Clean and quiet hostel. Amazing location and friendly staff! Had a great stay!

I spent 2 nights with my friend over there. The location was great, near everything, train, bus stations, shops, supermarkets. The hostel was very clean and quiet, as we had the bedroom just in front of the reception room, we were afraid by the supposed noise but not at all. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend this hostel and would come back.

Helpful and knowledgeable staff, very clean room, kitchen, toilets, shower rooms and other community areas and great location. All within a short walk from both bus and train stations and the old town of Bergen. Spacious storage facility.

Worth to live in. And there is even a computer to use!

Service of the staff was good. The hostel is not in the city centre, but it is also not far from it. The rooms were clean enough, but the matresses and pillows were not. The quality of the bed was poor. The hostel features nice facilities, such as a clean kitchen and dining room, washing machine, wifi, pc- and tv-corners. Better ventilation and time limitation of kitchen use may help to avoid cooking smells at 12pm entering the room. All in all a rational choice, but still rather expensive.

This is an excellent hostel and has the cleanest kitchen I've ever seen in a hostel! Bergen is a small city and the hostel is within 5 mins walking distance of most places in town. We had a private twin room and it was very clean and very quiet - it felt like a basic hotel more than a hostel. Absolutely brilliant stay and I wouldn't heat irate to recommend this hostel or Bergen to anyone!

Stayed here for 5 nights and was overall impressed. Very friendly staff which were always happy to help. Great showers. Good kitchen, even though the oven broke while we were there. Very central location, 5 minutes from the city centre and it had a supermarket just around the corner. Would highly recommend.

Amazing hostel with nice atmosphere and very easy going staff. Rooms are super nice and clean, location is absolutely the best! 5 minutes to the main train station and buses to the airport plus 5 minute walk from the centre. Shower was possibly the best I've seen in a hostel. Highly recommend it!!

Excellent central location with friendly staff. We arrived a day early and they had space for us so we were allowed to stay in the same room.

This hostel is in an excellent location in the center of Bergen. The room was quite small but not uncomfortable. The staff was very friendly. The reception hours were somewhat inconvenient. They are only open from 9:30 AM until 4:30 PM or something like that. But it wasn't a problem getting in because we were able to use a credit card as a room key. However, moving out this meant carrying our bags around all afternoon.

Location is great, good view to those houses on the mountain. The atmosphere is just ok, not many interactions with others.

We were in contact whilst already traveling with the staff who were really quick at responding & very helpful. We're happy to print out boarding passes too. Really well located in Bergen, the kitchen area wasn't huge, but well equipped & plenty of eating space. The room was great - out of season and we basically had the place to ourselves. Everything was very clean and fresh. Nicely decorated & had lots on local things to do. Will definitely be staying again!

Very nice hostel, clean and bright with a great kitchen. I was worried about getting in as I was arriving after hours and was told to swipe my way in with my credit card, but this worked just fine! The security is good, with large lockable lockers in the room and swipe card access. The hostel wasn't very full when I was there but I nevertheless chatted to several people. There is a supermarket nearby and the receptionist was very friendly and helpful. Late checkout (12) and option to leave bags.

Good location - close to train station and a 5 minute walk to cental area. Facilities were all clean and nice, but it took forever to get hot water (sometimes the showers never got warm). Front desk staff was friendly

Thanks for the great review! We're happy you enjoyed your stay with us. Unfortunately, one of the water heaters broke, and this is why we had problems with the hot water during Easter. However, this water heater has now been fixed, and everything is now ok. We are sorry that this happened though.
