very nice and helpful. The lodge location is excellent. two very popular...
