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.

... we expected. All of the signs were in Norwegian which doesn't have any similarities to English at all! We booked a room in a hostel, which was a first for me so I was a little nervous of what it might be like. Luckily we picked a hostile that was very nice and close to the city centre! It was very similar to a hotel, mainly because I got a private room instead of a room with bunk beds. The only difference between this hostel and a hotel was that the ...
... city hall, Radhus, is grand though not beautiful. Contains some interesting murals covering Norway's history and a collection of gifts from visiting ambassadors from around the world.
I had a cheap version of the typical Aker Brygge lunch by buying the ingredients for a prawn mayonnaise sandwich myself and sitting looking over the marina.
Really enjoyed the contemporary art museum which ...
... a view of the "Opera House" (not in Sydney!!) Opera house is an orchesta place where there's plays at most nights. The building structure resemble as "piano".
Mel and I decided we want to have Nowegian dinner. Apparently the restaurant wasnt open. So we opted for a bistro nearby and had salmon. Beautiful salmon, so fresh and "flaky". Good dinner. Tomorrow we are leaving for Stockholm, 6 hours train trip and we have to get up early in the morning for the ...
... long time before the situation in Syria is resolved. It also showed the risks faced by teams tasked with the practical removal of these substances. Nasty painful death in some cases. Apparently they have to do regular "alertness" drills when they're not in the field to maintain the state of mind they need on the job. I don't think I could do that, but they do - for months at a time. I think that's as significant a sacrifice as most war heroes, and in pursuit of peace and ...
... having it again. It wasn't as gamey as I was expecting, but I can't really describe the taste - only that it was good. So the next day, (Sunday, and my third day in Oslo) we headed out on a group walking tour of the city, and even though I had already visited most of the places we went to, it was nice to get a bit more of the background and history of the city from our tour leader. After that, we all headed up to Hollmenkollen, the famous ski jump just outside Oslo, ...
