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.

    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.

    I would come back. I had good people in my dorm, no snoring, attitudes nor towel fiddling. No Frokost tbough, although place has facilties, there is nothing available nearby although was told so. 🚿 Rubbish. I used the public swimming pool. Nasty single dual gender use units in a corridor. Very comfy bed.

    In a really good location close to everything. Nothing to really complain about, not much of a social vibe but everything else was good.

    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.

    This would have been a wonderful stay in a wonderful Hostel if it had not been for the staffs unacceptable response to the fire alarm going off every other hour throughout the night. When we called the emergency number they refused to take responsibility and told us they would call the alarm company in the morning. However, this only happened on our last night and the first two were very enjoyable. The hostel is pretty with comfortable communal spaces in a great location in Bergen.

    Room was clean but in need of decoration-very tatty You have to put your own sheets on the bed & remove them afterwards.Mixed reactions from staff-one very helpful - others abrupt&unfriendly.The lounge area is 3 very small sofas crammed into a corner.The kitchen was filthy on one occasion & you cant cook if there are more than 2 ppl in there-not enough space-everything is at great height so very dangerous when lifting off the surfaces Not all heaters working in main area or in my room-overpriced
