Nice and relax place with big kitchen. Laundry is at another building beside. There is a cafe just at the entrance of the camp but we didn't visit it. We stay in their ensuite room. The bunker bed had a larger bed below but not a queen. Room is not big but good cosy enough. Toilet is like a airplane...

I'm probably just showing my age & ignorance but whenever I thought of youth hostels, I thought of shared bathrooms, smelly mattresses and noisy neighbours partying until the early hours - that would have been fine once, but now in my 30's and having a weekend away without the toddler in tow, it's not something I'd normally book! However, I...

The hostel location is very scenic - nestled between mountains. Its very convenient and comfortable and would definitely recommend it to anyone. We had a private room which was comfortable and a good size- though i am not a great fan of bunk beds. Staff are helpful.

This place is just awesome. 5 minutes walk from the Flam station and surrounded with spectacular views of the fjords and norwegian countryside. We were here for only one night but it was memorable. We booked a 4 bedroom dorm in the hostel. The rooms was very clean. Same goes for the bathroom. The bunk bed was the sturdiest we...

Stayed here for a night on the way from Oslo to Bergen. The Flam hostel is easily the most scenic hostel property I have seen till date as it is surrounded by magnificent Fjord's. Super market, restaurant and railway station is all in 5 min walk. The hostel itself is very nearly maintained with en-suite bathroom and a large kitchen....

Bari, Italy

Very beautiful and extremely clean cottages near the harbour and the railway; bathrooms (shared) absolutely clean and staff very kind and helpful. There's the possibility to cook inside the cottages and to use the big common kitchen. Prices good for Fläm, just the coins for the shower are too expensive.

An attractive place to pitch your tent, with good facilities (although we had to queue for the showers). But it was quite noisy at times, with machinery, traffic, building work not far away, and huge ships announcing their arrival. I think we were unlucky as on our first morning we were woken at 7.45 by someone cutting the grass. Also...
