Score from 2570 reviews Excellent
We arrived at 1pm so having a 24hr reception as brill. Location is amazing, tram stop right outside the door which takes you to most places in the city. Only 10min walk to city centre. Staff friendly, free WiFi, luggage room and supermarket nearby. Bed super comfy and very quiet for a hostel.
Was surprised to be asked for 100nkr each for bedding when we checked in, sneaky extra charge which was compulsory. We booked a twin room which online looked nice but we got given a 4bed dorm to ourselves which was very dated as not what we expected. You have to hire cutlery/crockery from reception every time you need it. Nothing supplied in room other than toilet roll. Towels are extra money to hire but luckily we took them with us.
the location is good. there are couples of convenien store & supermarket around the hostel. Bus stop is just in front of the hostel. walkable distance to the central station and some of the popular destinations.
The check-in time is too late. Facilities are limited. But it's a good price for staying in Oslo.
Very convenient location
The first room we were given absolutely stank of cigarettes. The hostel felt quite down at heel - its very battered looking. I think given its location in a slightly dodgy area this made me feel a bit worried about where I had ended up... There was an extra charge for linen and another yet extra charge if you needed to borrow utensils for cooking.
Good location Friendly staff
Dirty common area
There is a kitchen in every room. It was clean, and the personnel was nice
Everything looked really cheap, but what do you expect from a hostel.
The bed and linen were lovely! The shower was always really powerful and as hot as you wanted. The twin room was surprisingly big with as table and chair and Kitchenette with more cupboard and wardrobe space than both of us needed for our three day stay. It was very easy to find.
It'd be convenient if the bed linen rental was included in the price as it is compulsory to use them.
Despite what I heard from other reviews the staff were amazing, especially Jensen, who went out of his way to help me with police matters (which he absolutely did not need to do), which was amazing, so thank you.
excellent location, the room was a good size, very good value for money.
one member of staff particularly rude, the wifi was very poor
the location the staff is kind and nice in way to speak and explain things to people. However to really interested in finding solutions but just keeping a nice voice smile saying no for customers requests....
I have paid for a twin room . It was a Valentin s day and it was given us a 8 people bed room. no possibility of putting bed together at all. although nobody else in the room it was extremely uncomfortable ... sleeping separated when it was meant to be a romantic trip... at 3 am a fire alarm drill .. with no reason . o apologies at all. bed sheet and towels extremely expensive .
Good location. Spacious room. Not far from the train station. Good price for a very basic room.
Extra payment for sheets and towels. The breakfast was not really great but pretty cheap for Norway I guess.
dirt, staff was okay but matbe manager was rude.
Really kind staff, nice hall, full of young people, clean and comfortable rooms, great position!
No breakfast included, such a pity!
We stayed at this hostel for 5 nights. The kitchenette is really cool, you can save lots of money making your own meals. Small bathroom included in the room is perfect as well (italian shower). A really nice hostel to stay, and not that expensive than other places in Oslo. Really good safety on the hostel (magnetic card to open floor and doors)
We had a room on Storgata street, a bit noisy... Matress is really thin, and it's hard to stay 5 nights on it... Wi-Fi on room is hard to use on evening, due to a lot of people connected.
Rude staff with really bad manner
It was really comportable and easy to access to Central.
The location was ok, not too far awy from city center. Bed linens and towel were nice and soft. WiFi was good.
Plain ugly rooms that didn't even have handsoap. Bed linens and towel had to be bought separetly, but the was no handtowel and they were expensive. Noisy neighbors were having a party and singing in the hallway. It was the cheapest in Oslo and it looked and felt like it. Ok for short stay
Helpful stuff, easy to reach from central station, "cheap" breakfast, small kitchen but without pots
Internet usually just works at the reception area,
On major tram lines, close to everything, great spot. Friendly staff. Had a great stay.
My bed was booked by someone else with their credit card that was held by booking.com but had to pay cash which meant I was short of cash. If it's held with a credit card it should default to that method of payment if chosen at the time of paying, but I had no choice. Had to pay for meager package of kitchen utensils. It wasnt a super cheap so the least they can throw in is some cooking utensils, plates etc. Plus no bar or separate lounge area except entrance lounge at front door.
One of the staff.. Can't remember his name (Asian) was quite unprofessional.. Every time I would have a remark he would tell me if I don't like it.. I should write an email PS. I was telling him how there was no power outlet in my section.. And that the only way to charge my phone would be the lobby.. He didn't even bother to sort out an extension corde or something Nevertheless.. The guests at lobby seemed a lot nicer than the staff Beds are dirty.. If your lucky enough you'll have a power outlets next to your bed.. Otherwise.. You'd have to charge your phone either on someone else's bed.. Or at the lobby
Clean, location, warm, friendly.
Notice of others. Bed mattress thin. Annoying to pay for linen and towel. Could have booked into a motel for a little more or same price and had toilettories, TV, kettle etc in room.
Great location, good price.
Although small stove was available, no utensils for cooking or even boiling water were there.
Wifi, sometimes no work in the hall, in the room it's impossible to use. You need to rent a sheet, the breackfast its expensive and only have bread, cheese, ham and coffe
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.
