I stayed in this hostel for 4 nights by myself in a private room with double bed but with shared shower and toilet. I have a hard time referring to this place as a hostel because it was so amazing it was almost like a good hotel. The location is amazing and is no more than 10 minutes walk from... More

Changed my negative opinion on hostels. Clean, quiet, really central. I didn't use shared douche so i cannot judge it but other components are very well. The receptionist replied the incessant questions of visitors ("how can we get to", etc.) with a smiling face. I won't look for any other place in Oslo in my next visit. Why 4 points... More

Very clean and comfort, but staff who helped check in midnight was unkind.

This is one of several Norwegian hostels that also provide hotel-level rooms (with private bath and breakfast). It was very comfortable and quiet, clean and modern. Very nice staff, and the lobby and dining area had a nice communal atmosphere with a wide cross-section of guests from all over -- backpackers, families, retirees, young couples, etc. The dining area was...

I stayed for 2 nights in a 6 bed women room with private bathroom last month. Everything was very clean. The hostel is not very big but it has all the essentials: kitchen, lounge, vending machines if you need a late snack. The room wasn't very big but the first night there was only one other person staying there, and... More

The hostel is located in the centre of everything. I arrived from Copenhagen by the ferry and it was only around 10 minutes walk from the pier. You can reach the Opera house, Karl Johan street, the cathedral and central station within 5-10 minutes too. Actually Oslo is a very walkable city. I didn't take any public transportation during my... More

The Oslo Hostel Central has a great localization, near the Station and Opera House, it is very clear and they offer a very good breakfast. It's possible to go walking to the Opera House and train station very easy.

Close to the main train station (walk up the main Karl Johans gata, turn left on Kongensgate), easy to find and within walking distance to almost all the main attractions in central Oslo. Staff were pretty helpful, rooms were small and simple but clean and cosy, sheets and towels were provided, breakfast was excellent. If you book early, prices can... More

Oslo Hostel Central was a great place to stay. The rooms were very clean, but basic and VERY small. The staff was all very nice and helpful. The breakfast buffet was excellent, and the kitchen was nice as well. The hostel is in an excellent location, within walking distance of nearly all the main sights. Would definitely recommend this place... More

I and my friend decided to explore Oslo city for 1 weekend and were in search for some cheap hostel in the city center. I think we were bang on when we selected this hostel. We reached Oslo from Gothenburg by bus and reached the hostel after 10 min walk from central bus and train station. It is very close... More
