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

Though Bergen is a beautiful place to visit, the problem is that it is terribly expensive, almost twice the cost of other places in Europe. The only option is the Bergen YMCA, which provides very affordable (by Norwegian standards) accomodaton. Located right in the heart of Bergen, it is also right beside the Airport Bus stop. Extremely convenient and highly... More

First, you can't beat the location and price. Bergen is an expensive city, this is a cheap accommodation, and you get what you pay for. We stayed in a 6 bedded private room and had the entire room reserved. First, the "fridge in the room" promised did not work. We could never figure out why. There is a communal fridge... More

Four of us stayed in the hostel very near the waterfront. The hostel actually starts on the second floor of the building but there is an elevator available. The desk staff are very friendly and helpful and also speak English. The room was small but very clean and we had our own bathroom and shower. There is a kitchen available... More

YMCA Bergen Hostel has it all.....!! Great location, nice staff, comfy beds and is a well organised business. For a very small amount per night in the dormitories. Absolutely recommendable. Will soon come again :-)
