    Very clean, very well located (although Bergen is pretty small so, I can’t think of a hostel that’s poorly located) about 200m from train station. Good restaurants and nightlife around, bar next to it is pretty nice too. It’s really the perfect place to stay while in Bergen; small, cozy and well located

    Nice hostel with friendly and kind staff. Nice location, it’s central. Walking distance to the train station, tram going airport, shopping malls and parks. You have to make your own bed just a typical hostel but linens are free. You need to pay for towel but we had our own so it was not a problem. It’s quite calm environment though it was full during our stay. Clean rooms, bathrooms and toilets. Good and clean kitchen and dining area.

    Cosy and comfortable hostel in a great location. The 10 bed female dorm was very spacious, and I liked that it had a large private bathroom, a full length mirror and a separate room with the lockers. The beds were comfortable and the staff were helpful. I would stay here again!

    Pros: excellent location, cheap. Cons: not totally clean, little atmosphere, horrible bedroom decor (I’m talking a wall covered with mean-looking owls in tiaras).

    Good location, very near train station and short walk to harbor, funicular and stores. Reception has limited hours so I had to wait more than two hours after arriving on overnight train from Oslo to deposit my luggage for storage until check-in time. Small but adequate equipped kitchen, a bit disorganized and very crowded in the evening. No social areas. My room had nice big lockable closets and window that opens, although noisy until the wee hours but may mot have been normal. I’d stay again.

    Good hostel. Clean. There weren’t many common areas to meet people other than the kitchen and one small place with a few couches. Had several families staying there so the vibe wasn’t very hostel-y, more like a hotel. The location is amazing, a 5 min walk for the train and ALL the cool spots in Bergen.
