This was the first hostel I've ever stayed in, but I was quite impressed!
I stayed for one night in a room of 16 people. The hostel is located right in the centre of Bergen - turn the corner and you're basically in the main port/marketplace area!
It was clean and the staff were friendly. You make your own bed (of course) and the sheets were really pristine. The whole hostel is kept very clean - including shower, toilet areas etc.
There is a really nice lounge and kitchen area - I got breakfast in the morning which was pretty extensive (cereals, tea, coffee, meats, bread) for the price. I was there for such a short time I didn't use the kitchen. You get given a keycard which you need to access all the rooms, including your own dorm. Lockers are in the lobby, you have to pay a refundable deposit of 200kroner or leave your passport/driving licence at reception to use one.
Naturally it's a busy place so be prepared for a hustle and bustle of people always coming and going!
It does look at touch shabby in places ... but then it *is* a hostel, not a hotel. It's extremely clean throughout.
I'd recommend this hostel.
