Liked: The location of the hostel is perfect: central and still very quiet and calm. The breakfast is included in the room price, which is a good thing. The beds are very comfortable and the room spacious enough.

Disliked: There were no small saucepans in the kitchen for the use of single travellers / couples. The room was ok, but there was no place (cupboard or shelves) to store clothes. It's a bit difficult to keep them in the suitcase or backpack during the whole stay.

Liked: For the budget traveller this is a good choice, location can not be more central, in case you come late they will leave the key for you at First Hotel Breiset next door. The place have options for make your own food and a variety of games, or you can opt to eat at the cafe downstairs, which offer some real delicious food.

Liked: Nice breakfast!Good value for (little) money...Very friendly people.Clean room!

Disliked: It is (at) a train station... So, close the windows, otherwise you might wake up very early. The glass is well isolating the sounds from the trains outside the building. In other words: this should not be a big issue! Little mistake on the website: double ensuite, should be: twin ensuite. We did nog have a big bed, or two beds conjoined... Again, for us this was of no inconvienience

Liked: Clean and great facilities. Tv and Bathroom in room. No noise from the trains outside and good cooking facilities. Buses right outside the door to Hajfell and trains to Kvitfjell. Only issue is no alcohol in common room and therefore, people stuck to drinking in their rooms. No social atmosphere...but this could be the time we travelled

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

19 December 2009 Corey would recommend this property

Liked: The Lillehammer Hostel was very clean and nice; it's more like a hotel than a hostel. It's also rather pricey, but it's very difficult to compare this with other hostels since Norway is all-around much more expensive than the rest of Europe. It was a very pleasant stay and I would recommend it for anyone looking for a skiing/snowboarding getaway while in Norway.

Disliked: Corey left no negative feedback.
