Hostels in Drammen are good value, but like most places in Norway, a bit on the expensive side because of very high living standards. Expect to pay about 25 - 30 euros for a dorm bed, and somewhat more for double / twin rooms. Drammen hostel staff are a good source of information when planning your activities, so be sure to check with them about what's going on at the moment.
