The surroundings are beautiful and the famous wharf (Bryggen) is a 20 min walk from the property. I had opted for a 4 bed shared... More

Located in the very city center it is the perfect sport for a short trip. The staff is very friendly and helpful. My room as well as all the common areas were very clean. At nighttime, I personally found it very quiet, but maybe that is different during the weekend :)

Just 1 night at this quaint hostel, located only a few minutes walk from the train station, slightly longer for bus terminal. Check-in was efficient. I was given my sheets & credit card-like room key. The dorm room was clean, the bed was comfy & there were locker cabinets big enough to hold my bag. Communal area & kitchen looked... More

Bergen has limited choice for stay and is really costly even compared to other Scandinavian countries. I booked one room with private bath directly through their web site since it was the cheapest option. Later on had some communication about public transport etc and the response was prompt and wonderful. The location of the guest house is unmatched. Both railway... More
