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.
