Stayed Mid may 2012
Hostel was ok. Clean, fresh sheets. There are kitchens in the rooms (which I liked) but you needed to rent a cooking kit - now you got your money back but you could only rent for a few hours otherwise you lose your deposit and they had limited supply of kitchen boxes.
Not a very social hostel although they do have a foozeball table in the lobby and they serve beer etc. (which I also liked because it was alot cheaper than bars in the area).
One thing is that they don't have lockers, I think all hostels should have lockers in your room. They had small lockers downstairs for valuables (provide your own lock). Wifi was good in the lobby but we couldn't get it in our room, we were a few levels up.
Not in the nicest area kind of reminds me of a ghetto a little bit.
I was there for national day (17th may) which was good fun but just beware everything is expensive in Oslo - hostels, food, shopping, maccas and especially alcohol! I paid almost 80$ Australian for a litre of Smirnoff!
I wouldn't mind staying here again but i would look around at others as well.
