Pros:Location was close to the city centre (10-minute walk to the station) and the price for a room is dirt cheap! The bed was also very comfortable, the room had all the basic supplies you needed, including an oven. When I do return to Norway again, I'll definitely be back at the Anker Hostel!
Cons:There is a roof-top viewing area that we have access to from 9am to 8pm was locked throughout the day, meaning I never got a chance to enjoy the views from the hostel roof. Noise isolation wasn't great, you could hear the water pipes in use throughout the building.
