Property Description

Since opening in 1997, we have received great responses and feedback from our guests, saying that the accommodation we offer is excellent, modern and reasonably priced. 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.

Please note that towels are not included. Towels can be rented from us, or you can bring your own. Sleeping bags are not permitted.

IMPORTANT: The reception is open from 11.00am until 6.00pm (11.00 to 18.00).

Arrivals after hours is not a problem. However, this must be arranged directly with us in advance.

Reservations must be placed with a valid card which the property can charge in advance of your arrival for at least the cost of the first night for standard rate bookings, or the entire reservation for non-refundable bookings. In case the payment guarantee can not be verified to be valid for this purpose, your reservation may be cancelled at any time by the property. View House Rules

    Fantastic location, great place to stay in you are looking to explore Bergen. The staff were really helpful with my late check in and helped booking me a taxi to the airport. Highly recommend.

    Amazing location, 5 min walk from the station and a 10 min walk from the harbour area! Felt very secure, big lockers with keys supplied and the breakfast option at the hotel is great! Make sure you come to Bergen and stay here if you do, I’m sure I’ll be back!

    Clean and good located hostel. Staff for late check in available via phone at the reception and credit card was used as keycard which was pretty handy. Only slight negative point was that our room had its only windows directed into the inner court and that there was an exhaust air unit running the whole night. But thats non of the hostels business so overall a great stay.

    Eccentric building so difficult to adapt to a comfortable hostel. The main minus is other guests who don't respect space (mess in kitchen, loud speaker phone conversations set started right in front of us with no comment, lights left on, glaring at you for being there!), but staff do their very best to work around this. Great bedroom view, comfy bed, luxurious linen. Very convenient and secure walk up old stairway. Could do with replanning, especially bathrooms - create single gender washrooms.

    Of course with Corona it is different than usually. People are avoiding each other, so I can not say anything about atmosphere. Was really clean, good beds with huge lockers for backpacks etc and generally enough space in the rooms. Staff was really helpful on the phone, though I did not meet them in person

    The location was amazing, there were no towels and there wasn’t a lot of social stuff but it was an awesome home base for a solo trip to Bergen!

    The facility was ok. The staff was non-existent. We called the number and the young lady opened the front door remotely. However,we had problems with gaining entrance and the staff was not able to remotely open the door near the reception area. We rang the bell and a resident let us in. I am assuming that the lack of on-site staff was due to COVID-19. However, other places that we stayed on our trip had on-site staff.
