Rooms are tidy and clean. Hotels in Oslo are quite expensive and this is the one with relatively resonable price for short stay. It is not far away from the railroad station just you have to walk up the slope along the road when you get from the station to the hotel. The slope is not steep but you can't... More

The quality expectancies exceeded considering the price :) spent a good time, and had a nice trip in Oslo. Loved the receptionist in the hotel, very helpful and friendly. Best regards. Recommend you to stay here if you are looking for a cheap good sleep in the center of OSLO!! :)

I had a really great stay here. It's really centrally located so everything is pretty much within walking distance. Rooms were clean and spacious. I stayed in the 4 bed female dorm with en suite. But only had one other person in there with me. Breakfast was included which was really handy. Staff were nice.

This hotel should not be rated as a hotel. A lodge or Hostel would be most appropriate. A pretty bad lodging place with absolutely no standards. I had a terrible night with loud noice from a machine somewhere in the ceiling the whole night. I never slept the whole night. Its absolutely no value for money either so beware dont... More

All our guests should have a good night sleep. That is important for us !!! The night you stayed, one of our ventilation pumps went on strike. This made the other one work harder and therefor made more sound. We are so incredible sorry for the inconvenience, and that you had a bad night. I know it does not help... More

I enjoyed my 2 night stay at the Perminalen Hotel. It is in a great location and the rate I was charged quite reasonable. Staff are very nice and helpful, I appreciated having my continental breakfast boxed up for me when I had to checkout early. If I am in Oslo again and need a basic, relatively inexpensive place to...

This is a perfect hotel for people who are not hung up on luxury and only need a place to sleep. Cleanliness and order is perfect and the breakfast is excellent. It is also centrally located only 5 minutes (by foot) away from Stortinget (the Parliament) and Oslo's main street Karl Johans gate. It is also far enough away from... More

I've just returned from an amazing stay at Perminalen. The location is brilliant, right in the centre of Oslo close to Karl Johans Gate and a stone's throw away from Stortinget. You won't find anywhere cheaper in a location as good as this. I was in a dorm room, nothing special, just the standard 4 bunk bed layout with ample... More

The price is is not that great but the service is awesome, from the cleanliness to the buffet breakfast (the detail I loved the most) and the front desk staff...All i have to say is that was impressive, maybe because my stay was during winter and the place was almost empty or that was what I felt (the place is...

Only had 1 night in oslo and this was one of the cheaper options in the city. The dorm was clean and had lots of room but no lockers. Breakfast was included in the price and you could eat as much as you like. It was clean and did the job but lacked atmosphere.
