For the dormitory rooms the bathroom was a little narrow for 8 people. But for the rest amazing place, people and city.

This was one of the most affordable places to stay in Oslo and the 3 person apartment did just what it needed to do. It’s right by public transport and a quick walk to things like the Opera House and other downtown areas. On one of the streets leading up to the hostel it’s quite crowded with some people who are in need of some assistance, but we didn’t feel unsafe.
