“Good place”
Reviewed October 29, 2013

We had just one night here and left on the south-bound hurtigruten at midnight next day.
The hostel was clean and pleasant, double room perfectly good with comfortable bed. Breakfast fine. I really like these continental breakfasts and the hostel's was good.
We also used the kitchen and produced two courses of grevad lax and beef stroganoff.

We had a private room which meant we had two sets of bunk beds and a bath. There was also a kitchen but a sign stated that the kitchens were no longer in service but we did have an electric kettle. We were traveling north from Bergen to Trodheim by boat, bus and train and only spent the one night. The beds were comfy, the room quite and the staff was friendly, it just seemed pricey for what we received. The Hostel is a about a ten minute walk from the Hurtigruten pier and only six or seven down to the bus. It is in a nice old building across from a park where you can walk to the top for some impressive views. Given the costs of other places in Alesund the hostel is not a bad choice for a night or two.

Old but welcoming building; spacious room with en suite; we appreciated the kitchen cooking facilities - eating out in Norway is expensive for English people. I disagree with a previous reviewer : breakfast was varied and plentiful and well organised. The hostel is extremely well situated to visit the town. You can also buy a packed lunch at a reasonable price. Staff very helpful.

Room Tip: Parking is free at the week-end up to 8 am on Monday.

Accommodation in Alesund is very expensive, hard to come by and practically impossible for groups or people travelling in awkward numbers. So, the solution is this Youth Hostel

Advantages
Located outside a park, leading to viewing platform
Room spacious and clean
Use of common room
Breakfast room atmospheric, featuring an interesting Jesus portrait to assist in your day’s moral guidance
Norwegian breakfast buffet is included, good choice and good quality. Packed lunch available for £6.00

Moans
Thin curtains in rooms – not great in the land of midnight sun. Swallow your pride and wear an eye mask.
Wifi doesn’t work.
Weird check in/out times.


Up to you
Bed linen is extra and you have to put it on yourself. Good for those who have their own and keeps the price down.
Rules strictly enforced – quiet at night but curfew is 00:30.
Guests are a mix of stereotypical backpacking ‘companions’ and young single/group
