Oslo Vandrerhjem

by written on August 5, 2010

Oslo Hostel Haraldsheim is close to a place I have been living for many years. It's a well establish hostel that offers budget accommodation. It offers single rooms to 4 bedded rooms. Breakfast buffet is included. The hostel is on a green hill overlooking Oslo city and the fjord.
The public transportation to downtown Oslo is good. The area is also a starting point for hikes in the neighbouring woodlands called "Marka".

Prices from NOK 245,- in dorms. Members of Hostelling International are entitled to 10% discount on the overnight price at arrival.

Unique Quality: The price level in Norway is high and accommodation can be costly if you don't have friends or know how to live cheaper. Staying at a hostel, or "vandrehjem", as it is called in Norway is cheaper than staying at a hotel. Although you don't have the same luxury.

Directions: GPS coordinates: 59.94075° N 10.78811° E
Sinsen/Grensen neighbourhood, which is a residential area 4 km from the city centre.

Haraldsheim is located bit far from the city center, i think that adds to the character of this hostel. It is a very calm place, but only when there are no school kids running around. Note that people of all ages stay in this hostel: you can see families and also some schoolkids programs. So it is not really a party type place. If you are looking for a relaxing place, this is it. It is away from the hustle of the city, but only a tram raid away.
It is clean, and has a very good breakfast (which is very convenient esp in Norway). I say best hostel, because I happened to see (from outside) some of the other budget hotels I had considered. At least from the outside, they were not appealing. Being away from the main streets makes it a safe place. I would definitely stay there again (if I can afford Norway again !!)

Directions: It could be bit confusing the first time if you take subway. At least the first time, take tram which stops closer to the hostel. You can actually see the hostel since it is situated on a small hill.

Great place to stay; super clean, friendly staff (and guests!), not too far out from the center of the city. Cheap compared to hotels, and an amazing breakfast.

Unique Quality: There is a particular view of Oslo from just outside the hotel. There is also a picnic bench outside, lots of green grass and football (soccer) field.

Directions: Tram 17, next to last stop, going towards Grefsen station.

I really do not remember if I have a picture of Oslo from this place, but for sure it was amazing.

Simple hostel, but comfortable and offering a great breakfest...

Good option!

Unique Quality: Hostels are always nice because of the different people you meet there...

A nice hostel...

by written on August 24, 2002

We stayed at the Haraldsheim Hostel which was really great!
We paid 160 KR each per night for dorm rooms (same sex only).
Email: oslo.haraldsheim.hostel@vandrerhjem.no

Unique Quality: It was clean and set out really well. The lounge was a great place to meet other travellers too.

Directions: Take tram 10 or 11 to Sinsen, then it's just up the hill nearby... The hostel is located about 4 kms from the centre of town.
