This hostel is in the BEST location. Right in the middle of the Fisherman's Wharf its perfect for enjoying the city center. Every morning the fishermen set up and sell their catch, you can buy as is or they will cook it for you right there. There are tables set up for eating with a great view of the harbor.... More

Central location 50 meters from the harbour and visitor centre. Fantastic view from the room top. Rules are relaxed. There could be more toilets in the ground floor. Did not interact much with the staff but they do give you a very handy Bergen guide which turned out to be quite useful.

We stayed for one night before our departure from Norway. The main advantage of the hostel is its central location, just a few steps awayfrom a fish market and Bryggen. The Flybussen stop is also near. We stayed in a dormitory for more than 30 people without any windows, for an overnight stay it is OK. Toilets and showers are... More

One of the worst hostel I have been!!! It's so dirty,rude staff,internet doesn't work properly, bad shower and bed,and it close the door at midnight,so if you are late,you must call one telephone number!!! The only good thing is the position,in the centre.

The hostel is a couple flights of stairs up above a pub/cafe. Our room was in a female dorm of 14 beds. We had a toiler and shower between us all in the dorm but the only other showers were downstairs almost back to where you entered the building! The beds are uncomfy and the bunks shake far too much... More

Couple of minutes to fish market with roof terrace the overlooking the harbour & fish market. Helpful & friendly staff. Good value compared to other hostels I browsed. However, no individual lights or outlet for the gadgets. There's kettle, fridge & cooker. For dorm bed of 6, having wc in the room is a plus factor

Basic room with ensuite bathroom. Staff and location cannot be beat! I was very happy to be in all-female dorm. Beds were okay nothing great. I would stay here again, was much better than another hostel I stayed at in Bergen! Very close to fish market stop for flybus!

We came here back in Feb 2015 and my first impression was that I was in a spy movie as we had to put in a code on the door to get in (reception was closed) and put in a code in a safe to get our room keys, very exciting! We found our room okay and the beds were... More

I stayed in the 36 bed dorm. This was a horrible idea. The bunk beds were the most uncomfortable in my life with the slats digging in my back each night making it near impossible to get any restful sleep. I ended up folding the blankets and all my extra clothes underneath me in order for some comfort. It was... More

The location is great - 8 minutes to the railway station/bus station, right next to the bergen fish market, tourist info, 4 minutes to the Bryggen buildings, 7 minutes to Floibanen and good places to eat out nearby. We stayed in a 4 bed mixed dormitory. It had a kettle, utensils, sink, 2 bunkbeds, attached washroom which was very clean.... More
