This peaceful property offers good-value accommodation with free Wi-Fi and breakfast. It has both private rooms with bathroom and dorms with shared bathrooms, all of which have TV, bed linen and towels. It features a TV lounge with a fireplace, guest kitchen and a barbecue in the garden.

The area invites you to go swimming, play tennis or sand volleyball. Gjøvik is also a perfect place to go for a hiking trip. Close to the hostel you will also find the Olympic Mountain Hall and other attractions such as Gjøvik Glassverk, Gjøvik Zoo and an old chocolate factory. In the winter there are cross country trails and alpine slopes just outside the door. In the summer you can take a boat trip with Skibladner - the world´s oldest paddle steamer.

Room clean and comfortable bed. heard from other residents that they would have liked a tooth glass in bathroom even though a hostel is not an hotel For catering for an international clientelle there ought to be a better choice av teas eg. Breakfast tea (black tea ) food was well prepared A good venue for meetings/conferences
