We wish to maintain these essential factors, and to continue giving our guests the same up-to-date accommodation at the same low price. We have renovated and redecorated the whole hostel in 2014. In 2017 we expanded and added 3 brand new rooms and in 2019 we renovated a few more rooms.

    I had a really nice stay here. The hostel was clean and in a good location (really close to the train station, Bergen Harbor, supermarkets, and coffee shops). The staff was nice and helpful.

    Such a clean, warm, and cozy hostel! I loved that the insuite bathroom and locker area were in a seperate room connected to the dorm area so we didn't wake each other up when going through our bags. Located right in the center of town and easy to walk to all the attractions. Checking in after hours was easy just email them in advance.

    This hostel was a pleasant surprise. It was very close to the train and to all the attractions. Perfect location for a break on a budget. We stayed in the 10-bed, female room. It was clean, the bathroom was great, lockers were good and the room was a comfortable temperature. The atmosphere was great, no real disturbances and everyone was respectful and friendly. The major asset to this stay was the fully equipped kitchen, which saved us a lot of money because Norway can be expensive.

    Massive place with many rooms. The common areas a bit small but loved how there was a bathroom like an ensuite. Kitchen facilities are a bit dated and difficult to see the staff as the reception hours are quite limited. Very good security and easy checking in. Location is fab as well close to the centre and train station. For our room, people went to bed really early so didnt really get to mingle which would have been nice but nonetheless I would stay again!

    Central location, very near supermarkets, train station and cafes. Check in requires your credit card( the one you registered with the Guesthouse) to swipe through the card reader. Walkable distance to Bryggen and fish market. Floor in my room was quite dusty. Microwave in my room is greasy and can be cleaner. Staff is pleasant and can communicate well.

    I only stayed for one night in a single room. Great location and central location in Bergen. Had a kitchen to cook meals and decent dining area. Reception only during the day. I enjoyed my stay and would stay again!

    Good facilities and pretty handy location. The receptionist was super helpful with all my questions about things to do in Bergen. Highly recommend the Funicular, fjord tour and gingerbread town! The only downside to this hostel is there is absolutely zero atmosphere so not ideal as a solo traveler.
