Stayed here for one night, we got a room in the new building. Clean, enough space and even possible to make coffee or tea. Bathroom was clean too. Free parking, but get al youre belongings out of the car, because they told that cars get broken open frequently. Breakfast was included in the price, linnen can be hired. Price is ok, still expensive but this is Norway. Not close to centre, but easy with tram, takes about 20 min. Price about 30 kr one way. Service was ok. Many different people come here, travellers, aswell as people who work in Oslo and sort of live there i guess.

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.

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.
