The use of a kitchen was great plus and very clean. And the free breakfast the next morning was very good.|

|Very convenient location directly in the Railway station. There is even a supermarket and other shops available inside the station building. Lillehamer, like most hostels is Norway is rather large and more like a semi-self-catering hotel rather than a friendly village "youth hostel". Excellent hostel breakfast.|

Mye støy fra togene når vinduene er oppe under lufting, ingen air condition.
