Breakfast was great and the serving times were well planned. Rooms were modern and clean. Friendly staff. Good location. Few negative points. The time we were in Oslo the tempareture was about 30 oC and there was no aircondition. Windows opened only few centimeters, so the room was lika a sauna at times. Wifi wasnt allways available.

Stayed 8 days recently and found it comfortable and convenient. Rooms were clean and well appointed with excellent free wifi speeds. Hotel security was good and front desk staff were very well-informed and helpful. Breakfasts were good and available from early. There was bar food but no hotel restaurant but since it's only 100 metres to a whole raft of... More

The cheapest hostel in Oslo so that's what you get. The rooms are OK but there are no public kitchens and not every room has one. If you want to cook and your room doesn't have a kitchen they give you the keys of another rooms which results in some quite awkward situations. There is no typical hostel feeling and... More

Stayed here for a couple of days en route to Tromso. The room was adequate, breakfast was quite good, and the price was not too painful (by Norway standards). As others have noted, it's a bit away from the main tourist areas, in a region where the city starts to get a bit less polished. I wouldn't say it was... More

Location was great for traveller without a car, clean rooms and good service, breakfast was very good with cold and warm foods. Rooms were a bit small if the stay would have been longer but for couple of nights it did not bother.

After 7 days hiking in the mountains of Norway (with the nice cabins!) we had three more days to enjoy Oslo. We stayed in the Anker Hotel, because of the value. Chamber was small but clean. The bed a little hard. Lobby big and quite. Breakfast was not that good. Not that much of a choice and the food was... More

I recently stayed here on my own and have to say the location, cleanliness, food and staff were all excellent and very good value for money. It is literally a 8 minute walk to the cathedral which is very central. I found a brilliant take away fish and chips which the only way I can explain to get to is... More

I thought that this was great value for money, especially in a city as expensive as Oslo. Only 10 minutes walk from the central train and bus station, and all of the main city attractions are within walking distance (within reason). We walked everywhere from here. The staff were very helpful and gave us our rooms as early as they... More

A very good hotel for a short break. The reception staff are incredibly helpful and knowledgeable. Rooms are good size compared to Europe and had windows that open, hairdryer, decent towels, great shower, free WiFi. The location is great - easy walking distance to the main train station and right on a tram line. A short walk to Grunnerlokka, a... More
