Nice. As for me, everything was perfect. Simple, but cozy. Quite a good repair, non-turbulent atmosphere. The price is OK too.. . . I had some affairs for a week, but it was pleasant to me. Comfortably and quietly

Guesthouse 102 is a great place. I stayed there for 4 nights and if I get back to Svalbard -alone, with family or with friends- for sure I will return there. if you are searching for a place that is beautiful, clean, nice and cheap, you have to go, but beside that, the best thing of it, it´s the people...

Everything was perfectly clean. Nice to have a kitchen for free use. Enough bathrooms at both floors. Easy walk to town (20min) the uphill back people talk about is easy and will not take any longer than in to town. There is no cheaper place in Longyearbyen,so for this area the price and service are reasonable. I would stay again.

Simple standard. Quite old. Basically only a bed and a wash bassin in the room. Toilet and showers in the hallway. Breakfast consist of bread and some cheese and salami. Nothing fancy about it. Cool fact that tgis used to be the home of the miners. Price is quite low.

The Ice Warrior team headed by Jm McNeil has used this guesthouse for many years and always found it a great place to stay. It is now under new management. The whole place is being renovated and re-energised. Great place to start your arctic experience Summer or Winter. Don't forget 24 hour nights and 24 hour day seasons too. Enjoy.... More

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
