The hosts are both born and raised in Bergen, and would love to share their knowledge about the city with you. They love being in the nature, and could recommend you many great hikes in the city, for both beginners and more experienced hikers. Bergen is not only a place with amazing nature, but also an relaxing spot to drink coffee at nice book-cafees or just chill in the city. Bergen has also a lot to offer for people who loves old history. Historic sites are everywhere, and you can spend hours just scrolling in the old hansiatic houses at the harbour.
The house is a few minutes with the city train. (Or you can walk) It`s in a peaceful and safe area, but still so close to the city.
There are two nice pubs/restaurants close by, one is Bien, that used to be a an apothecke, and serves homemade Norwegian dishes. Another is Prego, who has an italien cuisine. There is also a few places to get fastfood nearby and a bakery.
If you like our place, we would be superhappy if you put us on your wishlist on our Airbnb site.
The guest is welcome yo use the whole apartment. It`s important for us for you to feel at home.

It`s up to the guest how much they want to interact with the hosts. Off course it`s wonderful to learn a little bit about each other, but we respect the guests privacy.
The neightborhood is within walking distance to town, safe and with all the things you need. A bakery, a grocery store, 3 restaurants and good running paths. The tram goes every fifth minute outside the house. (100 meters away)

No smoking inside.
Hanne and Thomas were wonderful hosts! I only wish I had spent more time with them. I had a couple hours to chat with them when I arrived, and they gave me maps and recommendations of things to do. They were very nice and accommodating, and I'm really glad I stayed with them.
The apartment is (email hidden)ean and comfortable. Close to tram stop so its easy to get downtown. The room was perfect for one person. The bed was very comfortable. I would definitely stay again!
Thomas was great and let us in a bit earlier so we could enjoy our cruise in the fjords, which was very much appreciated as we only had 1 full day in this beautiful city. We did not have the chance to meet Hanne, but Thomas and the lovely Lykke made this stay very enjoyable.
The bedroom is perfect for two friends visiting Bergen, and the whole flat is really clean and spacious. We loved the style of the main room! We highly recommend it.
We had a wonderful time staying with Thomas and Hanne! Their apartment is beautiful (so tastefully decorated!) and located within easy access to the tram and airport busses. It's about a 25 minute beautiful walk to the city center, which we really enjoyed doing. Hanne and Thomas (and Lykke) were great hosts, providing us with great information about Bergen that was incredibly helpful. They were also a pleasure to chat with. Thank you so much!
Thomas was an incredible host. He provided excellent directions to get to the house, and subsequently met me at the tram stop to make sure that I got to the house with the least amount of difficulty. Once I arrived he provided excellent information about the city and surrounding areas. He also volunteered to take me to Mount Sandviken when I expressed an interest, which provided an incredible view of the city.
The house was exactly as shown in the pictures, and was a fantastic place to stay. They also have the friendliest dog I've ever met, very affectionate and entertaining. I'd highly recommend staying with these wonderful people in their wonderful house.
I absolutely loved my stay at Hanne& Thomas place. Everything has truly been perfect. Be it the homely feel of the place or the warm welcome and tips I received from Hanne& Thomas on places to go and things to do…. The location isn’t too far off from the centre – about a 20min walk or a simple hop on the tram. The room is ideal if you are travelling alone and the little reading corner with lots of travel guides triggers off plenty of ideas for next potential trips.
Highly recommend staying here.
Really nice and especially helpful people! Thank you for the time I could spend with you and the cutest dog on earth ;-)
I had a wonderful stay at this adorable apartment. It looks even cuter than in the photos. I highly recommend this spot!

About the Host, Hanne & Thomas
We are a couple both in our mid twenties. We love to travel, meet new people and be active. We are born and raised in Bergen with a lot of passion for hiking, fishing and just being outside.
We started as airbnb hosts this spring, and have already had a lot of wonderful experiences. Meeting people from all over the world, sharing stories and telling people about Bergen, has been something that made our daily life richer.
Apart from enjoying the outdoors, we are huge coffee-lovers and use our weekends hanging out at our favorite cafès in Bergen, such as Bastant, Krok og Krinkel and other hidden treasures.
Our favorite travel spots are Thailand, Borneo, England, Italy and Indonesia.
One of us work as a journalist in the newspaper of this area, and the other one is selling real estate in Bergen. We used to travel around the world, but since both of us is working a lot now, we save up the travels for the summer. That`s one of the reasons why we love to have company from other travelers the rest of the year.
We have a cute little social dog, who`s name is Lykke. She is a two kilo dog with the same interests as her owners. She`s a peoplelover, and she never get tired of playing and cuddling.
If you are coming to Bergen, we would love to have you as our guest, and we are more then happy to make suggestions of how you can make the most of your stay in Bergen.
Feel free to write us with questions, or anything we can help you with. We reply fast.
Best regards from
Hanne, Thomas and Lykke.
