  1. i ivar

    “Mange svært gode opplevelser, benyttet dette stedet ukentlig til tider mvh under 60“

  2. G Guy
    Fat and old men 60+

    “Old and run down place, mostly visited by elderly and fat men +60. Hardly no guys under 40, perhaps 1 out of 10. Cabin doors are so worn down they can’t be locked (yes, the Norwegian gays don’t respect a shut door, so they actually force open the cabin doors..) Also they don’t seem to understand a no, even physical rejection doesn’t stop them from trying to touch you. Not very appealing. Lots of people using drugs, needles are often found lying around, but the owner just sits on his phone... Even if people are smoking joints no actions are taken...

    The smell of excrements during certain hours is vile and used condoms lying around everywhere shows lack of maintenance and cleaning during opening hours. Lots of room for improvements also in attracting customers below 60 years old.“

    • B Benny
      Only place

      “Hercules may not be perfect, but if we had one more place it would 100 % be better...Anyhow...I like it, like the ppl who works there and all good crdeit and hugs to them from me :)“

  3. S Smark

    “It’s very boring. And expensive.“

  4. M Mauricio
    Very nice experience

    “I’ve been there this week (23 and 24/aug/2018) and I got surprised with the friendly staff member, the nice atmosphere: Norwegians are very handsome and easy to get contact. The sauna was, in my opinion, clean, big and with options enough to offer what people expect. All rooms have lubricants, condoms and toilet paper “à volonté”. Not expensive at all! The door is next to an African bar. Push the button “Hércules” and you go straight ahead to the door of the sauna.“

  5. S Sam
    Not great, but not bad...

    “I visited here at 5pm on a wet weekday - so was not sure what to expect.
    You buzz in through a gate next to an Asian restaurant and then go across a courtyard and up some stairs to get in.
    Only one staff member present and he was very helpful - as were the other patrons.
    Take care walking around - it is an old building, steep stairs etc.
    As is often the case, all it takes is one or two decent guys to make it a fun time... and this is what happened with me.
    It in an older crowd - but wait around and someone will show up... as they did with me.“

  6. A Andreas
    sexy guys

    “I´ve been there a couple of times. A lot of sexy Norwegians and lots of fun if you´re not too picky. Norwegians are good at it. Best to go there Friday, Saturday after 01am.
    Not clean but who cares.“

  7. P Phil
    Nice surprise!

    “Since my last visit 3 years ago I expected not the best, but last week I got surprised. The jacuzzi worked and water was hot, every 15 min. it runs for another 15 minutes, space enough for 3-4 guys. The finnish sauna was re-built and looks good, space for 6-8 men. Steam bath is meeting point downstairs. Showers newly renovated. Cabins are ok, but the sauna in the upper level was not in use. Visitors of all ages have mostly been tourists I guess; entrance fee NOK 175, free condoms all around and free coffee and cookies provided at the bar (at least Friday night).“

  8. V Vitor

    “It is not a friendly atmosphere, not a clean place, not interesting for the eyes...avoid!“

  9. J Jan

    “I visited the sauna on a Saturday late afternoon...there were only guys over 60! no young guys, the jacuzzi is ridiculous, sauna itself looks like it break down into itself, step and floor is creaking, worst sauna I have ever visited.“
