Score from 209 reviews Very good
For my first time in Oslo I wanted somewhere cheap and Central which is exactly what I got. Clean, easy and welcoming.
No common area to really meet other travellers if you're rocking it solo like myself.
I like the location of Anker Hostel because is near the centre of Oslo, train station and easy to use bus and tram. Staff was very helpful.
One of the lifts was out of order.
Comparatively dirty bathroom.
The staff is nice.
There is no kitchenware in the kitchen.
location knowledgeable and efficient staff heating working well very clean includes fridge and cooking rings in dorms
could do with individual light to allow to read in bed. bed sheets and towel not included, need to pay extra.
for barely 15-minute waiting for check-in (before regular check-in time) for "technical reasons" we were rewarded by getting a double room WITH kitchenette and FREE bed sheets! :-) , key cards instead of classical keys, good coffee machine and wifi in lounge
no wifi in the room(s), fortunately there were lots of seats downstairs in lounge...
We thought it was great. We were pleasantly surprised to find at no extra charge we'd been given a room with two spare beds and a kitchenette so we could cook a meal - eating out is costly in Oslo. The staff were very helpful. Luggage room is free and used it while shopping after we'd checked out.
Nothing springs to mind
I have only been there for few hours to catch a bus in the early morning, but the hostel seemed clean and comfortable. The room is very spacious and there is a toilet inside shared by the only occupants of the room. The hostel is located near the tramway and a few minutes walking from the central station.
One of the cheapest accomodations in Oslo.
Don't let shiny lobby fool you - actual rooms are in much worse shape. Rooms have mini-kitchen inside, however kitchen utensils have to be taken from the reception for a deposit of 100 NOK (for a limited time). Rooms by themselves don't even have basic stuff like cups, spoons or forks. You can't boil the water without going down to the reception as well. My room was smelly and uncomfortably big. I wish booking.com displayed how many beds there are in the room before booking.
Rather cheep accomodation for one night, we had a room with personal bathroom
Additional payment for bed linen, lack of cleaning: odd hair everywhere; unpleasant surroundings with suspecious people
Location close to center of town. Bus/train stop in front of hostel. Hostel was quiet.
Staff were not catering towards tourists. Did not offer any tourist information except a map and answer specific questions. Hostel did not offer any organized tour of city nor could they offer recommendation of touring companies or information. It was odd that this hostel did not provide tour activities or make any effort to mingle the members as commonly done in other hostel across the world.
No tv, bed linen extra cost (didn´t see the point for that).
Open friendly staff
Finding the breakfast place without a coat not the best idea . Longer than you are lead too believe .
It's been the 3rd time I was going there, the staff is really welcoming, possibility to leave the luggage before and after the night. The rooms are clean, it's near the train station, possibility to have Wifi ... :)
In the city center ..
The location is lovely, a short walk or tram from city centre but near the Munch museum and other sights. There are cheap beers and wine and snacks at reception and it's very friendly and sociable. The free maps were great and the staff are lovely. The rooms are cute and functional enough.
One day the wifi cut out for the entire day, and after that it was quite patchy. I stayed for 5 days, and I paid for bedding for the 5 days and very single day it was removed and I had to go back to reception and ask for more sheets and remake the bed, annoying because sometimes I got home late and tipsy and couldn't be bothered with this constant error. There's no locker storage so I had to take my bulky laptop out with me every day.
Reception arrangements, fair cost, reception staff members kindness and readiness at helping with Oslo City.
That space between elevator/stairs and the dormitories...it needs to be improved a bit with paintings or decorated. otherwise the rest of corridor after opening the door to the dormitory is good.
Location and price.
It's better buy your own breakfast that buy a ticket.
+ Yes, it is less than 15 minutes from the station S and metro + And it is one of the cheapest places to stay in Oslo + polite staff
-The room seemed dirty. I think no one cleans the floor, the table and in the bathroom, they only change rubbish bags. - Mixed dorm with 8 beds is noisy and not too comfortable- don't book for more than 1 day. - No cutlery, no dishes, no glasses...
A short walk to the train station and main shopping are and waterfront, staff were helpful and friendly, there is a kitchen which is always good however it is in the bedroom which was not ideal, located close to supermarket, bathroom had heated floor, bed was surprisingly comfortable for such a thin mattress, neighbourhood is quiet so I slept very well and even had a ten bed dorm to myself one night
Very basic decor, I don't like the idea of the kitchen in the bedroom as it is awkward if you want to eat or cook while people sleep. Any cutlery, plates or cooking equipment requires a deposit. Bed sheets are very expensive
good price, good location, the room was clean
the wifi was spotty
1. Staff and management are very helpful and friendly. 2. Very centrally located 3. Excellent value for money
1. Wi-fi at some rooms at upper floors were not so strong.
Closeness to oslo centre
Communal area too small
There is only one tiny bathroom in each room and there are no other showers or bathrooms available.
Staff Location Brakefast
bathroom sink was blocked in my room.
