Gung was so lovely and helpful and offered us loads of suggestions for things to do in the area and was very kind. Gung and Martin have a really lovely, welcoming home and Freya was adorable and lots of fun. The location is good, super close to the train station which suited us perfectly as we had to leave early the next morning. We had the medium sized room which was actually really large and comfortable, the beds were great, bedding was clean as were the towels.
Thank you so much for having us in your lovely home!
We had a very nice stay with Gung and Martin. They welcomed us at the door and gave us the lay of the land. They then left us alone. It was really nice that they provided building keys as well as room keys. It made me feel very secure leaving items in the room.
Martin and Gung are really really nice! Although we live on the 2nd / the 3rd floor, Martin helped us to carried our heavy luggage. Because we left at 11pm by train in the last day, Martin and Gung let us to leave our luggage in the house. As we were afraid that it is not good to stay too long in the house but Martin just said you can stay until 9-10pm so you don't need to walk around till 11pm to catch the train. They were really nice! They also helped us a lot about travelling in Oslo. The room, kitchen and the toilet are tidy and clean. We had a very comfortable stay there. Thank you so much!
We had a brief, but lovely stay with Gung and Martin. We arrived late and they were more than happy to accommodate that. The room was comfortable and quiet and we had full access to the kitchen. The location was great as well, very easy to get to the train station.

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 (^_^)
