This hostel was one of the nicest I've ever stayed at. Located inside the Bodo train station, I arrived here by plane from Bergen. I took the local bus into town, and after a brief hike, found myself greeted by the friendly staff. I was provided with information about local hikes in the area and took advantage of the hiking...

I stayed here on my way home and was immediately welcomed by a friendly staff member, who chatted with me about working in England's Lake District. He also recommended a seafood restaurant on the marina, which proved to be an excellent choice though a bit pricey. Overall Norway's hostels have impressed me with their cleanliness, efficient organisation and pleasant staff.... More

I stayed here for one night between arriving from the Lofoten Islands and flying out of Bodo. The hostel is well-located near the ferry terminal and the city centre, with lots of bars and restaurants only a short walk away. I had an individual room. It was very basic, with rather tired-looking, cheap furniture. The bathroom was better and looked... More

This place is in superb location, very near from the Ferry port and right on top of the railway station. The people were very helpful. The room was very clean. we all loved it (family of four -...

Nothing special about this hostel, it was clean but very basic. The breakfast wasn't good, but it was included in the price so I guess it was better than nothing. Wifi worked well. Location was quite good, had a lot of restaurants and grocery stores nearby.

Myself and my partner stayed in this hostel, our first in Norway after couchsurfing through for 2 weeks, for only one night after spending some nights camping on the island of Moskenes. Due to the nature of this building (hostel, hotel, motel) the hostel experience was certainly lacking. The place was depersonalised due to its size, so if you are... More

Arrived from Moskenes, 1 night stay for the flight on the next morning. It was a bit difficult to find the entrance although we had check online that it was suppose to be just by the Bodo Train station.There is no signage as per normal establishment.

For the price and location, as long as you are well aware you are staying in a hostel, it's quite a pleasant stay. We arrived at about 1am from the ferry, we had arranged to pick up the key as it was a late check in prior to this. On arrival, we were tired and silly and couldn't find the... More

We booked the hostel last minute as our booking elsewhere fell through. The room was adequate, slightly noisy due to the trains and breakfast was basic. Staff were very friendly and helpful despite being disturbed late in the evening past reception closing time.

Was in Bodø for a business trip but there were literally no hotel vacancies in the whole town. So I ended up in a 8 bunk room in the Bodø Vandrerhjem. I am used to great hotels for work travels, but the Vandrerhjem did not disappoint. 8-man room is never perfect, but everything was well organized, clean and facilities looked... More

“Hostel is really wide, so you can be close to the kitchen (300+) or to exit (200+) - it's your call :)”

“I was with my wife and daughter but in a male dormitory. It was fine, I assume they are all the same so can't see any particular problem with any. I guess l had good worn out room mates who wanted to sleep as much as l did. Excellent shower.”

“Ask for a room facing the harbour. The blinds in our room were not up to scratch so we were wide awake at 6 in the morning. However, if you are an early bird then I suppose that this dosn`t matter too much.”
