Exceptional 10.0
In these days, eh... I needed a place to stay for the night. Were no buses going to my place. But I thought everything was locked down. Thankfully Marken Guesthouse have made arrangements. The lobby isn't manned but you can reach a receptionist by phone and your reservation will be taken care of and you can use your payment card as a key.

Poor 2.0
The only good thing about this place was the location. I have stayed in many hostel in the last 10 years. This one was by far the worst ever. the kitchen is horrible, too small and doesn't provide labels for our food. The room - OMG. So tiny!!!!!!!! and dirty. We stayed there 4 nights and had to ask them to clean the trash bin. I would say that if the location is more important than what a place offers, stay in Marken Gjesteheus. If not, forget it!!!!

Good value good location
Generic hostel, i slept on the upper bunk bed, but all the electric socket is on the ground, which made it difficult to charge your phone at night. Cubical shower but it's unisex. Good location

Fair 4.0
Very basic room
Room is too small for 3 persons. Got to do your own bed when you arrive. But you get hot water free. Location is near the bus station if you need to catch a bus to the airport.

This is a great budget guest house. The location is great, but it was a bit tricky to find the entrance which could have been more clearly marked.
