"ガイランゲル周辺のお値打ちな宿泊先としてとても貴重な場所。ピークシーズンの直後に滞在したので、ユースホステルの良い面ばかり感じました。 清潔、親切なスタッフ、フレンドリーな客層など。"

Liked: It did offer cheaper accommodation to budget travellers, and it was in a stunning natural environment. They offer a nice breakfest and the modern end of the hostel is much better (one of the older members of staff did upgrade us when he heard how we were being treated).

Disliked: Some hostels are run with a lot of enthusiasm almost as a family affair, this one was extremely run down and I had the feeling that most people didnt really care about their job. The main person I dealt with was from Latvia and was very rude and unhelpful. Correspondence took ages, weeks, and then the information about transport to the hostel when it arrived was wrong. I asked for a room facing the fjord and even though we were staying 3 nights the first night we slept in an extremely small room at the back with the option to move the next day (but having to wait around for hours for rooms to be ready). The common kitchen is extremely dirty and neglected and unpleasant to be in. The wireless was pretty bad also.

Liked: Room was clean, very quiet location and great views from the top of the hill. Good breakfast.

Disliked: They need to offer better directions from the bus stop to the hostel. The bus did not stop near the hostel as advertised, but at the center of town, where there were no directions on how to get to the hostel.

Liked: Really good place to set-up base while exploring Geiranjer and the other fjords. The staff were extremely friendly - i was hiking near the mountain and fell in some muddy slush - the staff member was really nice by allowing me to use the staff washing machine (Hellysylt is a village, no laundromats there). Breakfast buffet is actually a buffet, food fit for a king (albeit a norwegian king). Very good place to stay

Liked: Beautiful location on the top of a hill overlooking the fjord. Tranquillity and the feeling of 'being far away from home' (dépaysement)

Disliked: The hostel is a wooden construction. You can easily overhear the conversations of the people who are sleeping in the room next to yours. But... wood is a very common material in Norway.

Liked: The room is clean, common bathroom is clean also (just far from room upstairs). Great to include breakfast.

Disliked: The bus driver didnt drop us off at the closest bus stop. Its the stop immediately after the hellesylt station. Its a steep hill to walk up. We only knew the hostel was up the hill because of a helpful passenger on the bus, otherwise we had no clue!

Liked: The location was fantastic, the view from our bedroom window was just amazing! A free breakfast in Norway was very good as food in this country is very expensive! The price looks expensive at first, but the location combined with the free breakfast makes it good value. I would stay here again.

Disliked: The girl on reception didn't know anything, how to get to a location, what there was to do in the area, even take payment or give us our room key, literally anything. The older man (maybe owner) was helpful though.

27 August 2010 Willem would recommend this property

Liked: Except for a steep hill to climb a good place after you come off from the ferry from Geiranger. They are in a process of renovating, so the room we slept in was very clean, but not totally done with. Electrical fixings and some place to hang stuff not there yet, but clean which is very important for us. Good breakfast.

Disliked: A bus tour group also stayed over and the organization in getting your food and returning dirty dishes caused congestion. This can be rearranged to make it easier especially since they accommodate big groups as a result of the ferry drop off.
