The hostel is simple, but with a good location, it's neat the city center. Supermarket and information center are around there. And with everything we need: hot shower, kitchen and tour information. The staff is friendly and helpful. Ilulissat is really a beautiful place to visit.

The hostel was extremely dirty. For instance the toilets looked like they haven't been cleaned in a VERY long time. The doors could not be closed properly. The showers very filled with hair. The toilets could not flush properly. The whole place was just very worn-down and dirty. When you stay that at the hostel one also has to pay... More

The kitchen has an inch of mould growing on the floor. There was no dish soap and garbage cans were never emptied. For two of six nights there was no toilet paper. And the walls are covered with squashed mosquitoes. I am not particularly squeamish and have stayed in other Greenland locations, but this place turned my stomach. Centrally located... More

I stayed two nights in a single room. The location is good because it´s in the downtown are. I thought it was a bit overpriced compared to other hostels I stayed. The facilities are clean. The room is okay. I guess there was a miscommunication with the office. I thought they would provide me a linen bed and a towel... More

Reasonably priced accommodation seems in short supply in Ilulissat, and this place compared badly to the hostel in Sisimiut. It is more than double the price, for much worse facilities. As it's a prefab building, it is noisy, with every footfall and conversation from the corridor heard in the room. Kitchens are ok, reasonably equipped, although there was no kettle,... More

This is a great option for some budget accommodation in Ilulissat. Conveniently located close to the centre of town, clean and cosy rooms. All the rooms are small twin rooms which is great - no large noisy dorms. Its no luxurious but its warm and friendly. The staff were very helpful, we got a free lift with World of Greenland... More
