En god overnatting til fornuftig pris
Et hyggelig sted med vennlig personale og god frokost (til en fornuftig pris/tillegg). Ikke veldig støyisolert, så man hører folk på gangen/badet hele natten. God plassering mellom Leknes og Henningsvær, nært veien og med gode parkeringsforhold (fikk lade elbil på vanlig støpsel). Husk at dette er et hostel, så man skal ha litt lavere forventning enn for et hotell - men det var veldig koselig. Hovedsakelig yngre personer som tok inn her. Bildene var rommene på nettsiden er ikke helt riktig, vi fikk et mindre rom enn forventet (litt trangt).
