I stayed at Guesthouse 102 at the beginning of June. The staff were helpful and the room was basic, but ok and clean. The distance from the town is a fair 20 minute walk. I'm not sure what it'd be like if the weather had been bad, awful probably!

The place is a bit far from town, but the walk is nice and refreshing. Not very far from Huset if you up for party. Rooms are not bad, service is really good. I prefer this place over some of the more expensive places in town and the money saved could pay for a taxi once in a while.

This is a comfortable hostel. It is very basic but clean. The toilets and showers are in the hall but they are clean and convenient. There was a sink in the room. Breakfast was generous and more than adequate. It is the farthest accommodation from the center so be prepared to walk. You can always order a taxi. The staff... More

Stayed one night here. This is more a hostel than a hotel. Facilities in the hallway (with Gary Larson polar bear cartoons). In the (very clean) room there's a faucet to brush teeth and wash face. There's a living room and a breakfast room. Breakfast is simple but good, as is everything here. Very friendly staff. Pay extra if you... More

Stayed two nights. Located about 2 kilometers from Longyearbyen itself, take this into consideration. Clean, quiet and comfortable guesthouse. They are licensed so you can buy alcoholic beverages on site, as well as other items. Cheap by Svalbard standards. Reception staff is helpful and friendly, and the airport shuttle bus stops right outside the door. Wifi costs extra. It's a... More

Okay, this is nothing fancy and the beds are indeed to soft, but the place is spotlessly clean, the breakfast is good and there is a good kitchen for cooking your own food. There is no 24-hour service at the reception but you can always call someone who's responsible by phone, and they'll be there shortly. The staff is very... More

My husband and I booked two beds in their 4 bed dorm and loved the experience. The guesthouse is very clean, kitchen is well equipped to cook and the bathrooms are very hygienic and clean. With a backdrop of the Sarkofagen (which is a lovely hike), this place is a bit remote from the centre of the city, but given... More

Basic but clean, and very friendly and helpful staff. Nice atmosphere. Takes about 25 minutes to stroll into "town" which is nice if you like somewhere a bit more secluded (although it is very close to the excellent art gallery). Not so good if you want to be close to the supermarket (which by the way has everything so don't... More

Norway is itself costly, and Svalbard is costlier than mainland. I have booked this hotel for 3 nights and later came to know that I need a 2 or multiple entry Schengen Visa. I had singly entry visa, so I was trying to cancel my trip, including flight and hotel. I had sent a mail to Gjesthouse, and Sanna talked... More
