It is one of very few hostels in Oslo and that's why so many people stay there. Besides its price, which, for Norway, is quite alright, the hostel doesn't have much to offer. Our room was not clean at all, there are no lockers for you to keep your stuff and in general it didn't feel welcoming at all. I...

The staff was excellent and very welcoming, the hostel is centrally located (but in a bad neighbourhood, didn't feel safe at all to walk around there after dark), the room I stayed in (private 2 bed room) was spacious and clean, you have to rent the bed linen separately (and towels) and the shower was a bit weird: After I...

I needed to stay one night in Oslo urgently. I booked for 20 pounds a night in this hostel. My surprise was to be alone in one 8 room capacity. It was good to pay that and be alone. The quality of the building is not the best, but the treatment received by the staff was really good. I recommend...

I stayed here for 3 nights. The location is very convenient, 10 minutes walking from Oslo S (central station), public transportation just outside the door. I stayed in a 8 bed room; the bathroom is shared only with those staying in the same room. The room is equipped with a mini fridge and electric cooker to share with your roommates....

I booked a bunk there just of budget reason... location is ok, some 10 min walk from central station. The Hostel is quite new,but the rooms are small for 8 persons with luggage. Shower on the room and small galley as well... not to practical. No locker, whacky basic bunks and few sockets made for a poor general impression. And...

Fine room for us (family of 4). Wifi ok. The supermarket in the hostel is really practical and the neighbourhood has a good choice of restaurants nearby. I also liked the bathroom with good floorheating. Pitty that beds don't have individual lights. Corridors feel like a hospital. Security is OK.

Not the best but not the worst place I stayed. I didn't like the fact that the shower in the room was too tight and you'd get the entire room wet if you used it. But there's not many optins in Oslo, so it's a place to stay. The beds were comfortable. The staff were helpful. Nothing more to say.

Nice rooms, but probalbly the most unpolite and unprofessial staff I ever have encountered. Defintively everything else than helpful and should not work at a hotel but at communal institutions or in prisons. We were shocked by the female receptionsts repeated unpoliteness and have never experienced anything near this exept from at the cheapest and dirtiest crack-house hotel in Ohio....

Frankly speaking, I would not repeat my stay over there. Even though that is one of the cheapest hostels around Oslo, the hostel has several disadvantages, There are not enough big lockers for the clients, you can not cook after 10 pm, and the ceramic glass did not work properly. It took me like an hour to prepare some rice......
