Great over all but lack in some areas... Specially room cleaning service

The hotel itself and the staff is very good. Was in there for 3 nights all very close including the museums, harbour, shops, restaurants. But was disappointed as was advised at checkin that they do room cleaning service only every 4 days. This need to be reviewed as the value paid for expect at least a daily room cleaning service... Plus there is a disgusting mark of glue I think in the bedroom floor. Good thing here is at least the have a gym, a free laundry room but you need to buy your own washing powder of course.

Very clean, functional and friendly hotel. Room sizes are small but not too small. Friendly help given at checkin and when problem with shower was found the staff were eager to help. It's a handy location, about 5 mins walk to the railway station and very handy to the waterfront. Recommended.

Great stay in Oslo

We stayed for 1 night in Oslo, a very low rate compared to any other hotels. We had a 10min. walk to the central train station. The staff was very helpful in providing directions and they seemed genuinely happy that we were staying at their hotel. The rooms were clean and modern, beds very comfortable. The bathroom was large for a European hotel and the fixtures worked properly. It would be nice if they could offer a warm breakfast, but they do have free coffee/tea 24/7 and some snack items that can be purchased in the lobby. Would definitely stay here again.

Budget gem in an expensive city

Stayed here with a friend in January and was really happy with this hotel. While not right in the centre it's only a five-ten minute walk to the train station, shops and all local sights. The hotel has a very self service vibe to it and while the staff where not in the habit of approaching me they where very friendly amd helpful when approached with any queries. It's definitely a hotel geared towards the youth market the design is very modern and stylish. The rooms while a little small are a perfect example of Scandanavian efficiency, compact but well laid out with free wi-fi and up to date technology. The room was spotless as was the rest of the hotel. The area it's in is a little rough around the edges looking and seems to be in a part of town with a large immigrant population. It does seem a little dicey but the hotel it's safe is ultra secure with keys needed for hotel and lift access and we had no problems. Only downside is the beds are very narrow with thin (about a sixth of uk sized) almost camp like mattresses which are definitely not very comfertable, okay for a young group staying a few days but anyone with back issues or not suited to sleeping in a very narrow skinny Minny type space would be best to avoid. I would definitely stay here again, but wouldn't look forward to sleeping in the teeny beds!

Hello! Having made you happy with your choice of hotel really makes us happy. Our location tight next to Youngstorget is known for its many bars and restaurants along with different music venues. We really hope you enjoyed your visit to Oslo. European twin rooms: not the same as in US and Canada, we know. Twin beds here are two single beds 90x200 cm. Only a few of our rooms are twin, the rest are double/queen size (150/160x200 cm). On your next visit (which we hope is soon), make sure you book/ask for a double room in stead of a twin. Hope you’re having a great day!

Service is excellent; the personell at the reseption are helpful, smiling and fast. I had a standard room with twin beds. Plenty of space and quite new with a modern look and design. Helpful with a refridgerator The location is superb. Only a 10 min walk from the central station. The hotel is in the eastern part of the city with many immigrants and an international feel. Quite a few good restaurants, cafees, pubs and nightclubs nearby. I liked best the price. Some part of the room could be cleaner.
