Great location near harbour, trains, bus, cathedral and supermarket. We had a very small room only large enough for the bed and opposite the laundry, which was being used till late at night. Small kitchen, few utensils, no tea towels so impossible to really clean the kitchen. Staff very helpful. Not enough room in kitchen or dining area for the... More

Unfortunately I can't say anything good about Marken Guesthouse in Bergen. We had very bad experience staying there in the beginning of December. Firstly the room was not very clean, the rooms are very dusty, you can find really a lot of dust and dirt in such places like: on both sides of the bed, under the bed, in every... More

I really enjoyed my stay at the Marken Gjestehus. It is nicely located neat the harbor and the station. The service was good and the room comfortable. I stayed in a double room with en-suite bathroom but had access to the communal facilities like the kitchen. Please take note that linen is at an additional cost.

We stayed in the three person room with an ensuite and it was great value for money.....for Norway! I had checked the website so knew that sheets and towels would cost extra to hire but I think that they are changing this policy when you book a room rather than space in a dorm in 2015. Rooms were clean and... More

Staying at the Marken Gjestehus made my trip in Bergen just that much better. Located just a short walk from the train and bus station, it was just minutes more to the harbor and the downtown. I stayed in the 10-bed female dorm and was very impressed at the space available; even with ten beds it did not feel cramped,... More

Stayed at the Marken Gjestehus in Dec 2014 and could not have been happier. The staff were friendly (and spoke fluent English), the rooms clean and comfortable and the facilities all in perfect order. Located just a few mins walk from the waterfront, great cafes and restaurants, and good transport links to Mount Floyen (the Funicular) and other attractions. Really... More

This hostel was amazing compared to the bergen ymca. Marken was amazing, everyone was really friendly, the bathrooms were cleaned everyday, kitchen was well equipped and clean, the tv/lounge areas were great with good tv channels. There were plenty of bathrooms for everyone which is a bigplus in hostel style accomodations. The 4 bed dorm i stayed in was very... More

I stayed in the male dormitory twice during my trip to Bergen and had a very positive experience both times. It's been recently renovated and the décor is very modern. The dormitory is also quite spacious and has a substantial amount of natural light due to the three large windows, which also provide a scenic view of Mt. Fløyen and... More

I liked this hostel because it was about halfway between the stations (bus + rail) and the centre of town. It was set out of the way down a quiet street within walking distance of the bars, and the facilities were nice. You can check in late with a neat credit card swipe system on the door (very clever), and... More
