Great place, great people, great food:) everything that you would need in Spitzbergen. Perfect spot to start a hike to a glacier. In the winter you can see the northern lights nearly from the entrance to the guest house.

We got such a warm welcome. The host helped us with all our questions and gave us advice about clothing and 'polarbear free' areas. The rooms are clean and cosy, there is a nice living room and we can cook our own dinners, so we can save some money. Just a lovely place!

Our group of 12 had a fantastic stay in Gjestehuset 102 whilst here on a polar training camp in the breathtaking Longyearbyen.
