Comfortable, clean, easy walk to train station, tram stop right out front.

6/10 Okay


Liked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
Check in and check out was smooth and without any issues and the guests in my room were super friendly. However, the hostel's common area closes at 11 and you're not allowed to hang out in the halls so if you're wanting to hang out with your roommates but not disturb those in the room sleeping you have to leave the hostel which isn't always ideal. Also the rooms didn't have lockers so that was another down side.

Great place. The one complaint I have is it’s new rule to take 200NOK deposit on card only for cutlery. As a non resident this will take up to 10+ days to return back on the card. Before I’ve left passports cash driving license but that is not an option if you now leave before reception opens at 7am. Otherwise it’s been clean and location is central with Oslo S and bars restaurants around the corner plus shops for buying food to cook.
