What guests loved the most:

“Room had plenty of space and was clean, good budget option.”

Rebecca Thailand

“Location which is good - central to a range of places, about 20 minutes on foot to the harbour (Akershus, ferry tours etc.) and 20 minutes on foot to the Munch Museet The reception is 24h so when I arrived in the early hours of the morning I was able to check in - I was so preoccupied with the flight that I forgot to check in beforehand! Having a kitchen in the hostel is very good news and allows me to be more budget concious”
