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!
I would definitely not stay here again. The staff were nice and the location was fine - it is not in the centre of Oslo but several train and bus stations are nearby and are easy to use. The atmosphere was very off-putting: a strange smell hang about the hostel the entire time I was there, the floors and bathrooms were not overly clean and, for some reason, the doors to the male and female bathrooms and showers were always left open. It is hard to believe this was a YHA/HI hostel.
Its about 15 minutes by bus away from anything (ANYTHING) and extremely hard to find. Its a nice hostel, the breakfast is incredible and the kitchen is super well equipped but it seems more like a long stay hostel. After a week in the relatively full hostel I literally didn't meet one other traveller.
