Lonely Planet review
This huge traveller-savvy hostel boasts an international atmosphere, spick-and-span rooms, laundry, luggage room, kitchens (some rooms also contain kitchens) and small bar. Breakfast costs an extra Nkr55, linen Nkr50 and parking Nkr175 per 24 hours. The location isn't very scenic, but it's convenient, with Grünerløkka and the city centre only a five-minute walk away.
