This place was very good! Clean and comfortable! Staff was friendly and the location was great! My only problem with it was that the bunk beds were very noisy so I kept waking my roommate up and vice versa. Other than that, the showers need a little more improvement maybe some shelves or hooks on which to hang stuff while...

Stayed here for one night in December with a friend. I was surprised just how basic the accommodation was for the price we paid, when compared to what we got for our money in Oslo. As long as you arrive knowing this is a hostel you won't be let down. It was well equipped, plenty of showers and comfy beds....

I stayed here with a friend in a female dorm. Our room had a private bathroom even though we had not requested this and was a nice surprise. The rooms were clean as was the bathroom. We didn't make use of the kitchen but it seemed well equipped. The location was excellent and the noise level was very low.

Located in the old city part of Bergen, had a comfortable stay for my duration of 4 nights over here. Its hardly 10 min walk from the central station, and is very easy to locate. The surroundings are beautiful and the famous wharf (Bryggen) is a 20 min walk from the property. I had opted for a 4 bed shared...

Located in the very city center it is the perfect sport for a short trip. The staff is very friendly and helpful. My room as well as all the common areas were very clean. At nighttime, I personally found it very quiet, but maybe that is different during the weekend :)

Our stopover after the Norway in a Nutshell journey. We stayed here only for a night an opted for the private 2 bed (bunk) room with shared toilet. Our room opens up into some courtyard and being on the highest floor offers some extra privacy. It can get a little noisy towards the evening but after 10 pm everything was...

Just 1 night at this quaint hostel, located only a few minutes walk from the train station, slightly longer for bus terminal. Check-in was efficient. I was given my sheets & credit card-like room key. The dorm room was clean, the bed was comfy & there were locker cabinets big enough to hold my bag. Communal area & kitchen looked...
