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.

atmosphere heavy, lazy staff, lack of security, lack of cleanliness


Off work too early


The hostel has good facilities, but anyone can come in because there is almost no security (just a 4-digits number easy to obtain). The reception was opening late and closing early, and I was not well advised there. Maybe this is just the wrong season for staying in Bergen. I was really disappointed regarding cleanliness. The kitchen is cleaned up every day, but it's a dirty mess after a few hours only. I recommend the staff to remove the dishwasher and ask people to clean up and be respectful
