You should probably stay here for two reasons: Price and location. It is less expensive than the other choices I found in the downtown Stavanger area. Rooms are spartan and staff almost non-existent. I can see why other reviewers compared this to a hostel. You check in, eat breakfast (a good breakfast), and check out at the Victoria Hotel next door. My room did not get cleaned one day. There is no wardrobe or dresser for clothing - only a few hooks on the wall, so even as a solo traveler I was living out of my bag. I could not see evidence of a recent renovation but at least it was not that run down. The hallways are somewhat of a maze, and the elevator does not support every floor, so I had to drag my suitcase up several flights of stairs. This area of Stavanger has a lot of traffic, and most windows face a narrow street and another building - the noise level may be too high for light sleepers, especially on a Friday or Saturday night. That said, the room was clean, not spacious but not cramped, the bed comfortable, and the location ideal for me, as I planned to tour the city on foot. The airport shuttle bus stop is at the harbor about 100 meters away. If you want to save some money and you don't need pampering, then the Skansen is a reasonable option.
