I have stayed there for 3 nights in mixed huge room. 25 min walk to the city center of Oslo. It has a cheap supermarket at the ground floor from where you can buy good stuff. Very nice staff and a huge lobby at the entrance where you can hang out with your friends on the comfortable couches. It also has a bar in this lobby.Lot of bars at a short walking distance.
We have lived here once before. The last time we were all the family. This time it was me and my wife. The most negative with our room was that it was placed right over the entrance : much noise inbetween , also in the night. But all over cheap, easy connection to centrum with bus and tram. A lot of restaurants in the nearby.
The Hostel did the job for the night but was little more than that. The staff were minimal in their service, the room was roasting during the night (I understand it's Norway in November but it was unbearable) and there weren't quite enough charge ports - but that's more trivial than anything. Also the place was completely silent, you didn't get the communal feel like you would in most places which was disappointing. They were the cheapest Hostel in town hence using them but despite fulfilling the service provided, I might splash out on pricier accommodation next time.
This hostel is adequate enough for staying here, it is clean and big and has everything you need. However, this hostel is unbelievably quiet. Even during the day in the dorm rooms it is a no conversation zone, which is good in some circumstances but it was weirdly quiet everywhere. Maybe it was because it was November but crazy quiet! All the facilities are fine, you can pay a deposit for kitchen equipment and hairdryers but you do have to pay for towels and bed linen, which is annoying but at least they have it! They also have a small supermarket attached to them which is really helpful, you can even go in your pjs! The showers are powerful and hot and there are plenty of them. The staff on reception were perfectly fine but not very friendly, we didn't get much information from them, they do have maps but that's about it. The hostel is in a good location, only a tram away from the centre. You get a key card so it is secure and there are free lockers in reception to leave your valuables. There is a large seating area with wifi so we watched a few things on an evening as this is one of the few places that was a tad more lively. It is a really good hostel if you want somewhere to quiet to relax at the end of a busy day. Thank you for our stay, we did enjoy it.
I only chose it because it was the "cheapest" accommodation in Oslo and I was very dissapointed. The staff wasnt very friendly or helpful with general information for tourists. The room was clean, however not enough chargers provided (Close to each single bed would be handy) or night lamps for each bed.
This is a budget hostel/hotel (small h), you get what you pay for and that includes paying for towels and bedding at reception. If you are looking to cook you have to get that at reception as well, luckily there is a shop attached so you can buy food cheap. 25 min walk to the train station and to the center of Oslo. Close to bus/tram stops. Friendly helpful staff.
Spent four nights in this very basic but clean en suite single room in October. Warm and cosy. Had to purchase sheets and pay a deposit for a mug and kettle. Fridge and cooker in room. Within a five minute walk of restaurants and tram. Supermarket on premises is well stocked. Bus to airport ten minute walk away. Bus to airport £17 one way. Would return to Anker hotel or Anker Hostel which are located in the city centre.
Really clean, staff helpful but expensive for what it is (the price doesn't include the sheets and sleeping bags are not allowed). the dorms are really clinical as well. no locked in the room. you have to pay a caution for kitchenware... Unfriendly but really clean place. does the job if you are only looking for a place to warm up for one night.
It nice and big room for family or for triple adults. All the furniture and equipments looks news. The room and rest room is clean and tidy. We also can do cooking as the equipments is in good condition. I recommended to all the travelers
Good: the room is reasonably sized, and there is a small store next door so you can buy necessary groceries. Bad: very noisy people outside at all times. Lots of smoking outside. Slow and unstable wifi connection. The roms are extremely sparsely equipped: there aren't even a lamp by the beds. The hygiene is ok, but not more than that. The price for a double room is about the same as in "real" hotels, but here you must pay extra for bed linen, towels etc, and there is no breakfast. Over all: poor value for the money. I wouldn't recommend this place if there are other low or mid range priced hotel rooms or apartments available elsewhere.
