The staff is very friendly, everything is clean, very good accomodation.
You have to walk about 25 minutes to be in the city centre, even though it is no big deal for my perspective but it is something to keep in mind.
Lovely breakfast , really lovely Filipino and Thai staff working there , everything Good expect a long walk into town only negative .
Location , location , location .
The bed was comfy for myself and my infant. Waffles were good with the breakfast. Staff were polite and sweet to answer my queries and help.
Common bathrooms and toilets. Hostel is a bit on the hill so hard to walk back from town centre with the baby but might have been fine if walked alone.
The room was clean and comfortable. Good breakfast, helpful staff.
It is expensive for a hostel, but well, it is Svalbard. The location is also quite remote, around 2.5 km from the center of Longyearbyen, in a town without public transport - so you're in for a walk everytime you want to go to the center or come back to the hostel. At least the landscape is great.
We provide accommodation with peculiar charm. Gjestehuset 102 is located in Nybyen, at the top of the Longyear Valley, two kilometres away from the city centre.
The guesthouse was formerly the “millionaires’ mansion” arranged for the best and most experienced miners, built in 1946. In 1999, Barrack 102 became Gjestehuset 102, currently hosting the happiest visitors in town. Gjestehuset 102 has 61 beds (7 singles, 19 doubles and 4 four-person rooms). We do not offer a luxury stay, but a 5-star experience in the Arctic!
Gjestehuset 102 is a great spot to start your adventure for trips both summer and winter since we are surrounded by 2 glaciers, mountains, coal mines, fiords and wildlife! A lucky guest can manage to find polar foxes and reindeer hanging around, just by taking a look through the window. Get speechless during the dark season, where you can experience the starry skies, or see the Northern Lights dancing towards the south a beautiful phenomenon we can see both day and night here in Longyearbyen.
