Lightning fast response to emails by Olena regarding booking since the very beginning! I arrived at the snow blizzard, airport shuttle was free for everyone. The place is nice and cozy. Had a conversation with Olena about activities available at the moment and got nice "tips and tricks" that are very useful to know. Good wifi, nice bed :) .....

The most that I like was the people working at the Guesthouse 102. They were simply AMAZING, specially Olena (the nice girl at the reception) who was so kind, trusted, helpful and always smiling. The breakfast was also great, specially because they included soy milk on it (since I don't drink regular milk). Just an incredible staying, in a warm,...

While I was initially disheartened to learn this hostel was located pretty far out of town, I really began to love the charm the location brought. Though Longyearbyen is already a tiny town, being on the outskirts added to my pursuit of isolation. The walk to downtown was also a nice way to get some time to myself. My flight...

Perfect experience!! Very nice (and abundant) breakfast! Excellente assistance during activity booking, very nice atmosphere! The room is also fine, a bit small and without desk, but that it the right excuse to use the shared space (the two kitchens and the living room!). The position is also nice, even if not in the centre (I mean, 10 minutes from...

I recommend this place 100%. Our experience was absolutely amazing. Our main goal was to see some Northern lights, and that is why this spot is perfect, 1 minutes walk to a dark area. Where it is easy to see them. The only downfall is that its a bit far , 30 mins walk to the centrum. The staff are...

I stayed 3 days at this wonderful place. The staff was very nice and helpful, and always provided me with good advice. The place was clean and comfortable. The breakfast was great and it is nice to have the possibility to cook your own food in the all equipped kitchen. It is not located in the very centre of Longyearbyen,...

Clean, good service and very good value for money. Although located quite far from city center, this guest house is just next to darkness and mountains. You can step simply step outiside to see the northern lights or go hiking. Heated floors throughout the house add to coziness.

My few days at the Guest House 102 were exactly as I expected. The staff were happy to help, and often went above the call of duty. Olena, the manager, was able to help with a number of unusual requests and was clearly doing so for other guest groups. She and all the staff have a passion for Longyearbyen. The...

We stayed 4 days at the Guesthouse 102. The staff was really friendly and helpful. Our bedroom was simply furnished but nice and comfortable. There is also a kitchen where you can cook during your stay (good to save money).
