How people have rated this hostel as good is beyond me. This two storey building used to be a hotel, but now functions as a hostel and clearly hasn’t had a kroner spent on it in years. From the minute you open the main door, the smell of damp is overwhelming, caused by one of the showers flooding out and soaking the carpet in one of the corridors (the water actually leaks through the floor to the lower storey where it is collected in buckets!!). The rooms are small with bunks which are comfortable enough. No duvet is provided so you have to use a sleeping bag. They each have a handbasin which has no running water, so the only place to wash is one of two dark and poorly appointed shower rooms with hideous brown tiles. At least the water is hot. One has a sauna attached that does not seem to have been used for some time. The kitchen area is poor with no cooker or microwave, just a small grill, no place to prepare food except the dining table and at full capacity it would be impossible to cook here. In fact we were advised by the lovely man who runs the tourist centre to move to alternative accommodation when a large group of Spaniards arrived. There wasn’t even a pot of salt or pepper in the kitchen and the fridge was absolutely disgusting, foul smelling with mould and biofilm growing inside. The lounge area with two sofas and a table, looks out over the harbour but the small balcony is not used as it is patently unsafe with crumbling balustrades and broken tiled floor. There is a TV with limited Greenlandic and Danish channels only. This establishment is obviously mainly used by trekkers, pack-rafters and climbers who spend days in the wilderness, yet there is no washing machine here (or indeed a public one in the whole of Nanortalik), and no sink in which to wash your dirty clothing (except the one in the kitchen!) which is a surprising oversight given that the downstairs half of the building is empty. I understand that this hostel has been recently bought by a Spanish company who intend to invest in major improvements. Boy does this place need it!…
Abbiamo soggiornato in questo ostello per due notti la scorsa settimana.. Il posto è nella media con gli altri ostelli della zona. Molto comoda la cucina e molto attrezzata. Comodo anche il supermercato vciinissimo!
So pleased to arrive at the Hostel after a number of days roughing it in the Greenland Wilderness. Hot running water & a comfortable bunk (way more comfortable than my camping mat). Great restaurant located a 10 minute walk away in Nanortarlik where we had the best Roast Lamb I have ever eaten. A gazillion times tastier than the dried seal from the fish monger.
We were with a group when we stayed at this hostel (it's name is Hotel Tupilak but it is a hostel) Rooms were two bedded (bunk beds but comfortable). Showers were hot (each in it's own small room). There was a good sized kitchen/dining area with sufficient cooking equipment. The owner, who can be found at the Tourist Information Office, is very pleasant and helpful.
