We stayed here for the last week of January and had a great time. Of course the place is located far from the town centre but it is an amazing walk to and from town (- and taxi is about 130 NOK if needed on a late night). For us this turned out to be just perfect. Well equipped kitchen...

Even though I am not a fan of hostel kind of accommodation, this one surprised me. Guest House 102 is a very nice and affordable place when staying in Longyearbyen. Even though toilets and bathrooms are shared, they are always very clean and accessible. Crew is very friendly and supportive. Breakfast typical Scandinavian. We had a room for two persons,...

The cheapest variant of the accomodations in the Svalbard. They provide very clean rooms of different types: for one person, for two or four. Rooms are warm and clean. Every morning they serve the good breakfast. Also there is the possibility to use the shared kitchen for cooking. Wifi also available and free

Gjestehuset 102 offered way more than i could expect! They were helpful and patient during problems with my credit card and the complicated way i made my booking. I got all the important information on the reception and didnt have to worry about booking activities, i just told them what and when and they did it all instead of me....

Considering prices in other accomodations in Longyearbean. Definitely it's a best place. Breakfast is good enough, at least you can fill up your stomach till lunch. There is also kitchen on 2nd floor. So there is always possibilty to save some money and cook for yourself. One minor disadvantage, it is 20-25min away of walking from the city center.

The guesthouse is located on the outskirts of the town so it's a little trek to the centre but an enjoyable trek. The hostel is located on top of the hill so in January at times I was walking in knee highs snow to get to the front door. The room I was staying in was for one person and...
