Bergen YMCA is perfectly central. It is only a few minutes away from the central station and the fish market is practically next door, only a few steps will lead you there. This means you can get very fast to Bryggen and to the funicular, to countless restaurants and shops.

The rooms are just okay, nothing special, but there is toilet and a shower in them, which is nice, but still leads to the << everyone wants to take his shower at the same time >> problem.

The kitchen is well equipped and you get free tea and coffee. There is also a shelf with free food in the fridge. As for the common room, it is nice (even though no computer works there... you really have to bring your own, there is free WI-FI) and comfortable.

The only thing this hostel should have is a laundry room. When I asked, the lady at reception sent me to a laundry place close by... and it was really ridiculously expensive. Don't go there.

But despite this, Bergen YMCA is a perfectly good value for your money, especially if all that you ask for is to be close of everything there is to see in Bergen.

The YMCA is in a fantastic location. The staff is helpful and the facilities are clean. If you are traveling solo and book a room in a bunk room just remember that the bunk rooms are coed. You cannot beat it for the price and location in Bergen.

A great hostel, very centrally located and within walking distance of major attractions within Bergen. Rooms are modern but fastidiously clean and the welcome in reception is warm and the staff helpful.
A great base for a weekend break or longer stay in Norway - we ventured to Voss for sea kayaking in the fjords and on to Flam which was breathtaking.

I went to the hostal with a group of students from my school as part of a Comenius meeting. We weren't the only ones, there were a total of 70 of us for that visit. The hostal staff were helpful and easy to talk with. Its rooms are clean and generous, They don't have any luxuries but then, it is a hostal. At least all the rooms are newly furnished and warm.

Best of all the location, the hostal is in the heart of Bergen a stone's throw from everywhere. All in all recomendalbe if you want a hostal.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that looks out onto the square, the higher up the better.

I stayed at YMCA for a night. I had no booking, so I was happy to know that they had spare rooms. The check in was really fast and they provided us with clean bed sheets free of charge. The room had it's own bathroom and little kitchen, both of which were clean.. Also, the hostel is offering free wifi. For those that didn't have laptops, they had a computer room. However, the computers were out of order when I was there, so I didn't have internet access. Also, there was no warm water in the shower.
Overall, pretty acceptable for its price. No warm water and computers out of order excluded it was pretty good. And the free linen were a plus. Though Bergen is quite small, YMCA is really well located. Just a stone's throw from the harbour, the fish market and Bryggen. I would stay again.
