I had a really great stay at Anker. I stayed in a female only, 8 bed dorm and met some really cool people. The shower is basic as you'd expect, but it's surprisingly powerful! The staff are really friendly, approachable and helpful. Anker is about a 15 min walk to central station. The number 30 bus stops right outside the hostel which is the bus you need to get to the area Bydoyg where the Viking Ship Museum is etc.

Fairly basic hostel that has all the facilities you need, including kitchen utensils. No lockers in the rooms but you can use the luggage room for free which you have to ask to go into so is safe, I padlocked my suitcase shut too just in case. Staff were very friendly and there is a tram stop right outside the hostel but it is only a 10 minute walk to oslo central station where you can get the metro etc. Overall a good place to sleep when you've spent the day exploring the beautiful city!

Not located in a great location. The hostel had a hospital aesthetic and feel to it, and they made you bring or pay for linens!

Very expensive hostel for what they offer. They force you to rent their bed linens (so you have to pay extra over your booking), the guy from the staff was really unhelpful (can't tell from the rest) and not willing to do any effort, the wifi is really really bad, even in the train that goes to the airport or the supermarkets the internet is faster. I wouldn't recommend staying here, and unfortunately there are not many hostels in Oslo. For that price, better check Airbnb.

Be prepared to spend a lot of money in Olso, and a lot on this hostel too. Not only is this hostel expensive to begin with, if you do not bring your own bed linens (sleeping bags do not count) you either rent theirs at 60 NOK for the stay or pay a 200 NOK fine for not using them. There is no safe space to store your things unless you bring or rent a lock and use a tiny lock box with limited availability. The bathroom was a dingy toilet/shower combo and did not have handsoap.

Bit expensive but reasonable for Oslo. Staff were helpful and pleasant, location is a bit difficult to find and in a bit of a dodgy area but fine nonetheless. Atmosphere was brilliant and very easy to get on with people.

Hostel locates in a very central location. They have good wifi connection both in rooms and reception. Staff is extremely helpful and nice. Only thing is that there are kitchens in the rooms and the room can become smelly easily while your roommate is cooking sth. Oslo is expensive in general, therefore so is hostel prices, but definitely a place to stay if you are in the city for a fee days...
