This is a really good hostel for the price and location! We didn't realise until the next day how in the centre of Bergen we really were! Extremely pleased, especially if you want to go out at night and don't want to walk too far to the bars! (as we found out since it rained the first day we arrived!)... More

Every time I visit Bergen I choose to sleep at this great hostel. It has everything a backpacker could want: good prices, friendly staff, amazing location, cozy common area and clean rooms. It is just perfect!

The rooms are pretty tiny, and the front desk is only open from 8:30-3:30 or something like that, so you have to let yourself in via a key in the lockbox if you check in at any other time. Also, I checked out before 8:30am so I never saw the front desk. I also had a weirdo try and pick... More

I was in a 6 person dorm. The room was miniscule - there was barely enough room for everyone's luggage. I liked the en suite bathroom which was very clean. Although the kitchenette was convenient, the others staying in my room ignored the "Do not make full meals in the room" sign and were frying chicken wings when I arrived.... More

Location WAS perfect, in the centre of it all! But what was even better was the price and facilities. Bergen IS quite expensive, but here you can get a good quality rest and cook up a storm in the kitchen ( I loved the kitchen! ). Great stay.. Helpful and well-informed staff, good facilities and a heartbeat away from everything.... More

Location can't be better. Appreciated the safe arrangements for my late arrival (as reception closes kinda early, not 24hr for sure). You need your programmed card to enter everything, the lounge, floors etc. i paid for a dorm but was placed in a 6-person room. Room-mates were nice.

I went to Bergen the first time in summer for taking part in Bergenfest and was looking for somewhere to stay which was near to the festival at Bergenhus Festning. Bergen YMCA hostel was indeed the best choice, not only the location, value for money, but also cleanliness. I stayed in the dorm and got the bed near the toilet.... More

As part of a Scout excursion to Norway following a Jamboree in Stavanger, we traveled to Bergen, and chose to stay at this hostel. As soon as departing the High Speed Ferry that brought us to Bergen from Stavanger, our group set off toward the hostel. I was dreading the walk, as I was carrying a 17 kg rucksack on... More
