"YMCA - Budget Accommodation" Bergen YMCA Hostel Tip by Pete_1

Bergen YMCA Hostel, Bergen: 300 reviews and 2 photos

I've been to Bergen on three occassions now and each time I've stayed in the YMCA at Bergen, This is a local hostel right in the hub of all the action Bergen has to offer.

It's a hostel so its fairly basic accommodation. Shared dorms etc but these have their own bathroom.

A great communal facility with TV and free internet connection. Good cooking facilities and very friendly staff.

If you visit make sure to pay a visit to Brygen, the fishmarket and the hill that overlooks Bergen (can't remember the name. Some great bars and coffee shops. A fantastic break and very cheap flights can be arranged from UK airports.

It is in expensive country so all the more reason to save on accommodation at this great hostel.

If you come to this lovely part of the world I'd definately suggest you invest in the Golden Circle Tour. You'll have a fab day seeing some amazing scenery on railways, boats on the fjords, coaches etc.


Unique Qualities: The hostel overlooks the harbour with a lovely roof garden perfect for reading a book on a summerday or nipping outside quickly for a speedy photo at dawn on a wintery morning.
