“Good but expensive”
Reviewed August 27, 2012

Stayed here 2 nights for Birkebeinerrittet bike race. The double room was nice and clean; the sleeping was very good, and despite beign just over the 1st track of the station, we didn't hear any noise from trains.

We used the well-furnished kitchen: it was cleaned every day, but some bad guests left dished and other equipments really dirty. The rich breakfast buffet is served in the cafè at 1st floor, where you can also have lunch and dinner.

In the end, this is more a hotel than a hostel. The vote is 4. It isn't 5 just because during this days they raised the prices only to gain much money from participants at the bike race.

Nice price, very good service. Not fancy, but enough. Stayed one night, passing through Lillehammer.

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.
