          I don't think I've stayed in a better-located hostel. It's a basic accommodation, but being able to walk a block to see Bryggen or a block to the Fløibanen can't be beat. Worth the price.

          The hostel is in a perfect location, right in the hustle and bustle of the main square, a beautiful location for a week or just a night stay. Right across the square is the fish market, down the way is Bryggen, and it's surrounded by coffee shops, restaurants (complete with patios), among much more ! If you're doing the Norway in a Nutshell tour, it's a short walk to the train station first thing in the morning. The rooms are nice and clean, can be a little cramped if it's full, but it's not a bad place to hang your hat for the evening.

          It is hard to imagine a beter location for a hostel than right in the heart of Bergen's tourist district. Almost as amazing is the reasonable prices they charge. I came in without warning from the hinterlands so I was , of course unable to get a private room. The summer dorm is actually an auditorium full of bunk beds, a little daunting at first, but it's pretty quiet and folks were generally respectful. Being mostly for youth, the lights were on late at night and off until late in the morning, which wasn't exactly to my taste. Security in the building was first rate for a hostel, with access cards so that we could come and go and use the facilities. Breakfast was pretty good, too. A proper Norwegian buffet with a wide range of good foods available for NOK 65, a real deal in the tourist zone of a Norwegian city. I'd say it's as good as you could ever expect from a youth hostel in a big city. I'd love to return with a little lead time and try their private rooms.

For the first week of my Scandinavia trip I will be traveling with my friend Caroline, who it turns out is quite the optimist. Upon our first walk around the town Caroline stated that she was 'amazed …

          Since dad hadn't seen the Bryggen area yet, we went there and to the Bergenhus area nearby for a bit until it was time to head to the airport. In front of one of the hotels, there is an airport bus that leaves several times per hour and is super-convenient a well as MUCH cheaper than a taxi would ...

          The food is amazing, with plenty of fresh seafood. Fish, crayfish, prawns and crabs are plentiful.

          Salmon is very popular, also herrings and eel. This is served for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Bread here is very fresh and tasty and any type imaginable, freshly baked in the hotels.
