This hostel looks a bit old from the outside, but is modern, spacious and clean at the inside. It took some effort before the helpful lady of the hostel appeared at the hostel, but this is not really a problem when you made a reservation: you can sit inside while you're waiting and in the meantime use the wifi. And... More

KEX in Reykjavík might be livelier for the international backpacking crowd, but this hostel is very nice. Well kept, very friendly staff, optional breakfast, quick laundry/drying service, small dorms with comfortable beds - what more can you ask for!

Very well managed, well furnished hostel in sheltered fjord. Large spacious bedroom with a comfortable bed. Set on the harbour and conveniently situated close to a cafe which served a variety of basic but well cooked evening meals if you prefer not to cook you own. Breakfast was more than adequate, but not as good as the others we had... More

When I hear the word hostel I imagine rooms packed full of rowdy students and backpacks, the aroma of weed and grubby bathrooms. It might have been the time of our visit (late August) or the fact that Bildudalur is a remote village in the north-western fjords but the place was almost empty, very clean, with comfortable beds and right...

We spent one night in this hostel in a shared but spacious room. The location (right next to the harbor) is quite nice and there is a small but lovely restaurant close by where we had excellent burgers. The hostel itself is quite simple but it's a nice place to stop for a night before exploring the rest of the... More

Good clean hostel, helpful staff, beautiful town and as it turned out, good vantage point for seeing the northern lights, which is a truly unforgettable experience. Not much choice for accommodation in this part of Iceland but my expectations were exceeded.

Any lodging in this part of Iceland is good lodging. In this case, the room was clean, there were sufficient bathrooms, etc. What was missing was the warmth that often comes with arriving at new accommodations. Instead of helpfulness, we got coldness. We would stay again, but just wouldn't expect anything from the staff other than the basics.

We spent one night at This lovely 2 story hostel. Our private room was located upstairs, blankets again provided and you provide your own sheets and towels as was the case with all the HI hostels we/I visited in Iceland. The room itself was quite small and basic, but clean and comfortable enough. There are several washrooms with toilets/ sinks... More

Welcoming staff with ample facilities. Room was clean and comfortable. Perfect location to explore this portion of this West Fjords. Outdoor geothermal pool by the sea is just 30 minutes away. Many scenic road trips await in this area.
