The good: Incredible breakfast Good security Clean and organized The bad: More like a hotel than a hostel, it does not have that backpacker vibe. It's close to attractions but the street itself is kind of rough, there were prostitutes around. If you're exploring Europe, I would say 2 days is enough in Oslo. The city is not that exciting....

The location is brilliant - right in the centre of Oslo between the water and the main central shopping areas and attractions. The city is fairly expensive, especially for food and drink, so it's a great help that the breakfast is a buffet and great quality - can really fill up! Wifi is ok, not spectacular. Do take your own... More

We had a great experience here. We had a private room and bathroom, which was only a few dollars extra and well worth it. It was so clean and everything was brand new. More like a budget hotel than a hostel. Comfortable beds, TV, free wifi, complimentary breakfast, and excellent location! Easy to get to from public transportation and close... More

Oslo Hostel Central is very well located, just south of Karl Johans Gate, but far enough from the sketchy area around Oslo Central Station. Like everything in Oslo, is a bit pricey, but totally worth it. Sometimes it feels more like a budget hotel than a hostel, it lacks a bit of an atmosphere or charm.

We stayed in a double room for a couple of nights & it felt more like a cheap hotel than a hostel - we had an ensuite & tv & the bed was comfortable enough. Breakfast & wifi connection were good - there's an option to pay for a takeaway lunch & faster wifi but we didn't need either. The... More

Breakfast is 5 star. Many, many options that you can fill up on. The kitchen is also quite good and if you're lucky someone will leave free food Try shopping at Rema for some cheap meals. There's a snack and drink machine that you can use your credit card at, pretty cool. Good security, excellent cleanliness. Never saw the place... More

This hostel was very expensive, at least for me, but the rooms are good, it is very clean, the staff was extremely helpful (Sara particularly, is very nice!), the location is good and breakfast was good and varied. It doesn't have a great environment, like some party hostels, but it is very good if one wants to rest. If you... More

Booked this hostel for 2 nights in a 4 beds, reception really helpful and understandable, they will always try to help even if most of the time reception is busy. Breakfast is a good value. Location is really good near walking distance from the main attractions of the city (between 10- 20 minutes walking) 15-20 minutes walking from the terminal... More

The place looks amazing, I arrived in Oslo for a night and realized I had an early morning flight at a separate airport with no public transportation to get me there in time. The guy at the desk (Irish guy) understood my situation and helped me flag a cab down and helped negotiate a fair price for me. Huge appreciation... More

I stayed here on 2 separate occasions on my trip to Norway and was very happy. Very clean, cozy, secure place. Showers were very nice and the rooms were great as well. I didn't see much in terms in mingling, but that was ok. It is very centrally located and the breakfast in the morning was a nice touch! Internet... More
