Easy to walk to the water front, the train station and the major attractions. The guesthouse has all the facilities you need: free wifi, well equipped kitchen, dining room with beautiful view, comfortable sitting area, clean shower and restrooms and friendly front desk staff, and it has an elevator which is very helpful when you have luggage to pull.

I loved staying here! Location is fabulous - a 5 minute walk to the harbour in one direction and a 2-3 minute walk to the train station in the other direction. Our room was lovely, bright, clean, large with an en suite bathroom with powerful shower and even a hairdryer. The bed was large and comfortable and the wi-fi was...

I was a bit prejudiced when I booked this property. But later I found myself quite wrong. I stayed at Marken Gjestehus for 2 nights in economy twin room with shared bathroom. I arrived after 11pm on the day arrival and I highly recommend you to inform the property in case of late check-in as they close after 10.30 pm....

I was positively surprised with this hostel. Rooms are clean, its a small hostel but with good areas to chill or be with your laptop. Kitchen is pretty decent as well. Staff is nice and there are people cleaning all the time. Shared showers and toilets but there are not that many people around and people are very civilised. Families...

This hostel is an OK option if you're looking for something central, and walking distance from the train station and harbour in Bergen. It's on the higher floor of a building in the centre of Bergen. Facilities such as the kitchen and bathroom are looking a little tired but the rooms were nice enough. It's a little cramped, and you...

We only stayed here one night and didn't have time to see or do much, but it was quite centrally located for the price. The rooms were good and the wifi worked really well. The kitchen was well equipped and there was a stunning view from the eating area. Definitely stay here if you're heading to Bergen!

This hostel is located quiet in the middle of the city (though the city being really small). Easy to find and near the train station also. It is clean and comfortable. Good toilets and bathrooms. The dining area is awesome. The view from our room and dining area was of the mountains which I loved. The room was cozy and...

It's a hostel, but very clean, nice and overall organized. They have rooms with bathroom (including shower) so it can be a regular hotel, too. Yes, rooms are small, but comfy. Conveniently located in the very center of Bergen. Staff is very friendly. Late check-in system is awesome (just call them a few hours before they close). It's a great...

I had such a great stay on Aril 25, 26th and 30th. I broke my arm a few days before arriving the hostel and the office staff helped me make my bed and made sure that I had a bottom bunk in a 4 bed dorm room. They also helped with giving me advice of what to see in the...
