hostel is about 15 minutes on the tram from the city center,on a nice park with a nice view. the bad point is that there are no shops, bars or restaurants anywhere nearby so you have to bring everything with you. no food is sold at the hostel either. the rooms and whole building reek of cigarettes, and the showers were filthy. this hostel is cheap by Oslo standards, but not a bargain by any means.


Great kitchen and good facilites but it is a fair ways out of the city center... it is however close to the metro which makes it not so bad!


It was a bit hard to find and an uphill trek from the city center and bus stop, but other than that, it really was a great place.


Positive: Very clean, nice facilities, exposed brick and hardwood floors in the hallways, lots of information available, vending machines, free breakfast Negative: you have to pay extra for sheets and towels, the location is not in downtown, but there is a tram stop right in front so it wasn't bad at all, 10 minute ride away


Overall excellent hostel. Little out of the way but nice to explore the lovely cuty of Oslo.


Very clean and well set out hostel. Expensive just like the rest of Oslo. Staff weren't overly friendly but they did their job. The free breakfast is very good. Easy to get the metro or tram into town. Shame they charge for bed linen


I have to say I seldom fill review, however, for the hostel I stayed this time, I would love to cause it is really nice! I stayed in many hostels in different cities around the world, Oslo Youth Hostel Haraldsheim is the best one so far. I like it very much! Staff are kind,helpful and professional. They could tell me all the information I need accurately. I appreciate it. The hostel is well-organized. 4 female form is just perfect for me! Overall I enjoyed the stay very much. Highly recommend.


A pretty nice hostel. More like a hotel vibe though. Mostly families stayed there and some older gentleman mistakenly googled 'hostel' instead of hospice and sat in the tv room for hours, waiting to die. The facilites were nice, plenty of space in the bathrooms and showers. There was also a key pad on every floor ensuring that the building was very secure. They supplied free breakfast which was delicious! You also have to pay extra for bed sheets so be aware.


The hostal is great. very good facilities and the breakfast is really good. The only problem is that the postal is located far out from the city center, around 50 min walking.


We had a great stay, although the location was quite far from city center.


Spent a few nights in a quiet time of the year. Everything was super clean and secure and staff was more than happy to help out. There were no extra wows but it was a good standard which you would expect from such a big hostel. And breakfast is fantastic.


I liked the hostel very much: Nice staff, good breakfast, not in the heart of the city but very close by where there are fewer tourists, very clean bathroom. The only thing which in my opinion needs upgrading is the kitchen: It has very nice furniture and enough space but this does not help when there are no knives to cut vegetables with. A few more spoons would have been nice too. By the way: Could you buy reusable tea spoons and egg cups for breakfast? Thank you for a very nice stay with you!
