4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

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.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

20 minute walk to downtown, terrible wifi, not very helpful staff, very strict about the check in time, required to rent sheets and make bed yourself. Kitchenette and bathroom in most rooms, have to rent all kitchen necessities, no common area. Won't be back

Not a very friendly welcome, took ages to check us in and yes, beware the extra charge for linen. The long list of rules posted in the dorm is a bit over the top too. On the plus side, the beer is relatively cheap!

I was bit worried after reading the reviews but it was good. As compared to general hotel in prices in Norway, our private room for 2 was a bargain. We were advised about the charges in advance through the Expedia and the 70 NOK one off payment regardless of how long you're staying so really not that much for a... More

The positives of this place are that the roof terrace does offer amazing views of the city, and the room is maintained well. Good Wi-Fi. Also, it offers what you paid for. My negatives would be is that it isn't located in the nicest place in Oslo, lots of homeless people in the nearby streets. Also, this isn't a hostel... More

It has been the worst place I have ever been. The staff is not very friendly; you can be there waiting to ask something and they eat, look the computer,...everything instead of helping you. The room: it is not very good cleaned. The worst is the bathroom; there is no separation between the toilet and the shower, it is disgusting.... More

Stayed here as part of a trip around Norway with 7 friends. The hostel is average/low quality in terms of cleanliness, and fairly comfortable beds with kitchenettes in the rooms. However make sure you take account of the fact that they charge you for linen on top of your basic fee. This was 50NOK per stay in our case which... More

After reading many not so good reviews, I still decided to take a chance, just because of the central location and cheaper price compared to other hostels in Oslo. So without repeating too much from other reviews (e.g. pay for bedding and towels) it was ok if you just needed a bed. Perks were the fridge and little kitchenette in... More

Reception level bathroom filthy. Reception staff member who greeted me was rude and barely looked up from his computer to talk to me. The hostel does not get Wifi in the rooms and the rooms were like ovens with no relief from the heat and humidity. Overally priced for what you get considering you must pay for linen even in...

Nice room but pretty rude that they charge extra for linen that is required... they should just include it in the original room price. Clean room, nice beds, not too far from central (we bussed the 2 stops anyway because we had super heavy bags).
