    Our stay was very traumatic as my sister became seriously ill within an hour of arriving at the Hostel. Staff were incredibly helpful and supportive. Couldn’t have been in a better place when coping with such a tragic event.

    Really simple but comfortable enough place. Kitchenette in the room was great (fridge, oven, sink, table). Tiny bathrooms and shower space with a curtain and no fan, so the bathroom would fog up. Gap between top bunk bed mattress and the wall, so difficult to keep items up by your bedside (phone and blanket fall down the gap). No individual lamp or power socket by each bed. Strong wifi and cosy reception/lounge area. There is no rooftop bar.

    Very Good

    Everything in Norway is expensive for what it is but that's just how it is. The rooms did not have any lockers (something I look for) and the kitchen is in the room itself which I thought was weird (you feel uncomfortable cooking breakfast while people are sleeping). We had great people in our room, talkative and funny so our atmosphere was great.

    Good hostel. Small kitchen and bathrooms in each dorm which is good. No lockers in your room though and you have to pay extra for sheets.

    The hostel was basic but fine. The location was okay in some parts but the walk from the station to the hostel was horrible and felt really unsafe - I wish we had been warned of that so we would have known it was safer to get a taxi or a tram. We instead ended up walking through crowds of drug users that were dropping syringes all over the place. The room was basic and suited us okay as we were only using the hostel to sleep. Staff were lovey when we came in contact with them.

    I arrived late, around 23 hs on a Saturday night, when I came to my room, everyone was sleeping so I tried not to make much noise putting the bed sheets in the dark. By the way for the sheets you need to pay extra as they are not included with your accommodation. The bathroom was okayish, considering that there are 8 people in that room. There are no showers outside that one shower for 8 people, so be ready to wait in the morning. No lockers in the room, only tiny ones in the reception.

    This is by far the worst hostel I have ever stayed in. Firstly you have to pay extra for bedsheets? Just include it in the price like a decent and honest business would do. The kitchen and toilet are INSIDE the room where you sleep. The shower is not separated from the toilet which means water gets everywhere and the toilet is completely damp. Allowing someone to cook in a TINY room of 8 people is ridiculous. Someone was frying fish at 10pm - what the hell is that? Worst hostel ever, good area
