I stayed for 3 nights which is 3/4 room apartment with people of age group around 45-50. I did not had any problem with their age but they made too much noise all the nights till late night and they started cooking early in the morning 06:00AM.. I had to shout from my room to calm them down. Middle of the night, smoke alarm - ringing for an hour hotel people didnt care, I found that someone living upstairs had just did it by mistake. But I this seems to happen often, Neighbor told.

it is nice to have a separated room and to share the bathroom and the kitchen with others.
The hostel was nice and the location not too bad, however for what you pay you get only the absolute minimum. For everything else you had to pay additional - and a lot!! You pay extra for a pan in your apartment (without you won't be able to cook yourself), for the WiFi (really expensive), car parking, breakfast,... first, our door wouldn't close so we asked for help. the staff was not friendly at all and we didn't feel very welcomed.
Normal hostel for tis money. But it was strange situation: staff sad thet it will be not any extra money, but now it appears freezing at about 180NOK on my card. Maybe it is for cleaning room, or linen, but we clean all after staying. I don't like lies. Thay sad that it will be no extra.
The apartments are big and clean, very useful and nice.
Good price-quality relationship. Only negative point: Wi-fi by payment... 60 NOK per day!!
Great and cheap place to stay in Oslo. I was wary of the apartments when I read some of the other comments on here, but I was pleasantly surprised. The bathrooms could have been a bit cleaner, but apart from that everything was fine. Would definitely recommend.
You can't lock your bedroom door, so if you share an appartement, you can't lock your room. We brought our own bed linen, but they said it is not allowed to bring your own.
Our stay was very pleasant, the apartaments are clean and confortable. It is very close to the metro stop (you have to take it to get to the center) and to the Munch-museum.
The metro is just a few metres away, so it's perfect, but the price is really expansive. Apartments are equipped with kitchen, the use of which is subject to fares.
The room itself was fine. The linen, although you pay for it, is clean. The breakfast, although you pay for it, is amazing as it is the same as the hotel. The apartment layout was weird with some rooms having no windows to the outside, only windows to the kitchen. Bathrooms nice for a hostel but not cleaned everyday. The kitchens have absolutely no utensils/cutlery/washing up liquid. There is no lock on the bedroom door. Great location though! Close to metro and only 1 or 2 stops to centre.
this hostel was a bit of a low point in our trip; it was extremely far away from the centre, in a not well populated suburb, and people at the reception were really rude to us all the time. we had to pay an incredibly high deposit for the room, and cleaning was meant to be paid extra. very disappointed.

They requested additional charge for the sheets, even that is already prepare by ourself.
The apartments had kitchens that were understocked in terms of tools. There was no canopener, no bottle opener, no sponge or detergent to wash the dishes, and no kitchen towels.
The overall experience from this hostel is negative. It is not mentioned anywhere that you have to pay for the bed linen and that it's not allowed to use you own. The room where we lived was supposed to be non-smoking, but it had been a smoking room so it smelled really awful. Also with the key that we used for our basic double, we could open other basic doubles in the same shared appartment. There were some positive things though: friendly stuff and low price. :)
Rooms don't smell good, furniture in the living room is modern and nice but the beds are old and the matress looked terrible - linen was clean though but was not included in the price (as was the towel). Also, it is not a hostel. It is a hotel with some rooms with hostel standards but without the fun atmosphere.
Include the price of renting bedding in your costs. It ridiculous to add it on later! The same goes for renting kitchen equipment. You WILL lose potential guests because of it. The actual room was fine. It was clean. Same goes for the bathroom. You could really do with locks on the bedroom doors. Or at least provide lockers to store stuff. I would remove the word "hostel" from the name. It's definitely not a hostel. More like a hotel with shared kitchen and bathroom facilities.
Man at the desk was unfriendly and clearly didn't want to help/answer questions. He wouldn't even let my girlfriend use a bathroom until 3pm (the check in time). Located in a sketchy/ugly part of Oslo--not much right nearby except a few grocery stores and a sushi place
