Kremmervika Rorbuer
Reviewed 25 July 2015

It's simple but very cozy to stay in a rorbu as the one Kraemmervika Rorbuer offers. The only thing I would have wanted is wifi in the hut, but that was only available at the reception which is located 10 minutes walk away.
Breakfast was great. Lots to choose from. Friendly staff!
The location was marvellous and nice terrain to hike in. Not so far to the Town of Lekn es if you wanted to do some shopping.
I can recommend this place with all my heart.

Room Tip: Try to get a rorbu on the waterline.

I spent one night in the hostel in front of reception. This was the dirtiest place I have ever had to sleep. The bed was full of yellow stains and really uncomfortable. I had to place the blanket between the bed and my bed linen. The bathroom was dirty, with pieces of paper with rests of excrements below the toilet. The bed covers must be cleaned at least once in the life of the hostel. The only good think of this place is the bar at reception.

I actually expected a 10-bed dorm, but it turned out to be a traditional Rorbu(fisherman's cabin), which was a nice surprise. I arrived after 21:00, when I called them it wasn't a problem and they made sure I would get the key and the bed linnen. The rooms are a bit light though due to the midnight sun, but this was the only downside of the hostel. The staff is really friendly and helpful and the scenery around it is just amazing. It might be too basic for people who want a lot, but for backpackers or low-budget travellers it is a great place to stay!

Great location to explore Lofoten Islands. The bar is one hell of a good time and the price is VERY reasonable. Accommodations are sparse to a degree, but in this area that's to be expected . I would go back.

The price, compared to norwegian standards, is low. However, there's some things one has to know before booking. We reserved one double room (as advertised on the website), but were accomodated in a cabin located some 400 meters from the reception. Annoying if you drive, difficult if you walk.
The cabin was dirty. Really dirty, like it had not been cleaned for several weeks. No proper beds in the cabin. You are supposed to sleep on a wooden plateau covered with a layer of foam rubber. Unsafe step-ladder to get to the plateau.
Towels and bedlinen not included, even though it is possible to request them at the reception.
The accomodation is located very far from any kind of public transportation, with no dining options nearby, except the hostel's restaurant, that serves good food.
All in all, I would only recommend the place to people with a tight budget, or to people who are not much concerned with comfort and cleanliness.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the main building, if they have it
