This hostel has a splendid location in the centre of Kabelvåg. The rooms are small, but clean. The kitchen was well-equipped, and the bathroom and WC was clean and had good capacity. It was some noise from the other rooms. It’s free parking in front of the hostel. I recommend this hostel as a budget hostel in Lofoten.

What a wonderful place and a great way to use the space that would otherwise stand empty! Proceeds (at least in part) go to the school. You can also see the students' artwork on the walls.

We had two plain one-bed rooms and the use of common bathrooms and showers. Everything was super clean, sheets and towels white and crisp. It was quiet - the majority of the guests are of quite mature age (an American here upon hearing the word "hostel" envisions teenagers and penniless college students). Let me put it this way: the vast majority of the guests had greying hair

Breakfast is included, and was tasty and plentiful.

We were upgraded from room to an apartment which was spacious, clean and comfortable. Bed a bit small but couch could be used as a bed. Mitch had enough equipment for you to cook if needed. Bathroom large.

Staying in a "Rorbua" (old fishermen cabin) is the best way to make you feel as local people. That' s what we did at Kabelvåg.
Since it is located a bit away from the reception, we were provided with a map which led us near the port the house is facing to.
The two-bed room is tiny but it has a large window and a sink to wash hands; the booking included shared shower and wc and there also was a common kitchen spacious enough to allow guests having their meals.
Outside there' s a nice varanda which we didn't unfortunately take the advantage of as it was too cold.
However we won't forget that village as we've been offered with amazing northern lights appearing in all directions!
We would suggest you to access Lofoten cathedral, an occre wooden building, by walking through the village and its surroundings.
Please do not miss Lofotr Akvariet (Lofoten Aquarium), a complex close to the sea which architecture is inspired on fishermen houses. It is a very informative and lively place where you will see the main Artic species. If you are lucky, you can even watch otters and seals being fed and playing in two separate ponds.

We were just staying for a night. Despite we were arriving a bit late they were reachable and made our check in easy.
It is a very clean and quiet place, good located to see Northern Lights. There is a supermarket just 5 minutes walking that closes at 23:00.
Very close to Svolvær and Henningsvær.
We had our own car and parked directly under the house with no problem.
If you have big luggage maybe you cannot fit it into the room but some other guests had their suitcase at the corridor.
There was a good ambience in the house because of other travellers.
Very good price and enviroment and fast internet :D
