This was the first stop of my husbands and i 3 month trip! We didnt have high expectations, especially me who just cares about cleanliness, but after walking through the slightly smelly hallways from all the cooking in the rooms, we were pleasantly suprised to enter a very secure and clean room. The rooms were very basic but this is... More

We stayed for 3 nights and it was perfect for us! It was a reasonable price for Oslo, we had a twin room, clean, warm with a nice hot shower and an area to cook. We were mostly out doing things so the location is really good and central. We found it easily from the bus station which is 10min... More

We visited Oslo for a couple of days, and found the hostel to be very nice and accommodating, although our room and the worst shower ever to be conceived. Though, for the price paid it was all good. One thing that should be taken in account is having to take your own linens, or else you'll have to pay.

I chose this option because it is economical. In many ways the hostel does what it says: It's friendly, close to the city centre and the central station (both within walking distance, even with luggage). It is adequate, in a sense that it's a no-frill offer. It's quite clean, offers kitchen utensils if you want to cook in your room... More

We stayed the Anker Hotel which is next to hostel. It takes 10mins by walk from the Oslo central station. The room is average, no refrigerator,hairdryer,shampoo but soap. A kettle if you need is available at the front desk. If you do not want to walk from station, you had better stay others. Such as Radisson Ble Plaza Hotel.Oslo.

I stayed there only one night before travelling to trondheim. The hostel isnt great but it isnt bat either. The elevator has no actual door seperating the cabin with the tube. The shower has nothing to stop the water from flowing to other parts of the bathroom (after showering you have to mop). Also the toilet was next to the... More

A huge variety in rooms and dorms to choose from. Dorms have a shower and a small kitchenette inside as well. There is a nice lounge area and bar at the reception where one can just hang out and meet new people. I also do not recommend paying the NOK 60 for breakfast, as it is in the city centre... More

A functional place - cleanliness is average, no atmosphere and not really nice. There is no common room, only a lobby area. The location is interesting, it seems to be a dodgy area. Our room was in the staircase and it was freezing cold during our stay. The WiFi in the rooms hardly ever worked. The only positive thing: for... More

The location of the hostel is good (every Oslo main attraction is in a walking distance) and the price is reasonable (even if they make you pay for the bed linen 50NOK!). Quite an international atmosphere, so it's very easy to meet people in there if you're a solo traveler.
