Alesund is old and run down, but cheap,. The girl on reception was very helpful and welcoming. The showers were hot, the kitchen was good, the best part was the breakfast - fabulous. I had an ealy bus and I was allowed to go in early and have breakfast. I stayed two night so that I could go to Geiranger fjord. When I got back to the hostel at 7:30pm the room to the dorm was wide open, not the secure door, the side glass door.


Nice and rich breakfast buffet but unfortunately only until 9am. Quiet central area, perfect room, well equipped kitchen.


What is good: very comfortable bed! location, very friendly staff, well-equipped kitchen But.... we hade a double room with bathroom on the first floor. Room was very small and dirty, floor was sticky, dirty, very dirty! , Bathroom was extremely small and dirty! There is no shelf at the room , no wardrobe, you have to keep your clothes in your luggage. Breakfast is just ok. I couldn't say it is really good.


kitchen in the cellar, without windows, you don´t want to cook there. a nive room to relax, but full with staff, you feel like to stay in a junkroom

Maybe it was because it was a hectic weekend and they weren't used to it, showers, bathroom and laundry room were a little untidy. Breakfast buffet was fine.


Overall in terms of location and facilitie, the hostel was great. However we found the staff to be quite rude


very convenient, and near to climb the mountain that can overview all city, worth to recommend
