Score from 2475 reviews Good
Booked a bed in the dormitory (initially a mixed dormitory as I saw no options for female-only ones during booking) and they let me into a female-only one upon arrival. They should make it clear that there is female-only dormitories for ease of bookers.
The laundry was good. I didnt raped, robbed or get aids from all the junkies shooting up around the Hostel
upon arrival she couldn't find our booking in a 3 bed private. Eventually she gave us an 8bed private only to tell us after we had unpacked that we had been upgraded to the Hotel next door but no one had told or emailed us! The included breakfast was below average and you have yo walk to a restaurant for it. Norway is expensive - prepare youself
Awesome location close to Oslo S and the city centre, and friendly staff.
Had to go to the lobby for better wifi sometimes, and bed linens not provided.
very economic and the breakfast is great
Electronic keys worked haphazardly
The location is very good. The staff are helpful for the most part.
Got mauled by bed bugs, the staff didn't seem to bothered/worried by this. Patchy wifi in rooms.
Superfriendly staff, nice reception area with good music, room is OK, location is good: in between Grunerlokka and city center, lots of shops and supermarkets around.
Bathroom smelled bad, bed matrass was thin, kitchen in the room was nice but you have to get the utensils from the reception every time you eat, room had only one chair en almost nothing to hang clothes on.
I highly recommend Anker Hostel, great location , nice staff, tram number 12 which connects perfectly with other objects of the city. Comfortable beds , peace and quiet . The lobby where you can have a beer , meet people , drink coffee , and connect to the internet . I'm sure I will back there soon
impossible to use the wifi in the room
Only check in after 3pm.
wifi was good. Nice knick knacks and souvenirs for sale behind reception desk. Decent/pretty good location. Room was warm
shower with no real divider from bathroom gets water all over bathroom floor. Not the most attractive building, but the facilities were fine.
Hostel full of people
The fire alarms rang 3 times in 3 days... :S (during the night..)
Friendly staff, clean rooms, normal bed
Made to pay for bed linen. This is compulsory which is a misrepresentation of the actual cost.
Anyway, it was cheap.
They carelessly took the payment twice from my card. But they paid me back. You have to pay for the bed linen.
meet many cool people in my 8-bed room. The location is also quite nice
Renting for bedding with extra 50 Krone
Basic but fine
I wouldn't recommend coming to this city, very unsafe, drugs/ junkies everywhere and nothing to see.
Price was pretty good for what is quite a central location in Oslo. The dorm was basic and functional but at least had basic kitchen facilities and a shower.
Aside from the lobby, the hostel has a very shabby interior appearance. The corridors, with their chipped paint and graffiti, are actually quite intimidating.
we booked a twin room, when we checked in they gave us a four people bedroom because they have no more twin room. so we have a big room during our stay. go straight it is the shopping center, around 5min walk.
We were given a 6-bedder although we booked a twin room, which was fine as we had the room all to ourselves and more space to put our stuff.
It was a long walk from central station, quite inconvenient if you are lugging a suitcase over uneven pathway. Bed linen is not provided which I find strange. Kitchenette in room did not come with crockery/utensils.
They have a good system to keep baggage safe in hostal...
I asked for a king bed for a couple. They put 4 single beds with a second floor each. They said they don't have king beds... so they told me to put two beds together, I think this is hostal work, not for guests.
There is a fridge and a stove in private rooms. This is convenient for preparing own meals, since restaurants in Oslo are very expensive. Furthermore, the reception area is welcoming and spacious with a shared television. The rooms are cleaned everyday and the bathroom is also spacious and well lit.
For 3 days of our 5 day stay the fire alarm went-off in the middle of the night at 3 A.M. With sleepy faces, we had to get our things ready to leave the building a.s.a.p. only to discover that it's a false alarm. When the fire alarm went-off again on the second night everybody just stood in the corridor expecting it to stop soon. Nobody was sure whether to vacate the building or to remain in it few minutes longer - false alarm again! Moreover, although our room had a kitchen, there were no kitchen utensils. That had to be borrowed (with a refundable fee) from the reception every time one wanted to cook (or warm up) something (borrowing time: max. 3 hours). This was inconvenient, since our room was on the second floor. We always had to come down to the reception to pick up or to return the utensils after cooking. Be careful when flushing the toilet (esp. ladies with long nails, :) ), you have to press really hard before you can actually get the toilet flushing.
kitchen furniture to rent everytime leaving a deposit unfriendly personal execpt the cleaner guys fire alarm shouted 3 nights in one week
Staff were friendly. Not bad common space.
There's no shared kitchen - just a cooker and fridge in the dorm which isnt a great idea if you don't want the room to smell like food and also hire of pots and pans is 100NOK. No individual lockers in the room Linen is not included and linen hire is 50NOK. Sleeping bags are not allowed. The shower/toilet was disgusting. the room smelt musty.
When I arrived, the hostel was fully booked so I received instead a room in the hotel. The room was fantastic and very comfortable, and breakfast very nice.
Although I was going to be given a room in the hotel, the receptionist from the hostel charged my for the lining even though he knew I would not need any additional lining in the hotel.
Got upgraded to the hotel and didn't know until we got there. Very clean, friendly staff etc!
