honestly, one of the best hostels I've been to. we were 2 in a four-bed room, with private shower and toilets, and it was very convenient. The roof terrasse was very nice with the 30 degrees weather we had. Best possible location. Kitchen with everything you need to cook. Good and affordable breakfastn with regards to Norway's prices. I highly recommand this hostel !

The lack of air-conditioning or fan nearly killed me as an asthmatic in the hot and humid weather. Provisions of these might want to be considered. Also for breakfast, PLEASE include fresh fruit, healthier options. Our group had travelled through other ares of western Norway (Odda, Voss) and those were in abundance at the Hostels there, especially Voss.

Hello, Thank you for your suggestions for breakfast and we will take this into consideration. Unfortunately, the temperatures were extreme while you visited Bergen, but this is highly unusual for here. We tried to accommodate as many people as possible with fans, but since it does not usually get anywhere near those temperatures, it is generally unnecessary.

Very overpriced stayed in a 6 bed dorm in Oslo for 50 Krone cheaper and here I had a 12-32 bed dorm range

Staff were all very helpful and told us of the best places to go in Bergen! Whilst the showers were functional, the sharing of shower cubicles was a little odd!

Security - no lockers in our room, had to rent ones that wouldn't fit a 75 L bag so we just kept it in our room Location - right in the middle, 20m from fish market Staff - nice enough, didn't ask them much Atmosphere - non existent. Didn't really run into anyone who wanted to socialize, no main things to meet other travelers or anything Cleanliness - decently cleaned Value - decent Facilities - nothing special to them, clean enough, Overall, just decent. worth it for location though.

The staff was wonderful. I would prefer a communal kitchen, but just happy to be able to cook there.

Since domitory rooms have between 16 to 32 beds, I think the hostel may needs to consider instal personal locker in the domitory rooms

I was pleasantly surprised by our stay in Bergen. The hostel is in a great location in the city center with the fish market and Bryggen only a few minutes away while the train station is only a 15 minute walk. Loved the terrace and the view and met a lot of great people while staying there. Would definitely recommend it.

Location is good, but just the dorm is a bit untidy and have some bad smell. But the common area is excellent to gather people there and meet friends there. Facilities are well provided, but just for kitchen, there is only one sink and 4-head stove seems to be not enoguh to cater a lot of people there. People required to wait for a long time to have stove to cook or to clean their stuff.

Best location if you're only in Bergen for a night or two. It's walking distance to the bus stops and harbor, which is nice because the city busses are quite expensive.

Friendly staff and the cheapest place to stay in Bergen. It's weird to see old people hostelling, but they stay here too. The location is great, being so near the harbor. The showers were annoying-- you have to press a knob every 20 seconds to re-engage the water flow. That was my only complaint about the facility itself. I recommend staying here when in Bergen.

Workers were great, helped my friend locate lost camera. Hostel overall was quite poor though. No lockers in room. Shabby kitchen. Shabby showers. Shabby bathrooms and located poorly. Try another place in Bergen.

Perfect location, nice staff and good room. Would for sure stay here again.

I think it's important to have a person at reception for longer hours during Pre-season as there are still plenty of people requiring assistance or check-in after usual hours.

Thank you for your feedback. We are open from 0700 until midnight from the end of May and we have a night porter after midnight. We are unable to stay open any later this.

Only a few toilets and showers and the showers are shared. Considering the price, it was not up to par.
