    I was thrilled with this hostel. The location is phenomenal. Bergen is a fantastic city with everything very close to the hostel. The price is very affordable. I found the hostel to be safe and secure and clean. The staff I interacted with were wonderful and able to answer any question you might have. I also was traveling with my senior citizen mother and she found it to be excellent as well. Thank you.

    Really nice place with relaxed atmosphere. Clientele is almost exclusively other travellers, did not see any of the (oftentimes weird) long-term residents some other hostels have. Facilities were great and very clean, as were the rooms. The location is perfect, you get literally everywhere in 5 mins. Only reason for complaint may be the minimalistic reception hours, as late arrivals must have reliable internet connection and their credit card available to access the self check-in procedure.

    A great hostel in the heart of Bergen. The staff was really friendly even though I checked in in the last minutes of opening time. My room had a big window and was really clean. Only downsides are missing lockers and there could be more electrical sockets. Opening time of the reception is short but there is a security guard patrolling also inside the building at night times.

    Overall its a nice hostel. Dorms are pretty small however. There is a nice common room with couches and tables and also a rooftop. Location is superb. Special thanks to the portuguese staff at reception :)

    The location and the cost are the best things about this hostel. The rooms weren't comfortable, despite there being ensuite bathroom. They didn't provide towels and the reception is closed on weekends. There are no lockers and they advertised a guest kitchen but it didn't seem to exist (or was locked up). The vibe was just kinda depressing, which was important to me as a solo traveller but this place is fine for groups looking for a cheap place to crash in a good location.

    Fantastic location. Generally friendly staff. Main issue was that in the dorm rooms you cannot plug your phone/camera/valuable in to charge near your bed - theres only one plug by the door, so I hardly slept as everytime I heard movement I would wake up to check my phone...

    Be aware that the reception in this hostel is only open until 3pm! So it's very inconvenient in terms of getting support or leaving your bags there during the day. The self-check-in is ok, but I know myself and a few others had problems and then there is no-one there to ask! The security company that you are told to contact don't know anything about the bookings themselves so can only help you with technical issues. So all in all, it's a place to sleep but next time I would stay somewhere else

    There was no breakfast in the morning like there was supposed to be and the reception is not open 24/7. The roof top is only open 5 hours a day. The only thing that I enjoyed about this hostel is the location and the kitchen which is well equipped.
