      Though found on Hostelworld, this is actually a hotel that has some rooms in which they put bunk beds and rent out as hostel beds. Actually much of their clientele appeared to be soldiers and cadets, so these dorm rooms likely serve as barracks most of the time. The room was about $10 more expensive ($65/night) than a regular hostel in Oslo (i.e., HI hostels), but since all the hostels in Oslo are pretty pricey, I decided to splurge for an en-suite in a four bed dorm, and full included breakfast to offset the expense of getting lunch in town.

      My room was clean and comfortable with a large bathroom. WiFi is available for free in the lounge downstairs, but not in the rooms. The highlight was indeed the buffet breakfast with lots of options. The traditional Norwegian breakfast (bread, eggs, fish, jams) were very tasty, filling and saved me both time and money while on the run in Oslo.

      I think for a hostel experience (really being able to get to known people and hang out in common spaces), go for one of the HI hostels, since there was no guest mingling here. However, if you want some quiet alone time and just a simple place to stay, it was a very comfortable experience.

Either way, it was an excellent meal: Fårikål (lamb and cabbage stew with salt and peppercorns, served with boiled potatoes). It was a perfect meal for the cold weather, so I can understand why it would be traditional.  This time, we set an alarm for ourselves, leaving plenty of time to pack and get to ...

      ... tea and scones with Christel and Ray later on in the evening, yum! Friday, was a complete lazy day watching tv and researching for Australia! In the evening, myself and June went to a Thai restaurant in Oslo for dinner which was pretty cool and then headed to a small bar for some drinks. Saturday, another lazy day! Except for having Ray's nachos in the evening with a few beers! Ray always makes nachos on Saturdays and has done for about 15 years! They ...

      On all good things there's an end. Today was our last day in Norway before we take the ferry again tomorrow to go back to the mainland.
      Woke up and had breakfast on the terrace of the house. The weather allowed, but the forecast from the internet as well as the locals predicted the end of 'good weather season' around 4 pm this afternoon. So, we left in summer clothing but equipped with warm and ...

      ... one street in front of the train station. with the time difference, the train pulled into Oslo station about 1.30am, of course my map didn't want to load, a local girl walked me down the right street to find this hotel. I checked in and up to the 7th floor, down every corridor possible to get into my 'basic single' room, it was now way past 2am. I'd unpacked my bag for the essentials I'd need in the morning, my train in ...

Oslo Cathedral. This Lutheran Church is home to royalty with a box seat high above the pews and it is somber compared to most Catholic cathedrals. In the courtyard is a temporary memorial to the 71 people shot by deranged man Breveit in 2011. 4. Karl Johan's Gata. This is the ...
