Welcome to our hostel

Bergen – ‘The Capital of the Fjords’ - is among Norway’s prettiest and most exciting cities.

The student town has great atmosphere with a bustling fish market, cosy cafés and bakeries (try out the local cinnamon rolls!) and narrow, cobbled streets. Perfect for all types of groups, this European city of culture is a great destination for combining the great outdoors with a slice of history.

The Montana hostel is situated at the foot of Mount Ulriken, one of the seven mountains surrounding the city of Bergen. From the hostel there is a beautiful view of the town centre and great hiking opportunities. In winter, the hostel is in a great location for taking advantage of the fabulous skiing opportunities. The famous cable car “Ulriksbanen” takes you to the top of Mount Ulriken, and is only a 5 minute walk from the hostel.

Stroll along the 16th century harbour side ‘Bryggen’ with its famous wooden buildings, take a trip to Troldhaugen – home of composer Edvard Grieg or visit Old Bergen and Fantoft Stave Church.

For families staying at the hostel make sure you book a day out at the aquarium or the science museum and don’t forget to ask at reception to see if any discounts for guests have been arranged at local attractions.

What’s more if you buy the ‘Bergen card’ you will have free access to most of the tourist attractions in Bergen with free transport.

So no matter what time of year you are visiting, the Montana Family & Youth Hostel is a great base for exploring this beautiful part of Norway. Why not make an enquiry today?
