눉All the bad reviews are spot on. I have stayed in hundreds of hostels around the world and this is by far one of the worst - and I can put up with most things in hostel. No kitchen, no common room and filthy rooms. My ensuite bathroom didn't look like it had been cleaned in weeks. Empty shampoo bottles and rubbish everywhere, and five random toothbrushes (even though there was only two people staying in the room when I arrived). It was pretty gross. You can cook on a small stovetop in the rooms but you have to hire a 'cooking set' as there's no cutlery or crockery in the rooms. I chose not to cook as I think cooking where people sleep and have all their clothes is very inconsiderate (though I understand people need to self-cater in such an expensive city and so this is a major problem with the hostel rather than the fault of guests). I had some pasta I just wanted to heat up - I didn't require any utensils or cutlery, just a microwave - but was rudely told by a guy at reception that my only option was to hire the cooking set and cook in the room. I ate it cold. I still chose this hostel, having read all the bad reviews and also heard verbal bad reviews, as I was literally only in Oslo to sleep before a flight and it was the cheapest place in town. I put my earplugs in, didn't have a shower and just left as soon as I could. Definitely not somewhere to stay for more than a night.
눇The location was decent enough for proximity to the train station. You could store your luggage after checkout. That's about it.

눉Reception staff were not very friendly.
눇Each bed has own plug, and the bath room has floor heating system which dries up the water very quickly.
