Bit far from Longyearbyen - but close enough to walk. Very cheap comparing to other options, with excellent breakfast and nice people.

Good budget place for Svalbard May 20, 2008
The Spitsbergen Guesthouse is located in old miners barracks in the town of Nybyen, about a mile south of Longyearbyen. I had a very clean and nice dorm room with a shared bathroom, in late May I had the room to myself. The bus from the airport will drop off and pick up here. The reception is in a separate building. Free wifi and breakfast were included in the rate, the breakfast buffet had a good selection. They can pack up a boxed lunch for you as well.

It's a little inconvenient to the rest of town (~20 minute walk or so) so it would be good to have a bicycle or some other transport.
