Extremely disappointing stay

My room mate had her laptop stolen from her pack in our dorm as the cleaner of the hostel had left both the door to the dorms and our dorm room wide open. Someone was then able to access our dorm and steal the computer while the cleaner was still in the room. There were no lockers in the dorms and it was a possibility that the cleaner knew the thief. The receptionist wasn't particularly helpful when we went to report the incident. Not the best hostel experience unfortunately.

Good Hostel, not particularly friendly but nice and clean; quite expensive like all the city


54%

The Hostel is a decent price for location and is clean enough. However, it is geared more towards a single traveler who is sight seeing not some one who wants to meet people while your there, the setup does not facilitate that very much. Plus the atmosphere for that is not there. The Rooms are clean enough and it does have a small kitchen in each room with a stove and sink, I was in the 4 bed dorm. Bang for buck not bad. Staff could be happier, they are polite though.

Fire alarm went off in the early hours on the morning BOTH nights I stayed there. Fair to say I wasn't overly impressed.

Nice hostel, location is a little remote from city center and train station but once you get to know Oslo it's quite convinient to find (bus and tram stop right out of the door). Staff works 24/7 even during Xmas and new year which is extra nice for holiday travellers. Rooms are warm enough even during winter and facilities are handy.

The hostel is in quite a dodgy area with prostitutes and drug dealers (we have been offered heroin). There are no lockers in the rooms, no common kitchen and the kitchenette (which is really very basic) in the room is too small if there are actually 8 people in the room. It was freezing cold in our room and in the lobby and we all got ill; internet in the rooms is basically not existent, there is no living room, only the lobby which was quite chilly, some staff do not speak English.

The location of the hostel is ok, though it tends to be on the other side of downtown. The public space is poorly designed and the furniture appears to a bit dusty. The biggest problem is the shower, which drowns the whole bathroom every time. The socket is not close to the bed.

The staff are nice. But the luggage room is not that security.

You have to pay an extra for bed sheets, that's around 5€. It wasn't clearly specified in the website.

The kitchen and other facilities are in the bedrooms. We arrived late and everybody was sleeping so we couldn't cook anything there! There is no common kitchen or living room a part from that one, only two sofas in the reception hall. It was so dirty.

I was very hesitant to stay here based on some of the reviews but it was honestly a great hostel. I could walk everywhere and the place was very clean with super helpful front desk staff. It's an expensive stay as far as hostels go but if you're travelling to Norway you need to prepare for everything to cost a bit more than you are used to. I was only here for 1 night in the off season.

This has to be one if my least liked hostel stays ever. The hostel is in a bad area as at ugly there are loads of drug peddlers

Fine hostel, no where near as bad as the other reviews made it sound. Can be a little loud as sound seems to carry, so bring ear plugs if you are a light sleeper. Fine if you're only staying a night or two in Oslo.

it was nice, but there was a really poor communal area- there needs to be a big kitchen on the ground floor where people can cook together and meet each other- cooking by yourself in your dorm is no fun! but aside from that it was all reasonably nice
