Good place to stay in Bergen for anyone on a budget. Central location only 5' walk from the bus station, 2 supermarkets nearby and only a 10' walk to downtown Bergen. I stayed in a 4 bed dorm for 5 nights and it was all fine. The hostel was very quiet and it was easy to meet people in the... More

This hostel is pretty spot on - Clean, tidy, friendly, good location (close to the train station) and secure (lockers included), Great value for money. A friend managed to break her phone charger and I joked that if the kind receptionist lady could find us a pair of pliers I would drop a 5 star review on here. She tried... More

Great location - close to the train station and Bryggen. Rooms are clean and my room of 8 beds had plenty of space. No charge for lockers but no breakfast offered. Overall, completely satisfied with my visit. Definitely recommend if looking to stay in a hostel while visiting Bergen.

A decent enough priced place to stay when you are staying in Bergen if you are on a budget, the location is one of the better locations as it's walking distance to the bus/train station and city center. They have recently upgraded their hotel rooms and for Norway it's really quite good value, but they could improve some of the... More

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
