Oslo is the capital of Norway and is famous for its quality of life, its maritime setting, and its abundance of arts and culture.
If you are looking for a hostel in Oslo, you should try to stay in one of the central boroughs, namely Sentrum, Gamle Oslo, or Grünerløkka. All three of them are very clean and safe neighborhoods with cute and well-kept buildings and lots of sights, museums, and parks. Note that Oslo hostels can be pretty expensive.
Oslo Gardermoen airport is located 45 kilometers outside of the city and it takes only 20 minutes to reach the city center by express train. There are also several bus services available. Oslo is also served by the airports of Torp and Rygge, which are a bit farther away but still within reach. You might find a bargain flight if you accept to fly into one of those two. Getting around in Oslo is no problem at all since there is an extensive public transport system which will take you anywhere you want to go.
While in Oslo, do not miss the Royal Palace, Stortinget (the Parliament), and the Akershus Fortress. For arts and design, head to the impressive National Museum, take a stroll in the Vigeland Sculpture Park on a sunny day, visit the museum dedicated to famous Norwegian artist Edvard Munch, and check out the Astrup Fearnley Museum for young and cutting-edge art. You can also enjoy the scenic views at the harbour and maybe catch an opera at the National Theatre before returning to your Oslo hostel.

"Anker Hostel is a modern, lively place that appears to be very popular with backpackers in a city where accommodation is very expensive. The whole block is owned by “Anker” and there’s a more luxurious Hotel Anker next door (we had read one review of the hostel in which the writer got an upgrade to the hotel -- sadly we weren’t so lucky) as well as an internet café a couple of doors down and an Italian restaurant that serves low cost...
HI - Oslo Haraldsheim Hostel
"The Haraldsheim hostel is ok. It is expensive (even for Norway) and a long way out of town. The only real choice is getting tram four to Sinsenkrysset but the way is not very well signposted. If you are coming from Oslo Gardermoen airport it is probably easier (and quicker and cheaper) to get the bus to Grefsen station and walk around the corner to the hostel. Being four kilometers out of town would not be a problem if there was no curfew at...

"Good staff but furniture needs a refurbishment - The staff were friendly and really helpful. However I didn't like to bother them for them to mak me a tea one evening. The TV lounge really comfortable but under populated. The TV in my room wasn't working. Not sure if a TV in a hostel room is a good idea anyway -- probably not. I don't trust wooden furniture in hostels after taking a bedbug infestation home from me one time. Old, unkempt...
HI - Oslo Rønningen Hostel
"This place provided me with one of the strangest nights of my life. I slept on a gymnasium floor on a flimsy mat with many very hairy men. The man next to me snored loudly. A nearby fellow laid bare on his mat wearing nothing but black bikini briefs. Another gent was having some kind of night tremors and began shouting, flailing and muttering in a foreign tongue. I was afraid most of the night. If you are a female travelling alone, find...

"MS Innvik has a great location and is a fun place to stay in Oslo. It is located a short, five- to ten-minute walk from Central Station. At the front of the station, facing the street and large clock tower, you turn left, crossing two streets. At the third street you'll see a bridge walkway, it is impossible to cross the street otherwise (due to a large barrier in center of street). Cross this bridge walkway and you will end up in a parking...
Oslo Travel Tips & Suggestions
This is a nice city but not the best in Norway. Don't miss the Frogner Park (also known as Vigeland Park). I've become a Vigeland's fan since I was in Oslo! You also have to visit the open air Folklore Museum, the Viking Boats Museum, and Akersus. And there's an amazing comics store in the train station!
I love this city! It's the best place on earth! Try and visit in January or mid-winter when there aren't too many tourists. The locals will happily show you around town. Some people probably won't get the ironic, self-deprecating attitude though.
Charming atmosphere and great jazz and rock bars! Frogner Park is just amazing.
Oslo's fantastic! Brilliant sight-seeing, delicious food, and it's really easy to get around. The Munch museum is a must if you like art and Frogner park really impressive. Just take care if you go near Skippergata at night. Otherwise, an excellent place for holiday!
Great city and a brilliant place for a holiday. However, avoid Skippergata, between Karl Johans gate and the harbour. It's a really bad area, especially at night!
We loved Norway, despite the high prices! Oslo is the most beutiful city i've ever seen. Be sure to go to Burgen: the train trip is amazing (book a seat in advance), and go to the market for free samples galore including smoked whale meat! As far as food goes, vegetarians be warned: there is not much for you in Norway. Supermarkets are easy to find (Oslo train station has 3 in it!) and you can survive on cheap chocolate chip cookies and bananas...

It's so cool there you don't wanna leave!
In reality, you really don't need to know a word of Norwegian to successfully get around Oslo or Norway in general. Know that "Heisann" is hello and takk (pronounced "tuck") is thank you. Everyone there speaks English. Also, ladies, Norwegian boys are hot and have cute accents.
