There are not many choices of non-luxury accommodation in Seydisfjodur. Post hostel served our purpose well for a good night's sleep. It's a single floor of four or five rooms. The host was friendly and came over to arrange things when one called her using the inhouse phone. There was no breakfast but a well-equipped pantry was free for use... More

This hotel wasn't my favorite in Iceland, but I can't say I have any major complaints, either. It's not the most inviting or cheery place, but the rooms do have a nice view over the fjord. Rooms are basic and cost a bit less than the more expensive hotel on the other side of town. I slept well here and... More

Seydisfjordur turned out to be our favorite place in Iceland. And the Post Hostel was great! It was clean and had great views of Seydisfjordur. Right next to the fjord, where we saw Minke whales jumping one morning. Great value! Kitches was well stocked too.

We didn't actually stayed at the hostel but the apartment under the same owner. It was one of the top apartment we stayed in Iceland and we stayed in some pretty dam awesome apartments. The apartment was fairly close to the hostel itself and it rent out by the hostel's family(?) that lives just above (over?) it. The apartment was... More

Well located in the town and a nice place to stay. I only had an overnight stop here. The town itself isn't of great interest but the drive across from Egilsstadir is fabulous. Nobody was there when I arrived but a call on the inhouse phone got the owner there in a couple of minutes. My room had my name... More

No one was there when we arrived, but we called the number at the desk and the lady who answered was very kind. We had booked one room for four of us, and since it was a very quiet week, she told us we could have two rooms at no extra charge. That was a lovely surprise for each couple... More

Must admit that the building exterior & entrance does not look very enticing, but once carrying our luggage up the stairs were glad to see that there's a much nicer feel where the rooms are. The setting is probably the stand out feature of this place, near the water & with views of mountains and a waterfall from our room,... More

This was a small hostel with clean and simply furnished rooms. There is a well equipped kitchen for guests to use. Our room had a double bed and from one window a lovely outlook to a waterfall rushing down the mountainside. So nice we kept the curtains open all night! I would certainly recommend this place if you are on... More

When we arrived, it looked abandoned. We went inside, there was nobody there. They had instructions to pick up the phone and call some number, which we did, and we talked to a woman, who appeared about 10 minutes later to check us in. Not the most hospitable place in the world. The rooms were small, with very little common... More

We arrived there without having booked a room and were pleasantly surprised by the place and its amenities. Clean, newly renovated with a good location, it made our short stay in the region very enjoyable. Would recommend!
