Nice location on hillside overlooking the city. Close to city bus with frequent service. Very comprehensive breakfast buffet (but nothing hot other than toast). You can get a pizza in the evening and there are good kitchen and laundry facilities (charges for washer/dryer). Rooms are small but very clean and quite adequate and range from dormitory to double en suite... More

We had a wonderful time staying here. Myself and my wife stayed here for 4 nights. Slightly far off from the city center but bus service is pretty good and frequent - almost every 20-30 mins. You must take a snapshot of the time table displayed at the bus stop since timetables available online might differ. We had the bergen... More

I had a generally positive experience at Montana. You have to provide your own linen and use your own towel... standard hostel knowledge. The breakfast they provide is fairly good, but it gets PACKED with eastern European tourists. The staff is very friendly and helpful.

My wife and I stayed here on our last night in Norway and were generally disappointed. The room was probably clean enough, but was so dated that it felt dirty. No obvious issues in the room of course. The basement kitchen was a wreck (filthy) and we had issues with the washing machines while there. The upstairs kitchen was very... More

We stayed here for 2 nights, not consecutive. We arrived in Bergen on June 27th after our Norway in nutshell trip, and had to rush to the airport to pick up our car as the rental closes by 5pm. We drove back to this lovely hostel which has ample free parking and is set at the foot of the picturesque... More

This is a place to sleep. It's near some great hiking trails, but quite far from the city center, which is not ideal if you want to go out at night. I saw a lot of bad reviews for this hostel and the biggest problem for me was the other guests. The people staying here didn't clean up after themselves... More

Montana is in every way a discount place to stay, but if you just need a bed on your voyage through Norway, this is a good place to stay. It´s located on the mountain side, close to hiking paths and the cable car to Mount Ulriken. Rooms are clean but very simple, with no luxeries. Breakfast is low class: toast... More

Friendly Hostel with great staff, well run and conducive to meeting other travellers. Reasonable breakfast. Clean. Good areas for hanging out, and good kitchen. Only drawback is that it is a bit out of town and you need to catch 15 minute bus to get there (bus12-35NOK-covered by Bergen Card) but on the plus side its quiet with no trams... More

I absolutely love Montana hostel, it's just so well suited for travelers. Yes, the location is not in the city center - it takes 20-25 minutes to get there by bus, or 40 minutes walking. But I like that it's right at the bottom of Ulriken mountain, where many hiking trails start. Everything around is green and beautiful, and great... More

This is a budget accommodation, far away from the city centre but with public bus transportation to get there. So you will get a simple accommodation, where you can make a base to your fyords trip. Bergen is a nice city to visit. On the day of departure, as we were leaving early they gave us a pack of take... More
