About us

You will find our reception in the apartment building, where you will also find our dinner room. We are focusing on great servicehosting and good experiences for both you and us

Vikingskipet Hostel was opened in 1993, and offered construction workers a place to stay while building the Viking Ship before the Olympic Games in 1994. Now, almost 30 years later, our main group of guests are still construction workers! We have a lot of different people visiting us, both elite athletes, pilgrims, guests on vacation and many more. After the Olympics in ’94, the place was run as a hostel without breakfast. That was until 1998, when Ole Røhnebæk and Ann Kristin Konradsen took over the business. In 2002, Geir Evensen joined in too! We have later refurbished a couple of the rooms and the apartments. Today, we are still running the hostel, in addition to starting the hotel with double rooms and apartments.
