It’s a little far from other things but the hostel is a location in itself. Kayaks, sauna, a hut with a fireplace, two common areas, projector and movie screen, bathrooms are very nice and rooms as well. Everything is very aesthetic and lots of natural art to look at. A great place to meet friends. And there are enough busses to have a day trip to all other locations in Lofoten.

Good stay if you're on a budget, but other than that ... could've been better

This is Norway so prices are going to be expensive. Furu costs about half the price of a cheap hotel so is very good value. The staff are very friendly and the atmosphere is among the best I've known. Clientele range from 20 - 60 and solo to families. Great location away from the tourist hotshots of Svolvaer and Leknes, just a minute from a lake/fjord and the bus from Svolvaer to Leknes stops right outside. You can also rent bikes a d kayaks.
