“Cheap, and there's a reason...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

The price, compared to norwegian standards, is low. However, there's some things one has to know before booking. We reserved one double room (as advertised on the website), but were accomodated in a cabin located some 400 meters from the reception. Annoying if you drive, difficult if you walk.
The cabin was dirty. Really dirty, like it had not been cleaned for several weeks. No proper beds in the cabin. You are supposed to sleep on a wooden plateau covered with a layer of foam rubber. Unsafe step-ladder to get to the plateau.
Towels and bedlinen not included, even though it is possible to request them at the reception.
The accomodation is located very far from any kind of public transportation, with no dining options nearby, except the hostel's restaurant, that serves good food.
All in all, I would only recommend the place to people with a tight budget, or to people who are not much concerned with comfort and cleanliness.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the main building, if they have it

The reception staff was not present, at the time we were leaveing noone was there, we had to do the check out by leaving the key into a box outside the office. They charged us an extra fee for the invoice we didn't ask them and for the later payment due to their lack.

A very good choice to stay in Lofoten. The owner and staff are just very nice people. The place and cabins are wonderful. Very typical cabins with a wonderful view and landscape.
A place to return and will definitely suggest it as a very good choice.

We rented their so-called honeymoon suite for our marriage weekend. It was disappointing in so many ways:
The inner glass on one of the windows were shattered and dangerous shatters of glass were sticking out!
The sliding door in the living room couldn't be closed. There was a 5 cm glitch and the wind blew straight in. A burglar wouldn't need to break in, he could just lift the provisional clasp, slide open the door and walk straight in!
The so-called firewood provided for the fireplace were cut pieces of used woodplanks. Some of them even had nails in them!!
Before arriving we got an SMS from the place, wishing us welcome and "PS! Have a look in the fridge". A very nice gesture, we thought. In the fridge we found a bottle of alcoholfree wine (which we had requested, so that's ok) and a small box of chocolate. Total worth probably less than 100 NOK. Not that impressive when we were supposed to pay 1995 NOK a night.
The bathroom with it's bathtub was filled with candle lights - which would've been nice except for the fact that all of them had already been lit before and some were almost "empty".
We got no breakfast in the morning, and we didn't receive any information regarding where we could get breakfast.

On the positive side we had a very nice view to the ocean and the beds were ok. We also had quite a lot of luggage since we brought our baby, and the personnel were kind enough to help us carry it.
