We visited Tromso on the weekend of 8-11 Mar and booked a 4-man cabin (the cheapest one) for 8th and 10th night. It was clean, comfortable in size, only drawback is no attached bathroom, but we already knew this when booking the cabin so that was expected. Staff at front desk were really helpful with all our requests (cooking utensils that we had to pay a deposit for, change of pillow cuz it was too flat, leaving a note for a friend who was joining us later etc.)
We had a northern lights tour on the 8th night and spent 7 hours 'chasing' them at different locations - finally caught a bit of it at the last place. This was already past midnight. We went back to our cabins feeling quite happy and satisfied. After showering, on the way back to our cabins, WE SAW THE NORTHERN LIGHTS APPEAR RIGHT OUTSIDE OUR CABIN. Did I say the non-attached bathrooms were the only drawback?
IT WAS THE BEST THING THAT HAPPENED TO US THE ENTIRE TRIP.
We were out in the snow, in awe of the amazing northern lights display just outside our cabin. They were literally dancing in the sky and it was the best one hour of the entire trip. We caught a video of it and about a thousand photos (although the photos don't do justice to its beauty cuz they were pretty badly taken).
One might say the above experience was due to our luck and had nothing to do with Tromso Camping. But on the 10th when we checked in again, they gave us a free upgrade to a bigger 5-man cabin with attached bathroom and living area (2 bedrooms)! We were really thrilled.
Overall, great experience with Tromso Camping and I would definitely recommend this place to my friends visiting Tromso!
PS. it's a bit of a walk from the city center, but the walk is pretty nice in good weather. :)
PPS. The shared bathroom was really big and clean!
