Montana hostel is located about 15-20 minutes outside of Bergen by bus, but the area is nice and it is convenient for hiking up the hill behind the hostel. The hostel itself is huge -- it felt like a large dormitory with long hallways and multiple floors. With that said, it had very nice common areas - a large kitchen... More

We stayed here in an ensuite room which more than met our expectations, clean and functional but what really made this hostel was the breakfast. Their breakfasts are fresh, varied, interesting, everything you could wish for, constantly being topped up by an ever smiling, attentive staff They also offer free coffee and cake in the afternoons, together with pizza on...

This hostel was clean and comfortable. The atmosphere was very warm and welcoming and the staff was help. The kitchen was easy and fun to use. I'd recommend walking to the supermarket across the street and cooking up some of your meals. Also breakfast was great! The only issue was that it was a ways out of the city center,... More

My first idea was to stay here for 2 nights max. But due to circumstances I stayed here my whole trip. It is a lovely hostel with indeed an excellent view. Also the awesome hiking trail to Ulriken starts right outside of the door. Although due to a radiator problem wich caused alot of noise and kept me awake for... More

The hostel is above average with friendly staff, excellent kitchen and living areas. The hostel is a 10 minute bus journey from town which is simple to navigate. Clean with loads of parking and free internet. Bergen is a great place to visit

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
