We stayed for two nights in September. We took the train in from Oslo (well worth doing), and so were very glad that it was just 4 minutes around the corner. The little pedestrianised street that it's next to was lovely, with a nice look cafe and some good restaurants. The harbour is only another 10 minutes away. The hostel...

I stayed here on a solo trip in August 2015. I reserved a bunk in a female 4-bed room. I took the airport bus to the main bus station and walked to the Marken. It was less than a 5 minute walk and even though I didn't quite follow the directions on the website, I managed to find it quite...

I got the airport flyer bus from the airport to the central bus/train station in Bergen. It worked out about £13 return. Staff at...

Norway is sooo expensive that you just have to look for a cheaper option and if all hostels were like this I wouldn't bother to stay in a hotel! We had a double room with ensuite and it was terrific. Funky decor and very clean and spacious. The staff were really friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Light and...

Easy to walk to the water front, the train station and the major attractions. The guesthouse has all the facilities you need: free wifi, well equipped kitchen, dining room with beautiful view, comfortable sitting area, clean shower and restrooms and friendly front desk staff, and it has an elevator which is very helpful when you have luggage to pull.
