Stayed here four times in 2014 so far, each time I've had few problems. Staff are helpful, facilities are quite clean, nice bright social room. Only complaint is the size of the kitchen, during the evenings it's often impossible to find any space to make a meal until everyone has cleared out. Great 4th floor terrace though!

The hostel has some facilities such as kitchen and wi-fi (although it wasn't working properly when I tried to connect it). The staff is very friendly and the rooms are clean and tidy. But the best feature of this place is the location: right in the center of the town and close to the main attractions of the city.

The rooms were fairly clean, the bed sheets had dried blood on them though. The location is fantastic but the 4 bed dorm I stayed in was incredibly cramped. I'd probably stay here again but only because theres no better options

This was a very suprising and disappointing experience. The hostel might be in an amazing spot but it does not make up for the low quality of everything else. I am an experienced traveller and have stayed at plenty of hostels all over the world - this was one of the worst ones: for the 12 bed(mixed) dorm, the showers... More

The best thing about Bergen is lack of hostel for bag-packers. Fortunately It was YMCA available in the City Center. The location is awesome. If you like the Fish you are welcome. Well cool breeze from the harbor, good connectivity, clean and sound proof from noise outside. Wifi-Works pretty fine. :-) Recommended.

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
