    It is situated in a good locations, close to most of the tourist attractions. The reception staff were very helpful and they even give you some recommendations on places to visit or eat at. The rooms were clean and quite comfy, but quite worn-down. The shower here is like those taps that you need to press it to get water to come through. Bit annoying since I have to press it several times when I shower, but still ok I guess.

    Great location and good price for Norway. The kitchen was nice but small. I originally booked for the 32 person dorm but was put in a much smaller dorm, so that was nice. The main complaint I have is that there was only one female shower...

    Towels are an extra fee which was a surprise. The major con was there are no lockers in the rooms. There are lockers to borrow in the main lobby that are free but require a 200 KR cash deposit. Location can't be beat though and the facilities were clean. The restaurant right beside it is excellent and good value.

    Ok Hostel. Great location, spotlessly clean it must be said. However the rooms and kitchen are extremely small. There is very no storage space for luggage in the room and very little space for food in the kitchen. Very few charge points in the room. The staff were very helpful when required, but had little interaction with guests after check-in. It's an old building that could do with some modernisation, but overall an ok place to stay while there. Bergen is a beautiful place - don't miss it!

    Does the job. No atmosphere beyond dorm. The dorm area itself feels like it used to a hospital lol.

    The hostel itself is fine. But they won’t provide lockers in the room or make it clear that the lockers that are available are free to rent. This led to everyone simply putting their stuff in the dorms. One man had almost half his stuff stolen while he was out for an hour or so. Security had to come and we searched the hostel (at 2:30 in the morning) for his stuff. On a separate note: they do not provide shampoo, body wash, or a towel. It’s in a great location and it’s relatively inexpensive

    YMCA Bergen is a relatively clean place to spend a night if arriving late or départing soon but it totally lacks atmosphere compared to hostels worldwide. And of course it s pretty expensive, even for a bed on a dorm, but as everywhere in Norway.
