    A great hostel situated in Oslo's cosmopolitan area, only a short stroll or two tram stops from the city centre and railway station - yet surprisingly quiet at night. Nearby are shops selling very reasonably priced food and drink. We were very pleased with our large en suite private room. The bathroom even had underfloor heating, which was very much appreciated on a wet Oslo day. Highly recommended.

    I had stayed at Anker before. Comfortable walk from the main train station or bus terminal if you are rolling or have a backpack. 6 or 8 roommates needing the bathroom at the same time? That didn't happen. I looked to see if there were facilities on the same floor but found none. There are a number on the ground floor . Luggage and valuables should also be stored on the ground floor. A very comfortable bed. Cooking facilites in room. 1000 NOK for 4 nights. A bargain. Nice roommates.

    Good location. Really cheap for Oslo. Socially not huge space for chilling but there is a bar and seating area. Overall hostels in Oslo are limited so this is probably the best you can get for the price.

    I've been in a single room. It's OK, no so much noise and not so much dirty. You have to pay if you don't bring bedlinen. The location is perfect, really close to the center. If you came with car you have a parking downt to the hostel 280NOK per day.
