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.

The trip began on April 28, 1947. Heyerdahl and five companions sailed the raft for 101 days over 6900 km (4,300 miles) across the Pacific Ocean before smashing into a reef at Raroia in the ...
... Dutch couple and slept some more.. We were in Oslo in no time, and when I woke up, we had already landed!! I asked the Dutch man if he saw fjords and mountains from the sky and he laughed and said yes! Noooo
The weirdest thing was, once I retrieved my bag from the baggage claim, there was nothing more... Like I just walked out the "nothing to declare" hallway, and there was the biggest duty-free shop I've ever seen in my travels across 6 continents with the ...
... met up with a delightful lady from Melbourne, Anne, who is travelling alone and we enjoy her stories and good humour as we travel along. Gudvangen is the starting point of the ferry trip that will take us through the fjords to Flam at the end of the trip. It is only a short wait till the ferry arrives and we board, find a nice spot on the back deck to enjoy the scenery when our peace and quiet is interrupted by a large tour group of Indians that cram on the deck, not to take ...
... with help) to buy a ticket on the train into town ($20) and walk from the main railway station to our hotel, which was just a couple of blocks away. Then ripped off all the excess clothes. Quite a strange hotel - has an automated check in with no reception - though a guy will pop up if you need help (which we did). Eventually made it up to the room and it is quite spacious compared to how we have been living the ...
