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..

We enjoyed our stay at the guest house. Your awards are deserved. With so many guests, and with the guest house also using the washing machine, it would be helpful to have a second machine and to provide clear instructions for its use.

Very convenient location. Not the cheapest but that is just Norway in general. Fully equipped kitchen will help save money and the wifi is good for booking onward journeys.

The ratio toilets, showers/people is the best in all the hostels I've been. However, our room was excesivelly small.

A very nice hostel. Very clean rooms with good lockers. Toilets and showers spotlessly clean. Good seating and dining room area and decent kitchen. Great staff! Good coffee machine - very cheap but quality coffee. Good wifi but the one available pc is hopeless. Very good hostel!

The positive things about Marken Gjestehus are that it is quite centrally located and that the staff are very friendly and helpful when it comes to recommendations and tips about the region. But depending on which room you get, it can be quite noisy in the evenings/mornings due to traffic.

One of my favorite hostels that I've stayed in. Very nice facilities, rooms are bigger than usual and each person had a full sized shelving unit that locks. Bathrooms and showers were always well stocked and very clean and never had a problem getting right in. Very nice kitchen and eating area. Not the greatest hostel for meeting new people (might have just been the few days I was there) but I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here.

I wish I could have stayed here longer than one night! The whole place is really bright and clean and in such a good location. Literally around the corner from the train station and walking distance from the tourist information centre
