Stayed here as part of a tour and found the place quite adequate. Rooms warm and comfortable. Shared bathrooms clean and functional. Shared kitchen and dining room reasonably supplied. Two minute walk from the airport made it very handy. The only gripe from me was the wifi. It was 30krone for 1/2 hour and 50krone for 1 hour. In theory... More

We stayed here teo nights and found it is ok. The hotel has only shared bathroom and room is small, a typical Greenlandic hotel. The location is quite convenient though, close to airport with a free wifi, post office being open at 1pm, two small shops, and supermarket. However the wifi at hotel is not free and you have to...

There is a small shop there (good stuff at reasonable prices) where you can also buy day trips and access to the internet. The kitchen is well equipped and clean (you have to bring everything - there was not even salt left there from others cooking). The lodge is a long wooden building and even if it is shared facilities,... More

About 75m from the airport, which also function as a bar, hotel, hairdresser and hangout venue for the 10-14 age group this hostel is on the periphery of Kangerlussuaq, the main area of residents being a 20-25min walk away round the end of the runway.

Right next to the tiniest international airport you are likely to see, this comfortable but very expensive hostel is pretty much the most convenient place to stay. There is a supermarket nearby, and a gift shop inside. There is an infrequent local bus that stops outside. Breakfast is served, the bathrooms are clean, there is a communal fridge, TV area,...
