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...

We were at this hostel for 2 days only and was a nightmare. Dirty, noising all the time, busy and disgusting kitchen. Furthermore, we had a situation with people trying to get inside our room (drunk) in the night, and we booked a private room. A lady screaming in the night because she was a prostitute and her guest was... More

Norway as a whole is expensive, as everyone knows--you don't really realize that until you get there. This hostel certainly isn't a five star hotel, but at its prices, it wouldn't be. Yes, they don't have many showers, and the bathrooms certainly aren't the best--someone had smoked in the ones on my floor every single morning I was there. I... More

We stayed in this place for 3 days and it was enough to say that it was AWFUL. The hostel is not even worth the money we paid. Dirty, smelly and weird people all around. Prostitutes just off the main entrance at night. Hope nobody will go! Location it's ok
