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

This is as close to backpacker accommodation as you're going to find in Longyearbyen. It's also as cheap as you're going to find. Or in our case the only accommodation still available, which was fine. It's a little out of the main drag, maybe a couple of k's and the accommodation is quite basic, but it's got everything you need.... More

Hotels are quite expensive in Longyearbyen, but this hostel like guest house is actually a good and cheap alternative. The rooms are very basic, and toilets and showers are placed along the hallway. There is a continental breakfast included and it is quite nice, a bit like what you would eat for breakfast at home. Everything is clean, and the... More

Basic, clean and excellent value. A perfect base for Svalbard. Yes, it is on the edge of town. However as Longyearbyen is very quiet the 35min walk was a much appreciated distraction. I'm not the fittest of people and managed the slope back to the hotel quite easily at a slow and steady pace. Even with a ridiculous amount of... More

A really great value for Longyearbyen. Clean rooms and bathrooms, breakfast included and the location is nice too as it is away from all the other hotels and shopping centre. The staff are super friendly and helpful. I will certainly stay here on my next adventure to Svalbard.

Given the relatively small choice this is the best value accommodation in longyearbyen after camping. The airport bus starts and stops between guesthouse 102 and spitsbergen hotel, so finding and getting to the hotel is easy. Walking to and from longyearbyen might be a problem for older and disabled people due to the steep road leading up to the hotel,... More

Best deal in Longyearbyen. Despite all the rest being very expensive, this guesthouse maintain a decent price according to the location. The 20 minutes walking to the city center is not a problem at all. Great thing the breakfast included and the towels, but incredibly missing the free Wifi. There is Wifi, but you have to pay for it. Didn't... More

The host (Tround) is always available. Take some vacation man! He booked all our activities and taught us a lot of this beatutiful island. We loved the place, so calm and cozy. good atmosphere. Breakfast was good, even for my wife who has gluten allergy.
