Couldn't ask for more staff are willing to help and very kind. Right in the city location 1 min walk from rimi mart. Great kitchen facility which is essential considering high living cost in Norway. Wifi works great in every spot

Great location and hot showers. but like all things in Norway it is overpriced, especially when you consider the fact that linens aren't even included in that price.

很整潔的旅舍 強烈推薦 This hostel is great! somehow it's the best hostel I ever stayed. It is a little bit up the hill,it's a bit hard for those who carry large luggage. But the design of the hostel is good as it has warm design

Very nice location and community areas, definitely walkable distance from all of Bergen's highlights!

This was a good place to stay. Close to the train station and centre of town. I only spoke with reception once, when I checked in, and he was very helpful. The female dorm had a bathroom and locker room attached, which was good. First in, best dressed, with the beds. People were moving on all the time, so lower bunks became available. I would stay here again.

Perfect location for exploring the city. Close to hiking area, fish market and city center. Bunk beds are a bit squeaky and sensitive but the rooms are big. Great showers. Very helpful staff. Cool elevator.

This hostel was in a great location. The kitchen can sometimes get cramped and dirty but there were many guests while I stayed there. The views from the windows were great because Bergen is so beautiful. This was a nice hostel. I would stay there again.

It is a great hostel, affordable for average prices in Norway. Very good location, near all main spots in the city. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Cool and pleasant common areas and kitchen. The only shortcomings are that the hostel is sometimes overcrowded and there are not many toilets. Reception is not working 24 hours. All in all, good place, safe and convenient.

The hostel is well decorated and the lockers in my room were excellent. Only one washer and dryer. Kitchen and dining area good. Reception closes in the evening!! So if checking in late, or chance of delay arriving at hostel, inform reception well in advance, or you won't get a bed. Norway isn't as visitor/tourist friendly as other countries. They don't seem to care if you visit their beautiful country or not.

I stayed in this hostel for 3 nights. While its a central location, my min observations were 1. There are very few toilets compared to the number of guests. To use the toilets I had to walk like 50 metres in the middle of the night, it was at the very far end. 2. Staff, will you smile please? :) You looked like you were doing a day job but it would be nice if you were a little more friendly. Overall, decent hostel but can make improvements.

This hostel was great but doesn't have the same vibe as most hostels. The crowd seemed to be older. May have just been because of the city we were in. Bergen isn't a young hot spot. The rooms were clean but they were expensive (normal for everything in Norway).

My granddaughter and I had a room for two. It was tiny in the extreme. We could barely turn around. Large window, so good for fresh air. Shower had same hunk of hair in drain the two days we were there. Computer for guests was a nightmare to use. Location very good, a short walk to waterfront, just 5 minutes from train station, market, close by. Kitchen very narrow and long, hard to maneuver when two or more using it. Well stocked..
