Flam Vandrerhjem is a campsite and a hostel in Flåm. Flåm is a really small village in Norway and is the gateway to Fjords. Some of the Fjord cruises start from here.
The entire campsite is huge and offers grounds for camping (for those who wish to bring their own tents and caravans) a hostel (with single, double and 4 bed rooms) as well as log cabins.
We had booked a log cabin (for 4 ) in advance and its advised to do so, since its heavily booked. The cabin was beautiful. Very neat and clean, had 4 beds (bunks) with a pillow and quilt each. Along with that a dining table and a small kitchenette (with a stove,utensils, crockery and cutlery). Very comfortable for 4 people. You have to get your own bedsheets and pillow covers or get them for an extra cost (which in Norway is not cheap!). Better to carry your own.
There is a block with showers and toilets (you have to pay 10Nok for a shower!) and another block with a washing machine and area to wash utensils. They also expect you to clean your cabin yourself and leave it in the exact same condition as you got it. Brooms etc are provided.
There is a small shop which offers basic food (bread, jam, yogurt etc). Its a little expensive and its better to just carry your own food stuff from a local grocery shop. The owner is a little strict and expects you to follow all rules.
There is only 1 grocery shop around, and everything shuts by 8pm, so if you don't get anything to eat by then and don't want to spend a lot of money eating at the only hotel in Flam, you'll probably go hungry.
Overall, it was a great stay. Very beautifully located and very clean. Also, it offers a whole range of accommodation so its good for all kinds of travelers. Just make sure you get dinner by 8pm and you'll be good!
