There are a few reasons why I bumped this rating up to 3 stars vs 2. Mainly the staff are really nice, the hostel is in a good location, and they have kayaks to rent. Kayaking is a must here! Other than those things, this hostel is really run down and the facility itself is a little creepy. Strange decor...

Great view but thats where it ended. Greeted with a toilet that wasn't flushed properly, pictures of double room booked was not what we were given we ended up with a room with two single beds and a set of bunk beds when we then told it was an old photo and were then shown a standard room which was...

Our first impression was terrible. Dark grey wooden "shoeboxes", reminding of workmen barracs. Small and shabby and in our opinion far to overpriced (~70€ for a double room in that condition). BUT: we slept really well in comfi soft beds, the shower was hot and the breakfast the best we had in Norway (we travelled on a budget and mostly...

I was wary from the low reviews, but this hostel was fine for us. We booked a double room with private bath. Room is small and minimal but clean. Fjord view from balcony is spectacular. Good options at breakfast. Room not well soundproofed but there were only a few others here. A little pricey for a hostel but there aren't...

很棒的經驗、但浴室內沒熱水只好能水槽來瓢水用。不過隔天有請人來修理效率算是不錯的!另外浴室地板是溫熱的很棒、沒有吹風機吹乾頭髮很傷腦筋~ 地點就剛好下巴士站往前走到橋,過了橋的右邊就看到了Grand Hotel The staff was friendly and very helpful when I asked somethings about the timetable by transportation.she was running the day to connect the bus then asked my opinions, good girl! Good memories and experience

This is the worst hostel I've ever been to. It was FILTHY. And smelly. Staff were not very friendly. It was hard to find. The only good thing was the view. Which is good but then basically anywhere you stay along the fjord will have that so stay anywhere else!

Please don't go this hostel. This is the worst place I've ever stayed. First, this place is really dirty. Both inside the room and outside the room, there are trashes and hairs. And it smells really bad. Second, this place is very old and small. It does not worth paying the amount of money they request. Finally, the location sucks....

Frankly speaking, I was a bit hesitant when booking this hostel. The reviews weren't so good but in the end I have no choice because I have to stay at hellesylt for a night. To my surprise, it's not that bad as i expected. Showers were hot and strong which is enough for me. There weren't that many hostelers there...

This is the worst hostel I have ever seen, there is old stuff and garbage laying arround everywhere. 3 old unused fridges in the corridors. The main building looked and feeled like abandonned years ago (when obvioously also happened the last cleaning). Wireless Internet didn´t work and nobody seemed to care about.

I have seen many hostels in my lifetime, and in some way, I was looking forward to staying in one again, after a few years. However, this one was a disappointment. Two girls' and two guys' bathrooms for all the guests. A water boiler that didn't work. Wifi only in the corridor. Tiny little beds (I actually woke up because...
