I stayed three nights in a four bed mixed gender dorm room. Two of the three nights I had the room to myself and the first night the other people were friendly and we got along well, so no complaints there. Two bunks and a basin in the room. Two complete bathrooms and two seperate loos in the hallway; I... More

My second visit to Svalbard and return to Gjesthus 102. The guesthouse is located about 20 minutes walk to the supermarket and museum. Nice room and comfortable beds on a 4 bed room for the 3 of us and shower rooms and toilets were always clean. Thankfully even being very busy the guest house was always quiet without any noise....

Beds are very cosy and the view was lovely yet paying for wifi was a bit of a downer. Showers/toilets were good and breakfast decent. Walk into town is nice yet bit annoying if doing it 4+ times a day. Did not get attacked by polar bears which is always good.

Despite confirming the dates of our stay on arrival, all belongings were removed from our room while we were out. No attempt was made to contact us prior to the above. Promises were made, and repeatedly broken. Communication between staff was poor. Reception staff were unhelpful, and not welcoming. The Guesthouse across the road (The Coal Miners Cabins) does better... More

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
