    The hotel is bang in the middle of the city centre, walking distance from the sights in the city. The rooms and bathrooms are simple, but effective. Unfortunately the bathroom drain couldn't cope with 2 people showering one after the other so the bathroom was a bit flooded each time we showered. The air conditioning or lack of was uncomfortable... More

    The hotel is at a good location near the train station and at walking distance to the city centre. The old building has been completely renovated and our small (as advertised) room was fresh, clean, minimalist, with quite a big private bathroom with free towels and soap. The wi-fi was fast and the window opened. Check-in/out is automated but help... More

    This hotel is super nice if you are traveling on a budget. It's right downtown, close to the train station. It is clean and pretty. It is also super modern - there is a machine at the entrance where you do the check-in yourself.

    I stayed here for four nights in July and would highly recommend it to anyone visiting Oslo. It was reasonably priced (for Oslo) and in a central location; close to the main shopping strip and central train station. The rooms were clean and stylish, although very small. The rooms were basic with a bed, small desk and bathroom (no hair... More

    The rooms are small however they are clean and convenient. It is located very close to Oslo Central railway station which makes it very convenient if you need to travel the next day. The WiFi is very good and the price is usually almost half of the price of other hotels in Oslo.

    Very nice place with extremely good price. The fact of not having a reception is not a big deal since check in/out is easy to do and there is always someone available if in need of help.

    A very basic hotel. Beds are comfortable, but it lacks some basic amenities, like shampoo (unless you think goo soap is shampoo), like hangers for clothes. They have a seating area in the lobby with a microwave and a shared fridge, which is usually full. Very conveniently located, but is in a somewhat sketchy area. not a big deal, since... More
