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.

Forty minutes later I was back at the airport - surprising since it took me 3 hours going the other direction!

... lifted the tax rate on Sanatogen!! The proceedings was led by the choir singers but everyone could join in if so desired. The glǿgg (mulled wine) was free flowing and a party mood was taking shape. The tannoy from the bridge announced the arrival of Santa and suddenly this human shape appears atop the funnel waving fanatically at the awaiting crowds below. It was supposed to be the ‘fat’ man himself but the harness made him look like he had ...
Our journey by train had been a great success, minus the whole sleeping thing; but at least we arrived on time. We (and by we, I mean Hannah) found our next host's apartment without too much trouble. We got to talk for a few minutes before he had to leave for work. He even had keys to the apartment for both of us.
We got a bit behind schedule for the day, as we both decided a nap would be necessary before braving the city of Oslo and ...
