It's very well located, only a 5 minute walk (a bit uphill) from the train station and close to all the main attractions in Bergen. Very nice views from the rooms too. We had a private room for two people. The room was small and there is no space to move around but it was quite cozy. You can open... More

3 min from the train station, Great view from the dinning área and from our room. Wifi is good, coffee at the machine is cheaper than at the supermarket. Bathrooms always clean. Kitchen is spacious enough, even though we didn't cook much. Great price for Bergen, but a little expensive for a shared wc room without breakfast.

The biggest advantages of choosing Marken Gjestehus over anything else are: 1. The location. Marken Gjestehus is only 5 minutes walking from Bergen train station. It takes only 10 minutes to walk up to the bus station from where you can get buses to the airport as well. Most of the attractions of Bergen - Bryggen, Floyen, Fish Market, Harbour... More

I was looking for reasonably priced hotel near Bergen train station (since I will take a train leaving before 8am) and found that there ain't any. I read the reviews of several hotels near the strand people are complaining that those 120 euro hotels are dated and tired so I decided to give this hostel a try (private room, not... More

I originally planned to stay here just a couple of nights but became ill so had to book in for longer. The lady at reception was extremely helpful in providing me with my own room. All the rooms are clean and bright. There's a kitchen area and lounge/dinning area which is nice to socialise. The hostel itself is easy to... More

While this was not the best hostel I have stayed in, however, the best part about it was the location, which is close to the Bergen railway station, as well as a 5 minute walk to the harbor. Overall this was an OK hostel, however, the lighting in the dormitory was dim and could have been better. Kitchen is well... More

We stayed for two nights in September. We took the train in from Oslo (well worth doing), and so were very glad that it was just 4 minutes around the corner. The little pedestrianised street that it's next to was lovely, with a nice look cafe and some good restaurants. The harbour is only another 10 minutes away. The hostel... More
