Liked: The WIFI is superb, excellent signal wherever you are in the building. The guy on the front desk is a really nice friendly bloke..The fact I got there late and didn't pre advise him he still got up and helped me check in Free towel. The café downstairs served excellent local cuisine with 15% discount off afternoon meals. Tap water was refreshing.

Disliked: Prostitutes right on the doorstep. Heroin addicts wandering in and out of the hostel at night (do they live there?!) - The showers either blew out scolding hot water or Atlantic Ice cold water. No happy medium. The beds made me scratch. My locker key opened up somebody elses locker and vice versa. Although I liked the food In the café downstairs the waitresses were unfriendly. loud street at night, punters picking up their 'ladies of the night'

Liked: The beds were pretty comfortable and the property didn't have bunks which is always nice when you are travelling alone. Also there were secure lockers in the room.

Disliked: The hostel was fine and seemed safe but was not really a good place to meet people. There were a lot of people travelling with their significant other and also a much older crowd.

Liked: Excellent location, and affordable accommodation in Oslo. The gentleman on reception was very nice, and as I arrived around midnight allowed me to check in and come back to pay the next day. Also notable to have linen and towels included in price, this is unusual in Norway. Bed was comfortable, and showers were hot.

Disliked: This appears to be an old hotel where they have just chucked a bunch of single beds in no particular order into each room - there are no bunk beds, it's a little weird. There were insufficient bathrooms for the number of guests - there were two showers and two toilets on my floor - which were not very clean. This is not really a hostel in the traditional 'backpackers' sense, there really wasn't any atmosphere, the kitchen - which I didn't even know existed for an entire day - is the only common area and there was one table with about eight seats, and one couch with a TV. The reception was rarely manned.

Liked: Lockers in room, kitchen area is large. Showers were good. Staff were really friendly and helpful.

Disliked: No air conditioning, it was very warm in Oslo at the time. We had to have the windows open at night which then let the noise in. Streets are very noisy at night once the hookers come out.

Liked: Location is excellent. Walking distance from both train/bus stations, city center, museums and amenities. Also the price, although not cheap, in Oslo is very cheap.

Disliked: Beds are shabby. I share the dormitory with a horrible woman, extremely rude and selfish. Sleeping during the day, awaking everybody during the night. Rooms and showers are more or less clean. But the living room/kitchen is very dirty. I missed a clean place where to sit down or eat something. Going to that living room is like loosing the apetite.

Liked: It is literally steps from the train station, so the location is great. We stayed in a very comfortable room -- good beds, linens provided (including towel).

Disliked: Reception doesn't open until 10am. It would be better if they opened at around 8am, or even 7. We had places to be in the morning and wanted to pay cash, but ultimately they charged the card because they weren't there.

Liked: Quaint, and the staff were very flexible and laid back attitude towards it all. Free linens are a rarity in Norway! Covered the basic amenities. Very interesting mix of clientele.

Disliked: Seemed a bit dirty/smelly. Very interesting mix of clientele (this can go both ways). One of the more bizarre hostels I've stayed in in my day, but for a budget and in a pinch, what else can you do?

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)
