This hostel is very well located - 2 min from the Railway station. Room are tiny but clean, bathroom included. Staff in the hostel were very kind and helpful. All thing that was dissappointing was a lack of equiped kitchen as described, there were only microwave, fridge and kettle which mean that you need to spend some more money for the food or to buy some in the machine that is also available in the common area of the hostel. Despite that, In general we can fully reccomend this hostel. It stays a very good deal for OSLO, specialy for its central location.

Hi Petulka218!

Thank you so much for a terrific review of our hotel!

We agree that we have a very basic kitchen, the reason why we do not have a more complete kichen has to with fire regulations, we want to keep our guests safe! :)
So glad that you enjoyed your stay with us, and that you decided to recommend us on Tripadvisor.

Hope to see you again!

Best wishes,
Citybox Oslo

The local area isn't benefiting from Oslo's normal quality, with young ladies standing on the street corners, however once you enter the hotel and pass the slightly sterile self-check in system, the hotel is very pleasant with clean communal areas. The room itself is quite small and without a TV. As previously noted by reviewers the bathrooms only have showers and are once again quite small. There are vending machines downstairs to but coffees and small meals which is handy. Although we just walked to a bakery on the corner (left as you exit). To sum up, not too bad. But do some research as the prices/competition for this type of hotel in Oslo is fierce and you might get better elsewhere.

Room Tip: Take the biggest they have, ie a standard double (not small double)

Hi ontheairways!

Thank you so much for giving feedback on our hotel!

We do absolutely agree that some of our rooms are small, especially the rooms that we've named "small", but that's one of the reasons you get them at such a low rate! :)
If you find the room to be too small, we recommend upgrading to a regular double room, normally available at a rate of NOK 50-100 more per night.

We try our best to monitor our competitors, and do our outmost to always offer a price that offers value for money!

Hope to welcome you back!

Best wishes,
Citybox Oslo

Everything was just as needed and for the very reasonable price. The only thing that was confusing is that the room was not cleaned every day (to keep the price low). With the time the room gets little messy. Even without breakfast included you are free to use the common little kitchen below. It provides the oven, comfortable chairs, tables, necessary utensils and tea, coffee machine. Great place to stay for long or not that long.

Hi Olly1301!

Thank you so much for a terrific review of our hotel!

You are correct in pointing out that we do not have daily cleaning. But we clean once every fourth night free of charge. And if you want your room cleaned more often we charge only a small amount per day. Of course we supply you with extra towels and such if ask us! :)

So glad that you could make use of our basic kitchen! Hope you found somewhere else to spoil yourself than an overly expensive hotel room filled with items that you don't really need! :)

Hope to see you again!

Best wishes,
Citybox Oslo

Everything about this hotel is efficient and convenient; location, style, and smart check-ins. I would definitely recommend for anyone else. Great shower and nice warm bathroom tiles. Bring your own tea bags and the coffee machine in the lobby has free hot water. Great way to start the day, even without breakfast options at the hotel. We also took advantage of the community fridge for some orange juice.

Our room was on the interior courtyard, and it was very loud when people were partying around 330-4am. Can't blame the hotel for us going during russefeiring! Oslo is a great city and this is a perfect home base for exploring the sites. Happy travels!

Hi jo942694!

Thanks for a terrific review of our hotel!

We try our best to be a simple and modern hotel, and we really appreciate that you seem to understand and like our concept!

The community fridge you mentioned is actually something we bought after we saw several reviews commenting on that they needed somewhere to keep things cool. Glad that you could make use of it! Thanks for everyone on Tripadvisor for making us better! :)

Also real glad to hear that you understood that we tried our best to keep people quiet after 23:00, but sometimes this can be challenging - especially when there was a major celebration in town for all students graduating from "Upper Secondary School". Normally this does not tend to be a problem!

Thank you so much for your recommendation, and we hope to see you again!

Best wishes,
Citybox Oslo

Stayed here last September! Room had a gorgeous view but everything was at the bare minimum-very clean and sterile! No breakfast included but it meant we weren't limited in what we could do. Automatic check in caused a problem while not having the person to person interaction.

Hi SarahB2130!

Thank you so much for spreading the word on our hotel!

Our concept is based on offering only what we feel are most needed in a hotel, and when we can save on our costs, we can offer rooms at a real low price. Real glad to see that you seemed to understand and like our concept!

If you experience difficulties with the check-in process there is a help-button right next to the check-in terminal, and there is always a Citybox Host available to help! Hope that you didn't experience too much trouble! :)

Looking forward to welcoming you back!

Best wishes,
Citybox Oslo
