I booked this hostel for my husband and I for two nights. Check in was awful (they're only there until 15:30) so when we arrived at 20:00 we were supposed to get our keys out of a lock box which was broken. The only option is to call a number and as we are traveling internationally I couldn't. Thank goodness...

It reminds me of a sterile hospital with no life to it, they treat you like children limiting rooftop access and banning alcohol on premises (hello, we're on vacation wtf) the staff was so limiting and the overall experience had me checking out as soon as the reception desk opened up the next day. i've never had this experience with...

The location was great and the staff was very very nice and helpful. However, the bed felt like sleeping on the ground. The room I stayed in had probably not been cleaned in months. Looking at the floor I was disgusted. There were empty beer cans and water bottles in the windowsill next to my bed. While the wifi worked,...

the location is perfectly placed to enjoy the beauty of Bergen, The location is very close to the Fish Market. The rooms are clean and kitchen is also handy when you want to cook. The common area is also quite big and internet is also quite fast. Most of the attractions can be covered by foot. Overall must recommended to...

My friends and I stayed for six days in this hostel in October and I would say that the experience was kind of surreal. The beds are really close to each other although they are comfortable and there is barely space to put your stuff, not even a hanger. You need a card key to even go to the bathroom...

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....

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...
