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.

Brede was a very welcoming host. He was around at the time we checked in and there was no hassle at all. He has all the information related to the place in a nice folder so you have answers to a lot of questions even if he is not around. The place is amazing in a beautiful old but very well maintained building. The location is very central, so we did not have to lug our bags from the bus terminal and also to most points of interest. If you do get tired at the end of the day there are a lot of buses and trams leaving from the station that is just a minute away from the place. The bed, bathroom and common areas are all very nicely decorated and kept clean. There are a lot of plants in the place which add a lot of life and character to the apartment.
Brede ist ein sehr netter Gastgeber und hat uns hilfreiche Tipps für den Aufenthalt in Oslo gegeben. Die Wohnung liegt sehr zentral. Wir sind drei Nächte geblieben und haben uns sehr wohlgefühlt. Die gesamte Wohnung war sehr ordentlich und das Zimmer sehr bequem und geräumig, sowie auf den Bildern.
It was an absolute pleasure staying with Brede.
The communication beforehand was pleasant and easy and he already made us feel welcome weeks in advance of our trip.
The apartment is perfectly located in between the tourist citycenter and the hip Grønland and Grünerløkka. The room is spacious, clean and lovely decorated so you don't feel like a customer in a hotel but a guest with a friend.
Brede himself is not only helpfull to all your tourist-needs, but also a great conversation-partner if you want to know more about living in the city you visit.
The tips he provided were all spot on and we believe his place, tips and personalty were a huge contribution to our citytrip to Oslo.
Good location and pretty close to the center make it a perfect place to enjoy Oslo. Great flat, very stylish , clean and exactly like the pictures. 1min walk fron public transportations. Brede was extremely friendly, helpful and gave me advice on the local area and how to get around. A place that I can recommend anyone to come to. Overall a wonderful experience 5 stars and a big thank you to Brede :)
Brede is a very relaxed friendly guy with great tips on local food, drink etc.
I stayed for over 2 months and found the location and quality of the flat to be fantastic for my needs! Shower is great, kitchen has everything you could possible need if you are that way inclined and the bedroom is huge and relaxing to be in.
Brede also was kind enough to provide extra items not normally provided with no hassle :-)
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!
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!
