Welcome to our hostel

Gjøvik is one of the five towns bordering on Lake Mjøsa, Norway's biggest lake and our hostel here is in a great location near to the town’s open air swimming pool. The hostel has been recently renovated and there is a great café which has panoramic views of the recreation areas which are nearby (including tennis courts).

Gjøvik is a great place for hiking groups to explore with stunning mountains nearby offering amazing scenery. Close to the hostel you will also find the Olympic Mountain Hall where you can go skating both in the summer and winter. And for skiers in the winter there are cross country trails and alpine slopes just outside the door.

For those who are not so energetic you could take a boat trip with Skibladner – the world´s oldest paddle steamer or visit different art exhibitions. And if you are visiting with friends and family, then you simply cannot miss a visit to the Gjøvik Chocolate Factory. A newly opened attraction is the Science Centre which is an amazing interactive theme park where kids (of all ages) can do battle with a robot, behold the stars in the planetarium, scale a mountain climbing wall or create your own news site on the web.

So whatever your group reason for visiting Gjøvik, why not make an enquiry at our hostel in this fascinating town?
