    Great location in Bergen! Very secure and late check-in was easy (I arrived after midnight). Not the most social vibe - seemed like most people kept to themselves. There also wasn’t a central common area. It was a great base camp for my trip in and out of Bergen and I’d definitely stay here again.

    A great place to stay and so clean! I stayed two different nights and both nights, the bathrooms were clean and facilities were well equipped. Late check-ins were also really easy. Staff were super friendly. It was my first time staying in a hostel and it really set the bar high.

    We arrived on a late train and the late check in worked very well. More plugins in the rooms would be quite helpful. Having an elevator was wonderful. Highly recommend Marken Gjestehus.

    Great hostel, super clean and friendly. Only thing is as other reviews say it’s quiet. Not really a place that promotes meeting other travelers, no music, bar, etc.

    Fabulous

    27 Sep 2019
    The building is very old but the cleaning staff is always busy and it is pretty much spotless. Other than the kitchen/dining area, common area is pretty much useless as it sports a few couches in a tiny corner with a tv...not ideal for meeting.

    Too many people for the place. There is just one common area. All the rooms share some bathrooms and showers. Very good location. Is a place just to sleep and leave.
