Good location, small rooms but very clean. Service was good and very helpfull. At september 2011 there where construction on the train station so it was a quite laoud in the morrning. The parking space is shared with train station.

The most basic hotel I stayed in and little different in price to others. Rooms clean and comfortable, but no chair and no soap in either dispenser. The room was literally right on the station - drop something out of the window and it would land on the platform. But surprisingly noise wasn't a problem.
Reception difficult to find as it's merges into the station cafe - which is where the breakfast is served, and it's quite good. It also has a self catering kitchen.
A bit of an uphill climb to the town - but Lillehammer is like that and it's not that far.

Room Tip: You can choose between the railway platform side or the bus station side. Neither seems particularly...

I enjoyed my stay here. The room was spotless as was the bathroom. There is glazing to prevent any noise from the trains. The bed was comfortable. Fantastic breakfast with a large choice. There is also a cafe that serves lunch and dinner, I ate there one night and the food was very good and not too expensive (for Norway where all food is expensive). The other nights I bought food from the supermarket nearby and used the shared kitchen which is well stocked with equipment and clean. Make sure you don't leave the station to find the hotel - I walked around for a while outside the station looking for the hotel, but the reception is inside the station. Also, make sure you hold your key card to the door to lock it.

This is actually not a hostel but more a hotel. It is VERY clean and new. The rooms are equipped with the basics of good quality. The breakfast was served in the cafeteria where you pick up the key card and was really, really good (eggs, spreads, different cheeses, veggies, fruit, cereals etc). The hostel is also located in a very convenient place and if you arrive with train, very easy to find. Some of the staff weren't that friendly(no smiles etc) but such attitude is quite common in the service industry in Norway. I was disappointed to find out that there was no shampoo in the bathroom even though there was a a shampoo container in the wall. I didn't pay myself but the prices displayed on their website are quite high but again; this is Norway and everything is expensive.

This hostel is convenient - close to town, easy walking distance to Olympic park and ski jumps. It is so easy to get to. Straight on the regional train at Oslo airport, at Lillehammer in 1hour and 45 minutes and upstairs to the hostel.
All rooms have just been renovated and are fresh and clean with good bathrooms. It is great to overlook the railway station through the triple glazed windows that keep in the warm and keep out any noise.
The kitchen is well equipped with a big fridge, good stoves and enough crockery and cutlery and pots and pans.

Room Tip: Ensuite rooms are good. Rooms for 3 are good too.

I have stayed here at least 4 times per year between 3 and 5 night for the last 5 years while on assignments in Lillehammer. The location is excellent with everything in the "city" within walking distance. The buses for the ski resorts stop just outside. I stay in a single room (which is the same as a double room). The beds are narrow but very comfortable. You have a small TV and free WiFi (that has not been working very good lately and the ability to fix the problem seems to be lacking). The new rooms are very nice and the new kitchen area is more functional than the old one even if the cupboards are a bit empty - don't expect a lot of cooking utensils and porcelain. The staff is great and very helpful and the breakfast buffet is very decent but don't expect any warm food except the coffee an hot chocolate.

Room Tip: Rooms on the west side have views (but a bit noise from the railway)
