I stayed here with a large group, and enjoyed the great location and price. However, their customer service went above and beyond. They were incredibly helpful in providing directions (and even advice and tips for navigating the Norwegian health care service after I got a bad ear infection), and BEST OF ALL: after I left my jacket and scarf in...

This hostel had a great location. Just 2 tram stops from Oslo train station. But the rooms and especially the bathrooms were not in very nice condition. But I guess, you get what you paid for. To Norway standards, it is very cheap.

Well situated, 15 minute easy walk from the central station. Room clean, bed OK, wc/shower and usually a little kitchen in the room even for the cheapest rooms. Not noisy. Staff nice, speaks English well. Wifi OK, sometimes slow, because so many people are using it for the same time. Have to bring your own bedsheets or you have to... More

I with my two friends stayed in this hostel for a night. This is among the cheapest hostel you can find in the Norway. The staff were nice and helpful. The room was nice and good enough. But you have to pay extra for bed linen if you don't have one.

This was the cheapest hostel I could find (it's cheap for Norway), so I didn't expect much. The staff was very nice and the room was okay, but I really didn't like that the linen costs extra. If you don't mind somewhere very cheap and basic to stay, Anker is alright :)

Pros: Good Wi-Fi, useful location - walking distance from main train station (i went by foot to the port as well, it's 10 more minutes), secure metal doors. Cons: Neighborhood is a bit creepy, no kitchen (at list i couldn't find one), very big hostel (several floors) with relatively small lobby, queue in the reception around 15-16 - lots of... More

The rooms were a decent size and were kept relatively clean. The beds were average size and quality but you had to either have your own sheets or buy mandatory linens for 50kr from the reception. There was a stove/oven and small fridge with lots of adjacent cupboards but absolutely no cooking supplies- not even utensils, never mind pots and... More

Pretty much the only hostel in Oslo and therefore affordable haha. It's quite nice, we had our own room and bathroom, clean and basic but nice :) Wifi works in the rooms which is a bonus. Like most places you have to pay for linen. Located in a good area, 25min walk to centre, but close to the cool 'hipster'... More

The hostel is not too far away from the city centre (15/20mins walking), with some restaurants and food shops around. The room were tidy and clean and quiet. Breakfast not included. Good value for money. We'd come back again.

I do not recommend staying there. There are so many things i didnt like about it, i can only say i had a couple more nights booked there and i cancelled. The only good thing about it is that the dorm i slept in the fist couple of days was pretty decent, with toilet/shower in the room. What i didnt... More
