Spent one night here with a colleague. It was off-season and therefore we got a nice rorbu at a competitive price. Dinner cooked by the very friendly owner: excellent halibut in a very nice personally decorated dining room! Would definitely come back! Great for hiking Ballstadheia.I thought the room was great - but taste is different. I was painted, simple with two small separate beds, but extremely cozy and individualistic. Definitely not your average hotel - note: the room uesed to be a simple fishermans cabin!

We were hosted in Rorbu n°12, room 2: a perfect nest for plenty of bedbugs that ruined our stay in Ballstad and the end of our holidays (and possibly our own apartments... only the future will tell). Maybe others have been there and will be luckier than us. But if we were you, we would not play the lottery.

We found this booking last minute; otherwise we wouldn't have taken it. The rooms are very colourful I will give them that from bright pink to turquoise blue. The standard of breakfast and restrooms are adequate for passers by and hikers. I wouldn't say it will suit the majority of tourists.

We arrived late in the night in the middle of a blizzard and had prearranged a late check in only to be left out in the snow in the dark cold. Had difficulty getting in contact with the owners and later found out they don't often check their bookings. Was originally left in a small cabin we were under the assumption we would have cooking facilities but it was pretty basic a bed and shower nothing else not even towels and a tiny heater that did not work it was awful.

Later complained and shifted to a bigger cabin with cooking facilities and things got better. Would stay in a bigger cabin if we were to go again from there it was not too bad. Simple but comfortable.

It is a real fishing port so be prepared for the smell of fish it is very strong but would not put us off for this reason.

Only wifi reception in the lodge which is open from April not March.

Kræmmervika Rorbuer - Havets Helter is by far the worst place I have ever stayed.
If we have had the money to it we would pay the neighbor Rorbu for a room to stay, but we where on a budget ..
The beds was full of yellow and brown stains, I am very happy that we had our sleeping bags with us!
The bathroom was so bad that we did not use at all, only brushed our teethes in there.
We ended up be sitting at the restaurant located at the neighbors until they starting to give us "the look", after this we sat outside until it was dark in order to not be inside this place. I do NOT recommend this at all! If you have a tent, use this instead.

Room Tip: The beds was full of yellow and brown stains, I am very happy that we had our sleeping bags with us!
