    Don't stay here

    Disappointing. Bathrooms and rooms were dirty. No wifi in the rooms. You have to go downstairs (3 floors) for wifi. There are a lot of weird people staying there. Probably the weirdest place I've stayed at. I'm 22 and was the youngest person I met there. Everyone's in their late 50s. The location is very far from downtown. About 1.5 hours by walk or you have to buy a day pass for 10 Euros. The breakfast is disgusting and old and is served from 630 to 930. Who is gonna get up and eat at 9!!!

    Lovely City!

    I felt very safe in Oslo! The city itself was also such a beauty that it was really amazing even to stroll around! There are also a lot of museums that you can visit!

    Insider Tip:The Norwegian Cuisine is definitely a food to die for!

    Very expensive city, buy transport tickets before getting on bus/train/tram. Easy to get around city. Boring city though, not much to see or do.
