During my recent trip to Norway, I stayed in 3 hostels in 3 different cities (Oslo, Bergen, and Stavanger). The Bergen YMCA was my favorite for many reasons - the location was perfect, the amenities were top notch (kitchen, lounge, dining room, luggage storage), the staff was great, and the rooms were great. I stayed in a 6-bed dorm and...

My wife and I stayed in a 4 bed room. The room was clean and comfortable and had a bathroom as well as a kitchenette and fridge where we could store food and prepare tea. We were lucky to have roommates who were actually very nice The bathroom was large enough and fully functional. The full kitchen is a little...

The receptionist was rude and cold. We booked two consecutive nights on separate bookings and she wouldn't allow us to stay in the same room (though we've emailed the hostel to tell our situation, which she adamantly denied). Kitchen was a cesspool of filth. Male showers are shared without any cubicle. If you don't mind rubbing soap over yourself naked...

This was my first hostel experience and it was great! Obviously, it's nothing fancy but it was a good stay. The location was great and the beds were comfortable enough. The room we stayed in had a bathroom with a shower in it.

This hostel is a stone's throw from the harbor and fish market that seemed to me to be the geographic heart of the city center. So it was very close to restaurants, the tram up the mountain, a couple of local bars and clubs. On the other hand, central Bergen is not that large so don't feel that such a...

I had a double room with private shower for the lowest price I could find in Bergen. The room has a kitchen which even included some cleaning products. The beds had to be made up ourselves (as this is a hostel) and they were comfortable. There was even a seat and a table in the room. The bathroom was quite...

This was the first hostel I've ever stayed in, but I was quite impressed! I stayed for one night in a room of 16 people. The hostel is located right in the centre of Bergen - turn the corner and you're basically in the main port/marketplace area! It was clean and the staff were friendly. You make your own bed...

Stayed here four times in 2014 so far, each time I've had few problems. Staff are helpful, facilities are quite clean, nice bright social room. Only complaint is the size of the kitchen, during the evenings it's often impossible to find any space to make a meal until everyone has cleared out. Great 4th floor terrace though!
