Well worth a return stay
Unusual at first but really enjoyed the stay. Room wasn't shared only bathroom and plenty of those. Great to have a kitchen and washing machine in our block. Parking for motorcycle was easy but can't work out why they wanted to restrict our movements by motorcycles perhaps OH&S too cautious. Supermarket nearby also public transport. Breakfast was excellent and enjoyed the capability to have tea & coffee 24/7 also a library and games to use. Also a hostel if member.HiUSA. Would stay again. Helpful staff at reception. Others had a problem in locating but my Tom Tom GPS took me to the front door.

Summer in Oslo !
We were lucky to be on Oslo with pure blue sky weather, wall to wall sun from 6am till 11pm !! The location of this place is amazing, perched on a hill overlooking the whole Oslo area with far ranging views out to the Fjiord. Getting there is a little tricky though but as long as you take the right Tram (11 or 12) and get off 2 stops before the end of the line, all is fine. In the evening the air was crisp and clean. You get a good breakfast here and the whole place is very pleasant.

Relaxing break in Oslo before Svalbard
Stayed here away from center to see real Oslo life , before heading to Arctic (Svalbard). Very clean and quiet, other than construction. Good breakfast and wifi. Did leave a day early as the construction blasting was a bit noisy - unfortunate , but this is a one off, not normal. Will stay again next summer if here.
Stayed 4 nights in Jul 2017
