    It's not even cheap -

    If you have to spend a night in Gjøvik this is the cheapest alternative if you get a room with a shared bathroom for around 100 USD. If it's more expensive I would seriously avoid this place if possible. It's old, service is slow, the rooms are freezing cold and so badly lit that you can't even read in your room. It's far away from everything and so for the prize it's bad. But Norway is expensive.

    5/5 Excellent

    comfortable stay with breakfast

    Nice clean rooms a few minutes from city center. Staff was accommodating and helpful in planning the rest of our trip. Thank you!

    4/5 Good

    Gjovik - nice way to start you visit to Norway

    Stayed 1 night in the cabins (Hytte) - nice accomodations, quiet semi residential surroundings. - terrific breakfast. Fairly priced by Norwegian standards. Hardly abel to be called a hostel.

    Pros: quiet surroundings

    Cons: none

    5/5 Excellent
