I have stayed at Marken Gjestehus three times and I realize it is vastly overpriced. It cost me NOK 630 (USD 100) for one night - and that is the lowest you can get as a single traveller in one room.
What you get? A bunk bed where you have to put on your linen yourself (and take them off in the morning). No people in the reception except in the middle of the day (what do you do if you lock yourself out of the room?). Shared bathroom with the rest of the floor - which is generally ok, but not for this kind of price.
No breakfast in the morning. I pay NOK 100 to eat at a hotel nearby (5 min walk).
On the positive side: The place is clean and you have free Internet access if you bring your laptop and remember to ask for access code while there are people in the reception. Central location.
I will stay at another hotel next time in Bergen. I would gladly pay a little more and get a real hotel bed, bathroom and breakfast in the morning.
