Compared to many other European cities, Oslo does not have that many hostels or alternatives for backpackers. And the standard of the rooms and services varies a lot. This is one of the reasons why K7 Hotel Oslo has introduced it’s own alternative to a hostel.

We simply call it “Dorms“. It’s literally the same as a hostel, where some of our bigger rooms have been converted to dorms, with multiple bunk beds and lockers.
