I'm a musician and composer. I travel quite a bit and I enjoy meeting new people. I know Oslo quite well and I'd gladly help out with tips on things to do, things to see, good restaurants, good coffee and cocktails, bars, concert venues, etc.

Super! Great AirBnB
Brede's apartment was one of the key things that really made my trip enjoyable. The room was exactly as described. It was quiet and comfortable. The common areas - kitchen, bathroom... were very clean and accessible.
The best thing about his apartment was the strategic and central location. This was a XC ski vacation for me and I needed to change clothes before and after skiing before other activities. This was made possible by how close it was to the tram and bus station (Brugata, ~ 300 feet). Oslo S Central train station and Jernbanetorget metro station were also within walking distance.
Lastly, Brede was a very friendly and helpful host. He made sure that I was comfortably settled in his place. I did minimal pre-travel planning this time. Brede was very kind and offered solid recommendations on cafes, restaurants and places to check out. I would stay at his place again if I revisit Oslo.
Brede's apartment is lovely - very stylish, clean and the kitchen has everything you need. Location was perfect! Brede was a kind host who was happy to meet me even though I arrived late at night. I would certainly stay here again and would recommend it to others!
We loved our stay at Brede's sexy apartment in Oslo for 2 nights including Christmas eve and Christmas Day. Not only was the location perfect and central, the apartment itself was completely amazing. Comfy bed, fireplace, living room, and wonderful kitchen that we used many times- not to be taken for granted in a pricey city like Oslo. Nearby was downtown, central station less than 10 mins away, super cute Grunerlokka, and we also we checked out Revolver, Bla, and Cacadou bars, all within 10 mins walking. We seriously wish we could have stayed longer... or forever... thanks so much Brede :)
This place was a dream! Brede is an exceptional host although, unfortunately we did not get to meet him. The flat is beautiful and VERY stylish. The fireplace alone requires a whole separate review!!! We enjoyed staying there so much that our last evening was mostly spent indoors with the fire burning! This place is smack bang in the very middle of Oslo and within short and enjoyable bus-rides from the Viking Ship and National Museums. Absolutely loved everything about this place, the host and Oslo!
Great, spacious apartment right in the centre of Oslo. Highly recommended!
Brede's place is absolutely cosy, stylish and perfectly located in the city center. He put out a second bed for us since we preferred separate beds, everything was super clean and nice. He even bought some firewood for the fireplace in the room. We had a great time and Brede's hospitality was exceedingly well, he had prepared some tips for Oslo and offered us many times advice and help. Next time in Oslo only when his place is available ;)!
The apartment is awesome. The location is great, so close to the city center. The photos are giving a good representation of how it is in reality. Clean, spacious, good bed, good facilities. Brede is very hospitable and kind. He gave us some good advice (must sees and food/drinks) and does everything to make you feel comfortable. In short, highly recommended!
I really enjoyed staying at Brede's place in Oslo. The location is a short walk to a buses, trams, and trains(5minutes). The space is roomy and inviting, great for a few nights or even a longer stay. Brede is welcoming, helpful, friendly and full of useful information. I highly recommend this listing!
Brede's place was comfortable and well located next to all facilities. We didn't have the chance to meet him but he left for us clear directions and instructions. His apartment is recommendable.
Perfect guests !
Brede and his girlfriend are wonderful hosts. I hope to may have them at my home again or to be host myself in Oslo. I recommend them!!
Brede is a truly a super reliable and sympathetic guy. Would not hesitate for a second on letting him stay at my place..!! I also love his cool apartment in down town Oslo, and can recommend it to anyone. It`s clean, spacy and very fashionable in a relaxed way. It`s also located in the heart of Central Oslo. Anyone would be lucky to have him as a guest, or landlord..
We've known Brede for ages and consider him a lifelong friend. Brede is full of creative energy, a great conversationalist and a man to trust. Brede is a gracious, welcoming and respectful host. His good taste shines through in the feel and style of his apartment. He keeps the place clean, comfortable and modern. His apartment is an ideal base for any traveller to Oslo - we definitely recommend staying with Brede!
I met Brede in like 1998 when we were in College together. Obviously he's adventurous and loves travel as he was the lone Norwegian that was up for the trans-continental migration to the US for 4 years.
I also know him as a host, as I had the extremely fortunate opportunity to see his version of Oslo in 2012. His knowledge is deep, he never gave us a bad recommendation and he is super easy to get along with.
My first memory when he really stood out in my mind was when all the music students put on an electro-acoustic concert with original compositions.... Brede absolutely KILLED it.. It's pretty rare to see an entire concert full of people with their collective jaws dropped. AND, he was really humble about it, like, "no big deal, I'm from Norway and I like to make music, I'm glad you liked it."
I'd put my trust in Brede in a heartbeat, he's an excellent host, he's really fun to hang out with and you will love his super cool apartment. Highly Recommended!
