Iceland is an amazing country. We decided to get out of the city and stay on the south coast. About an hour from the airport is the small town of Eyrarbakki. The apartment we stayed in was in the same building as the hostel but totally separate. The sign for the apartment told us to check in at the restaurant... More

if you decide to spend the nigth in this hostel, you'll find all the stuff described on its website: a fully-equipped kitchen, linen , reading light and outlet for charging. A really surprise is the several and huge showers in the shared bathroom.

The Xmas atmosphere in the village was absolutely enchanting. But back to Bakki hostels and appartments - difficult to decide where to start, so great it... More

Jessi made us feel extremely welcome. She was very friendly and had many suggestions and stories to tell. The flat was amazing also for 4 people, warm, comfortable and we slept very well. It is located very closed to the beach and we have seen from there the magic northern lights. Jessi also provided us a delicious breakfast (fresh bread... More

My friend and I stayed here for 5 nights, and loved the apartment! It's right off a beautiful black sand beach and walking path, conveniently next to a little market where we could get groceries and only a few blocks away from the Rauda Husid, where we had the best meals our entire time in Iceland! The apartment was nice... More

What we got was about half a house with a private access and 2 fully furnished apartments with kitchens,... More
