The location of the hostel is amazing (quite central, and close to many nice restaurants and the student life), the staff very friendly and helpful (with tips for food, etc), and everything was very clean. There is a luggage room and valuable lockers can be used. However, be aware that there will be hidden costs in the price of the... More

A 5 minute walk from Oslo central station or you can take a tram which is again 2 stops. The front desk people are very nice and a quick check in. There is an additional charge for bed linens and towel, but it is not charged during the next stay.(if you come back to the hostel after a couple of... More

Toilet and showers in room. Map on reception. Excelent position. Try to reserve parking place, bacause near garage cost ca 30 eur per day. Internet only in public place and not so speed. Inside look like a bunker.

We are Australians and had booked this Anker "Hostel" as it was shown to us on the Net for our family of 4. This turned into a very unpleasant saga when we turned up in our car from Sweden. I booked a family room with what we believed from Internet advertising, was for a Youth Hostel style accommodation for our... More

This is a low budget hostel - and a large one. The facilities are minimum, but it is clean and with modern IKEA furniture. This is absolutely a place to stay for 1-3 nights if you are traveling on a budget, or just like simple amenities (almost none). You can rent kitchen stuff, pots and pans and so on, and... More

This was my first stay at a host and it was an okay experience. The desk clerk was nice but there was a charge for sheets and towel. I was in a room with 8 young ladies. They were very nice but hard to sleep due to fact we all arrived at different times in the late evening making for... More

I had a one night layover in Oslo on the way to Iceland so I decided to stay in the city center at the Anker Hostel. It is fairly close to the train station, the waterfront, and Karl Johans Gate-one of the main shopping streets. I know Scandinavia is expensive, but I expected a bit more value for my money.... More

This isn't really a hostel. Plus points for being cheap (260 NOK = 31.65 EUR) Minus points for kitchens in the rooms, showers being the same room as the bathroom, which gets everything wet and muggy, weird, non-hostel-like guests, unfriendly and direct staff.

They make mistakes with the names and get you out of your bed in the middle of the night. Rats in the nearby area. Toilets are full of dirt and mistreated. Personnel working there are unpleasant and unhelpful. Rooms are really smelly.

This hostel is one of the cheapest accomodation solutions in Oslo. My friends and I booked 4 beds in the 25 people dorm (yes TWENTY FIVE!) last November. The hostel itself is very modern and clean. The white corridors might give you a "hospital" feeling, but for the price offered, I'd rather that than a dirty place. Kitchen is very... More
