Anker Hostel - Oslo

2 stars
Storgata 55, west side, Oslo, N-0182, Norway, ‏‎1-877-214-4288
A 10-minute walk from Oslo's main street, the Anker Hostel offers budget 2 star Oslo accommodation within a short walk or tram ride of the city's most famous sights, such as the Royal Palace, as well as major concert venues like the Oslo Spektrum and the Norwegian Opera. It is also incredibly easy to reach as all trains and buses from Oslo Gardermoen and Torp Airports arrive at Oslo Central Station or Central Bus Station, both in close proximity to the Anker Hostel.

The Anker Hostel is a great place to stay for Oslo backpackers as well as anybody who is searching for a cheap holiday in the Norwegian capital. Here you will find no-frills accommodation that is comfortable and clean as well as all of those cannot-live-without items that are a real pain to carry around, such as towels, bedlinen, pillows and duvets. However, please remember that no sleeping bags are allowed.

There is a comfy lounge at the Anker Hostel in Olso which has a PC with broadband internet access and a café bar serving hot and cold drinks (including both soft drinks, beer and wine), as well as light meals, such as pizzas, lasagne and waffles, topped with Norwegian brown cheese. You can also purchase sweets, telephone cards, toiletries, the Oslo card and stamps from reception. Furthermore, alarm clocks can be borrowed from reception upon the payment of a deposit as well as pots and pans to use in the communal kitchen. All in all, a one-stop backpacker's shop!
