I stayed in a single room here for one night. It is in a really great location and a really unique experience. The good things are the price and location. The bad things are how small the rooms are and the lack of common areas. There was no where to sit and eat in the place, which was a bit... More

Dirty cabin. Uncomfortable and old. You have to pay ten euro for sheets and ten for towels. No tv, no phon. The rooms are very small and ugly . No breakfast, only a terrible bar/restaurant in the village ...

Charming room, big window. Cozy. Silent. I really liked the place. BUT the staff is NOT nice AT ALL. We ended up getting a beer there before bed time and they said we couldn't sit there because I was also eating my own food..!!! ABSURD. I PAID for the beer. I PAID for the room. AND I have the right... More

Unique location but as pricey as it gets in Norway! Here you will find the unique combination of high mountains, rough sea and beaches with azure blue water. The accommodation is as simple as it gets, just a bad and a roof. But the experience is priceless!

Staff were very friendly. The setting is gorgeous. A is a great place to stay and definitely a place you should stay on the Lofoten, glad we did. Amenities are basic. Everything is clean. We stayed in the shared rooms. There was no other availability at the time we booked.

Situated at the very south end of the Lofotes, this rustic and homey place is worth a visit. To sleep in such a fishermen's cabin and to wake up to the clamor of the sea gulls definitely is an experience one should go through when visiting the island. The rooms were small and basic, yet very clean and newly furnished.... More

I stayed for one night in the hostel cabin. My room was a 4-bed female dorm (bunk bed and two single beds). The room was tiny but very cute and authentic rorbuer style. Not much space though so might be a problem if carrying a lot of luggage. Even though the booking stated that reception closes at 18:00, the receptionist... More

We spent one night in a double room, with twin beds and shared bathroom and kitchen. Our room was large and clean, and included a sink, bed linens, and towels. The beds were quite small. It was not soundproof, therefore it was possible to hear everything that was happening in nearby rooms. We couldn't connect to Wi-Fi from our room,... More

The owner was very helpful and friendly, Particually the authentic village A is a real pearl of authenticity and beauty. The red huts, the seagulls, the blue sea and the friendly peaple... More
