  • This place was by far our least favorite of the trip. It is very central and close to the main train station, which is why we chose it, but overall a not a great place. Everything was very dirty–rooms, bathroom, kitchen especially. The place was very hot without a/c and the fridge in our room had mold growing in it. The kitchen and living room area smelled strongly of smoke and all the pots and pans were fairly grimy before we used them. No elevator and poor wifi.

  • They were very nice with my late chekin and very early checkout, and also letting me stay in a room alone. Nevertheless, the area around the hostel was not the best place for a girl to walk alone. Also, toilet was to be shared between so many people, that was very far from clean.. same as the shower.

  • I loved my stay in this hostel. The location is so fantastic, minutes walking from everywhere. The staff, Mathias, was so cooperative and well-educated. The place was clean, don't expect to find Sheraton for 30 Euros. Keeping the luggage after checkout is a good bonus. Internet was fast in my room. I can't find any bad thing but I only stayed one night so, maybe that's why...I recommend the place of course and I will return back if I come again to Norway.

  • My computer was stolen at this hostel. There is no security guard. It's a great hostel but make sure you lock all your stuff.

  • I stayed at a seemingly nicer hostel in the city later on and it didn't have half the character this place did. I met so many fun people and was pleased with my stay here.

  • Cleanliness and the staff were ready to help you out in every possible way. Great location in the heart of the city in Oslo. I would definitely go back there again. Thank you for making my stay in Oslo really awesome and memorable.

  • Excellent service by Mathias. Kitchen and showers were clean and spacious. The room and beds were comfortable. My only complaints are that some of the toilets had overflowing bins and some of the lights in the room weren't working. Overall, it was a lovely stay.

  • The hostel had a full kitchen with stove, oven, microwave and private fridge in your room! This helped a lot since the restaurants in Norway are so expensive. I also like how the toilets are separate from the showers!!! This helps a lot with the availability of use with the toilet. The negatives were that it was very noisy at night since the hostel is right downtown in a main area. And it was way to hot to close the window. So my only complaints is that it was miserable to sleep hot and noisy.
