Cramped room with the bed wedged under a sloping ceiling with no room either side to get in or out so you had to crawl up from the foot end, taking care not to hit your head! Shower in the room with clear glass door so you'd be a spectator sport for your roomie, tiny toilet which anyone over 5'5 would have to sit on sideways as there was so little leg room. A kettle, but no mugs and no access to teabags or milk as everything in the kitchen was padlocked, but a fridge and basket full of drinks and snacks at exorbitant prices. It was hot and stuffy in the room so difficult to sleep. Breakfast was extra and served in the kitchen where there was a table seating 6 people and a bar for 3. Everyone else had to eat outside wrapped up in coats and scarves. Not my idea of breakfast!
They gave us no information about how to get there from the station so we had to take a taxi, but going back we found a tram right outside that went straight there. We were due to stay there again before leaving Norway but cancelled as we had had such a disappointing stay.
