Stayed in a single room for three nights on a business trip. Good enough bed to sleep well in and a very good wifi. Generous with log-ins so that I could have separate for job and private. Breakfast was solid with bread, youghurt and coffe/tea. Nothing fancy but enough for a day of activities. The hosts were very nice and...

Great guesthouse! Free basic breakfast, free WiFi (the signal is very strong) and very friendly, helpful staff. Airport bus stops almost in from of the guesthouse. The schedule is fixed and available at reception. Actually, a lot of useful information is available at reception: tours, weather forecast, local events etc. The location of guesthouse is challenging, 2.2km from Longyearbyen center,...

I've stayed here a few times - the first time about 2 years ago when I thought it was superb and very friendly and welcoming. Its still usually the cheapest place in Longyearbyen and the rooms are clean and spacious and the breakfast hearty. Nybyen is about a 20-30 minute walk from the shops and bars, but its a pleasant...

I stayed now for the second time in Guest House 102, and I am still enthousiast about the place! This is a great place to observe polar lights, since 50m from here it's completely dark. The beds are comfortable, the breakfast is more than ok. The place invites to have contact with the other guests. The house breaths the atmosphere...
