A common question is what kinds of clothing is needed when visiting Tromsø. The simplest advice we can give is to cover areas of your body that are exposed to cold. Here is a list of clothes you should bring in the Aurora season (September to April) :
Hat that covers your ears
water/snow proof shoes that go over your ancles
A wind proof jacket/Down jacket
Remember that it is always better to bring to much than too little. We do our best to keep the rooms sufficiently heated. The temperature of Tromsø city does not often go far under zero, but in the areas around the city (Close to the Swedish/Finnish border – mountain roads etc) the temperatures can get down to the minus teens or twenties.
During the summer temperatures normally stay between 10 and 20. Remember to bring a sleeping mask due to the midnight sun.
We do not have parking spots at the Hostel. However parking is available for free in our street on the following times:
Free from 17.00 to 23.00 (or until next morning at 8 am during summer)

During summer parking is free from 15.00 on Saturday until 08.00 on Monday
Parking is also available inside a tunnel in the island of Tromsø, and is recommended to keep your car free from snow and ice during the winter months. The prices in the tunnel are around 300 NOK per day.

Early check in will in most cases not be available. This is because we need time to get your room ready for you. However you are free to come in and wait in our common areas.

If you would like to leave your luggage and have a look around the city, you can do so in the hallway of the blue house, below the stairs. Any luggage left in other areas may be removed by our cleaner/receptionist.
We do not allow late check outs, but you are free to use shower, kitchen and wi-fi after check out. You can leave your luggage in the hallway of the blue house and walk around the city/relax in the common areas if your plane/ship leaves in the evening or afternoon.
