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!!

I stayed here just one night but it was very pleasant. The views are great and it is right next to the hiking trails up the mountain! The staff were very helpful and friendly and even made me a packed breakfast when I had to leave early in the morning. I almost missed my bus (my fault) but they ran... More

Very large hostel, staff were very helpful and friendly. Rooms were clean and tidy as were facilities. Breakfasts were very good, plenty to choose from. Views of Bergen were excellent. The only negative was the distance from the city centre. 20 minutes by bus.Would stay again though.

Staff were rude, unhelpful and didn't offer any local knowledge, apart from pointing us to the direction of their display of brochures. After travelling hours by train from Oslo, we were pretty annoyed that it took almost an hour to check us in. They wouldn't allow us to drop our bags anywhere secure either, so we couldn't shower and chill,... More

I stayed here with my partner in a dorm and her mother was in a private room. The first thing to note is the linen charge. While I don't like the fact that it's not included I can accept this in a dorm but for the price of a private room it should certainly be included but isn't! The staff... More

A friend and I stayed at this pleasant hostel for a two nights in September and were greeted by friendly service straight away. Whether just a seasonal coincidence or not, the hostel was quiet and was mostly hosting slightly older guests. Dorms were very standard, as were shower facilities and kitchen facilities. Breakfast and general service was great. In terms... More

This is a high quality hostel suitable for both backpackers and families. The bedrooms are furnished to a high standard with comfortable wooden beds (no squeaking), a table, sofa and sink. There is also a large common area consisting of 2 lounges and a kitchen dining area. The only thing letting it down is location. While great if you want... More

We arrived into Bergen in June without lodging arrangements. The city was busy and the other options available were far outside of our price-range. We were disappointed with the quality of the accommodations for the price. We had a double room with an en-suite bathroom. Linens and towels are extra. The rooms are very small and basic, with bunk beds,... More
