I stayed in the 8 bed shared room. It was clean, well maintained, nice staff, central location close to all nightlife places. The things i liked the most is the free wifi throught the hostel, luggage room, the reception which is also like a mini bar/hangout area. People hangout there almost through out the day. It is a bit pricey... More

Since Oslo is an expensive city, we weren't surprised for the price of this hostel. We were surprised though by its conditions... first of all we needed to pay for the bed linen but no sleepingbags we're allowed (?). This was a new one for me, and I've been around a few hostels. The room was a shared one (8beds)... More

Good thing: The price and very well located in Oslo City. Bad Thing: Staff very unfriendly and in a bed mood. Wifi doesn`t work in the room. "Just 5 minutes to drink the water and go" I went back in the Hotel to wait for my friend and I asked the receptionist if I could wait on the lobby for... More

This is probably the best hostel we have stayed at in Europe so far! I was a little concerned when I read the reviews but it was wonderful. We found the staff were nothing but friendly. I played some of the best Uno games with them. They were incredibly helpful and fair. This is the most social hostel we have... More

This place is brilliant, it really is!! The staff were so friendly, and the free wi-fi and tasty coffee were all so welcome in this expensive city. We booked a twin room and while it was basic it was clean, warm, and spacious and had a nice view of Oslo. The location was great, 10 minutes from Oslo train station... More

Staying at the Anker Hostel was really inexpensive when you consider how expensive the area is. The Anker Hostel is a short walk from the main train/bus station downtown and fairly easy to find once you leave the station. The desk personnel were fairly helpful when answering questions and helping you out. The bad is that when you are down... More

I stayed in this hotel with 4 girl-friends, during 4 nights at Easter. We were not as lucky as to have the room in private for the 5 of us any night; we shared every night with different guys, which made the stay a bit uncomfy. The room are not too big for 8, we not plenty of space to... More

Staff were very help, friendly, and accommodating. The hostel itself was odd. They charged for everything they could get out of you (like luggage room, sheets, etc) and the dorm area felt really dingy. The common area was also really small for the number of people staying there. Overall I'd stay there again, but only for the people.

A friend and I stayed here on a weekend trip to Oslo. The room was alright, a bit basic. There was a fridge, but it looked like it was in need of a good scrubbing out. We did have an ensuite, however as the only female in a 6 bed mixed room, having some sort of shelving for toiletries or... More
