Comfortable stay!

Facilities, Location, Comfort
I stayed in a 8 person mixed dorm room but I was travelling with 2 other guys. Although we had booked separately, the lady at the counter was kind enough to look through the bookings and got us the same room! The hostel is conveniently located next to a convenient store for your daily needs and relatively near to the bus/train station (about 10 - 15 minute walk) so I didn't have to worry about missing my bus/flight! You had to pay a little bit more if you want a towel and bed linen but I don't think its too bad as long as you've either brought your own linen and towel or taken into account of that charge. You can also do your laundry there for a small fee. Rooms were clean and tidy, had a fridge, good showers, and a hob for cooking. There are no cutlery or utensils so you're better off bringing some or buying some paper ones if you're planning to dine in or cook. Really good stay! Side note, this hostel plays really funky funky tunes at the lobby. Old school hip hop and some really fresh tunes to chill out and have a beer over with friends!

hostel with small unks for adult travellers

location.location. Location.
This is not that cheap a hostel, but the location is good. upon arrival you are asked to pay for bedding and towels, nothing is free. When you arrive in your 8 bed room you discover the bunks are not suitable for adults. If you are an average male you cannot sit up on the bottom bunk. A classic case of the hostel thinking of the money and not their guests. Curtains are useless, in a country with only 3 hours of night, the curtains need to shut out the light. Staff not helpful in locating your room and the hostel is like a rabbit warren. Room not very clean and not cleaned daily.

double charge by this hostel

wifi, free coffee, city map
It was unbelievable that when I already paid everything in Agoda and the hostel staff still said I didn't settle my bill. Because I made reservation two months ago and can't check my bank statement at the moment, so I sent an email to Agoda for double check. They asked me for hotel receipt and the hostel didn't give me during checkin. So I asked receipt on another day by another staff, they finally knew I have made two payments and made refund to my credit card. But thanks Agoda, problem is truly solved when they refund the rate different to me in the end. I really appreciated Agoda's CS, they act efficient and effective. I am so grateful to have Agoda as my hotel agent. I hope the hostel won't make the mistake twice.

Overpriced for what you get

Walking distance from the train station, easy to find, open 24 hours.
For what you pay, it is very expensive. Rooms and corridors are not especially clean, and in the room there are not even any cups. No kettle, no plates etc. unless you go down to reception and pay a deposit. Very noisy on Friday/Saturday nights due to the people outside, so it was difficult to sleep well. Unfortunately there are not many options in Oslo.

Odd experience

good location
I would not recommend this hostel for anyone with a car. Parking costs more than the room! Laundry service is available, but you must walk through the rain (it always rains except in the summer) to the underground parking garage to get to the washing machines! Also, while I was in the laundry room 3 cars were broken into. The staff was dismissive and did not even welcome me, just looked at me upon approaching the reception, leaving me to inniate the conversation. While using wifi in the tiny common room which blasts the same intolerable dance music while the other guests struggled to concentrate on there computers, I saw the same treatment to other male guests, with the exception of females guests who were treated with courtesy and laughter. Very unprofessional and zero positive atmosphere, anywhere on the premises. Do not recommend, there's far better at the same price in Oslo.
