We booked a private room for two. There is a big parking area at the hostel, so you can park your motorbike practically under your window. This was great advantage compared to the hotels in centre. The hostel also has laundry and a dryer. Good food, nice rooms, excellent service and all this for relatively cheap price. In the neighborhood... More

Nice common area. We didn't try to cook, but I agree with others the kitchen... More

I stayed at this hostel alone in a private room for 3 nights in mid July. The hostel is located on top of the city rather than in the center but this is not a problem because the bus runs every 20 mins to the center and it's location at the bottom of Ulriken means it is ideally located for... More

It must have been around 11 pm when we finally arrived at the Hostel. Staff was very helpful. I traveled with two of my friends by motorcycles and there was a parking lot in a front of the Hostel. This place was quite occupied but no wonder because place was really nice! All the common areas were nice and thought... More

I stayed 5 nights in this hostel, in a shared 4 beds female bedroom. Clean, large room, large lounges and dining room, large kitchen fully utilated. Very nice and helpfull staff. Good choice of continental breakfast. Tables outside, grill facilities, breathtaking views. 20 minutes by bus from the city center. Was a really good choice!

I stayed here with my 10yr old daughter, we had a wonderful stay, enjoying the views over Bergen, the games room with table tennis & table football and the free coffee! The staff were great and gave us really great travel advice…plus the showers are hot and powerful!!
