It was a great hostel in a good location however I am not sure how safe I felt. Lucky there were some lockers to put my stuff away as the bedroom door was always left unlocked. It was a bit dirty and the kitchen smelt of curry :/ but for 2 nights I was satisfied. It is close to everything, so would definitely reccommend it for a few days to sight see.

Hostel was not clean at all. I stayed in a bedroom downstairs, isolated from the others. Could hear several noises at night like footsteps, flushs of water and music of a nearby club. The atmosphere was very weird, without common spaces.. The location was really good, maybe the best thing about this hostel. Really poor value for the price.


Nice place to book. It is also to be noted one strength of the hotel: it has a kitchen that everyone can use to cook or boil water (especially during winter to get warmer).


Hostel was very close to the station. We were only there one night. Got upgraded to a private twin which was good. It was very basic - bathrooms weren't on every floor, and the general layout of the place was a bit odd. Did have a fridge and a TV in the room though. The curtain in our room was half off! Towels were given. Comfy bed though.


Location is perfect, hostel is safe and rooms are big. One big minus there still is: It smells like someone had smoked in our room for 30 years. Smell was horrible, but everything else was fine at hostel.


Finally! A place with no bunk beds! I could sit up without hitting my head and had plenty of space to stretch and move around. Night stands were great as well (the things people take for granted haha). Great location, easy walk to bars and city center and central station. Good restaurant below it (w/ a hostel guest discount).


Staff were quite helpful. Our group of three asked to be roomed together, and they upgraded us to a 3-person private. I wouldn't count on this though. The wifi and facilities were good, location very close to the main central station in Oslo, which was very helpful for travel. Linen, beds and pillows were very comfortable, an excellent night sleep.


Nice common room/kitchen, but not a place to meet people. Most of the guests seemed older and kept to themselves/their group.


Good hostel location was excellent room was quite big people were nice and the bathrooms and kitchen clean


Not enough lockers.


Great location, nice and close to central station. Kitchen facilities are good however when we were there there were children in the hostel. Makes it hard to cook and be in the living area when there is a chilchild running around especially when you are handling hot food. oms were decently clean, but all shared facilities and some people tended to miss the bowl! Good for a place to crash, dont expect anything else


The hostel has an excellent location in the centre of the city, the staff is really friendly and helpful and the rooms were clean and comfortable.


Very good central location in Oslo. Awesome awesome showers! Not a great atmosphere for meeting people though, and no individual power points per bed. But enjoyable stay!


It's strange we couldn't take hot shower during the first night of stay, maybe it was too late (around 2am i guess?) but the second it was fine. a little smelly when u enter the corridor although we don't know where did it come from. people who stay there aren't youngsters. but extra points for the snooker and table football!


Location is GREAT, close to the train station and everything else in Downtown Oslo. Rooms are OK, no double bunks as far as I know. There is a very limited number of restrooms (2) and showers (2) on third floor, and only one or two showers more on second floor - very small number by comparison to the number of rooms and guests on each floor. I can imagine that it can be a problem when hostel is fully occupied. Very steep stairs and no elevator can be a problem for someone, too.

Ok for the money and for a stay in a hostel. In the centrum of Oslo is nice for shops and get something to eat.

Staff were fantastic! Right near central station which was really helpful. Rooms were massive.


Comfortable bedroom and bed, facilities were pretty clean. The guy in the reception was very very helpful and friendly.
