Breathtaking view over Bergen. Brilliant location!!! Good place to start your hikes from or explore Bergen. For kids we recommend the "Vilvite" fantastic place for the young and old ;-) but plan at least 4 hours for it! If not the whole (rainy)day.

I liked the loungeroom, good beds and the clean room. It would be nice to offer a healthy eveningmeal

Excellent location and good access to local bus into city centre. Kitchen can be cramped at meal times, little space for eating and cooking. An excellent place to stay, especially. If you like walking in outdoors up mountains.

Fantastic hostel, great location, inside also perfect. One thing what was not fantastic: not enough space on the room to put two mattresses next to each other. Fantastic: privat wc/douche

Rooms were too warm. I get that it's a cold country, but the rooms don't need to be that warm. Not good for your 'Environmental Practices' either.

When you exit the bus you'll be about 200 meters from the youth hostel. Look for a hostel sign indicating the direction. You can check the timetable on the local transportation website skyss.no If you are 4 travelling together a taxi directly from the airport to Montana can be cheaper.

Car
From Voss: Follow E16 towards Bergen. After approximately 85 km (at Ulset) your road will be E39. After the 3km long tunnel "Fløyfjellstunnelen" choose the right hand lane marked "Stavanger". After a few hundred meters this leads you onto a multilane street where you should get to the farthest left lane as soon as possible. Keep left up to the traffic lights and turn left into Ibsens gate. Follow this street to its end - where you turn right onto road number 585. At the first hilltop after about 1/2 - 1 km you'll see a sign pointing to Montana. Turn left and follow signs all the way to the youth hostel. From City Centre: follow Kong Oscars gate Road 585 southwards. After driving through the tunnel in Haukeland hospital area you soon get to a hilltop where you see a sign pointing to Montana. Follow the signs until you get here. Free parking at hostel.
