    We loved this hostel. Comfy beds, fresh sheets, an area to cook in the room which saves a lot of money. Really nice chill out area with books to read, candles and table football to play. I'd recommend this hostel. Good area, felt very safe in this city throughout the whole trip and I love how Norwegians seem respectful and calm. You can't help but leave there and want to take on a little of their culture. Walking distance to the sights. Check out 'Salt' coffee shop near The Opera House, so cozy!

    Really great hostel! Couple of weird things like needing to rent bed sheets and needing to leave a deposit to use kitchen utensils, despite having a kitchen in a private room. Other than that - Great atmosphere, kind staff and perfect location.

    Other than not getting good service in the 2 1/2 hrs it took to check me in, after repeatedly asking the desk clerk if my room was ready without an answer, everything else was as good as that first impression was bad.

    After reading a few reviews I was a little concerned that it might not be particularly nice, but I was pleasantly surprised. The room was good, though I wasn't a fan of the kitchen in the room, or the bathroom as the whole floor got soaked every shower. The staff were super friendly and helpful and the communal areas were perfectly sufficient.

    Very Good

    Cleanness and security are in general good. But quite impressive because the bed sheet is not included in the fee, I have to pay extra for it. It should be written somewhere on the webpage, but I didn’t notice it when I booked this hostel.

    Very Good

    For the money paid for the stay I would have expected the bedding to be included in the price and probably the kitchen utensils too (100NOK deposit for 3hr use) dodgy area as mentioned in previous reviews, but the hostel itself felt safe and the staff were lovely. The hostel was good as a place to stay but overall the price was steep for what you get in return.

    This hostel can charge whatever they want as there is hardly any competition in Oslo! The only good thing about this place is it provides you with a roof over your head. They charge you for everything; if they could charge you for the air they probably would! How can you have a twelve person room with on only two plug sockets; that are on the same side? Charging you for pots and pans? Charging you for linen? 😳 no atmosphere, this was more like a school trip dormitory.

    No lockers in rooms or outlets near beds. Facilities were not ideal. Doors buzzed with a loud ringing each time opened. Staff was pleasant.

    The place was extremely poorly clean and the facilities where rather old I didn't expect the building to be that much of a cripple. The elevator gives you the impression that it's going to fall from minute to minute. Also no noise protection,steps from the hallway are to be heard all the way to your bed,sometimes even with earplugs. Last but not the least, people seem to live the permanently without being very very clean which can be a little annoying to visiotrs. Wouldn't recommend
