My husband and I stayed in Marken for 2 nights during our visit in Began and we chose a room with private bedroom. I got some questions before the stay and their replies were prompt and clear. Since I would check in late (at around 8:30pm after taking "Norway in a Nutshell") and there was no more staff working at...

This place was very good! Clean and comfortable! Staff was friendly and the location was great! My only problem with it was that the bunk beds were very noisy so I kept waking my roommate up and vice versa. Other than that, the showers need a little more improvement maybe some shelves or hooks on which to hang stuff while...

Stayed here for one night in December with a friend. I was surprised just how basic the accommodation was for the price we paid, when compared to what we got for our money in Oslo. As long as you arrive knowing this is a hostel you won't be let down. It was well equipped, plenty of showers and comfy beds....

I stayed here with a friend in a female dorm. Our room had a private bathroom even though we had not requested this and was a nice surprise. The rooms were clean as was the bathroom. We didn't make use of the kitchen but it seemed well equipped. The location was excellent and the noise level was very low.

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 :)

Our stopover after the Norway in a Nutshell journey. We stayed here only for a night an opted for the private 2 bed (bunk) room with shared toilet. Our room opens up into some courtyard and being on the highest floor offers some extra privacy. It can get a little noisy towards the evening but after 10 pm everything was...
