Very, very cheap for a very solid hostel. Clean bathrooms, reasonable dorm, nice common areas. Nothing really standout but just a really solid hostel especially for the price! Wow. Also, location is perfect!! Very close to train station, as well as some really fun bars, restaurants, the water/habor, fish market and tourist landmarks. Highly recommend for backpackers.

Has all the amenities you need. We were put in a huge room with 30 or more other people. Didn't feel terrible safe and the noise of so many people can be annoying. The bathroom nearby to the room was made more for mass quantity than a quality shower experience, yet somehow still a single toilet downstairs. I think the... More

People was polite, just the right amount, they treat you like clients, you are one but never happened to me in a hostel that , so cold. Beds are death itself, really thin matress , i felt the bed wood i had to exchange it the second night with another bed. Breakfast is pretty expensive (50 korones) and rooms are... More

I have to say I was very hesitant about this booking but afterwards I have no regrets! The YMCA is in a fantastic location, right in the centre of town. I stayed in a female only dorm with en-suite bathroom. The room and bathroom were clean. Although the kitchen is small, it does the job. The fridge is cleared out... More

We stayed for two nights in this hostel. It was a six bed dorm very clean, good bathroom and there was another small sink and hob ( with kettle) in the room. The wifi was good all over the hostel. You had to pay 50NOK for breakfast, but it was very good lots of variety. There is a good communal... More

Excellent hostel. Good wifi. 2 kitchens on the second floor. Sadly NO Washing Machine / laundromat which was a disappointment. Very close to the Bryggen and Floyen attractions. The restaurant next door gives a 10% discount to YMCA Guests and the food was superb.

I really love how the hostel is so strategically located. The only thing is, I wished that the bathrooms are equipped with the hooks so that we can hook our towels and clean clothes on it. Otherwise, it was a very enjoyable stay :)

I stayed here for 3 nights in a 4 bed (2 bunk beds) mixed dormitory with ensuite bathroom. The hostel is located right in city center and within 2 minute walk to the ferry dock and the old town. It is about 10-15 minute walk to the bus terminal but one can get there by tram. There is a minimart... More

For an asian, nothing is really cheap in norway, for the most part majority of Nordic countries are really expensive as the cost of living and quality of living are both high. We rented a 3 bedroom apartment beside the YMCA and it was HUGE. very comfortable and had all the amenities. There's a grocery nearby so its easy to... More

This hostel was cheap and conveniently located, but that's about it. Even felt expensive for the quality of the hostel. It was unclean, staff weren't very approachable and there was nowhere to securely store our belongings. We stayed in a 32 bed dorm - considering there are so many strangers all sleeping in one room we thought there should be... More
