“A good accommodation option in Lillehammer!”
Reviewed 25 February 2013

Stayed in the HI Hostel in Lillehammer for 4 nights earlier this month in a double/twin room with ensuite bathroom. The room was basic but clean and most importantly, well insulated and warm given that it was between -10 and -20 degrees outside most of the time we were there! The shower was excellent but tended to flood the bathroom! The self-catering kitchen could be much better equipped, and I think it would be difficult to get space to cook if the hostel was full as there were only two cookers, each with two hobs, but the pans available were very large so you could not fit two pans onto the one cooker together! This meant that only one party of people could use the cookers at the one time. This said, it was great having access to a kitchen as eating out is too expensive. If you like wine with your meal, it would be advisable to bring this from home as it is prohibitively expensive in Norway and only on sale at dedicated off-licence shops that are only open from about 10 am to 6pm. The buffet breakfast - served in the cafe in the train station- was very good and worth the money. I think the hostel reception staff could have been a bit more helpful eg. even though they knew we were going to the ski resorts, they did not tell us about the free bus pass we could get to use on the public bus, so we only found out about it after we had paid for the bus for two days. The double room plus breakfast cost about £50 per person. This was quite good value for Norway, I think! I asked for a quiet room, but our room was facing onto the railway platform and trains passed until quite late at night and then early in the morning. However, unless you are a light sleeper, they probably would not disturb most people as the window is well insulated.

when my friend told me first that we will be staying in hostel, just on the train station, i could not believe and thought already about destroyed weekend. but it happened to be quite nice and not very noisy hotel, just on the 3rd floor of the train station. the double room costed around 120EUR per night with breakfast included, what is kind of costly for hostel (though on Scandinavian level and concerning location I think it was a good deal). the room was quite clean, the sheets and towels were ok quality, the toilet and shower (very simple). we had view directly over the tracks and the city, but did not hear the noise from the tracks. The breakfast was very simple, but i've enjoyed the warm porridge (though the coffee was disgusting.....- don't try it, better pay and order the regular one). During breakfast was really surprised by atmosphere with the fireplace, table to play chess and very stylish wooden lamps. The overall very good impression on the stay.

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.

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.
