Great stay
Very friendly and helpful staff. Pretty good selection of food for breakfast. Bedroom and restrooms are clean. Thankful to have a common kitchen area to cook food. Very slippery road on the way up to the property when we got there because of snow/ice. Overall a very good stay.

Ideal place for a budget traveler
This place is ideal for budget travelers. It is a bit far from the city center, but still in walking distance. I stayed in a dormitory. The room was not big for 4 people, but it was fine. The staffs are really helpful and friendly! I will recommend you to stay there if you are planning to visit Svalbard.

Keep my room, I’ll be back 😅
I’ve been staying there for my second time. I love that place! It’s silent, away form those fancy hotels in the middle of Longyearbyen and also just a few steps away from an awesome spot without light pollution. I’ll be back in Svalbard with a small crew to make a documentary and hope to stay there this time too

I booked my stay quite a few months ago and hadnt realised that I would be staying in a mixed dormitory. I did initially give a poor review but then discussed it with the receptionist at the hostel. I had no complaints about the rest of my stay. The breakfast was excellent.

Had two one night stays at this property either side of a cruise and I can recommend it, especially for those wanting an alternative to the expensive hotels. It is not extremely central but an easy enough walk into town. Rooms felt a bit cramped but overall okay. Bathrooms were usually available and clean. Free breakfast was good (especially considering the location). A bit more expensive than usual hostels/guesthouses but it is Svalbard.
