I loved this hostel! I would recommend it to anyone. The location was perfect. Right by the fish market, close to hiking trails and a grocery store etc. the staff was nice and very helpful. Definitely stay here!
Toilet/showers inside and outside the rooms, excellent location. Just perfect!
Hostel is in a great location, but rooms were pretty crammed. Not much space to move around and such, but facilities were all clean.
I had a very pleasant stay here with my friend and would try and stay there again if I return to Bergen. It is located very centrally and the shared kitchen and large dining room enabled us to meet lots of interesting people. The dorm room was very nicely done and it was clean and tidy. I really did have a great time!
Staff had good communication over email before my arrival around 11pm. Once I was at the hostel however I found the staff a little reluctant to help with questions I had. Nothing major though, they just didn't seem interested which can be dissapointing for a traveller excited to be in a new city.
It was great, was nice to come back to a warm bed after spending a few nights in a hammock on a mountain, but overall I really enjoyed my stay and will be returning next year when we will concur the troll tongue

Good location in the Bergen town, we thought that the breakfast is included but not. It would be better to include also breakfast
It was a descent hostel...the bedding was a little old. My bunk bed was tiny and in the smallest corner...it was kind of awkward. I guess the location made up for any inconveniences, it was at the heart of the city.
The hostel was clean and well equipped but lacked a sense of community and atmosphere for the price. The desk staff were not as friendly as they usually are at hostels but that could also just be a cultural difference. Overall it was a good stay in a good location, just a bit pricey.
It was so hard to did plugs to charge a phone or camera and even in a 18 mixed from there was only a plug to charge. Showers were in the lower ground so have to go up and down to take shower.
