Sjoa Hostel is scenically situated in tranquil surroundings between the rivers Sjoa and Gudbrandsdalslagen. Sjoa Hostel is originally a farm from the 1200s, but we offer accommodation and facilities of a good standard, whether you choose family cabins or 2, 3 or 4 bed room in the new department. All our rooms and apartments have private bathrooms. Buffet breakfast and other meals are served in the main building from 1747, where the open fireplace and log walls provide a very special atmosphere. In addition Sjoa Hostel offers good and varied activities for young and old, including rafting, canyoning, river boarding, rope activities, mountain riding and musk safari. From us you have an excellent starting point for hikes in the mountains, with short distance to the national parks Rondane, Jotunheimen and Dovrefjell. River Sjoa is also suitable for fishing with rod and fishing is free at the hostel grounds. Welcome to Sjoa Hostel.

We stayed here because the white water rafting trip leaves from there and it was convenient. It's grounds are pretty but the rooms are kind of like dorm rooms. Not a big deal. They're clean. The guy running the place was very nice as well.
