Top tips for finding Oslo hostel deals

  • If you are hoping to save money on your trip to Olso, then it might be a good idea to look for Oslo hostels that provide you with self-catering facilities. This is a good idea as eating out can be quite expensive in this Nordic city. For example, one such accommodation which provides you with kitchen facilities is Anker Hostel. Within the kitchen, you can use a stovetop, refrigerator and oven, so you can cook up a storm whenever you please. The hostel is also only 4min walk away from the closest supermarket, so you can go and get all the ingredients you need with ease.
