Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 December 2013

This place is really clean & bright. All facilities are good. Bed sheet, duvet cover, pillow case, and 2 towels (big & small) are sealed in plastic bag.
Bathroom is separated b/w male and female but toilet is not separated.
Wifi strength is good.
Breakfast provided is excellent : toast, cereal, salad, ham, cheese, boiled egg, juice, coffee, fresh fruits.
Location is also great, 7 mins walk to Oslo S (central station). It's also near main shopping street, Karl Johan.

Room Tip: Female bathroom and toilet are just in front of room 203.

Excellence could certainly be second name for this place. I stayed there for three nights and then extended to one more, so in total two rooms in my sample for judgment. Perfect location (close to Royal Palace, to the main tourist street, public transportation), perfect rooms (and I loved the blankets), perfect bathrooms (better than in some hotels with some stars), breakfast of such a quality that it is not hard to eat enough to live without lunch (makes stay in Oslo so much cheaper), welcoming and responsive people in reception. You name what characterizes an ideal hostel - they have it.

They adjust to the needs of a customer at its most, also if it means allowing to hang out/store luggage aft check-out to explore the city, when the benefit they gain from that is only hypothetical and theoretical. Well - I try now to materialize it writing this review that will hopefully make at least someone to choose this place for staying at Oslo. :)

Me and my friend just came back from our trip to Oslo. We stayed in this hostel for two nights and it was absolutely perfect. The location is great, close to the main shopping street and central station, as well as the town hall and connections to public transport. In general the centre of Oslo is compact and you can walk a lot, and from this hostel several touristic attractions are easy to reach. The staff was friendly and the hostel looks great, it is quite modern and the furniture seems quite new. We had a room with four beds and a private bathroom. The room was clean and nice and the bathroom was better than the ones I have seen in many hotels. In the basement, next to the breakfast area there is a kitchen with all equipments you need to cook yourself a nice meal, further there is a washing room and an iron. The breakfast was included in the price (which was very fair for what we got) and it was a good breakfast buffet with many options and different choices of food.
I would definitely recommend this hostel.

This is a very nice hostel - everything is very new and clean! Central location, a short walk from Oslo S train/bus terminal. The staff were friendly and helpful. I was there during low season, so even though I paid for a dorm spot, I had the whole room to myself!

It is a little pricier than some hostels - but everything is included (linens, towels, breakfast buffet in the morning). Good internet connection available in lounge and rooms.

The self catering kitchen is tiny for such a large hostel, but...oh well!

Room Tip: Pay extra for a room with an "in-room" bathroom/shower...they are nicer.

Honestly the best hostel I have ever been to, the breakfast was amazing, the hostel was clean, the beds are comfortable, and everything is new. Some staff is friendlier than others but everyone are tolerant to your requests.
