Liked: Lovely staff, clean and secure, and the free breakfast was great. The rooms feel very private and we well-heated, with very comfortable beds.

Disliked: The location isn't the best - its about a 15minute bus ride from the city centre which, being Norway, can get pretty expensive if you are doing it multiple times a day. Also bedding isn't included but can be rented for a charge.

Liked: großzügiger Aufenthaltsraum

Disliked: Lage: Erreichbarkeit mit Bus umständlich, die Kosten für eine Einzelfahrt wurden erhöht und liegen jetzt bei 40 NOK, was umgerechnet im Moment ca. 5,55 EUR sind. D.h. man gibt pro Tag mehr als 10 EUR nur für die Fahrt in die Stadt aus.

Liked: Breakfast was great, view from the back garden at sunset was breathtaking, architecture of the hostel itself was quite pretty.

Disliked: Wifi didn't reach the rooms and essentially didn't work even where you could get it. Had to do my forward booking at burger king in the city center. They didn't seem to see this as a problem; just business as usual. Door only locked if you were very nice to it.

Liked: The cheap price of the hostel may attract unpleasant guests. It might be better to spend more and stay elsewhere. Breakfast staff slighty aggressive, didn't make us feel welcome to take it everyday. Hostel policy is to charge guests for almost everything, which we didn't get into. Far from the center though lovely landscape. No recomended if no car. Good and generous self-service kitchen.

Disliked: Unwelcoming.

12 September 2012 Anthony would recommend this property

Liked: In a good location, but given the expensive nature of Norway, it will cost a bit just to catch a bus to town, not to mention a taxi from the airport. Having said that,it cost me the same to get a cab from Sydney airport to home, about the same distance to the Bergen Airport to the hostel, so Australia is on par with the most expensive country in the world. A good mix of nationalities, ages and gender. Quiet location and good staff.

Disliked: No lockers in the rooms. The long couch could be replaced with somewhere safe to store your kit.
