    The place is really good. I would have wanted to join the activities conducted by the volunteers if not for the conflicts with the conference that I attended.

    The staff were really nice here, and given that Norway is generally an expensive country, I was really grateful that this hostel provided a breakfast, and you can pay for a cheap, but actually quite nice dinner, there was the pizza option or the lasagne option for the short time I was there. I really enjoyed my stay, they even had a guitar and a piano you could use to play if you wanted to! Great time and really grateful for this hostel in Bergen!

    This is what hostels are meant to be!! Had the greatest time hanging out with people over coffee, dinner, or shared activities. Included breakfast blew away my expectations. Loved everyone’s company. Only improvement could be the gym, but it does have a few things.

    Great hostel with very friendly and helpful staff. I was only there for one night but the atmosphere looked good with a few different things to do. Beds were a little bit uncomfortable and location was a little bit out of the way however there was a bus stop nearby (we had a car). Would definitely stay again when next in Bergen.

    Great hostel on one of the mountains around Bergen with easy access to lots of hikes. 30-minute bus to city centre with bus stop 2 minutes away from the hostel so very convenient. Very clean. Social atmosphere and easy to meet other travellers, especially because the volunteers organize hikes, game nights, and other outings!

    What really stood out to me about this hostel was the friendly welcoming volunteers that hosted 'cookies and coffee' mini event each day at 5.30pm (then a pub quiz later on) and the hiking trips – it meant that solo travellers like me got to meet others and feel a sense of 'community'. There was also a great mix of ages there too. I would say though that the linen was nice but I got lucky with a good pillow in my room, the other pillows on the other bunks were terrible flat and worn out!

    Lots of common space and activities! Definitely great culture for meeting people. Free breakfast with a great view. The wifi doesn’t work so well, and the location is pretty far out from the city. You have to pay for linens, which they don’t include in your room rate. Rooms and showers were very clean.

    The hostel is a comfortable place. It is far from the city center, therefore close to the hiking trail leading up to mount Ulriken. The hostel staff is friendly, but busy. They organise daily trips and afternoon breaks. The offer at breakfast is good, the kitchen facilities quite alright. Unfortunately, you have to pay extra for bed sheets.
