Liked: I really liked the small refridgerator in the guest room I stayed and the water heater. So you´re not bound to get into the kitchen one floor down.

Disliked: I found the kitchen a bit too small. Also I got a very distant feeling in the dining room and TV room, but maybe that´s because I stayed there only for a very short period of time. It didn´t feel so much as home as other hostels I stayed with felt like.

Liked: The property is very well located; the famous Fisketorget (where you can enjoy tasty and cheap seafood), World heritage Bryggen harbour and the iconic Floibanen funicular to Mt Floyen are all in the vicinity. Though the counter staff were always busy they took time to help us and gave great suggestions for our trip. The dining area was big enough for those interested in eating in and you could actually make friends with fellow guests if you're so inclined.

Disliked: You get the quality you pay for so I think for the price I paid this property was within my expectations.

Liked: Location

Disliked: Staff wasnt very helpful, as I had some trouble to access my email from my phone (it was a really urgent matter) and needed to use a computer. There was none available for costumers and didnt get any help from the staff. Breakfast is a bit pricey for the choice they offer.

Liked: Location is perfect. Nice and clean, mostly young travellers.

Disliked: Very. Very cold at the rooms. The heater works automatically, turning on for about 1-2 hours per day during daytime. There's +3 at the night and you could freeze to death if case of not putting all your clothes on for a sleep time.

Liked: You can use luggage room and lockers after check-out. Kitchen is well equipped. Nice small beds. Near everywhere walking, including bars and clubs. Nice atmosphere.

Disliked: Shared restrooms men and woman when you don't have private room. Reception isn't 24hrs (but they said that on description) Bathrooms are super shared, two showers on the same cubicle with no separation. And you don't have a room to change or take off clothes in private.

Liked: The location of this hostel was great - just round the corner from Bryggen so near all the sights. Free tea and coffee is also offered - not the best but hey, it's free! Two small common rooms which were nice and cosy for making friends.

Disliked: There was only one power socket in the 14 bed dorm with a four socket adapter attached, so a bit of a battle to charge electricals at times. All computers in the common room were broken at the time

Liked: The lounge room has comfy couches and it's nice to eat breakfast at the small table there. The location is amazing; steps away from the water and info center and great views from the rooftop terrace.

Disliked: The kitchen is functional but tiny. It's nice to have cupboard space in the rooms but I wish there was the option to store dry food in the kitchen also.
