Kongsberg Youth Hostel is a high class hostel in the town centre, yet in quiet surroundings.

All rooms are en suite, with TV and Wi-Fi. Facilities include a fitness room, internet, conference rooms, and baggage handling.

Kongsberg is the Silver and Skiing Town! It was built on silver mining from 1624, and is surrounded by snowy hills and mountains. There are many cultural monuments originating from its wealthy silver mining period. The Numedalslågen River, with its impressive waterfalls, flows through the town centre, and the surrounding countryside and is a joy to explore in the summer and winter. The town’s character reflects its mining culture and skiing history, which can also be experienced in the Silver Mines, the museums and the magnificent baroque church towering near the youth hostel. There is also an 18-holes golf course just outside of town.

The private rooms are nearly the same as hotel costs, but then they are also nearly hotel comfort and quite convenient for families.
