The Space

Very cheap room in the city center of Oslo for rent.

If you’re on a budget, this is the place to stay (just compare the price to the price for a hotel room in the same area!) The price is lower than what you would pay in a hotel or hostel in the same area, but there is more to this place that can save you money on your Oslo trip. There is a low price supermarket in the same building where you can buy cheaper food. Furthermore, you can also reach many attractions by foot – no need to buy expensive tickets. And finally if you book with me, I’ll give you some additional tips that will save you time and money on your Oslo trip – guaranteed ;)

You'll be in good hands. I'm an experienced host and I've welcomed hundreds of happy guests from all over the world. If you doubt, take your time to read the more than 400 positive reviews below :)

The room is located 5-10 minutes by walk from the main bus / train station (very convenient if you are coming or going to the airports / trains). The room is also located close to the main streets of Oslo and several tourists attractions such as the Munch Museum and the New Opera and Ballet. It wont take you more than 10 minutes to reach the main street of Oslo (Karl Johan).

I have city bike cards that can be rented for 50 NOK per person, much cheaper than renting them from the tourist information ;) Tell me if you are interested in this option.

Please always contact me before you make a booking. I'm online most of the day and will get back to you instantly or within a few hours.

About the room:

- Comfortable double bed
- High speed wireless internet connection
- Modern bathroom with heated floor (shared)
- Very central location
- Towels and bedsheets provided
- I'm available throughout your stay
- No hidden fees or extra costs, except the mandatory Airbnb fee.
- No direct access to kitchen, but you'll have your own microwave and some plates / cups at your disposal.
- I've already welcomed more than 100 happy guests from all over the world, take your time to read the reviews below ;)

The room is not very big, but should be comfortable enough for shorter stays.

The flat is in a well insulated building with central heating, therefore the rooms in my flat are always warm and comfortable, even on the coldest winter days.

Within 250 m from the flat you'll find:
- Norwegian restaurant
- 24/7 open grocery store
- Tram / bus stop
- Hairdresser
- Gym (costs 100 NOK per work out session)
- Chinese restaurant
- Indian resturant
- several pubs, stores and cafes

I'm an experienced host. I have welcomed more than 100 happy guests from all over the world and I have met a lot of great people through Airbnb.

Your place will be cleaned and ready till the given check in time, but If you need to store your luggage before or after check in / check out, this can in most cases be arranged (quite convenient since the flat is just a short walk from the station). Please notify me in reasonable time in front of your stay if you need this extra service :)

Questions? Don't hesitate to contact me and I'll normally get back to you immediately or within few hours.

I am looking forward to hearing from you.

  • Great place, very convenient for Oslo and at a reasonable price. Everything you need is there. 3 minutes walking to Bus Terminal,10 minutes to center. Supermarket working till 24.00 is in the next door building. Definitely will stay there again and recommend this host to my friends. Jan is responsible, friendly, easy-to-deal-with person who is ready to answer all your questions. Thanks!

  • Staying at Jan's was very convenient. The room was exactly what we needed, perfectly situated near the bus and train stations, and everything was meticulously explained and prepared, or taken care of, once we arrived. It was also nice to enjoy the Mekanisk Verksted bar only 2 mins away. Great place!
    Thanks Jan for a nice visit, we totally recommend your place.
    A bientôt !

  • Great host, sure will be part of good memories of my stay in Oslo . The whole process was done in a efficient way, and our brief chat after dinner was nice. I bet that if I would have had more time, it would have been amazing to share more moments.
    I deeply enjoyed the offered possibility of having some breakfast, as that helped my tight schedule.
    The room is comfortable.

  • If you are planning to stay in Oslo just for a few nights - this room is perfect. It's really affordable, clean and nice. The location is great - just a few steps from the Railway Station and Bus Terminal. Jan is really nice host - helpful and polite. He gave us maps and also he has a suggestions-list to help tourists to see and do more!
    Thank you!

  • Despite the water break at the flat Jan made the experience in Oslo wonderful as he put us up in an hotel for the two nights we were there. Jan met us at the flat and took us to the hotel after apologizing for any inconvenience. I would definitely endorse Jan as a man with integrity!

    September 2013
  • Great flat in a perfect location, very close to bus terminal and train station, and other facilities plus city centre. The apartment is new, clean and really beautiful, with an amazing view over the district; the host is kind and easy to talk with. I would definitely suggest it!
