29 January 2014 Matthew would recommend this property

Liked: The price of a night here, combined with the ridiculously central location in Oslo, makes this hostel great value for money. The staff were all very riendly and eager to help, and the food at the restaurant downstairs was very tasty (I recommend the reindeer stew!) (and there's also also a decent kitchen/living room area if you'd rather cook for yourself)

Disliked: Some of the mattresses were a little bit stained; but you get a blanket & duvet, so no need to touch them anyway! Also be aware that the tram runs by right outside the window, so if you're a light sleeper, I guess that may bother you (again, not a problem for me; once I'm out I'm dead to the world)

Liked: The location is excellent, the place was tidy, the beds were comfortable. I felt safe.

Disliked: The showers weren't close to where I was sleeping (as in, they were on another level altogether). Some of the stand-alone toilets don't have a basin to wash your hands in. I found it to be a bit of a lonely hostel - while things were clean, it was clearly old and not in great condition, and it was hard to find other people staying there to connect with.

Liked: The twin room was very spacious with huge window overlooking the street. Was happy to find a refrigerator and a TV in the room, although we couldn't get the latter to work. The location was great.

Disliked: The atmosphere wasn't so nice. Somekind of weird smell was in the hallway in the morning, reminded of a big hangover(wasn't us for sure).

Liked: The beds were clean and the showers were always hot and actually very nice for a hostel. Considering the volume of people using them, I would describe them as well kempt.

Disliked: The hallways and common areas were in need of a deep clean, especially mopping. The main stairwell was covered in coffee stains on every step. Our room was on the ground floor of the building, just feet from the front door and across from the door of a cafe that adjoined the hostel. Our window was right in an alley where everyone went to smoke. The hostel also does not have an age limit, thus there is an odd array of patrons. On each night, there was a different person hanging around in the stairwell or sleeping in the desk chair in front of the communal computer. I didn't necessarily feel threatened, just not at ease.

Liked: Great location and otherwise good enough you know. Also, the price is certainly right!

Disliked: A little rough around the edges, a good number of the folk were not travelers, but rather lived at the hostle permanintly - not dirty or dangerious, but just a bit of strange lot.

Liked: Very close to the Main Street

Disliked: It smelt of cigarettes and I was a female traveler alone and they put 3 men in my room and didn't prowrly ask they just said "3 Italian men are staying with you ok? Good" So if that makes you uncomfortable keep it in mind. The 3 guys were friendly so it was no issue but just a heads up

Liked: Spent 2 nights here. We were supposed to stay in a dorm, but I guess they over booked and put us in a private room instead with no extra charge which was nice! Restaurant under the hostel offers a discount for guests, and the breakfast was simple, but good (eggs, toast, bacon, salad, coffee and orange juice). Easy walk from the train station. Room was clean and spacious, 2 bed private with minifridge, tv (only DVDs no channels), and full length mirror.

Disliked: The shower was a bit skeevey, but bring shower-shoes/flip-flops and its not bad. Thin walls.

Liked: - central location, most interesting points, whether cultural ones or nightlie, are accessible within a short footwalk distance - comnfortable beds - kitchen (essential in not so cheap Oslo)

Disliked: - as it is also a pension many people stay longer, which kind of destroys the hostel athmosphere a bit, but the positive side are the interesting stories to hear
