This is a Trusted Review. Why?

The location is perfect, in the middle of the center of the city, 5-10 minutes walking distance from the station. Unfortunately, the 4 bed-room dorms are really not well furnished. There are very few plugs, no bed lights (so people turn on the big lights and wake everyone up), one can alsmost not open the window and the bathroom is entirely wet as soon as someone takes a shower. Compared to what I've seen in other hostels, this one is expesive for what it is.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

I had a nice stay in Oslo (8 nights).
After 4 days the waste-bin was lost, not replaced en was never (found back or brought back by cleaning personal??)
In the corridor where the lift is in at o-level can hang a nasty smell that can turn your stomack.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

The location of this hotel, being a short bus ride to central station, was it's main positive. The room we stayed in had some areas where we felt had not been cleaned properly. Our room faced the road and was extremely noisy. We expected more for the amount we paid. We would not stay here again.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Not a very comfortable location, all the bathrooms were dirty--it seemed like the staff never cleaned anything anywhere. There were no common areas, except for tables placed along the street and an overcrowded reception area. There was no where to hang out and meet people (which is partially the point of hostels) without getting irritated by the constant mass of people pushing through, trying to get to their rooms, check-in or go outside. Plus, the apparent kitchen area, although I never managed to locate it, required that you rent pots and pans in order to cook anything. This hostel always felt like a hassle--doing anything. Yuck. No wonder it's not HI.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Excellent stay, the room was nice and clean. The service at the reception was however very slow especially at the check-in. The breakfast at Anker Kitchen was very, very basic and the men working at the cafe were very grumpy which is not something everyone wants to see first thing in the morning!

I would stay there again if I was looking for a cheap accommodation.

Thumbs up from me.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

We could not enter in our room with the key we received at the reception. Even with another key it was not possible. So we slept in another room wherein our key gave entrance.
No possibility to have breakfast. We had to go next door for it.
