Our staff

Gjestehuset 102, your home away from home!

Gjestehuset 102 is a great spot to start your adventure for trips both summer and winter. We are surrounded by glaciers, mountains, coal mines, fjords and wildlife! A lucky guest may spot polar foxes and reindeer, just by taking a look out the window.

Get speechless during the dark season, when 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. 

In summer you can fully enjoy our endless days – thanks to the midnight sun shining 24/7 from mid April till late August. 

Let us be part of the greatest experience of  your life!


Angie M.

Front Office Manager, Marketing

Coming from a tropical country, Angie had never thought she would be able to set foot in a place that far from home and so different to everything familiar to her. Upon walking through the Gjestehuset 102 front desk, be sure you'll feel at home as she will warmly be welcoming you. Truly, for Angie, Gjestehuset 102 is her home away from home- and she wil make sure it will be so for you too!


Khristin Aina G.


Khristin has been living her best life since she moved to Svalbard in 2018. Although she had only a little idea of this gem up North, she fell in love with all of Svalbard- the people, the extreme environment, and just everything in between. Being born and raised in a hospitable country such as the Philippines, expect Khristin to render the same. Happy to serve you as you start your day with a breakfast to whenever you need assistance.

Christiane S.


Being an open-hearted, friendly and spiritual person, Christiane was traveling several European countries. As she came to Longyearbyen, this magical place twisted her head so she "missed" her flight back to the main country and is now finding her place in this special and extraordinary community.
