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.

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.

Great that you can leave luggage there for the day. Staff at reception be like "Leave me alone, what you asking me something for" ;p

A good hostel right in the centre of the city. Kitchen reasonably well equipped (when people clean it!), we stayed in 6bed room with ensuite, shower is a bit weird but ok. The hostel functions as homeless shelter at night... Admirable, but it would be good if they wrote it in the description, as after 9pm you find a bunch of these people in the common area and it makes it feel a bit weird and unhygienic at least... Still, a good hostel, we'd go back!

The directions that are given to you when you book are very confusing whereas the hostel is really easy to find. Go in front of the info desk, turn 360⁰ and walk to the statue on the opposite side, pass it, stop at the end of que square, look right and you will see the hostel. It is a really short distance whereas I walked for half an hour and rain in Bergen is not a joke. It seems that the hostel is almost always full on the week-ends. Be prepared to meet tons of people.
