Staffs are amazing, really friendly and helpful. Location is a but off the city, around 20mins by bus but just under ulriken mountain. Its a bit costly tho to go and back from city. The only thing let me down was the staff said bfast open 6.30 on weekdays. But monday morning i c/o early and bfast open at 7.


Was impressed with the staff. Always helpful..and patient with this muddle head. If they did not know the answer, they would ask someone who did. May be an old duck, but really do appreciate it when the 'youngsters' put them selves out for me. Definitely recommend. Even other guests were friendly as well as helpful. Maybe some wont like it,but then 'mummy' is not around to pick up after them...so sd they have to do it themselves.


The best thing about the hostel is the location. The hostel is located next to the Mount Ulriken, which is an amazing place to hike. However the city of Bergen is 5 km's away. A bus stops close to the hostel but it is actually even nicer to walk over to the city.

The location of the hostel is not THAT ideal as there is only one bus running between downtown and the hostel. Nevertheless, the hostel itself is a very decent one. The room is spacious and there is a sofa and shelf to place all the luggage. Everything is rather clean and the staff is REALLY helpful. A few things that I think can be improved: wifi connection inside the room, small lockers in the room to place valuable stuff, providing free or cheaper linen package.


Honestly, this was one of my favorite places to stay throughout my travels. Location was perfect - had a great view of Bergen at night. Bus stop was right around the corner, and the entrance to one of the best hikes was right around the corner too. Grocery store right across the road; great kitchen. Cool lounge area to socialize. I will stay again when I come back. Do not listen to people who say it is too far from town - you are in Norway, hike to town or take the bus.
