Overview

Welcome to Anker Hostel, which you'll find just 10 minutes’ walk from Karl Johan, Oslo’s busy main street. It's Scandi-bright and the friendly staff at our reception are on 24-hour duty to welcome you, so there’s no need to worry about late flights or delayed trains. If you're bringing your own ride, you can leave it safely in our large parking garage. Once you’ve offloaded your bags in one of the secure lockers or dedicated luggage room, grab a free city map and strike out to explore. Though you might prefer to ease into things with a drink in the lobby bar (we’ve got our priorities straight).

Location

We’re easy to get to, so you won't have any long walks with your luggage. The hostel is seven minutes’ walk from Oslo's bus terminal and the same distance to Oslo Central Train Station. Express trains take 20 minutes to arrive here from the airport. Surrounded by the hip Grünerløkka neighbourhood, Anker Hostel is a great base for soaking up Oslo's laid-back culture. You can sip cocktails in minimalist bars and discover hidden cafés and restaurants. Or window shop your way around the city's chic boutiques.

Rooms and Dorms

We’ve got a wide choice of rooms, from same-sex dorms to singles and twins, all of which have private bathrooms and toilets. Remember to pick up your free duvet and pillow: you can rent sheets and towels from reception before you head up. Rooms are fresh and modern, with shelves where you can stow your stuff and writing desks for planning itineraries or getting your postcards done.

Extras and activities

Take the chance to rest up with other travellers on our roof terrace: the views across Oslo are spectacular. There’s free Wi-Fi throughout our hostel so your favourite social platforms need never be neglected. When you get peckish grab a snack and hot drink from our café, or knock up something more substantial in the kitchen. The on-site laundry will help keep your gear ship shape.

    Superb

    I came on the 8th March and was supposed to check out on the 22nd March. I had come to Oslo to do work experience at Maaemo kitchen. Due to the sudden outbreak of corona virus, the restaurant was closed. I had to cut my visit to Oslo short and depart back to my home country of England. I notified the receptionist, but I was informed that I could not get a refund on the 7 days which I could not stay in the hostel due to circumstances out of my control. I find this to be unfair.

    Fabulous

    My friends and I (1 girl and 2 guys in total) stayed in this hostel for a weekend. At first we were very skeptical with all the reviews about what seemed to be a dangerous area full of drug addicts and whatnot but we still went through with our reservation. Every single thing the negative reviews talked about was wrong. The druggies, criminals, rapers or whatever these people mentioned were nowhere to be found. The people in the reception were nice and helpful. The facilities were alright.

    nice hostel for a good price. the only thing that I didn't like is that the kitchens are inside the rooms... And you also have to go every time to reception to take the things to cook.

    We had a 6-person room just for us 2 so there was lots of space. There was a small kitchen in the room which was useful. Very clean hostel and helpful staff. Fridge in the room wasn't very cool and we wish there had been a mirror in the room.

    Very Good

    14 Feb 2020
    Anker was a good hostel. you had to pay for sheets and towels and you had a kitchen in your room so there weren’t a ton of ways to meet people. the only thing that i didn’t like was that the area was SUPER sketchy—like the only sketchy part in oslo. they were doing construction on the main road and lots of drug deals and people on drugs would hang out on this road so walking at night or in the morning was very sketchy.

    Good

    The hostel itself was modern and clean. People who left previous reviews weren’t kidding saying that there were a lot of drug addicts nearby. You can go a different route or the other side of the street and avoid them, they don’t bother you. Bit weird you have to rent linens but I brought my own. Mattresses good but bed frames lacking. Go to the hotel next door for a proper breakfast. Also lads - please remember to shower and put away your dirty clothes, you stink.
