A lot of things wrong with this hostel but I'll try and keep it brief. Firstly - who brings their own bed linen to a hostel? They charge you another 50NOK for the privilige even if you have a sleeping bag liner. It should just be included in the cost of the night, even if that means raising the price. Secondly, no lockers in the room meaning you have to trudge your valuable downstairs every time. Also there is no air conditioning so in the summer it's so warm you can't sleep. Avoid breakfast

Im happy i just spent one night there. Seriously, overall good location easy to find. But they had both one bathroom and a kitchen IN a room for 8ppl! I mean, it doesnt make sense when youre sharin them with so many people. They charge you for bedlnen and even for utensils and bowls from the shared kitchen. Internet sucks in the room and even in living room, that was frustrating. I paid much less for much more than this in the past. Staff was polite and approachable tho

Kitchenette is located inside your dorm room so it can get quite stuffy because there's no ventilation. Located in a shadier part of town but quite close to the centre still and there is a tram outside. Linen has to be rented which is annoying but pretty standard with Norway, staff were nice.

One of the cheapest in Oslo. Clean and functional private rooms in this huge (!) hostel. Kind and helpful staff. Easy check in and out. Nice to crash for the night, maybe two or three. Fridge and kitchen in the room is a nice touch.

Location for this place isn't too bad, about a 10/15 minute walk from the central station. The rooms (I stayed in 8 bed mixed dorm) were really big and spacious which allowed for a good night sleep and to have some privacy. The en suites were good as were the kitchenette facilities however every time you wanted some kitchen utensils they had to be rented from reception which became a bjt of a hassle going up and down with a box full when all you wanted was a bowl and spoon. Would recommend.

For such expensive prices it's shocking that bedding and a locker are excluded! I stayed in an 8 bed dorm which had one toilet and shower in the same room. The communal area is like an airport waiting area, a cold unsocial place making it hard to socialise. Location is great and the staff are excellent however.

This hostel was not that good as I expected. First they charge you for the bed linen and they do not allow you to use your own sleeping bag (at the end it seems that the only way to use their beds is paying for the bed-linen). Normally in the rest of the hostels in Europe that is obviously included on the price. Another thing is that inside the rooms there were no lockers to leave your things and if you have any valuables you could leave them in some weird lockers they have on the reception.

Very quiet atmosphere, but that's normal for Norway. Located on the other side of the city from the attractions, but there's a tram right outside that takes you to those. Very clean

Nice hostel, close to both bus and train station and with a tramway stop just over the corner.
