Stayed here for one night between trains. I would not like to stay here for much longer than that. There are so many nicer places to stay around Oslo. But if you want a central accommodation cheap (I mean... cheap considering this is Norway...) for a rather short stay this hostel is fine. Positive: Central, good wifi, fairly cheap. Negative:...

Thanks to the reviewers! Having to read most of them, we came to this place prepared with towels and bed linens so we did not have to pay for them. We booked a twin room but we were given a spaciously big four-bedded room with tables and a kitchen. I cannot complain because the bathroom is very clean and the... More

Stayed here for 3 nights when visiting Oslo. Was very happy when we checked in as it was a 4 bed room and we had asked for a twin. There was a table and kitchenette unit, however we didnt use them as you had to rent utensils and we didnt see the point of doing so when we were only... More

The hostel provides affordable but basic accommodation, but nothing more than that. I stayed in an 8 person ensuite dorm. The room which was a good size and comes with a self contained kitchen. However, It's difficult to use the kitchen with people wanting to go to bed and having to stump up a 200kr deposit to use any utensils.... More

I stayed here for 3 weeks, which sounds little crazy. Accommodation in Norway is extremely expensive so there was no choice for me and also it was quite a budget hostel. Good location, most of staffs offered cheerful service (seems one are not happy with her work though). But there were also something I wasn't satisfied with. Shared bath room... More

One of the nicer hostels I've stayed in - it's located in a convenient spot near the city center, natural history museum, and train station, has fairly reliable wifi throughout (including IN THE ROOMS, something I'm finding depressingly rare in hostels), comfortable beds. It's clean and the staff are nice, and they also take credit/debit cards (something else I don't... More

We slept at Anker Hostel three nights. The location of the hotel is ok, 10 min. walk from the central station but in a bad neighborhood. The room are basic, with no place where to lay anything so it is a bit uncomfortable. We couldn't use the kitchen because it's in the room, and we found always people sleeping early... More

The team working there were very friendly and the location of the hostel was really good. I think there could be more information made available for people to access and the facilities in the main lobby need a spruce up. But generally had a very enjoyable stay and will hopefully visit again some time

I read about the hostel where we intended to stay for one night, 3rd September 2014, before going north. No dining kitchen was available as we were told it closed at the end of August although we paid the same price as summer visitors. The hostel was very busy, why can't they open the dining kitchen, people still eat even... More

Prices are 240NOK (for 8 bedded dorm) to 290NOK (for 4 bedded dorm) Positives - Just 10mins walk from Oslo train station, tram station is just across the reception so connectovity is good - Close to Supermarkets Kiwi/Rimi - 24hrs reception and provides Beer (only for 35NOK) even after 8PM as Norway has a strange law that grocery marts can't...
