Liked: Everything! The location was amazing - close to shops, restaurants, bars, etc. The room (including shower and toilet) was very clean. The staff were very helpful! No negative feedback!

Disliked: Everything in Norway is expensive, so it's no surprise a bed in a shared dorm would be expensive too....

Liked: It is a really good hostel --- one does indeed get at full breath what one expects from such kind of accommodation and more: perfect location, free wifi, bed-linen as clean as new, helpful staff. The breakfast is included and is just generous, which comes especially handy provides the sky-high food prices in Norway.

Disliked: No lockers (or locks, at least in my room). The layout of the bathroom is silly --- the toilet and the shower are not properly separated. But this is common for the whole Norway, I guess. Yes, It is expensive. But, come on, it is Norway --- the world richest country.

Liked: Although the exterior and the lobby look a bit like a dingy motel, the rooms are very clean, with two windows and a bathroom ensuite. It's also two blocks from both the high street and the water ferry to the museum peninsula. As a bonus, the cafe right next door - Celsius - is attractively located on a cobbled street and serves delicious food. And I'm a foodie, so that's a real recommendation, I promise. Final call: definitely a worthy choice if you want quiet, clean, and central.

Disliked: - There are no locks on the in-room lockers, or even anywhere to latch your own lock - very odd. - The girl at the front desk was a bit cold but polite on the whole. - Don't plan to spend a lot of time on their guest computer; it's one of those terminals you must stand at, with steel keyboards which are virtually impossible to use easily. - This is not a very social hostel. It's set up more like a hotel, and caters to a lot of Norwegian soldiers, who all appear to be stopping en route to maneuvers or something. There's really no central area where everyone can congregate. On the other hand, maybe everyone just drifts over to the outdoor cafe next door...

Liked: Definitely clean. Very helpful staff and the rooms were only 4 ppl and had a bathroom inside each room, which was great. I had a super early bus and the staff was nice enough to give me a packed breakfast. Also, I seemed to get a discount b/c I paid in cash. Expensive compared to other hostels around the world, but as Oslo is the most expensive place I've ever been, the hostel wasn't a rip-off!

Disliked: No lockers in the rooms, which was a bit annoying.

Liked: Friendly staff, free wi-fi, great buffet breakfast which makes the value for money even better, as eating in Oslo is expensive.

Disliked: There were no kitchen areas to prepare your own food, which was a bit of a surprise. Though there is a cafeteria area which is open for lunch, but not dinner.

Liked: Staff were excellent! The guys on the desk when we checked in after a long day's travel were very helpful, and guided us to the hostel when we got lost (twice). Rooms were comfortable and the location was close to transport.

Disliked: Nothing, it was all great. I wish we stayed more than two nights.

Liked: Great location and great staff, right in the city centre with Oslo at your doorstep.

Disliked: I gave it a bad rating for value but nothing is good value in Oslo. A bit annoying that you have to pay through the nose for a cup of instant coffee throughout the day, also that internet only works on the ground floor.
