    Location near the metro station

    The room was very noisy, the windows let in lots of light, small bathroom, uncomfortable. Staff were not friendly, because they said we were staying in a hostel and not in 4-star hotel where the reception was. On the website it was written that had access to wi fi, but this was only available for the "4-star hotel." The kitchen has not even a glass or plates and forks. Disappointing. We do not recommend.

    The location was sufficiently close to Toyen Metro station (roughly 4 mins walking); the price of the hostel was very attractive and resonable ; the staff were really good to help and talk.

    -Wifi was avilable in public areas only ; would have been great if it was extended to the hostel rooms also.

    Additional fees, lying pictures and lying website, the promised equipment wasn't there, poor intimacy in the rooms

    Reasonably priced accommodations for a family of 4.

    Units are starting to show signs of wear and need some overall maintenance and a good cleaning. Little things need to be worked on like the rack to hang clothes is broke, shower head falls down, quite a bit of mold on the bathroom tile and bedroom windows. Great if you want a good price and have low expectations. With a little tlc, these units could be really nice.

    Very good

    We stayed at the hotel 1 night and like that it is situated not far from bus terminal. Furniture is well designed.

    We were very surprized that we needed to pay extra for bed linens and towels. Nothing in either Booked.net or the hotel website mentioned that linens and towels are supplemens that should be extra paid.

    Good location if you want to see more of Oslo than just the common sightseeing places. Young people in Oslo use this area, Tøyen, and Grünerløkka to shop and go out to eat and drink, so if you want to experience an authentic night out in Oslo, this is a nice spot to explore it from.

    Hotelstaff didn't speak Norwegian and they also spoke English rather poor. You have to make your own bed. No soap or toiletpaper in room upon arrival. Even though there's a kitchen, there's absolutely no cutlery or glasses or anything, so you can't really use it for anything.

    We stayed at the hostel for a weekend - we chose it mainly because of the price and location, but were really happy with the nice and comfortable rooms (we had studio apartment with flat screen tv, washing mashine etc.). It has a good location (2 stops with the metro or about 20 mins of walk to the center). I can really recommend this one.

    The only thing that surpriced us unpleasantly was no dishes or pots in our kitchen, we were quite counting on that.

    Very good

    The hotel is the Apartement annex of the Best Western. What was missing were simple elements such as : linen and towels (they cherge you for them), forks, knives and plates (as there is a little kitcche which is then totally useless!). The rest is of decent quality, Breakfast (75 NOK extra) is very good.

    It is the best deal in Oslo, the most expensive capital in Europe

    It is supposed to be an apartment but it doesn't have cooking facilities, not even a microwave, so that was very disappointing

    Exceptional

    The rooms were very clean and big enough for all of us ,since there were 5 of us traveling together it was like having our own home. The breakfast at the hotel was fabulous!!!!!

    Good

    Rooms are very nice and modern inside (outside they look like a renovated industrial buildings). Very clean, inclouding the bathroom. Big lcd tv. Some museums are very near (I.E. Edvard Munch Museum). Supermaket is very near hostel. 300 crowns is a big money for a hostel, but if you compare it with the offer in Oslo, you can see that it is actualy a very cheap hostel.

    Rooms are mixed, which is not problem to me, but my female roomate was quite surprised when she saw me in the room. The reception is in the hotel, so you have to walk trough the street with blankets and bedlinen, when entering the hostel room. The hostel is not in the centre - you have to use the metro or you can walk around 20 minutes, or more to reach some main attractions. Brekfast is not inclouded in the prise.

    I am very angry as it was not mentioned in the website that that is a mixed dorm. When I opened the door, a man came out from the toilet...I Was shocked!!!!! And there is no lock for everything, even toilet! This is the worst experience I have ever had. No hair dryer. No wifi.

    The location is good. Not too central but have a good tranportation.

    The room is too tiny.

    Good

    It did what it said on the tin. A low price option where there were no big problems or issues. We stayed in an apartment and the kitchen/living area made for a sociable space where ten of us could sit, drink, chat, etc. If you manage your expectations and realise that you get what you pay for then you shouldn't be disappointed with this low budget option.

    Low prices can be offered in one of two ways. By either being ultra efficient or by cutting costs. This hostel offered low prices by doing the latter. There appeared to be very little investment or maintenance in the apartments, although there was nothing major wrong, nothing was particularly nice. There wasn't so much as a cup or spoon in the apartments without you hiring them, there was mould in the corners of the room, the venetian blinds were bent up, there were sharp little nails in the walls, the shower drain was loose and dangerous, it goes on. The location was a fair trek from the centre and was quite difficult to identify even when stood right outside. Regardless of what we said or did, none of us ever raised a smile from any of the receptionists. But hey, like I said, you get what you pay for and I would actually recommend this hostel if it suits your budget.
