Great stay. So convenient and the staff were very helpful and friendly. Free wifi and basic but comfortable rooms. Good night sleep. Arrived on the train and it was so easy just to go straight into the hotel

A clean room and bathroom, very friendly and helpful staff, a simple but good breakfast.
The hostel is right beside the train station so you have to like trains.....
Sentral and very convenient - recommended!

Room Tip: You can have a room over the train station (with a view of the mountains) or a room looking out over...

We had a clean room with 2 bunk beds. The matresses were very soft. As we arrived a very hot day and the room was located to the south/west we´d liked to get some fresh air into but the window could hardly be opened but a few centimeters. The self catering kitchen was very convenient. The staff was very friendly and we enjoyed the manifold breakfast.

A new building; excellent 2 bed accommodation; clean and good bathroom facilities;free parking but some way away so beware no parking at the door. Very good breakfast and a decent kitchen/dining room on 2nd floor. Very pleasant and helpful receptionist. Nothing to fault the place but it was hot so we left the window open. Most trains were quiet except for one, some high speed express train that passed by shortly after midnight, (I believe); brief but extreme noise that shook our building.

Room Tip: Because of the lack of parking by the door, we packed 2 small rucksacks (rather than our larger bags...

This place was super cheap (for Norway) and you couldn't get a better location (right in the train station). It had a self catering kitchen and dining area but breakfast was included and the food in the station cafe was top quality and reasonable. I went just for the weekend to get one more ski in before the snow melts. Left work Friday night, flew to Oslo, got the last the train from Oslo airport direct to Lillehammer and was right there! No need to haul my ski bag far. Headed to the slopes the next morning after an inclusive breakfast skied Saturday and Sunday left Sunday for late flight back easy peasy and brilliant. The rooms are really good. Place to put your gear, warm cosy comfy and great shower and bathroom ensuite. Better than most 3 star hotels in the UK and really clean!

Room Tip: Even if you opt for dorm if there are less of you and they have rooms free they will put you in your...

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.
