“Worst value for money you can get in Kristiansand!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 September 2012

Probably the worst value for money you can get in Kristiansand! Honestly, 100 US$ a night for a piled up rack of freight containers with self service DIY bed sheets and (1) towel, bunk beds, no reception, no wake-up calls, not even a plastic cup in the room to brush your teeth, cold water at the end of your shower, no snack dispenser (just a soda dispenser outside), etc. etc. In case you ever want your room done when staying more than 1 night be prepared to pay extra.
Oh, and BTW, when you leave, don't forget to drop your bed sheets and towel in the bin on your way out...
Honestly, I'm not picky and wasn't expecting anything special from a "budget hotel" but for crying out loud 100 US$ for "that" no [--] way!
You're better off spending an extra 100 US$ a night in one of the neighboring hotels which at least deserve to be called "Hotels" (not kidding, I visited a colleague in one of them and they feel like 5 Star hotels compared to that place. Actually I'd rather go camping.

First, when I saw it, I was shocked that it's a module-built hotel, looking a bit like those u see at construction sites ;) But it was very cosy and clean inside. Small room, perfect for 2. Friendly staff and VERY close to the center. Wifi worked fine.

Real Budget. Sober but effective. Close to city centre and ferry both within walking distance. Donot expect a 4 star hotel, you would be disapointed :

My husband and I stayed one night in this hotel as we were taking the ferry to Denmark the day after. Everything is self service, you check in, get your bedsheets and pillowcases from the reception, after you leave, you need to take all the bedsheets and pillowcases in the bins provided.
The hotel looks like it's made up of many shipping containers combined together into a makeshift hotel.
The room is cheap in Norway standard, clean toilet and room, internet is provided, TV is quite small, the beds are not very good, so they hurt my back a little, but considering the price, this is an OK hotel.

Room Tip: Get room towards car park away from highway.

We stayed two adults and one children 5 years old for three nights. The room was a little small, but clean and good for sleeping. It was in the middle of Kristiansand and we visited the Zoo which took about 10 minutes by car. Norway is very expensive country and this was cheapest we could find.

I thought we had booked a cheap motel but it was more like a hostel. the rooms are so tiny. They get very hot in the rooms too stifling hot to the point of uncomfortableness. There are no tv's and the rooms aren't cosy you have to walk to get to any restaurants there is nothing immediately nearby. It's situated between a gas station and the train station. I will not be back better to pay the extra bucks to stay somewhere decent. The only good thing is you are only a few blocks away from the downtown city.

Once you get over the fact that this is a prefabricated portacabin of a building, this is a really good budget option. There is a risk of noise, being near to the port, railway and a car park, but I wasn't disturbed by anything in my three night there. The staff were friendly and helpful. The rooms were basic but reasonably clean and comfortable and provided everything I needed. All in all if you don't want to spend much money, this is a safe and practical choice.
