This hostel is so cute! It's set just outside of town in a fielded area, and is painted a pretty red with a sod roof. Rural-feeling and charming! We stayed in a private room at this hostel during the shoulder season. We came to Andalsnes to hike the Romsdalseggen Ridge. The room was clean, and the beds were comfortable. Bathroom... More

We came off-season (eg mid September) which meant we had to call to get someone to drive up to the reception area. The woman was not very friendly, and quite frankly unfriendly when we tried to understand what we still had to pay (as we made a down payment but were charged extra for sheets though not for towels...). Rooms... More

Purpose built (1970s) hostel to the west of Andalsnes offering a variety of accommodation. If you can only visit one place in Norway then this is the place. Easily accessible by road, bus or train (but 7km road tunnel to west is a block to cyclists or walkers – old road around the fjord is NOT accessible). Spectacular scenery in... More

We arrived here having come from the HI hostel in Hellesylt and were a little worries after having an awful experience there but could not have been happier with what we found... So welcoming, so clean, big rooms, lots of showers, a good kitchen, strong wifi (especially downstairs), a really lovely living room with comfy sofas and a TV and... More

The place was clean, only 1 and half km from station and bus service is available. The town Andalsnes is very small and hostel is at the great location. Dorms , male, females and private rooms are available. Large equipped kitchen helped to prepare meals. Breakfast is served between 7.30 and 9.30. It had 30+ things to accommodate everyone's need,...

We stayed in room 2 of the white building for five nights. It was quiet, clean and it had a balcony with a great view. We had to share the bathroom and kitchen with two other rooms, but this caused little to no trouble. Breakfasts (available between 7:30 and 9:30) were copious and varied. The bus to Trollstigen/Geiranger/etc. leaves from... More

We booked a double room with private bathroom. This meant we were in the annex facing the main building, sharing bathroom and toilet with one other couple, which was fine. Went over to the main building in the evening, enjoyed the free coffee. Surprised that the few people around spent most of their time playing with their mobile phones rather... More

This hostel is a piece of calm at the outskirts of Andalsnes. It is a bit out of the center, 10-15 minute walk, but this setting makes it very quiet and peaceful. Kind staff, lovely breakfast, clean facilities. I very much enjoyed my stay there and would not hesitate to stay there again.

This hostel is in a beautiful location, ideally suited for hiking the Romsdalseggen Ridge, an incredible hike! The place was very homey and comfortable, and the breakfast was very generous. Our room had plenty of lamps, plugs, and storage space, and its own sink which was very nice to have. The common area is comfortable and the operators are so... More
