This was a good buget place to stay in Oslo. I was here with a friend in a two bed room for about 169 US Dollar. The room was better and more comfortable than the usual hostel quality but of course no hotel standard. We had an own bathroom with shower and for us it was just perfect because we usually prefer spending money in exploring the cities (which is expensive enough - exspecially in Oslo;-) than in having too much comfort during the short nights;-) The hostelhotel is very central, they had a pretty nice kitchen and you also could have things like wafers in between the normal times. A place where also lots of soldiers stayed but it still was a calm and comfortable place. Internet however did not really work. I think it is very comfortable to have the possibility. But it was fine anyhow. Here the internet linnk:
> I got the tip through my VT Posting by Bernd L, so here you get the link to his description:
By recommendation from VT friend Bernd_L we stayed at the Perminalen, a ho(s)tel in the very center of Oslo. The Perminalen is central as central can be and within walking distance of the train station, the Akerhus festning, the townhall, harbor, palace - the best location that you could wish.
We had booked beds in a 4-bedded room and were fortunate that the fourth bed remained empty that night! The bathroom was great - very clean, great shower and everything. Towel had to be rented at the reception.
The breakfast was excellent: a buffet with such a variety of food that I hardly knew what to choose!
There is just one thing that you have to be prepared to when considering the Perminalen as your place to stay: do not expect a cozy atmosphere - it used to be an accomodation for the Norwegian Army and it still is more a hostel than a hotel - but then: you are not there to enjoy the hotel, but rather to venture out to see Oslo, aren't you???
Directions: within walking distance from the trainstation
We stayed at this budget hostel because it was located in downtown within walking distance of a lot of attractions and it is affordable. It is owned by the Norwegian military but run by a hotel company. The military uses the rooms for their soldiers when they visit Oslo.
The rooms were newly renovated and equipped with TV. But expect no luxury. In their cafeteria you get not only a good breakfast buffet but also affordable lunch and dinner.
So if you are on a budget this is the place to stay in Oslo.
