“Classy Hostel in Central Location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2013

This is a very nice hostel - everything is very new and clean! Central location, a short walk from Oslo S train/bus terminal. The staff were friendly and helpful. I was there during low season, so even though I paid for a dorm spot, I had the whole room to myself!

It is a little pricier than some hostels - but everything is included (linens, towels, breakfast buffet in the morning). Good internet connection available in lounge and rooms.

The self catering kitchen is tiny for such a large hostel, but...oh well!

Room Tip: Pay extra for a room with an "in-room" bathroom/shower...they are nicer.

Honestly the best hostel I have ever been to, the breakfast was amazing, the hostel was clean, the beds are comfortable, and everything is new. Some staff is friendlier than others but everyone are tolerant to your requests.

While traveling in a two-family group this summer, we stayed at this hostel shortly after it opened. It was spotlessly clean, with a very friendly and hard-working staff, a yummy breakfast, and in a super location. The building has been clearly been thoughtfully and lovingly renovated. The manager was visible and helpful in every way. Computer ports everywhere, and free terminals for guest use were in the lobby (which kept the kids entertained during down time). A very nice laundry facility, including complementary detergent. This was some of the best lodging we had during our European tour. Can't recommend highly enough!

Wonderful hostel, as usual, a HI hostel is very clean and and has all things you need when travelling. I stayed in a 4 bed dorm with private bathroom, the bathroom was spic and span, wonderful shower, better than HOTEL showers in some parts of Europe. Wifi was excellent and free, it might be vulnerable to non-guests using it, but the area isn't really that busy. If you don't have a smartphone or a laptop, there are 3 computers in the lobby for you to use, also free. I would stay here again.

However, I didn't notice a noticeboard with activites on it, like in other HI hostels.
