Welcome to our hostel

Travellers to this high class hostel have described it as ‘having all the things you need and none of the things you don’t’. Located in Kongsberg, the hostel is within walking distance of both the old and new towns.

Surrounded by stunning scenery, this hostel is in the right place for groups looking to ski some of the best areas in Norway. It has recently been voted as having one of the best snowboard parks in the country.

This hostel does not have any dorms – all accommodation is in private rooms which have en suite bathrooms as well as a television. Yes it is a hostel!

The town of Kongsberg was founded in the 1600’s when silver was discovered in the surrounding hills. Groups can now visit the mines and the museum. There is also an impressive baroque church here which is one of the largest in Norway and can seat 2,400 people.

If you are a jazz fan, then make sure you visit Kongsberg in July when there is an annual festival which attracts musicians from all over the world including in the past, BB King. And of course if you are visiting in the summer, then make sure you discover the impressive waterfalls which are in the centre of the town which provide some stunning photo opportunities.

So whether you are a group looking to ski in the winter or hike in the summer, then our first-class hostel in Kongsberg will be waiting to welcome you.
