Meet a hostel: Lillehammer Hostel “The Train Station”

Guests could not have a better starting point for seeing all that Lillehammer has to offer, including shopping, attractions, restaurants, cafés and hiking. The cozy shopping street in Lillehammer is only 100m walking distance from the hostel.

Many of the guests and the locals enjoy the cafe Stasjonen in the reception area, which offers delicious cakes, lunches and coffee. Here you can read the paper, play some chess or simply relax by the fireplace. A perfect place to stop before or after traveling!
