Liked: Dormitories and kitchen were very clean. lots of grassy outdoor area behind the hostel good for exercise and games (life size chess, ping pong, discgolf, and 2 turf soccer fields all right behind the building).

Disliked: location is far from city center- and everything else. reception tried to charge me 50NOK more than what I was supposed to pay because of a "mathematical error." Additional charge (50NOK!) for use of bed linens- should be included in the price. Rooms are quite narrow and beds are of below average comfort, even for a youth hostel. No alcohol permitted in the hostel. No organized gatherings or events to meet other backpackers, or even bike tours or walking tours in the city.

Liked: It was not too far from public transportation and had free wifi. It was relatively clean and I saw staff cleaning all the time.

Disliked: The shower kept getting hot and cold on its own and I had to constantly adjust it. Several times, my key card did not work and I had to get it fixed at reception. The sink in my room was broken and had a very poor water flow with only warm water.

Liked: Very well presented with really kind and helpful staff The facilities were excellent including free internet and a much appreciated left luggage room. The storage in the room was also of a high standard and the showers and the loo were conveniently located

Disliked: We were directed to Sinsen but when we emerged from the station there was no signage. I would recommend sending much more explicit directions when people book or erecting more signs from all local stops
