Johan Blyttsvei 30, Bergen
The Montana Youth and Family hostel is located on the hillside of Mount Ulriken. Members of Hosteling International receive a 10% discount on the nightly fee. There's a great view overlooking Bergen city center from the hostel and there are several hiking paths located near the hostel. The stay does not include linens or towels, but you are welcome to rent some from the property or bring your own. The Montana Youth and Family hostel also offers bikes to rent so you can ride into the city center, and they have free parking if you're driving. They have free internet, a TV lounge, foosball, table tennis, and a nice gym to keep you busy. Breakfast is free and the kitchen is open to everyone for making other meals on site. This hostel is popular among hikers because of its location on the hillside near the hiking trails, but if you're mostly interested in exploring the city, this is probably not the best option as public transit is not the best to get to and from the city. The staff here are friendly, but especially during off-season (October-April) there is a strict 10:00 pm check in.
