I thought this would do for a one night stay, but as it turns out the huge red itchy bed bug bites hounded me for more than a week, blistering in my hiking boots while on my walking holiday. After my second email (no response to the first) reporting the bed bugs they offered me a discount if I wanted... More

Was a bit amazed when reading the other reviews about this hostel because I did not have a bad experience here at all. The beds were very clean and the guy at the reception was very friendly. I really liked my one day stay here ...

The rating would not go lower so I had to give it a one. If the free company in bed was human I would give a four since I like biting. We did not sleep all night and we ran like hell in the middle of the night like me had the devil on our heels. And we are not... More

Very bad hostel. I was there in 2013, the building was run down. The double room with shared bathroom was very small, there was just enough room for the bags. The shared toilets were usually not very clean and smelt bad. The kitchen was often dirty (of course guests were also to blame for this) and there were very few... More

Everything is very expensive in Norway. This hostel is located near the train station and it seemed pretty safe, although when I was there the sun never set. It can be pretty loud in the street as well. I stayed in the all-female room. It hadn't been swept in a looonnnng time and I was the only one in the... More

We stayed at Sentrum Hostel for one night. For a discount hostel, it was a fine place to stay. It is an older building, but the beds were comfortable and the bathrooms were clean enough. Wifi was good, they stored our luggage all afternoon, and there was a machine that gave the only affordable cup of hot chocolate in Norway.... More

Sentrum Hostel is an old hotel right in the center of Oslo which has a certain old charme. It's also very affordable for Oslo standards, so it's the ideal base for your sightseeing/going out trip as you can walk to all the relevant downtown sights and venues. The facilities are all a bit worn down but definitely ok. What I... More

Basically, this is the cheapest hostel in Oslo, and it's just not worth it. Loads of prostitutes both inside and outside the hostel, and also quite a lot of drugs, I think (people both buying/selling and taking). No sturdy locks on the doors. No lockers in rooms. Dodgy area (felt like it, at least). Really weird atmosphere. The guy at... More

I very much appreciated the beds. There were no bunk beds and that makes a huge difference. Rooms were very spacious and light. I loved the location and the fact that the hostel is easy to find and reach from every corner of the city. Staff was helpful and kind, although I did notice that the reception was closed most...
