One of the cheapest hotels in the expansive Tromso. Position is great, staff friendly and helpful and wifi always working fast.
Rooms are very basic but spacious, bathrooms look new and are functional.
There is also a kitchen available from 11am to 11pm, very useful to cook a meal and save some money.
Downside; sheets didnt appear very clean.

We arrived at 11PM after flying from Spain. We had booked for a double room and the guy in the reception gave us a single room, pretending it was double. He kept on saying it was double, but there were only one single bed: it was big but clearly SINGLE, with only ONE set of blankets. Finally, the boy gave to us a triple room. I guess they had run out of double room and he tried to fool us. Next morning, no hot water. Unbelievable. Another employee told me to go to the second floor, but it was a loss of time. I checked other days and at 12 AM they had already run out of hot water. Also, very important, to get to the hotel, the streets do a slope, very hard to walk if the snow becomes ice. I would’ve spent more money in booking for a hotel closer to the main street or buying special complements for the boots. It is only 4 streets up, but the last one is a nightmare. Another thing: don’t expect to go inside the hotel and feel the warm air. It’s quite cold in the common places and in the rooms. And we didn’t have wifi in the room, the signal was very low. Good things? Cleanliness, confortable. But I have to say that it is not a hotel, it is a hostel or B&B.

This was a brilliant hotel to stay in for a few weeks. The staff are amazing, very friendly and helpful. They allowed us to use the washing machine and dryer free for doing our clothes. They had a fully stocked kitchen that was kept clean and unlimited free coffee. The rooms had a fridge and was very warm and clean. Not sure I would critisise anything, we really enjoyed it here.

This place is half a youth hostel, and half a budge hotel. You can pick rooms with shared bathrooms, or private bathrooms with very little extra charge. The rooms are no frills and very, very small (which is expected with the cost...) Our room was clean, warm, and WiFi working flawlessly. I would recommend bringing your own shampoo and soap, as the private bathrooms have only one type of generic soap (very drying) that is contained within soap dispensers attached to the sink and shower walls... Front desk is not 24/7, but receptionist very helpful and courteous. There is also a self service kitchen for all to use, regardless if you are staying as a hotel or hostel guest. This comes handy is Tromos is shockingly expensive, especially to traveling Americans (a beer averages between 100K to 120K, or $17 to $20, and raw dozen of eggs in a supermarket is about 60K or $10!) The hotel is located up on the hill, and within a short distance walk (about 5 min) to downtown. Highly recommended if you do not mind basic and no frills stay, and prefer to spend your $ on other things while in the very expensive city of Tromso...

I was very pleased with the accomodation- free wi fi, fridge in the room, comfortable beds, large tv and a powerful shower. It was great to have a kitchen to cook in as restaurants are generally pricey in Tromso. The hotel was a little bit higher up so you get a great view of your surroundings. The staff were friendly and helpful. They also had free tea and coffee. Breakfast is available at an extra cost. They also clean the rooms daily.

I would definitely recommend to stay here as its very accessible and great value by Tromso standards. It depends on what you are looking for. We were here to see the northern lights and do activities like dog sledding in Tromso so we spent very little time in the room.

Room Tip: ask for a room with a view of Tromso

The apartment - great value especially in Norway - can cook meals and beds are really comfy. Higher up above the town so get a great view over the fjord. good base for northern light chasing tours etc

Room Tip: Need to make sure the entrance isn't slippery with ice - we had to put gravel down to make safer...
