The upstairs common area/bar is great, the coffee is really good, plenty of beer/liquor, and always people to hang out with. Lots of locals come to Loft for a drink and its always a good time up there.

It was clean and close to the city center (10-15 minutes walking to the city center, also there is a bus stop 1 minute walking). It has a range of facilities (great coffee machine, choices of teas, hair dryer, straighteners,...). Staff was the best, they were very nice and so helpful (Thanks so much for everything!). I highly recommend the hostel. We really enjoyed our stay.

Great value for money (stayed in a 10-bed dorm): clean, roomy, comfortable, organized (kitchen, common area). Great athmosphere, we met special people from a dozen of exotic countries. Close at walking distance to the FREE hot spa near the fiord (Nautholsvik beach). Most amazing for us: something FREE ha ha ha.
