The hostel was very clean with an inviting atmosphere. The kitchen to cook in was very clean as well. The location was very central to most forms of transportation, even the 2 km walk to the airport before a long flight. The breakfast buffet was delicious, as well as the breakfast room. Very price worthy too. The midnight sun could... More

Hostel is located in the building of the railway station. Rooms and bathrooms are clean and warm and the staff is friendly. Breakfast (buffet) is really delicious and large. Includes smoked salmon, eggs, bread, ham, cheese, something sweet, coffee, tea, etc. Hostel has a kitchen for guests and a room with a TV and a computer (with internet access).

Perfect if you arrive by train, as the hostel is in the train station. Bus station to the airport (2 stops) is just about 100m away. The ferry terminals are just a short walk away too. Expensive for a youth hostel, but the prices are normal for Norway. Short breakfast times (until 9 a.m. and 10 a.m. on weekends). If... More

Comming from Trondheim by train you can't find closer location to stay in Bodo than this: it's literally in station building! And no, you can't hear trains in the room - our window faced station and we couldn't hear anything. The best part is brakfast: it's really worth to et up at eight to try this!

Off the train at 9am and straight into the hostel. We were made welcome even though it was a long time to registration time. The receptionist let us dump our rucsacs and so we were able to get straight out to explore after making ourselves some breakfast in the excellent self catering kitchen. The included breakfast was excellent, much more... More

This hostel is literally in the top floor of the train station so if you arrive by train it cannot get any easier! When arriving for check in there was no one in the reception but a number to call was provided. Within a couple of minutes after ringing, someone arrived to check us in. The service was really friendly,... More

As hostels go this is a clean and efficient one. The manager is a friendly Czech with good English. As I was checking out early he made me a delicious packed brekky which I ate on the ferry to the Lofotens. Room was clean but noisy, right beside reception desk and busy road outside. Clean and plenty of hot water... More

This hostel (Norw. "vandrerhjem") is located in the two top floors of the Bodø railway station. The included breakfast is served in the station restaurant. OK food and enough of it. Boiled eggs a bit cold. Simple rooms but OK for sleeping. WiFi worked fine in our room. Restaurants 10 min. walk away. The Bodø vandrerhjem is fine for travellers... More

It was located just at the top floor of the Bodo Railway Station. A very good location if you come by train. It cost about 150 Nok for a taxi from the... More
