I greatly enjoyed my stay at this hostel. The host - a charming Icelandinc woman who is really full of energy - was very friendly and helpful. Since the hostel is absolutely central, I could walk around very easily - a very pretty path in the mountains (down the river) and the swimming-pool were within a few minutes of the... More

Had a private room in the Hafaldan building. Walls were very thin, but other reviews make this clear and there are signs everywhere making it clear, but still it is like there are not walls. The common area has AMAZINGLY views overlooking the fjord and was so cozy with the large table and furniture. Bedroom was simple but provided a... More

Bright, clean building in the heart of the town. Big kitchen, fancy bathrooms. Extremely friendly owner. She bumped my friend and I up to a private room for free. Great company. I would definitely stay here again.

Great hostel centrally located in Seydisfjordur. Stayed here two nights and found it was a short walk to any in business in town. Great kitchen with a big area to socialize in and meet other travellers. Very comfortable and affordable hostel in a picturesque town.

The hostel is located in an old hospital. The building might be old (~100 years I think) but the renovation is done perfectly. Perfect view of the surrounding area. The hosts are very friendly and offer a lot of comments on the exploration of the little town. The room is spacious and for one second we thought we are in... More

The youth hostel is situated in an old hospital an is wonderfully renovated. It seriously has one of the best kitchens I have seen so far and the staff was very helpful. Our room offered a great view of the mountain and the cosy common area just perfectly saved a very rainy day. Everything was clean and in the good... More

I stayed in the annex. The place is easy to find. turn right at the hotel aldan, go about two blocks and it's on the right. This was the best hostel I stayed in in Iceland. The town is super pretty, and the hostel carries that vibe. Rooms are cozy, and the staff is friendly. The Kitchen and eating area... More

What a surprise this town and hostel was. Converted from a 1900 hospital, the retro fittings are amazing, chic, spacious and comfortable. One of the best hostels I've stayed in over the last 17 years of backpacking over 54 countries. Friendly staff, Clean, comfortable, the best hostel kitchen i have ever seen! The town is also quirky, artsy, interesting, lots... More
