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 luggage storage.
Kongsberg is known as 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. 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-hole golf course just outside of town.

Budget meal tip
There is only express bus near the hostel which is not cost effective, so I had to take taxi. The staff were really helpful. Breakfast was very good (7 out of 10). But it is alittle bit expensive for a hostel. 93 Euro per night. But I am pleased with my stay.
