Rooms are spacious and clean. Location is great with buses and trams nearby. Walking to the Oslo Central Station is possible though with an Oslo Pass we took a bus. However, there is no kettle in the room and the coffee machine at the reception was out of order. Laundry is far away, but it is not a big deal.

Despite it's well located in terms of closeness to the central station, the neighborhood is terrible. I felt insecure and even the hostel staff warn you about this. The staff was not so helpful. My room was ok, it was clean, but they overpromise when talking about the kitchen you have in the room and that it's an advantage the... More

I stayed in a private room which could accommodate 2 people. Private bathroom was a manageable size but clean. Very quiet but the sunrise in the summer months might wake you up earlier than usual. Make sure to bring your own bedsheets, p cases and towels.... as well as the toiletries!!

The room was spacious with a mini kitchenette but you'd have to rent out everything along with the beddings and towel. We were woken up by the fire alarm at 4AM! It wasn't resolved until an hour or so later. That was not a good experience at all!!

Comfortable bed and spacious room. Unlike some hostels, they only provide free lockers in the lobby and you have to pay foe linens and sheets should you need to rent from them. Within walking distance to city centre, palace and most tourist attractions. It's also close to the central train station where you can get to the airport and many... More

I booked this hostel because it was the cheapest available with decent reviews and a good location. Pros: It was clean and quiet. The location was good, a short walk to city center and very close to good Middle Eastern and Indian food. Wifi works well. Cons: They wouldn't allow anyone to check in until 3 pm, regardless of it...

The hostel is located 15-minute walk from the Oslo Train Station; there is also a tram and a bus stop next to the hostel. I stayed in a comfortable 4-bed room with a bathroom (shower) and a kitchen unit. It was clean and tidy. I had free access to WiFi. However there were some weak points: absolutely no glasses, cutlery,... More

Just about 10 minutes walk from the centre. A lot of reviews mention the area in a negative way, but I think it depends on where you're from or where you've travelled before. Sure it was a little less shiny and sparkly than the centre, but I didn't feel unsafe at all walking around at night as a solo female... More
