I cant complain about anything. we got little apartment with sufficient kithen and big bathroom. not far from the station, when you dont get turned around like I did. and staff in nice and helpful. but bit distant. well it is a hotel without an s.


Room was teeny tiny but all was clean and warm inside with a kitchen you can use so was perfectly fine for a short stay. It's very centrally located too which was great.

There was a problem with the cards that open the doors which caused quite an unconvenience. Otherwise the hostel is good. A toaster would be useful in the kitchen. The hostel is about 2 km away of the Oslo Central station and the city centre.


Extremely disappointed with the service offered. We arrived late on Friday night and they charged us basically what we paid for three nights for one night. I wish I had just offered to sleep on the couches. The rooms looked nothing like the pictures online. There were no hand towels so the other person living in the apartment used all the toilet paper for drying his hands. This hostel is linked to a Best Western which gives it a bad taste in my mouth, after always staying at that hotel as a kid


an amazing place to live, great rooms and toilet, very safe, great neighborhood. only downside is paid WIFI.


For the price you get a really nice room with your own bathroom, small kitchen and a tv.

Hotel Staff are extremely nice and helpful. In particular, a man called Bala (working on Sunday) went out of his way to make sure we were okay even after we checked out to ensure we caught the flight - great customer service! The Hotel also has a taxi machine within the lounge, so you can get around the station, and Oslo central station is two stops away from the Toyen Metro only (1-3 minutes walk from the hotel). Good customer service, good location, easy to commute, and worth it's pay!

The best hostel I've ever been. I booked a 7-bed shared room or alike, expecting a dormitory, but I got a private room. Only the kitchen, living room


Me and my friend were arranged in an apartment-like room with a living room, a toilet and 4 rooms, and we lived in one of the rooms. Initially there was only one single pot in the kitchen and we couldn't cook our food! Also, the only socket in our room was near the ceiling that a normal adult couldn't reach that height. One more thing is that the hostel was quite far from the city centre (about 25 minutes walk), not a good choice if you don't want to walk for so long.


Very nice hostel. A really great place to stay in Oslo.


If you want to stay in private, this is the place for you. For those who are looking for place to meet people and have fun - not here. This property is more like a hotel than hostel and the equipment of rooms look acordingly. It has a poor kitchen facilities, no toaster, no ellectric kettle, internet for 60NOK a day... Since we wanted just oversleep for 1 night, neither of those weren't an issue. But if you want to stay longer, think it through.


WiFi is not free. There is 60Kr per day charge and is BAD. Kitchen lacks adequate utensils. There is only 1 pot, 1 soup spoon, 1 fork and knife, 2 dishes & 2 bowls. Inadequate kitchen supplies. No hand soap is provided. The night staff an Indian man does not speak fluent English and does not even know where near supermarket is. He send me to a 3 bus stops, + walk one, when there were 2 across the street near train station. Unable to regulate excessive heat and lacks natural light.

It looks more like a hotel that is transitioning for some reason to a hostel, so the rooms kind of look like a mix of hotel / hostel. We stayed in an "apartment" which had 4 rooms and its own kitchen so there is no common room, a pity... There weren't pots enough to cook, cutlery, dishes and the main door had a faulty lock (so we were basically leaving the door unlocked and locking our room). The reception has a reasonable staff that give you directions about whatever you ask, what was great.


We stayed for four days for New Years 2015 an spent amazing time there! Staff was helpful, we paid for internet but then the speed was pretty good! The bathroom had floor heating, there was always hot water and was very clean! Toyen station for metro is 5 min walk and a perfect way to get arround Oslo! Will return again for sure!! :-) I reccomed it to everyone

We were very surprised arriving at the hostel given that other reviews were very negative - it was far nicer and more comfortable than expected, more like a hotel than a hostel, it's really not a long walk to the city centre and for Oslo prices it's extremely decent! We were able to cook in our room which was a massive plus as eating out is seriously expensive. Staff were very helpful. Would definitely recommend.
