“Good value for money”
Reviewed 16 April 2013

This place is good value with a buffet breakfast included. It is not far from a metro station (when arriving, get on the metro service to Sinsen, then get off an go in the direction of Hans Nielsen Gauges Gate, turn left to cross the road at the zebra crossing, then immediate right to cross the next road, then straight over the tram lines, then turn right to walk along the footpath past the football pitches and up the hill - you will see the building on top of the hill). The staff were helpful and rooms clean. There is a kitchen you can use as well. The only thing was a couple of the nights there was some noise, either from outside or another room, but this didn't cause too much disruption.

This place is on a beautifull hillock. Out of the city center but can be easily reached by public transport. Service is good and staff is friendly. Stay includes breakfast. There is also a kitchen where you can cook your own food as a supermarket is quite close by. Common facilities are plentifull.

Reviewed 24 November 2012

Price is good for Oslo, and breakfast included as well as a kitchen helps save a bit more money in an expensive city. However linen not included (+50 NOK) and have to pay 25 NOK if not a HI member.
Bit out of the city centre, but easily reached by public transport.
Service very good. Staff friendly and helpful.
Lookers in the rooms were a good size, but didn't seam all that sturdy, and the highest level of lockers was too high to get any decent sized luggage into. Reading lights in the rooms were too bright and couldn't be used without waking up other guests.
Wifi not good in room, but OK in common areas (although did cut out occasionally for no apparent reason).
Rooms are all keycard access, but it still didn't seam as secure as it should have. Staff could keep a better watch on the key for the luggage room.
Kitchen smelt a bit funny, not sure why.
Lot of older people staying here that seamed to be job hunting rather than tourists.

This hostel is one of the best I've stayed in. Very clean, good location ( about 15-20 min by tram into city centre). Supermarket close by, common areas plentiful and nice. Breakfasr buffet is a good spread. In a quiet area and no rowdy noises inside the hostel either. Be warned that it does sit atop a hill, but it wasn't an issue for me as I had a backpack. I got there early and they let me check-in at no additional cost since there was room. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Note you can by tram/ bus tickets from the reception, which was helpful because the ticket vending machines didn't like my notes and I didn't always have change.

Clean, bright, friendly hostel with good quality dormitory accommodation and a wide choice at breakfast. Perfect for a short break city stay, loads of local transport nearby, and also for airport travel; the Gardemoen 'Flybuss' express stops near the hostel on the route back to the airport. So when you're worn out after a week of sightseeing, you don't have to drag your bags into town again. Nice relaxing atmosphere in the hostel; even though it was busy and the members kitchen was cramped, it somehow didn't feel overcrowded or too noisy. Small supermarket nearby means you can avoid blowing all your money on the high cost of Norwegian food.

Room Tip: I was in a 6 bed dorm and still got a good night's sleep so I expect all the other rooms are as...
