The food was lying in the refridgerated glass cabinets, but we don't know for how long. The cucumbers were already mouldy, so we didn't feel comfortable eating the other things in glass cabinets (such as salmon and ham). Taking the price of this room into consideration (40€ per person for a room for two persons) and comparing it to other hostels in Norway, this building (prefab construction) was definitely not worth the price. Not to recommend.

The staff was a bit cold with the exception of one very nice girl at the desk. The breakfast was okay. The building was a little creaky but with a marvelous view. The thing that really put me off about the place was security. There were no lockers in the rooms. The doors had standard keys which any careless tenant could forget to lock from the outside upon leaving. And the place seemed to be under construction by a group of large men who were genuinely threatening.

Hostel en décrépitude, sale, chambre faite pour une personne normalement. Jolie vue et personnel serviable. Petit-déjeuner douteux. A éviter ! Pas fait pour les touristes.

Poor instruction for the hostel location. Not enough sign. The room was too cold that I got sick on the next day. The blanket was not clean and it should be thicker. The big hole between shower rooms made me feel insecure. Also, I think there should be more hooks in the showers room. The breakfast place was messy. I was the first customer but it seemed that no one tidy up the place. The bread basket was super messy, no cover at all, and the bread seemed not fresh. The sanitation was totally bad.
