The hostel is top of town. So nice view and easy approaching to observation platform. But to go hostel you have to climb up small acclivity or some stairs. But I love their great breakfast and free self laundry service with my own cleanser.

This hostel was extremely comfortable and exactly what we needed on our night stay! My friend & I ended up with a four person room all to ourselves. This meant we had a bathroom, including a shower, all to ourselves as well! It was very clean and a great place to stay. It even included a buffet breakfast, which was better than some hotels I've stayed at. There was a kitchen in our room which wasn't working, but there was a community one downstairs which we never needed to use. Recommend!

good location, nice breakfast, we stayed in a very nice apartment with all the staffs that we needed which we didn't expect for. It's the best lodging that I never stayed. Highly recommended.

Incredibly great breakfast. Worth the money for that. Too many guys in the big dorm room though and with opening the windows it didn't smell great.

The staff was very helpful and gave good tips for visiting the town. Breakfast was excellent and beyond my expectations. I highly recommend this hostel to anyone who wants a good place to stay in Alesund.

Great breakfasts, nice big converted church building. The wifi was terrible, but I'm not sure if that was the hostel or the location. Good spot.

It was a pleasant stay in Ålesund hostel and it was incredibly near to the viewing point. Mind the slope up the hill as you heading towards the hostel as it is very steep and hard to walk up if you have a very heavy luggage bag with you. Staffs were very friendly and patience in explaining alternative tourist attraction out of Ålesund. All in all was good.

My stay was pleasant enough. The hostel atmosphere in Alesund is a bit tenuous. I believe this is the only hostel they have in Alesund, it also shared with individuals who are jobless and or homeless. They were all nice enough to hang out with, but it was clear, it wasn't a typical backpacker style of place. The common room where the internet signal is best closes at midnight and opens at 4pm.

Good location and good facilities with internet access and breakfast included. I like that they have information on the sights of Alesund and a map of the city. A bit annoying that the reception is shut for most of the day between 10am-4pm and quite expensive even for a big dorm room

Perfect location. Aalesund is a great town to visit so I recommend this hostel. Staff were accomodating with skeleton hours rather than saying you can't store your bag and the hours were fair given it was genuinely quiet in May (unlike some Bergen hostels which use the same low season excuse in May but are booked out and really stuff you round.) Price includes a great breakfast, linen, washer/dryer use so far better value than it seems. I found it hard to get good wifi strength anywhere.

The breakfast was fabulous.....and the lady organising it was friendly and super efficient. Rooms were good, unfortunately the head man was a bit brisk when we turned up late....through no fault of our own. Luckily is assistant, a delightful young lady, made up for him. Can thoroughly recommend Alesund Hostel Ciao Wendy
