definitely a great hostel with great location. I was there just last week in a 4 bedded room. Very new and clean with attached bathroom and even very own kitchenette! the staff were really friendly too. The only thing I didn't like is that they mix all the dorm which I was not aware of till a man walk in! Just a little inconvenient but otherwise no problem at all. The kitchen provided is great with oven, microwave and even a dishwasher! oh and free coffee and tea too...

I really could not find anything to fault in this hostel. The location is fantastic: you could not get any more central, and right next door to a mini market for self caterers. Security is excellent: you need a swipe card to get into the building and into the rooms. The rooms and bathrooms were clean, if a little cramped, but I don't see that as a fault - most hostels in europe has small rooms. The showers are not communal, each room has it's own ensuite. We stayed there during the off season so some of the facilities weren't open, for example the main kitchen and common room, but there were kitchenettes in the rooms, and one of the rooms on the 3rd floor had been converted into a temporary common room which had a TV and free internet. There is also a small terrace on the 4th floor with a nice view over Bergen harbour. The one difficulty with this hostel is the time that the staff are there - the office closes at 3pm in the low season, so if you are going to be arriving after 3pm, you need to call ahead so that someone can meet you, otherwise no one will answer the doorbell. The hostel is about a ten - fifteen minute walk from the main train station, and about 2 minutes walk to the famous Bergen fish market and Bryggen area. A really great hostel for an excellent price. I would definitely stay here again.

One of the worst hostels in Norway

The hostels I stayed at in Norway were all very clean and well maintained. But this one was lacking many things. I stayed here a few years ago, so maybe things have changed. But when I was here, I had to share a huge dorm with guys that seemed to be camped there for good. Was really disgusting having to climb over all their dirty stuff to get out in the morning. It was a pig sty. And as a lone female traveller I felt rather uncomfortable. The showers were communal which not a lot of people enjoy, including myself. But that aside, it was still in a really good location, and a cheap price. So even though I called it one of the worst hostels in Norway, if you aren't spending a lot of time in the city, you might want to stay here just for its location.

I stayed there recently for the 2nd time and a lot of things have been changed and renewed. there is an internet caft, large living and TV room, new kitchens and bathrooms and very helpful staff. Plus I don't think you could get a more central location! I was very pleasantly surprised after reading the other not so nice reviews. It also has a fantastic roof terrace with BBQ overlooking the harbour.
