I have nothing but love for this place. Helped me out when a hostel I had planned on staying in was no longer in business. The front desk staff have been very helpful in answering questions and giving me information about the area and how to get around. Heated bathroom floors, wonderful views, and a great location (close to coffee shops, restaurants, a nice walk along the harbor, etc.)
P.S awesome internet and the continental breakfast is wonderful.

We drove from Narvik and bikes, climbed (a little) and are about to head a little further out. The weather has now turned back to where it is supposed to be. Closer to 50s and 60s, I think ...
... positive anomaly" relative to latitude of any country in the world. In other words it's warmer than you would think (but unless you are very **********'t pack your togs). It also means that the fish love it so the happy Norwegian folk have been fishing here for at least 1000 years. Some of the things we loved about the Lofotens: . Arriving on the express boat from Bodo, being entranced by walls of granite shooting out of the sea. . Staying in Rorbuers - converted ...
... and anxiety with which earlier occupants had entered this cheerless room was expressed in the palimpsest of graffiti carved with ballpoint pens into each table. And, my God, it was cold. Icebreaker's layering system was tested to sublime Arctic perfection. I can't say, the system was found wanting, as we could not sit still long enough to allow it to be tested in repose. Up until that time, we'd had a fairly sedentary day. Hurtigruten's Stamsund terminal took care of that. We ...
