The rooms in this hostel were really clean and lovely and the staff were really friendly. The kitchen is really small and made cooking hard due to this and most of the pots were grubby ( a fault of the residents, not the hostel obvioulsy). The showers were also grubby but they were cleaned everyday, again this was due to... More

I stayed at Marken Gjestehus as accommodation in Bergen is very expensive and I couldn't afford a hotel. Overall I found the place to be very good. Great location in the heart of Bergen. I stayed in a male 4 bed room. They had lockers for each person and the lockers were large so you could easily fit the suitcases... More

I booked a triple room with the private bathroom. When arriving, I found it was originally a double room with an extra sofa bed. I don’t like sofa bed just because of my back pain . However they didn’t describe it clearly at all on their homepage. The room door was quite old and wasn’t opened easily. When I spread... More

This hostel was in a great location. The kitchen can sometimes get cramped and dirty but there were many guests while I stayed there. The views from the windows were great because Bergen is so beautiful. This was a nice hostel. I would stay there again.

This is one of the more affordable options and is good value with a great location and clean facilities. I stayed in both the dorm and private room. The private room is very comfortable. The dorm was fine, but there was only one socket, which made it difficult to charge phones, etc. The one bad thing was that the reception... More

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.
