For a hostel, this was perfect. The room was clean and not too cramped. We could leave our bags safely when we arrived before check-in time. The wifi was good. We didn't bring linen so had to rent but it wasn't expensive. The staff were very helpful and friendly

It is my very first time to stay in a hostel. We booked here because we knew Oslo is a very expensive city. Location is very strategic. Walking distance to tram and to the city center and there is a convenient store nearby. Dont expect to much because this is a hostel. You have to rent for your bed sheets... More

This hostel is affordable being situated in Oslo, an expensive city. We were 4 persons in two rooms; one room was bigger and there were 4 beds in one of them. There is a fridge and a small cooking facility but no pots, pans, plates or cups! The rooms were not very clean. WiFi is slow. The bathroom is small... More

This hostel is not anything special when compared with others in Europe however im aware there is very little choice in Oslo and I don't know how it compares with others in Norway. The good points- This hostel has a great location, very central and close to many bars and restaurants. Also within walking distance of the botanical gardens and... More

The rooms were comfortable enough and the bathroom was basic, but all we needed for a 2 night stay. There is a kitchen in the room, but it was annoying to go downstairs and put a deposit down in order to use utensils. The wifi didn't work in the rooms but was very good in the lobby. Staff were nice.

For our spontaneous trip to Oslo for 1 night me and my 3 friends chose to stay in this amazing Hostel. I would say it was more like a hotel. Staff were friendly and pleasant. The rooms were brilliant, clean, beds extremely comfortable and the shower was heaven. The only fault I would say is that our window wouldn't open... More

We stayed one night at the Anker Hostel, in a private twin room with bathroom. The hostel is not far from the town centre, close to a tram stop. The area may be a bit worrying at first, but there are lots of shops and small supermarkets. Pros: the price (it's the main and only reason to go there). There... More

Most probably the cheapest place to stay in Oslo at 250 kr per night in a 6-bed dorm. The rooms are quite airy and spacious and the beds comfortable. However, it has some major flaws which come up over and over again in reviews for this hostel and I wonder why they are not fixed. For starters, the kitchen is... More
