HI - Bergen Montana Hostel Reviews

HI - Bergen Montana Hostel, this classic Hostelling International hostel, is at the foot of the very popular Mount Ulriken hiking trail, about four kilometers out of central Bergen. As such, it's a good base for outdoor activities and attracts an outdoorsy crowd. The greater space of the suburbs also allows the hostel to have several large common areas -- a luxury for Norway.

The Location

The hostel is located up a hill in a leafy residential part of Bergen four kilometers out of the centre -- a one hour walk or conveniently served by a bus route from the main bus/railway station, so it remains accessible. Just don't miss the last bus of the night if you've gone into town!

Launch out the front door bright and early in the morning and you can walk straight up to Mount Ulriken and even beyond, for an all-day hike along the ridges and down into the centre of town. Catch a bus back to the hostel in the afternoon and complete the loop. The hostel organises this as a group hike most days, so you can find company.

Rooms and Bathrooms

As you would expect from a Hostelling International hostel, the rooms and bathrooms are all very tidy and organised, if a little institutional. Bathrooms are numerous and clean. The hostel is warm at night. Dorm rooms are available from four to eighteen beds, and private rooms for single, double, twin, or family -- all types of rooms are locked with electronic key cards. Many of the rooms have writing desks and couches for some quieter hangout time too.

Common Spaces

This hostel is well equipped with common spaces, including the dining room with a spectacular view across the city and fjord, and a common room with lots of couches, a foosball table, and a big map on the wall showing the hostel's popularity with people from all over the world. An excellent breakfast is served as a buffet and includes a wide range of European food choices and some cold fishy Norwegian options if you're feeling adventurous. There are two kitchens for guests to cook, which certainly beats paying Norway restaurant prices, and there's a local grocery store a couple of minutes' walk away. There's also a small gym and parking included.


This hostel is a reliable option for outdoorsy types to stay right at the start of hiking trails although it's a bit out of Bergen centre. Although parts can feel a bit sterile, the warm common areas and group activities make up for it -- it's often sold out, even in autumn and into December!
