Close to the hiking place. the Receptionist were nice and helpfull esp. Janet was nice and kind lady to deal with guests at midnight when they arrive from airport.

We stayed here for a few nights and it was really nice. Very clean and comfortable hostel, clean bathrooms and great showers. The breakfast was really nice too. A bit of a walk to town but it's a nice walk, and the Coal Miner's Cabin restaurant is just across the street which is a superb restaurant with excellent food if... More

Spent there 7 days/nights. Best value for money!!! Friendly and helpful staff, clean rooms, very good and fresh breakfast (didn't get bored even when had breakfast for 7 mornings). And if you think it's far from city centre - there's nothing far in Longyeabyen. If you're going on a trip/hike/excursion then all of them come to pick you up at... More

Firstly, the prices of rooms here are affordable. The breakfast was great with adequate food choices available, not to mention the Norwegian Brown cheese was really good. The counter personnel was warm and helpful. In terms of cleanliness, it was maintained in tip top conditions. Overall, I had a really pleasant stay here. Would strongly recommend this place if you...

I stayed at the Gjestehuset 102 in Longyearbyen for two nights at the end of May 2016. The bus from the airport drops you right outside. I was in a single room and the bed was great - more like a 3/4 double bed rather than the usual single bed size. Washbasin in room. Shared bathroom which is to be... More

I stayed here for a week in June 2016. I had a single room which was simply furnished and enough for my needs. Never once did I find the shared toilets and bathrooms anything other than perfectly clean. The staff were extremely helpful and always friendly even when under a lot of pressure. There is quite a long walk down... More

The place is a hike, it is in Nybyen, but, the rooms are very comfortable, and large, compared to other twin rooms in Longyearbyen. It is far from town, but the walk is probably good for you. The staff is super nice and helpful. The rooms are very clean, and the beds are very very comfortable. Surprisingly very good breakfast... More
