Angie M.

Front Desk 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.

Breakfast In-charge, Housekeeping

Pat, our hardworking breakfast attendant and housekeeping staff, joined our small team a year ago and has settled right in. She loves to serve waffles in the morning, greeting our guests with her loveliest smiles. For Pat, the "thank you's" of our guests after handing in their used dishes is the best part of her day. Pat has been living in Svalbard for 14 years, and continues to thrive in this beautiful place she calls home.
