Cheap accomodation??

by jvictor28

Hi Everyone,

I am staying in Oslo for a few nights in July-- usually we are camping or staying in hostels, but I can't find a hostel anywhere for less than $35/night...does anyone have advice about a cheaper option in Oslo?? I have tried couchsurfing but haven't had luck finding anyone...if someone has advice for me for a cheaper place to stay, please share! THANK YOU!!

Dunno the rates now but have you checked Anker Hostel or Coch's Pensjonat?

Believe it or not, that is what I paid for a night 15 years ago at a hostel. It is not cheap there. I tried couchsurfing and gloabalfreeloaders.com and it seems not to work. It's a good idea, but do not depend on it eventhough I housed many forginers in my house.Good Luck and Cheers Tommy x

I agree; the rates are not cheap in Oslo. Have you checked hostelworld.com, hostelbookers.com, or www.hihostels.no? Enjoy!

$35 roughly equals 225 NOK. You'll be too lucky to find anything at that sort of price in Oslo, let alone something cheaper.

Perminalen (hostel in the city centre, www.perminalen.no) is 370 NOK pr night in a 4-bed dorm.

Haraldsheim (youth hostel not in the city centre, www.haraldsheim.no) is 245 NOK in a 4-bed dorm without a bathroom (+ another 50 if you need linen).

Sentrum Pensjonat og hostel (www.sentrumpensjonat.no, obviously in the centre, but with an excellent view of *cough* "goings ons at night) charges 290 for a dorm bed.

Anker and Cochs are both more expensive. I've stayed at Haraldsheim and Sentrum Pensjonat. Haraldsheim is nice, Sentrum pensjonat you should avoid if you can. It's noisy and shady and I slept in my sleeping bag to avoid contact with the sheets. If you have a tent, you could always go camping at Sognsvann or something?

Travel Tips for Oslo

Sunset

by Kid-A

Although our stay in Oslo was very short (only 2 days), the sunset on the first night, looking down on the city and the harbor from that old fort was very nice. We weren't alone -- I think lots of people like to walk around there and look around.

Edvard Munch

by polardabar

Edvard Munch (1863 - 1944) was a famous Norwegian painter. He was a pioneer in expressionism, so he has a special role in the art history in all of the Nordic countries. There is a museum in Oslo which contains a collection of his paintings, drawing & graphic works.

Check out my Must Sees for more info on the Museum.

Visit the Sculpture Park. The...

by Shar

Visit the Sculpture Park. The artist portrays all human emotions in real life size bronze scultures. Their are 100's of bodies and faces all over the park leading up to the main todem pole of bodies reaching about 50meters into the air. It really was a moving expereonce to look at the work gone into every piece and you could spend hours on each one wondering what the story behind its face meant.

EATING AND DRINKING

by Maria_75

Going to a restaurant or going out in Oslo can empty your pockets quite quickly! But you can find many cheap places too. Very generally you can say that the westside is more expencive than the eastside, but of course there are exceptions to the rule.

Aker Brygge, Bogstadveien and Majorstua are the most expencive areas in the city. They are definetly worth checking out, but eat and drink somewhere else if you are on a budget.

Grønland is one of the cheapest places, and it's close to the bus- and trainstation. There are lots of small and charming places here, and also many exotic. This area is getting more and more popular though, so some more fancy (and expencive) restaurants and bars have opened here the last years.

All over the city you can find small kebabshops which normally are very cheap. Check a bit around and you might get a meal for about 5 USD.

In most of the big discos and nightclubs you have to pay an entrance fee, and it does not give you a free drink (or anything). Normally the fee is about 10 USD or more. Some places you are also required to leave your jacket in the wardrobe, and prices are from 1 to 4 USD. But there are many good places where you can enter for free, so if you don't have so much money to spend it might be better going to these places. Especially if you want to go to more than one place.
