Spitsbergen Guesthouse

Southern-most in Longyear Valley, at the foot of the Longyear Glacier, lies Nybyen where we offer accommodation at reasonable rates in the living quarters that once housed the miners of Longyearbyen. Spitsbergen Guesthouse now consists of three "living quarters". The converted "living quarters" offer a total of 124 beds in single, double and triple rooms. The guesthouses contain a good number of bathrooms with showers and toilets in the corridors just a few paces from your room. The guesthouses also have common rooms with TV, radio and a small kitchen.


Nybyen was built as part of the post-war reconstruction programme for Longyearbyen. The settlement comprised 8 accommodation units for miners, as well as bathing facilities, a laundry and a mess hall. Today Spitsbergen Guesthouse offers comfortable, reasonably priced accommodation, located in the upper part of the Longyear valley and within easy reach of mountains and glaciers. The place is an excellent starting point for hiking, skiing and snowmobile trips, during both summer and winter.
