I stayed here for three nights in June when i was in Oslo. It is a former nurses home, and in some ways is quaint, and dated in places. On the plus side it is exceptionally clean and the price is reasonable for Oslo. It also has free internet throughout.

I stayed in a single room with a bathroom and shower across the hall. The room was good standard, no frills, and they give you an eye mask for sleeping as its bright most of the time. The one thing you have to be aware of is they don't remake beds etc during the stay. The toilet and shower were spotless and cleaned regularly.
Some of the rooms do offer ensuite facilities but they are limited in number.

The breakfast is self service but there is a good choice and very clean served in a large dining room. If you are coming into Oslo Central Station or Bus Station you can get the 37 bus in the direction of Nydalen T and it runs very regularly. Its about a 12 - 20 minute bus ride. Get off the bus and walk down the alley through various building and you are there in 5- 7 minutes.

The reception staff are very helpful, but they are only there during business hours, and at weekends these are limited.

If you want somewhere quiet it's the one

We stayed for 3 nights over a long weekend, combination of work and play in Oslo. The "guest house" was a very positive surprise! We got a huge room with en suite bathroom. Very tall ceilings, spacious and comfortable bed.
The room was old, with "un-modern" furniture - as expected, had free wifi - not expected :)
The breakfast was simple, but with a nice twist that we could make our own waffles.
Do not expect any service beyond basic - no room service, no lunch or dinner restaurant, but a lot of nice cafes and places in the neighborhood.
The guest house is part of a hospital and school for "diakon", a christian organization, so expect chapels and christian pictures etc. Was easily ignored by us.
The guest house also have some rooms with bathrooms in the corridor, for an even lower price.
Friendly staff.
Recommended for your stay in Oslo - easy to get to the city by bus around the corner.

The Guest house is run by the Diaconian hospital in the neighbouring buildings, but you don't need to be a Christian or visiting patiens to stay there. I've stayed at the Guest house several times because of work in Oslo. I've always found the rooms clean - this also applies to the shared toilets/bathrooms. The furnitures/decoration is old-fashioned, but this is part of the charm and you get this feeling that life is moving slower here (which I like). It's also a good place to stay if you want to cook or just use the shared fridge, because eating out in Oslo is quite expensive. Only in one room was I annoyed by the ventilation system (no aircondition), but they gave me another room, which was nice. Else it's very tranquille in the evenings, so it was always a place of rest for me after a long work day!

We are not churchgoers and were really surprised to find out that this guesthouse is actually run by a church organisation and I am not clear whether it was originally or is still a place for nuns / priests etc.
What I can tell for sure is that we found a bible on our bedside table in our room and there's a Mass every morning.
The room was spacious and clean and so were the shared bathrooms. The shared kitchen was small and basic. The wifi Internet connection is available for free but did not work in our room or in the corridor - only in the entrance hall.
The guesthouse location is quiet and it takes 15 minutes by bus to reach the centre of Oslo but I wouldn't recommend it as a place to stay unless you're a churchgoer!

I stayed here 5 days in october while taking follow-up studies at the university of Oslo. The guesthouse is in an old building in the middle of Lovisenberg diaconal hospital area. The hospital is owned by the private deaconess foundation and the "Parish sisters home" but it operates within the framework of public health.

The guesthouse has some rooms with ensuite bathrooms, while others have shared bathrooms in the hallway. The price is very friendly range from 400 NOK (50 Eur) per night to 950 NOK (119 Eur) depending on the room type incl. breakfast. On Weekends you have to buy breakfast at the Cathinka Guldberg-center nearby.

It is in a nice, beautiful and quiet residential area just 5 min. by bus from the mainstreet "Karl Johan" (bus nr. 37) If you would like to walk it would take you 30 min. by foot.

I stayed in room 225 a double bedroom with ensuite bathroom and it was nice. It did not have a TV - and I missed it (but there is a TV-room though). The guesthouse is very well maintained. Lots of space, high to the ceiling and furnished with old venerable furnitures. The breakfast was good but simpel by norwegian standard. All in all a good place to stay.
