Welcome to our hostel

Beach, mountain and city breaks are all possible in the city of Stavanger. So why not book your group into our central hostel to experience all three?

A 15 minute walk from the bustling centre of Stavanger, the modern hostel is directly associated with the Stavanger University Hospital. It has its own shop which sells most things – including hot and colds snacks – and is open 24 hours a day. It is also located near to both bus and train stations.

The city centre is mostly pedestrianised and is home to the Norwegian Petroleum Museum which reflects the fact that Stavanger has been Norway’s oil capital since black gold was discovered here in 1966. There are many street-side cafes and restaurants and an open-air vegetable market.

One of the main attractions to the area is the prime hiking that groups can enjoy. Groups typically visit places like Prekestolen (the Pulpit Rock), and Kjeragbolten. Prekestolen is a massive rock overhanging the fjord (604 meters below) and Kjeragbolten is a rock wedged in the cliff some 1,000 metres above the fjord. Both provide stupendous views.

Naturally in the winter, Stavanger is well placed for groups looking to find some snow, with the mountains nearby. There is a ski bus every day during the season which can take you from the city centre to the chairlifts at the Ski resorts at Hunnedalen.

If you want to stay near to the hostel there are some great walks in the vicinity with the hostel staff recommending a ramble around the Mosvannet Lake or the Våland gardens.

If you are planning a group’s trip to Stavanger, then why not ask about staying in our St Svithun hostel?
