This place is for most guests a hostel. But they do have a couple of very descent hotel rooms. They offer good value for money, newly refurbished with a nice bathroom and all amenities you can expect. Well worth the higher price!

We stayed here after a couple of days walking on Hardangervidda. They had a big room for drying our wet clothes and tent. Excellent for checking out Rjukan and located by the river just across the monumental and beautiful Såheim factory. Wifi in the reception area and a basic breakfast.

Just a hostel but I expected a little bit more standard especially in the showers and toilets. Disgusting! + for TV-room and room for social activities - for toilets and showers +/- breakfast was ok, but not more

Don't expect hotel standards here - but seen as a hostel it's great. Simple furnishings, and not all rooms are en suite, but the beds I've tried here are comfortable, the staff is friendly and helpful, it's clean and there is a good, optional hostel-type breakfast.
