Good value for money
The hostel is perfect location, only few tram stops or about 10 mins walk from Oslo Central Station. Simple and clean room. You have to pay for the bed sheets and towels and no soap in the bathroom. Wifi worked fine in the room. Good value for money. I am satisfied with the stay.

Location not bad
Location not bad, about 10-15 mins walk to Oslo Central Station. Place was not too clean not too dirty either. Check-in was quite a mess as there was a long queue (as there was only one check-in staff).

Basic hostel premium price
The typical HI budget hostel in any city: anodyne huge and impersonal like a soviet-bloc office building. But "budget" in Norway means actually super expensive for the European standards. Bed linen MUST be brought from home or rented at the hostel (50 NOK). Otherwise the private room was decent and the location is great.
