This hostel is one of the cheapest accomodation solutions in Oslo.
My friends and I booked 4 beds in the 25 people dorm (yes TWENTY FIVE!) last November.
The hostel itself is very modern and clean. The white corridors might give you a "hospital" feeling, but for the price offered, I'd rather that than a dirty place.
Kitchen is very spacious, with a lot of equipement. You make a money deposit to the desk in order to get cooking stuff (plates, bowls, cleaning product, ...) and get it back when you bring the stuff back. That way, kitchen is always clean and there are no unwashed stuff drying on the sinks, so it's quite a nice thing!
The staff was friendly and helpful, and we felt secure in the hostel. It was not that close to the city center, but the walk was ok.
I had some bad experiences, but I'm not going to blame the hostel for that: the staff is not responsible for the bad behaviour of some guests. Be aware that booking a 25 guests room, it will be quite noisy and you can have some bad suprises (WHY do people sleep naked in such a crowded dorm?????????? I saw more naked bodies in one night than in my whole life).
Oh, and be sure to pack your stuff well and not let anything around your beds (lockers would have been nice) because one drunk man pied in my friend's shoes.
But like I said, the hostel is not to be blame: book while keeping in mind the fact that you are just going to live with a bunch a people.
