we were desperate for some place to eat after having driven on Norway roads in the rain and with all the scandavians on holiday with their motor homes...what an incredible lunch we had here. I can't speak to the hotel accommodations but the food was superior!

Never stayed in this type of accommodation it looked a little lost without snow. Small but comfortable room and excellent breakfast. Stairs to accommodation very steep so be careful. Wifi seems limited to public spaces.

Dear Chris Thank you for taking your time to write on Tripadvisor. We appreciate customers feedback. We are happy that you had a good stay, and glad that you found our breakfast excellent. Hope to see you back another time - maybe in winter, so that you can see Fjellstoga covered in snow :) Best Regards, Team Fjellstoga

We arrived to this hostel not expecting much but where pleasantly surprised to discover a hidden Gem and after 4 days of hiking we returned to the same warm and welcoming hostel which we had left. The hut room was very nice and had everything we needed to make are stay as comfortable as possible.

Stopped here on a short tour through the mountains of central Norway. We stayed in a hostel style room which was basic but very comfortable. A buffet breakfast was provided and was excellent - even a gas stove with eggs and ham which one could cook oneself. The surrounding area is very scenic and we wished we had more time...

This is not an ordinary youth hostel or vandrerhjem as you would expect. It is more than that. We've got the 'Kongerommet' (King's room) including a bathroom. The beds were comfortable so we slept well. The free WiFi was fast. In another room you can watch television or a dvd. Our host, Roy, gave us the feeling that we were...

We rented a beautiful self-contained house for 10 over the Christmas period from Roy and Ann-Torill at the Fjellstoga. The house was equipped with everything we could possibly need for a large family gathering, including a well-stocked fridge (at our request) and a selection of board games. All of the rooms were clean, comfortable and lovingly decorated. The Fjellstoga was...

I stayed in a room at Hovden Fjellstoge, not a cabin. It's located a couple of kilometers outside the centre of Hovden and the room was average and contained what you need - not much more. No TV for instance (situated in a common room). No problem for me as meeting people is a better option. The service was really...

I have been visiting Hovden Fjellstoge twice the last six months, and I enjoyed every minute. This time I stayed in a cabin with some of my friends. We went downhill skiing during the day, and in the afternoon we also went crosscountry skiing. I really appreciate that we could put on the skis right outside the cabin and just...

I Just came back from a stay at Hovden Fjellstoge, and it was a really good experience. It is reasonably priced, and we got so much more than what we payed for. We stayed in a cabin, and it was clean and well equipped. The staff was always smiling and willing to help. The food was good!
