This was by far the most I've paid for one of the least pleasant hostel experiences, very spartan bathroom shared among 8 people, pay extra for linens, staff is useless and unfriendly; location is rather convenient, a mere 10-minute walk to the central station and within reasonable walking distance to most sights in Oslo, though the neighborhood may seem a bit dodgy at first

The staff were very helpful and the location is just awesome! The hostel was just as advertised on Hostelworld.com. I think I have found myself a place to stay whenever I am in Oslo!

Huge hostel. All ages. Only stayed one night so I can't speak much to the social aspects of the place, but it got the job done.

Excellent value in the context of an expensive city. However, very odd that a fee applies to bed linen, something I've never previously seen.

Not a bad hostel. Cheap for norway and location is fairly central (very close to the train station). Staff were pretty surly though- a smile won't kill you!

Close to the city center but in not so great neighborhood . Rather strange set up, poor in facilities. Staff are nice. Lack of atmosphere.

The negative aspects include having to pay for sheets and morning coffee. Most places include these in the price. The price was already high enough. The fridges in rooms need better systems. People should be asked to write their names so others know they can throw away old moldy food. The area of town is not something the hostel can change. Many dodgy suspect looking homeless and drug infected people.

Not in the nicest part of town, but you can walk to the train station and there's a bus stop and tram right outdoors.

They charge guests for luggage storage if locker has to be used. There is no locker in room. Cooking utensils have to be borrowed against a deposit, which is a bit troublesome. Other things are fine.

The location is quite good,it is only 10 mnts walk from city centre. it is quite expensive hostel to what they offer,although Oslo is incredibly expensive. One of the female stuff was very nice and full of Information, some others,in particular one of them,she was quite rude with us. The stuff don't give you much info in general,you need to drag the info out of them,it is a quite annoying. Value for money is quite poor,but it is the cheapest we could find in Oslo.

there was actually a fire during my stay! not the hostel's fault though. they got everything under control. but just thought the staff could have handled the situation more professionally/efficiently. 270NOK for a night is definitely more expensive in relative to most hostels, however this is one of the cheapest in oslo. a proper hostel i would say. have all the necessity. but nothing more nothing less.

The neighborhood was very sketchy, although relatively central, and the wifi connection was miserably weak. A bunch of gypsies strolled down the street quite often. The room, however, was clean enough and had its own kitchen, which you could use with the kitchenette that you pay deposit to borrow. It was okay at best.

When we arrived our room was overbooked in Anker Hostel. So we stayed the night in Anker Hotel. The sink wasn't working really good in our room. The water was running down on the floor. It was very handy that there was a storage room for our luggage.

nice hostel. well located and very professional. the hostel is very good but they charge for bed linen and breakfast, For the price that is paid, it would be fair if this facilities were included.
