We stayed here as a group for a conference. With regards to guests, it does seem to cater for larger work groups, school trips etc. That, with the addition of being a dry (no alcohol) hostel with no bar and a tram/bus away from the city centre, this is not a normal 'youth hostel'. If you plan to travel solo,...

the hostel is bright, and clean. Staff is very friendly. It is a little out of the center at the junction of two main roads but fairly quiet. Still within zone 1 of city transport (ruter) and 15 minutes from main station: tram 17 or bus 31 at least every 10 minutes. Good functional rooms, nice grounds to play and...

Stayed here after going to a concert at Ullevaal Stadium (Springsteen), and enjoyed travelling the opposite direction as all the others (less queue when taking the subway home afterwards). The room was clean and we were offered a packed breakfast when the receptionist realised that we were leaving very early the next day. I would imagine this is a nice...

This hostel is well located with a team line able to easily take you into the city. It seems this is all the hostel has going for it. The rooms are too tiny to move (yet they still thought it was a good idea to stuff a couch and coffee table in), storage lockers are tiny and difficult to get...

The good things about this place are a nearby metro that can take you into town and the breakfast which is really decent for a hostel. Otherwise I'm disappointed. Half of the TV screen was broken, WiFi wasn't great, 1 shower had no lock, one was cold, one had no light. The kitchen was fine yet extremely crowded.

First off there is no lift so you will have to drag your luggage up each flight of stairs. The door to the washroom was broken and would not shut and staff weren't willing to fix it or move me to another room. The light in the washroom also did not work... so basically no washrooms in the room. The...

As you now , Norway is quite expensive country. This hostel is quite comfortable for sleeping at night , pretty clean and new. Breakfast is also not bad. Recommend this place for budget tourist and students . All of the transport is in 5 minutes . There is only one problem - the wifi is working not good.

I stayed there for a week and I am incredibly impressed. The food was great, the rooms were clean, and the staff was always very nice and helpful. Well connected to town via tube, bus, and tram. Strongly recommended!

Aside from the fact that there were no free bed sheets provided, this hostel has it all. Lots of showers, great kitchen, clean rooms, and an amazing continental breakfast. The location is not ideal, needing to take a 10 minute train from the centre, but other than that a great place to stay.
