    We had a lovely stay! The room was clean and the beds were comfy. We slept very well. The location is walking distance from the sites.

    I spent a very nice time at Anker hostel! Ideally located, kind staff, a great rooftop terrace as well. The lounge is not really welcoming, so it’s not very cosy and easy to meet people. Maybe on the terrace when the weather will be more summary! But overall great value for money in Oslo, and would definitely go back!

    The kitchenette made budgeting in Norway easier and the reception staff were lovely! Only downside is the reception/communal area shuts at 7 so it's not really a hostel to meet people if you're a solo traveller.

    Really can't say anything negative. It's probably not the most beautiful hostel but it is very very convenient, has everything you need and the staff is supernice. I just wouldn't recommend to go outside on your own at night - the neighborhood seems a bit sketchy. I didn't know on my first evening and was a little bit irritated.

    The hotel is in a good location, walking distance to the center. The staff was nice and helpful. But the numbers were not great organized as hostel rooms. And it did not feel like hostel atmosphere, more like hotels or apartments. But in general was good.

    This hostel is extremely overpriced. I don't know how I didn't realize when I booked it but somehow when I got the charge I was shocked. The bedding was clean, but the pillows and comforters clearly were not (hair that did not belong to anyone in our party on multiple pillows). However the bathroom had heated floors, which was incredible.

    Staff was very kind and helpful, but the building did not have a great feel to it, corridors and space was very dull. Room size was fine and beds were okay, but not clean enough when we came in. There were a couple of dead cockroaches in the bathroom, and we killed a live one as well.

    I stayed in 4 cities in February, but Anker was definitely the most expensive. It was also the worst. The common area is basically non-existent, just a hotel lobby with a foosball table. I had to get a private room since they were booked, so I had my own bathroom, and kitchen. But the kitchen had no pots/pans, and the bathroom had no soap. I'm not expecting 5* amenities, but who buys pots and pans to use at a hostel/hotel. It didn't have the amenities of a hotel, or the social aspect of a Hostel
