Bed and books have 2 homes, I was Lucky to be housed in the writers home overlooking the fjord. It has all facilities for Cooking and laundry, book Exchange and a Nice guitar to have a jam on. Kept lovely and warm With great customer service I enjoyed my stay.

Tromso Bed & Books is like an upmarket hostel with cooking and washing facilities included. We were midway through a cycling trip and this was our opportunity to wash our clothes. We were the only occupants of the five bedroomed “Writer’s House”, no time for reading anything from the extensive bookshelves unfortunately... washing, eating, sleeping then back on the bikes!

I've travelled extensively, staying in hostels far and wide, but this has to be one of my favorites. I stayed in the Writer's home, which was clean, quaint, and equipped with all of the cooking utensils and tourist info one could ever need. Even though I arrived after office hours, getting my key was simple, due to the prompt and... More

If you're accustomed to the large chain hotels then like me maybe you need a change from time to time. An opportunity to feel like someone more than just a customer. At Bed & Books I felt like I was part of a home. Don't expect breakfast to be prepared and served unless a friend is managing this for you.... More

I really love this place! Staff is friendly and show you around the house as soon as you arrive. The wallpapers in all rooms are very pleasant to look at. The availability of books and DVDs make you want to just stay at the comfy sofa whole day. Facilities are quite complete too. Location is quite a walk from the... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 3 nights in March and had a great stay. The B&B is located just a 10 minute walk or less from city centre and it was so easy to get around. The area was quiet and we slept well! Easy checkin and checkout process, clean common areas full of warmth and intrigue, and... More

We really enjoyed staying here. The decor is relaxed retro with big comfy sofas to chill out on and a really well organised kitchen. There is one person always around during the day who is very friendly and helpful with good tips for getting the best out of your stay. Ask to go whale watching in Arnes boat - maximum... More

The writer's home was comfortable, clean, cozy and very well equipped. The vibe is relaxed and homely, and it's a perfect option to rest in between winter excursions. The staff is welcoming and not fussy at all. Even if it is not a cheap hostel, you make up for it in comfort, because so many facilities are available for free.... More

This place was great. Perfect location, an easy walk to the city center. Beautiful, cozy home. Hosts were wonderful and kind. I would happily stay here again. Would be great to rent out the whole place with a group of people.
