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

We stayed in Bergen Montana Hostel for two nights in August of 2014. We had a private room which included a bathroom. We paid NOK $1700 for those nights, which works out to about $130 per night in US dollars. Given Norway's exorbitant prices, that was a pretty good rate. This is what I liked about the Bergen Montana Hostel:... More

Great place to stay! most rooms are 4 bed dorms, plenty of space to move around! Free breakfast too, not too keen on the fishy foods, but the rest of it is all top notch! Communal showers but that's all good! Great common rooms and cooking facilities to feed yourself and with a supermarket just down the road, it's easy... More

The hostel is located on mountain, which can be reached easily by bus and a small walk. The air is refreshing there and the environment is quiet and peaceful. The hostels is big and includes quite many facilities and space, for example canteen and playroom. [[[My Recommendation]]] DO NOT MISS the beautiful sunset of Bergen, where you can see from... More

I enjoyed my stay at the Montana Family & Youth Hostel. The place wasn't too hard to find from their directions, and the view on the bus ride from the city center to the hostel is very nice! The beds are very simple but clean and were to my liking. There is also a full kitchen and big common area... More

Whilst I have seen complaints on here about the Youth Hostel at Montana in Bergen, I can say that I have no complaints whatsoever (other than the patchy weather & that can hardly be blamed on the hostel!) . It is located slightly out of town, but it is a straightforward 20 minute journey from the centre of town, and... More

We stay in a Basic double room (not bunked). Big car-parking. Nice Breakfast with some typical food. Common areas are really basic. Nice living-room. Poor WiFi. Not toomuch friendly reception. Small breakfast area for toomuch people.

Simple , clean and cheap accomodation in Bergen. Owncatering, walking distance to town, quiet and friendly. A youth hostel, but I have been there twice with kids and once with full family and i suits us fine, you will not be indoors anyway in Bergen ;)
