As all other reviews would have pointed out... this is not a true hostel/hotel. This is attached to a University Hospital campus and looks like the building hosts the Maternity ward. So I often saw new born babies and new parents.
Obviously the rooms were very clean and neat (the price includes lines and towels as well which is quite good compared to other Norway hostels).
The buffet breakfast was excellent with lot of choices... but what was unique about having breakfast is that I was surrounded by new borns and it was so cute :-)
The only drawback is the distance from city centre... It is not walkable and you have to rely on public transportation (bus route 4) which was probably once in one hour (or may be 2) or Taxis which will charge you atleast 150 NOK.
