Good central location; felt adequately safe. There were a lot of signs in reception warning about the potential for pickpocketing. Reception was friendly and helpful. There were limited lockers in the lobby (bring your own lock, or provide a deposit to borrow a padlock) for locking up laptops and other small, expensive items. Internet was very slow when I first arrived (but better at 7 am on the morning I left, when fewer people were awake). The bunk bed above me was VERY squeaky.
The hostel was not in a good area so extra security in the hostel would be nice and the hostel lacked any warmth or friendliness. It seems there is nothing else cheaper in Oslo but I think next time I would look at hotels and pay a little more for better facilities, area and staff.
The Hostel is so big, in a good position. The room are ok, just enough and the are fridge and small kithcen inside, which is so good. It is in a good position and the stuff is very kind especially Mr Alfredo, which works at the reception desk, many thanx again for your help.
Next time if I can take my three sons with me, I will stay in your hostel too.
Big place. It's a walking distance from the centre but in a kind of dodge Neighbohood. Some immigrants living there before find their first job. There are not many options in Oslo but I would not stay again.
