    The fact that the tv system was inoperative was not a problem for us as we only needed a bed for the night, before leaving early for the airport. However the lack of guest computer was a more serious problem.

    The warm, quiet and cosy bijou room was as expected for the budget price. The location was the most important.The decor was up to par, as was the wifi. The location was a delight in the snow. May return in the summer, to get the full effect. Great frokost, although a bit limited. There were some delightful local items and superb hot chocolate ! The mountain water was excellent to drink.

    Bit of a trek to get to from the station, also didn't realise a good chunk of it was uphill so that didn't make things easier. Apart from that, no complaints really. Really good value for money.

    The staff were absolutely wonderful - very kind, polite, knowledgeable. I was greeted by what I assume are the owners of the hostel and their positive welcome set the mood for the rest of my stay. Bedroom and bathroom were squeaky clean and breakfast was nice.

    Very over priced, even by Norwegian standards, very run down (stained sofa, worn carpets etc), needs a complete refurb for the price they charge.

    The view is great if your room faces the lake. The free bike loan was perfect for exploring the town and a quick trip up the main hill over looking town.

    - bunk beds are too close each other, you can barely sit on the lower bed

    + nice quiet accomodation in a green area + separate entrance with parking place just outside the door + suitable for dogs, no fee + good cleaning + good kitchen endowment + everything is included in the price (breakfast, parking, towels and bed linen, dog fee) + good wifi signal and speed (20Mbps up/down)

    Bunk beds, not the best sleep No electrical outlets on bathroom, poorly lit -had a really hard time putting on make-up. A bit pricy 900,- for the standard maybe 750 would have been ok.
