Great private room, sharing a bathroom with many
Great place to stay, i love the idea of sharing bathrooms, kitchen and lounge, but still having your own private bedrooms. However keep in mind, when sharing a bathrooms, you could potentially be sharing it with more than 10 people, so the line to the bathroom can be quite long of a morning.

Good location, apartments needing updated
Hotel in nice area close to the city centre and metro station. It was nice having a small kitchen considering the cost of food in Norway, however, it was really dated and was lacking most utensils to cook meals properly.

Basic but adequate accommodation
On arrival I was put into a room on the top floor which was so hot that I could not stay in it. It also involved several flights of stairs to get there. The picture on the site makes it look as if this place has two floors but that is not the case. When I spoke to reception and informed them the room was too hot to stay in they did move me to an apartment shared with three rooms which was on the ground floor and much cooler. Two of the rooms including mine had no window. My room had two narrow beds and a small wardrobe but no bedside table. I had the room to myself so I could put my case and stuff on the other bed but had two people been in there they would have to use the floor to put their cases on which would have been a problem for moving about in such limited space. The shared area had cooker, dishwasher and washing machine which was good but was sparse on basic cooking equipment. Superficially it looked clean but there was a large accumulation of dust under the bed. The shower was very good with lots of hot water The bed linen and towels were clean. The surrounding area had shops, two bakeries and place to eat. It is just a three to four minute walk to the T-bane offering a frequent service which gives easy access to buses, trams and ferries. Also making it easy to get to from the airport as Central Station is only two stops away where you can get the train to the airport.

Awesome ! Home away from home
Just overlook the name “ Shared apartment “ it simply an economical nice place to chill in. Fast check-in, friendly staff,private room in a comfortable apartment,super clean,good restaurant with tasty meals and seducing ambiance. I’ll no longer waste money on big hotels whenever I’m visiting Oslo. It is just a good place to stay.
