Be nice :)
Perfect location in Oslo!!! Basically you can walk to most sights (central station is a 3 min walk) and together with the city bike cards (kindly provided by Kung and Martin), we havent paid a dollar for transportation!!! The house is just as professional as a good hostel, with everything you need including a nice kitchen. Kung and Martin are very kind and nice who always take the initiative to offer help. In general I cant find anything to complain about, a wonderful bnb experience!:)
Good directions, great location, friendly welcome.
It is a lovely and very clean house! around 10 minutes away to central station, easy to find and quite comfortable. Martin is a perfect guider about Oslo city. He can show you everywhere and give details about buses, trams and prices. For us it was quite useful.. Thank you so much!
Martin and Gung were very welcoming and accommodated for my change in plans perfectly. The place is ideal if you are coming from the central station or bus terminal and most things are in walking range. Martin gave me some tips and a guide to the city to get me started and I had a great stay :) Bed was comfy, shower was warm, couldn't ask for more.
I was traveling with my parents and we arrived late at night but Martin is waiting for us. He showed us around the apartment and provided many useful information. They are very experienced host and know exactly what the guests need. Very thoughtful, friendly, and helpful :) The location of the apartment is very close to Oslo central train station (5-10 mins walking, 10-15 mins in our case with many luggages) and very easy to find. The instruction was very clear and they replied to me very quickly. Since I was traveling before arriving Oslo and forgot to tell them the arrival/departure time, they were so kind to sent me message to confirm. We had our own key for the gate, apartment, and room. The kitchen is well-equipped and accessible for the guest as well. We had a nice breakfast in the apartment. The room for three people is very big, looks exactly the same as the description but feel much more space when we arrived. They provided clean towel for each guests which is really nice :) Me and my parents enjoyed the apartment very much. Highly recommend!!!

About the Host, Gung & Martin
We are a couple in the mid 30's who love to travel and to experience new cultures. He is ethnic Norwegian and she is ethnic Thai. We travel mainly to Europe and Asia but as long as there is a boat or plane going there we'll be there sooner or later.
We have now done this for a little while and we're glad to see we become more and more popular here on AirBnB. Still not one single bad experience and when we have guests from different nations together at the same time i really gets lively and interesting. Namaste, Sawatdee khap and Hello to all you world travelers (^_^)
