Marken is a rock solid 8/10 hostel, it has some great pluses, but could do with a small injection of character + heart. Pros: Perfect location, clean, friendly staff, the free wifi works well everywhere, A+ equipped kitchen and the best locker system I have ever come across (big lockers, no padlocks, 1 key and free). Seriously, more hostels need...

We stayed here in the first week of December and enjoyed ourselves. We loved the location of the hostel as we could get everywhere by foot. The staff weren't unfriendly but it was often hard to get information out of them in terms of things to do, places to go, help with getting to the airport etc. We really had...

My friend and I stayed here in 2 different occasions. The first time we had a private room and the second time we had a bed in a 10 female dorm. The hostel is great and the staff is very helpful and polite. It is centrally located and a 3 minutes walk away from the train station. You can reach...

Dec 12th - 15th - We stayed in a private room with a private bath. Our stay was quite comfortable. The guesthouse is a good value - rooms are somewhat small, but clean and quiet. Very good location and locally known, so it's easy to find without a map. Staff is friendly and helpful.

Very good location, nice staff. Room isn't very big but cozy. Nice view from the window. Full equipted kitchen. We had a room with a shared bathroom but it was no problem, no queue to toilets or shower. I would like to go back here.

The place is clean and well maintained despite it being a guesthouse. The kitchenette in the room is a bonus when cooking is essential (to bring down the cost when travelling in Norway). Highly recommended for wise travellers who want to spend on fjord tour or museum visits instead.

I had a very lovely stay at this hostel. The price was good for the area, the room was clean and comfortable, plenty of shower facilities. A fairly small kitchen but had everything you needed. Walking distance from main attractions and very close to the train station. The staff were very welcoming and helpful too. Very pleasant stay all round!

My husband and I stayed in Marken for 2 nights during our visit in Began and we chose a room with private bedroom. I got some questions before the stay and their replies were prompt and clear. Since I would check in late (at around 8:30pm after taking "Norway in a Nutshell") and there was no more staff working at...

This place was very good! Clean and comfortable! Staff was friendly and the location was great! My only problem with it was that the bunk beds were very noisy so I kept waking my roommate up and vice versa. Other than that, the showers need a little more improvement maybe some shelves or hooks on which to hang stuff while...

Stayed here for one night in December with a friend. I was surprised just how basic the accommodation was for the price we paid, when compared to what we got for our money in Oslo. As long as you arrive knowing this is a hostel you won't be let down. It was well equipped, plenty of showers and comfy beds....
