Great location. About a 5 minute walk from the train/ bus station and also a 5 minute walk from the town centre. I did walk past the side turning where the hostel was a few times. I got the airport flyer bus from the airport to the central bus/train station in Bergen. It worked out about £13 return. Staff at... More

Norway is sooo expensive that you just have to look for a cheaper option and if all hostels were like this I wouldn't bother to stay in a hotel! We had a double room with ensuite and it was terrific. Funky decor and very clean and spacious. The staff were really friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Light and... More

Stayed one night in this guesthouse, firstly the staff is not so friendly and not even border to explain more, he just can't wait to rush back to his room, the guesthouse is so crowded where you can't even get a chance to cook, or just wait, dining area is too small and full all the time, we had 4...

Loved this hostel!!! Located less than a 10 mins walk from the central station and 5 mins walk to the harbor. The staff was very friendly and helpful with directions. I was in a 3 girl dorm and the room was very cozy. All bathrooms are shared and were clean most of the time. Staff did a good job at... More

Easy to walk to the water front, the train station and the major attractions. The guesthouse has all the facilities you need: free wifi, well equipped kitchen, dining room with beautiful view, comfortable sitting area, clean shower and restrooms and friendly front desk staff, and it has an elevator which is very helpful when you have luggage to pull.

I think there is one thing good about this hotel and that is the location..near the train station and city center...You must must pay for towels...shared bathrooms and toilets...shared kitchen, which was little bit small...our room was little dirty..you must make your own bed...but guy on the reception was very kind and help us with everything we wanted..

I loved staying here! Location is fabulous - a 5 minute walk to the harbour in one direction and a 2-3 minute walk to the train station in the other direction. Our room was lovely, bright, clean, large with an en suite bathroom with powerful shower and even a hairdryer. The bed was large and comfortable and the wi-fi was... More

I was a bit prejudiced when I booked this property. But later I found myself quite wrong. I stayed at Marken Gjestehus for 2 nights in economy twin room with shared bathroom. I arrived after 11pm on the day arrival and I highly recommend you to inform the property in case of late check-in as they close after 10.30 pm.... More

I was positively surprised with this hostel. Rooms are clean, its a small hostel but with good areas to chill or be with your laptop. Kitchen is pretty decent as well. Staff is nice and there are people cleaning all the time. Shared showers and toilets but there are not that many people around and people are very civilised. Families... More
