Quite a distance from the central station. They expect you to do half their housekeeping for them and charge you for it (bed linens not provided, they charge you 50 kr for a set). Who brings their own linen when going on a trip??? Kitchenette in kitchen is useless cos you need to 'borrow' utensils and stuff from the reception.... More

Nice facilities. Clean. Best part about it was the location and the price. I'll stay here again, as the prices are very affordable and the location is superb. Getting lost is not a problem--just follow the tram tracks to the train station. In terms of meeting people, this is probably not the best hostel, as the place is huge and... More

This Hostel is well located, you`re able to walk to almost everything, you probably wanna go to. The Staff is extremely friendly and they`ll help you by everything you want to know. The rooms are really nice and big, the only thing, there is just 1 toilet for 8 people. It might be sometimes little bit complicated to go into... More

I picked this hostel purely for the location near bus terminal and central train station, it's still 15 mins walk. it's inside an industrial building with shops and tram stop outside. Bathroom and kitchen inside each dorm room. but the kitchen doesn't have microwave, so it's kinda pointless and the staff doesn't let you to use their one in the... More

Hostel is good. It is clean, you must pay for linen. Rooms are big and bathroom is clean. There is a lot of people. It is near centre maybe 10 min walk. We have 6 bed in room but it was ok because room was very big.

Tage hostel is centrally located which makes it a good base for city exploration. Unfortunately, that asks means it is extremely loud as Hausmann gate a large bus stop is right in front of the building. Staff was friendly and helpful. Apparently, income helps found the adjacent student home. We had a family room for for with kitchenette which worked... More

I was disappointed with my stay here. On arrival you have to pay extra for bedding which seems a bit unnecessary; I've stayed in tons of hostels around the world and bedding is usually included in the price of the bed. The room itself was clean but the bathroom was another story! The shower was also very cramped and wet... More

Very centric, helpful staff, and very nice atmosphere specially for young people. Comfortable beds and quite clean rooms. Not expensive compared to other accommodation options. Breakfast didn't seem to be anything special, shop nearby offers cheap coffee. Next to tram station.

We had a great twin room with a private bathroom. Two very comfortable beds in a secure setting, our bathroom and bedroom floor got cleaned daily which was a plus. The staff were friendly and it was 10 minutes walk from the main street and from the cetnral station. Perfect for a short trip.
