Good service. Clean and spacious room. Overall good experience.
Wi-Fi was not working.
Very convenient to reach. Kitchen service is good.
We thought that the Anker Hostel was terrific and it was very good value for Norway. The staff were very friendly, always glad to assist with any queries we had. The hostel is in a good location, about 15 minutes walk from the city centre and the train station. Oslo isn't very big and we were able to walk to almost everything from the hostel. There are some good shopping streets just to the north, and some good restaurant streets just to the south.
Well the sheets were clean and the windows were new and blocked out all sound.
Room very tatty, lights didn't all work, barely any sockets, carpet not nice, barely any facilities, wifi didn't work in the room, no signal. The hostel is in a rundown area of town, you walk through lots of homeless, beggars and generaly dodgy looking people to get there, glad I only had a small backpack. For what it costs its frankly rubbish, there is at least one much better option in Oslo.
Comfortable beds. Nice location.
Bad staff, not friendly and not helpful. Kitchen insidethe shared rooms... bad idea. Too pricey for what it is.
Accessibility and close to central oslo activities
Parking costs, lobby over-crowded always and difficult with luggage and elderly people.
Location Beds Clean
Wifi Staff The make you pay for everything (linens, lockers etc.)
Cheapest in Oslo Close to everything
Terrible neighbourhood in which even a gunshot was fired Very limited comfort
Clean, comfortable, quiet, good location
not knowing I had to pay extra for linen and towel
Decent price in this really expensive city.
A bit run down, no athmosphere.
Wifi works well and the hostel is well located
WC/Showers are together (just separated by a curtain) and you have to share it with 8 other people if you stay in a dormitory, which means its constantly wet everywhere in the bathroom. It was quite disgusting.
Location if you avoid the some streets. Big room and window. Good hot shower. Cool area to hang-out in Oslo. Nothing is really special in this place.
Unbelievably bad mattresses. Really really unclean and dirty, the access are simply not cleaned. Super expensive for money value. kitchen without Microwaves e nothing to use. No functional window shades. Unpleasant staff. No towels or linen sets, available but expensive. One of the worsts places I've been, even though has great potential to be nice.
Location; although is not in the best area the hotel is very close to the center and with a tram and bus stop in front of it will take you anywhere quickly
The cleanliness; if you mind about it; maybe this is not the place for you. The toilet and shower in the room were disgusting. The lift had a very strong smell.
10-minute walk from terminals, simple, clean, large rooms
Lift off at night, terrible wifi
We booked a twin but was given a 7 bed dorm to ourselves when we arrived. 24 hour checking was great. Cheap drinks and snacks available at reception. Low noise.
Having to pay to hire a 'dining kit'. We only wanted to use a knife and folk. Some of the dishes weren't clean and looked quite old. Building quite stark although reception was a nice area to chill.
The staff was not helpful and the attitude was bad. The facilities is old. I don't see the value of the price.
Comfortable Good location, easy access by tram or bus to open air museum self-contained - if anyone wants can rent kitchen appliances and cook on their room
Anker hostel has a great location in town. It was clean and there was a good and young atmosphere.
They offer free luggage keeping and there's kitchen in the room. But if only they provide some basic utensils it would be perfect.
No kitchen utensils.
very friendly and helpful staff, and even though we were only a group of two people we had a very very spacious room! the hostel is also in a very good location in Grünerløkka, with Hausmanns Gate tram stop just outside and the city centre being a very short walk away. Would recommend to any Oslo-goers.
Close to train station and center of town. Girls I shared room with were nice. Bed was OK and room was clean. Bathroom was clean.
Guard at train station told me not to walk even though close. Said was dangerous area of town. Bus was handy and close.it's of people so was a bit noisy especially since girls were coming in and leaving at all hours. No fault just the way it is.
Near the main station but the area isn't very safe
Overpriced.had to pay for every single thing you would get for free in other hostels.Never enough staff at the desk. Wi-Fi didn't work in the room.No atmosphere at all.I would never stay here again.
The wifi worked fine in my room
It’s not located in the best street of the town, especially for a single girl walking back at night, but you can walk to the central station and you have a tram terminal right in front of the hostel. It’s not the cleanest hostel, but it is a hostel! Also, you cannot use your own sleeping bag; you have to rent their sheets.
