We stayed here as it was a cost effective option for Flam but it is very budget. You have linen that you collect on check in at reception and the shower was falling off. But if you can get past that and think of the positives it is a real gem. It is a 300 year old farmhouse and although the floorboards are wonky it does add to it. The major downside is you literally hear every movement and it's not very well signposted that noise has to be kept down by 10.30pm and we had people up on the kitchen until midnight!! I could even hear the phone alerts in the room next to us and every turn they made in their beds. You feel like you have to be very quiet. Location is good with lots of car parking and about 10-15 min walk into the town. It's only 30 mins to walk to the brekke fossen viewpoint. Reception is probably 10 min walk away or a few mins in the car.

Flam is absolutely beautiful and the perfect location for this lovely relaxed hostel. We had a complimentary upgrade from bunks in the hostel to a private apartment and it was a wonderful place to stay. If travelling to Flam on the train I would highly recommend staying the night here rather than heading straight to gudvangen or bergen as its a beautiful and unique place to be.

It’s a short 15 minute walk from the train station which is also the port. Through amazing countryside. There seems to be a few different types of accommodation here. We were put into an old converted barn. We had a double room which the bed was big and comfy. There is a kitchen to cook food but make sure you bring it with you there’s not a lot to choose from in the whole of Flam itself The wooden staircase creaked noisily and constantly as people went up and down but it died down about 10.30 There is a waterfall behind the hostel with amazing views from the top if you can manage the climb The guy at reception was very nice very helpful. And you can buy coffees (very good ones) and pot noodles from him. Met some other travellers Awesome place.

This is hostel accommodation and not hotel or air bnb and converted from an old farmhouse. Having said that we found the accommodation quite acceptable. Check in is actually at the Brekke Gard apartments, which look like little white cabins and is just before the hostel (the red building). There you are given your bed linen, towels and a key to your room. The room we were in was very small and on the first floor, stairs are very steep. Bathrooms are shared. You can hear people move around on the wooden floors and although it was booked out, people observed the 10p noise rule and it became nice and quiet. Being able to open the window to the view and the waterfall at the back of the hostel was lovely and it was nice to be a bit removed from the crowded and touristy part of Flam. This was a lot better priced than the exorbitant hotel in town. We ordered a cab because of luggage and I’m not sure if there’s some sort of fued with Brekke Gard and the taxi company, but the driver was grumpy as hell. Said the Brekke Gard had their own shuttle service. Not true! Find mostly the taxi drivers in Norway are a brusque lot anyway.

I was a little worried by other reviews but as a family with two kids this was the best value of the limited options, and I was pleasantly surprised. We booked a family room and were put in a room upstairs in one of the white houses near reception, the room had four single beds and a basin. First, it is a hostel not a 5star hotel, it is about a 15min walk from town, and you can hear your neighbours and squeaky floors. If you are ok with that, then you'll probably love it like we did. Here's why... The setting is up the valley so its quiet and away from the very touristy port of Flåm. Kitchen was well equipped and spacious with lounges and dining table. Beds were very comfortable. Bathrooms were modern and excellent. The place is peaceful and has character.
