Pretty nice place, only two stations with metro from the main station and bus terminal. Well located, secure, clean and they have a nice kitchen so you can save money cooking at home (Oslo is an expensive city).

A twenty minute wall to the city centre, recently renovated rooms and the reasonable cost make this apartment worthwhile BUT be warned: if you stay in a two bed apartment with shared facilities, one of the bedrooms does not have complete privacy/soundproofing. There is a 40cm gap running along the top of the wall to the kitchen which means you can hear everything going on. Luckily the other bedroom was unoccupied while we stated otherwise it would have been very uncomfortable.


This is a very good hostel. It is part of a complex, which includes a regular hotel. It is near to public transport and it is priced well for this expensive place called Oslo. Breakfast was good value and can set you up for the day. There was some confusion about the payment of breakfast. This could be made clearer.


Nice rooms but a very small kitchen, slippery bathroom and no free wifi. Staff were very helpful though.


We had a problem: the person who did our check in, made it wrong! We couldn't get in the apartment the other day, and i was already tired and had to solve this with another person (this time a woman who was very kind, unlike the blond man the day before) . Our reservation was "Basic 2 Bed Apartment Shared Bathroom", so we understood that the apartment was for two people and the bathroom shared, but the apt had 8 beds together and when we was almost sleeping a couple showed up. Not pleasant.


We had a great stay here, there were four of us. I wouldn't walk to and from the city center but there is a very close station and only two stops from the center. Room was great we could even cook which saved us a lot. Only things is when you have a shower the whole floor in the bathroom floods. Would stay again and recommend to others :)

Fine for a cheap night in Oslo. No big plus, no big minus


The place was very dirty , very noisy ,wait in the queue for a very long time to talk to somebody in the reception.

We paid for 2 people, there was only one pillow (we were given another pillow when told) and a supposedly double bed (not even the width of two pillows side by side). The room was tiny absolutely no room for manoeuvre.


No washing machine, kitchen was not well equiped ( there was neither pans, dish soap nor basic equipment as salt or oil)


Expensive wi fi fee. 60 NOK per 24 hour! Fault fire alarm. alarm every night! very very hot room. very very poor kitchen. no salt. no oil. no detergent. no luffa. I washed dish by toilet soap! Maybe this hostel's owner is exploiting capitalist!


Great place and great staff 10/10
