I stumbled across this place while searching for an affordable place to stay. They had a prepaid web special for $99 per night and, despite the fact the room was really small, I decided the price was more important. For the first night, it was okay. The second day/night were less okay and by the third day/night, I was ready to get out of those cramped quarters. It was actually the bathroom more than anything - there was no counter space for my stuff (had to put the toilet seat down for that) and the shower was barely big enough for me. (I'm 5'4" tall with what I assume is an average wingspan and I had to touch either the wall or the shower curtain for the full duration of every shower!)
Now to the good stuff: the wifi worked well, the breakfast buffet had quite a good selection, and the location is right off Karl Johan Gate & less than 10 minutes to the train station. It was also about a 15-minute walk to the harbor, so easy access to a lot of stuff.
