    A great place to stay in Oslo, just a fifteen minute walk from the central station. Sparkling clean, modern rooms equipped with mini fridge, sink and stove, and your own modern bathroom. Only negative was that it was quite pricy for a hostel, but aside from that I would definitely stay there again.

    Solid hostel, nice small 4-bed rooms. Bathroom was clean enough, the room generally felt clean. Nice rooftop with picnic tables, it's just not the most social hostel. Minimal common rooms, no activities, etc. I would stay again though, great location.

    The hostel is clean and well positioned, they provide towels and there is a kitchen in the dormitory. The price is a bit high for being an hostel

    I chose a 4-woman room. On the first night of my stay a man was assigned to the room. I found the room hot and stuffy. There was a dish rack, soap, scrubber, one pot, one plate, one bowl, one set of cutlery. There was no kettle and there was a tiny fridge. The bathroom was tiny and there was no way to avoid water spilling from the shower onto the bathroom floor.

    The hostel is too overpriced, my bed was already occupied from someone else, luckly there was another one empty that I could use but without sheets since they were on the original one. When I told that at the reception the day after they laughed and said: oh yeah that can happen! Without even say sorry for the inconvenience. This is not cool. And for an hostel is overpriced but unfortunately is the cheapest.

    The place is overpriced & a lack of bathrooms is a problem. Sharing one tiny wc/shower in an 8-person dorm was a bit tricky and unfortunately there are no other bathrooms anywhere in the hostel that you can use. Ok, downstairs in the lobby there are 2 toilets, but those were long ways away and always busy. Lobby was superbusy all the time and that showed on the staff too, who just seemed tired of the non-stop traffic. I don't blame them. The place didn't exactly leave a warm & welcoming feeling.

    Okay, with a few downsides The location is great, very close to the city center. They do as little cleaning as possible. There always was still so much hair in the bathroom after they cleaned. Not really a vibe going on, the community area downstairs is small and more used as a waiting area for people waiting for their trains, planes etc. Rooms could use a renovation, I would prefer one big kitchen per floor instead of tiny ones in each room (this would allow to meet more people). The rooftop terrace is n

    Location is good but no charger ports at bed, space in lobby isn’t very hostel like just more of a place to check in rather than chill. Not a great place if you’re a backpacker and looking to meet people and hang out. Didn’t really feel safe or comfortable in the room I was in.
