  • Hostel itself is very nice. It is clean and cozy. Staff is friendly and helpful, most are really really nice people. Breakfast is tasty. But mind that it is located quite far from the city center and for the first time it may be tricky to find. If you are going to explore Oslo night life and don't feel like using taxi returning late may be a bit scary. But for sightseeng and hiking it is the best choice.

  • Super glad I came here. Best hostel breakfast I've had (even more appreciated as food in Oslo is expensive). Kitchen facilities good but knives need sharpening, cutlery needs replacing and drawers need labelling. Friendly, helpful staff. Good vibe. Reliable wireless.

  • The kitchen was fabulous. The bedrooms were decently clean, though mine had a massive dead bug on the all for the entire duration of my stay. The showers were not great, the flooring quite dirty and so much hair that the showers couldn't drain properly. It's near to a tram station, so it's not too hard to get to the centre, but is not within walking distance. The Internet does not work in the rooms, only in the common room.
