Pros: I stayed with a friend and my son and friend (both 15 years old) on our first hiking trip to Norway. The accommodation was clean and comfortable and exceptional value for money, particularly in such an expensive country. We went with the intention to hike to Trolltunga and the location was perfect.
Cons: Towels and linen are extra, but we took our own and was not a problem
