Good walking distance to Central Station
The hostel was in a perfect location. 10 minute walk to the city centre and close to lots of bars. The accommodation was very comfortable and warm.
Very helpful staff, reasonable location.
Position of the hostel (10 minutes by foot from center)
Low wifi connection Rooms are very crowed
Easy to find location, near center, close to some good spots, clean and seemed safe.
It was necessary to rent the sheets, I mean, really? Wifi kinda didn't work most of the time.
Too many people in one small room.
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.
I' e been surprised of finding an hostel much better than the one described in the others reviews! Very clean, comfortable beds and nice hall, friendly staff and really near to the city centre and grünerløkka.
The breakfast was not inviting, so we had it elsewhere. Easy:)
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.
Toilet and showers in room. Map on reception. Excelent position.
Try to reserve parking place, bacause near garage cost ca 30 eur per day. Internet only in public place and not so speed. Inside look like a bunker.
Kitchen in the room. Utensils can be hired on refundable payment on giving back the utensils to the reception. The room is excellent, and we felt fully protected.
(I) Price of renting of bed cover/linen and towel must be included in the room price. This bad practice of non-inclusion of bed cover/linen and towel in the room price has pervaded in most of Scandinavian hostels. Otherwise, we have to carry these with more luggage weight occupying more space, as we did. (2) In the toilet there is no separate waste-basket/dustbin to throw away used toilet paper after defecation/using WC for this purpose. On telling the lady receptionist, she told that she would tell her boss to redress the problem, which she did not do. Only one general dustbin was provided, not that we use for WC purposes. This unhygienic practice in Anker Hostel should immediately be stopped. I think Anker Hostel authorities/employees do not practise this type of waste-basket/dustbin culture (i.e., one piece for all purposes including latrine one) in their homes.
10-minute walk from terminals, simple, clean, large rooms
Lift off at night, terrible wifi
Open space with wii fee free and a lot of new people to meet.
Mixed rooms. .mans and women its no confortable
