We stayed in this hostel 2 nights. It is very central (a 5min walk from everything). You get bed linen and the wifi is good. Works better in the rooms though. The kitchen and dining area is downstairs. Small kitchen but it has everything you need to make a good meal. Just make sure you time it so you and... More

With my friend we stayed here 3 nights in March in double-twin room which was furnished better than some hotels are. The hostel was really really clean - I've never seen such clean shared shower in hostel before. The breakfast menu was varied, tasty and served in nice large room where morning sun accompanied. The hostel is situated in the... More

Clean rooms, fresh linen packages, separate fMily rooms with own bathrooms, quiet and safe. Breakfast is good value and offers a good selection. Well located around the corner from a bike hire shop. Close to main attractions and central station.

Stayed here only for one night in an ensuite female dorm and it was perfect! Probably the best hostel I've stayed so far (out of 8 in this trip). The room was extremely clean, I didn't even feel the necessity of wearing flip flops! The staff was very nice and helpful with directions, recommendations, and printing boarding passes (especially the... More

Our family of 4 stayed here as it was the only semi-affordable lodging in Oslo for one night in June 2015. The front desk staff were very helpful in helping with restaurant recommendations and directions. The breakfast was basic but tasty and filling. There were a variety of guests there too- young and old, couples and singles (no other young... More

This hostel was BORING. The front desk staff were VERY friendly, it was one of the cleanest hostels (if not the cleanest hostel) I have ever been to, but there is ABSOLUTELY NO ATMOSPHERE. I wouldn't stay here again as a solo traveller as I found it hard to meet people here. If you want a quiet night in a... More

Location is good, near shopping area, castle, and good restaurants around. Bed is a bit tiny but room is clean. Breakfast is ok, no yogurt, no choice of milk. wifi is good in room. Would recommend to stay.

I’ve stayed in Oslo Hostel Central last May while attending to Conference in Oslo. The place seems to be one oasis in a very expensive city. Very clean and well managed the hotel looks great after long days working and walking around Oslo. Free internet is available throughout the hotel (including a printer). Breakfast is very complete serving both continental... More

This hostel is truly "central". The location is perfect - 5 minutes to the harbor and the ferries, 2 minutes to Karl Johans Gate, and about 5 minutes to the Opera House. Despite its central location however it is extremely quiet. The front desk staff we encountered were always friendly, young, and very helpful. The whole hostel is astonishingly clean... More
