very well located. Good price compared to other hostels in Oslo. The rooms are quite simple, but enough to spend a couple of days.

Simple and clean! Room with bank-beds, one table, four chairs, small kitchen, clean bathroom with floor heating :) The breakfast is at the restaurant next door(you have to pay before at the hostel reception). Pros: Quiet, clean, close to center, public transports at the door, no curfew. Cons: WI-FI ONLY on living room :(

The hostel offers cheap and basic accommodation. The rooms are rather spacious, clean with access to a bathroom and a kitchenette (you can lend the kitchen utensils at the reception desk).The hostel is located close to the city centre, however, the area is a little sketchy and dirty. I guess it might get a bit dangerous in the evenings.

Most things about the hostel are really average. However, some things to note if you plan to stay here: the breakfast discount down the street is, while perhaps quite cheap, very disappointing; also, the location, while fairly central, is in a somewhat sketchy area, and makes for some fairly negative travelling nearby the hostel. On the plus side, the rooms...

We spent two nights there in November 2011 and there's absolutely nothing to complain about. Well, maybe weak WiFi signal in the rooms ;) But it's free. Besides this there is everything you might need in a hostel: small kitchen den and your own bathroom with shower. It's pretty close to the city center. You can reach it on foot...

When we got here, the first I noticed was the atmosphere, was boring and no one was talking to anyone. There were two girls in the front desk, and they told us the basic things. Nothing helpful or friendly,just Ok. We took the breakfast of the hostel, that its next door in an indian restaurant. You can choose fruit(apples or...
