I stayed in this hostel for 3 nights. While its a central location, my min observations were 1. There are very few toilets compared to the number of guests. To use the toilets I had to walk like 50 metres in the middle of the night, it was at the very far end. 2. Staff, will you smile please? :)... More

We stayed here for two nights on arrival in the Bergen arrival. Our room was exceptionally tiny. Otherwise, the shared bathroom facilities were clean, the living area good, the city within a short walk and the rate fair. Recommended when staying in Bergen on a budget (The elevator still works, although it looks to be a century old)

Located by walking distance from the city center, fish market and Bryggen. Guesthouse has rooms with or without own bathroom. It has kitchen, washing machine, computer and tv room. No breakfast served. The place is peaceful thus you can relax and sleep well. Book well in advance as Bergen is very popular tourist town.

Good value accommodation for a great location within Bergen. Located right by the bus, train and airport shuttle stations. You'll need to provide your own bedding or pay to rent some. My only criticism was that the beds had some hairs on the mattress / duvet. A quick hoover whilst the room was being cleaned would have resolved this.

I am not a backpacker so I find uneasy to stay in this hostel. Many people walk around or stay in sitting room. If you don't want to wait, please wake up early to use toilet, bathroom and kitchen. And I overlooked that it required extra 65 NOK per head for bed linens which I think it's not reasonable that... More

Bergen is located in one of the most beautiful places in the world. Such a town has hotels charging premium rates, but surprisingly few hostels with options for the backpacker. 'Marken Gjesthus' is THE place to stay, whether you're looking for a cheap room for the night or a family-friendly guesthouse. Situated two minutes from the train station and two... More

Bergen is a great city, and this place was pretty good. I got stuck in a 4 bed room with a really loud snorer, but thats not the hostel's fault (although i truly believe that anyone who snores should not stay in a shared room in hostels, because thats rude as hell, and hostels should ask the question up front...

It's difficult to find affordable options in Bergen. I stayed at the 10 bed dorm and was unsure about my choice, but in the end I was pleasantly surprised. The place is very clean, everyone was very helpful and the location is great.

Loved staying at this hostel. It was a great location, close to the train station. The reception staff were welcoming and helpful and the room (a 10 bed dorm) was clean, comfortable and felt safe. There were plenty of showers and toilets and all were clean and well looked after. Lockers in the room meant I was able to keep... More

Friendly staff and a cute elevator. But the WiFi signal sucked, hobbled by excessive dropped connections, frequent slow page loads and downloads that dragged on and on. This occurred at multiple websites and while I used several of my digital devices. It was so bad I all but stopped using MG’s so-called WiFi until I moved on to my next... More
