Disliked: Amenities
For Oslo it’s cheap but very basic, I was only 1 night but felt a little concerned if door locks so didn’t sleep well, very basic could do with a lamp to see if get up , and you pay to eat in nearby hotel for breakfast, probably wouldn’t stay again if in Oslo again

Excelente ubicación para caminar por Oslo. Hotel sencillo pero comfortable. Las habitaciones son mejores que en la foto. Es un punto intermedio entre hotel y hostal.

It's a basic hostel, clean, and provides linen, pillow cover, and towel. The location is good and they provide storage for luggage. They have a foosball table, a coffee vending machine, and a sitting area in the lobby.
