    The hostel itself is very nice, the reception and chill-out area are really cool and there's lots of space to hang out. The center and harbour area are in walking distance. The staff is friendly and helpful. The room was big with a kitchen and bathroom inside, however there were people sleeping in the room at all times of the day so cooking always meant disturbing other people's sleep. Also there was no socket in the bathroom so I had to dry my hair in the room early in the morning...

    The problems were to pay for the bed linen (50) and no lockers inside of the rooms

    The place may look a bit cheap for its price but I had one of my best hostel experiences there. The best aspect is that there is a full kitchen in each room and you can borrow equipment for 3 hours. The layout of the room makes it easy to meet and chat with your roommates. We were able to cook and share food from different cultures while have conversations on all topics. The location is close to the city and a supermarket. Beds are comfy. The heated bathroom floor was great. Greatly enjoyed.

    The Anker is an excellent value and friendly hostel. Perfectly along the river and just a ten-fifteen minute walk from the main train station!

    Location was good, staff were friendly, beer was ...reasonably priced (for Norway) Plenty of people around in the common area, but was a tad quiet, needs some board games / pool table My only complaint would be the bed, it made a lot of noise, enough to keep me awake for a while... everytime I turned or moved the frame made a screeching noise Other than that, was fine

    This felt more like a housing complex, a big housing complex. The area wasn’t terrible but there were definitely some shady characters on the walk to it. Not much of a common area. No plugs in rooms to charge devices. No lockers in room. Lots of things that aren’t ideal. But I wanted to do Norway for cheap. You get what you pay for. Staff were awesome and friendly and there were good people in the hostel. Overall the stay was good. Especially if you want to do Norway cheap.

    This hostel doesn’t have a hostel vibe. The doors are very heavy and seems like a prison rather than a hostel. The reception area has improved from the last time I stayed. It was much nicer with new decorations. I dislike the kitchens inside the rooms. I would suggest a communal kitchen that can be managed from reception (opening/closing), where people can cook and interact. There seemed to be a lot of weird people staying at the hostel. I slept with my valuables.

    This hostel have one different policy with others, which is need to pay for linen and pillow cover, and they noted in the website that most people didn’t aware, like some kind of trick. 8 bed dorm en-suite which is only one shower room and toilet together, really inconvenience. Kitchen in the bedroom! With no amenities (need deposit to get those amenities from reception) what a ridiculous hostel system. This hostel is structured from original apartment unit. Over price to stay, not worth at al

    The staff can be quite rude. There is no atmosphere here. Travelers typically aren’t ready to socialize. Also in a neighborhood that doesn’t feel totally safe at night.
