About Voss Hostel

Our story

Voss Hostel is a social and comfortable place to stay, perfect for the traveler who wants to spend his money on experiences while on holiday. All our rooms are ensuite and we have a guest kitchen for your use. The hostel is uniquely located right by the lake Vangsvatnet, connected to Voss town with a 1 km walkway along the lake. In winter Voss is a great destination for alpine and cross country skiing and in summer you can choose amongst hiking, biking, kayaking, skydiving, rafting, horseback riding and much more.

We are part of the organisation Norske Vandrerhjem (Hostelling International Norge) with about 50 other hostels in Norway. It is a certain experience to stay in a hostel. Not only because it costs less, but maybe because of the informal atmosphere and the people you meet. The guests come from all over the world. Some come alone, some with friends, and some with family. Some come for sports, some for leisure, some for work and some stop by when passing through. It’s like a colorful mosaic of cultures and purposes.

Meetings and conferences

We have two meeting rooms. The hall Hustru Åsa fits 60 persons and the smaller room Peter Bonde about 20 persons depending on set up. Our dining room overlooking the lake can also be used for workshops or gatherings outside breakfast hours. Projector, flip-over and wi-fi is standard equipment.

Organic farm Finnegarden

Voss Hostel lies on the premises of the farm Finnegarden, that grow organic herbs and vegetables. All the fruit and greens served at Voss hostel are organic and much if it origins from the farm.

Finnesloftet

The banqueting hall Finnesloftet, built in the 13th century, is a national monument and Norway’s oldest wooden non-ecclesiastical building. Finnesloftet is situated next to Finnegarden farm, approximately 10 minutes on foot from Voss hostel. During summer months, guiding and concerts are arranged on weekly basis.
