Travelled with family
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Best hostel we have ever stayed in! The staff are exceptionally friendly and helpful and the rooms and common areas are spacious and comfortable. There is a huge kitchen where you can prepare meals and store food in very large fridges. Absolutely every piece of kitchen equipment supplied, even staff who fill the dishwasher! The breakfast supplied is delicious and plentiful. Highly recommend!

Well located, friendly hostel
Very friendly staff, and our room was clean and as described. The location is lovely but not close to any restaurants so it's advisable to bring your own food to cook or eating before you arrive! There's a pizza takeaway place in Tau and some supermarkets. The breakfast was basic but good.

Fine rom, gode senger. Nydelig beliggenhet hvis man ønsker å bo utenfor by. Flotte uteområder. God frokost og kjempegod kaffe. Mitt overnattingssted neste gang man skal til prekestolen.

2/5 Poor

Liked: Cleanliness
Disliked: Room comfort
Misleading and overpriced
The surroundings are straight up gorgeus, but the place itself? This place is really a religious camp, but for six weeks a year a company rents the place to run it as a hotel. The problem? There’s nothing at the place itself; no restaurant, no bar, not anything and there’s nothing in walking distance neither. It could be okay if it weren’t for the price; the price for a room is just as high as the price at a normal hotel! So you basically payes full hotel-price without getting anything of a normal hotel-experience...
