We went there after staying at a horrible guesthouse in Reykjavik. This felt so good, quite, friedly og safe. The breakfast was very easy, I missed some egg and bacon. That would have been great. The rooms, bathrooms where all good. Kitchen had all we needed. Missed having WIFI in the room.

I stayed in Hostel Selfoss for two nights and was sad to leave. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, particularly Arora the manager. What an absolute gem! She even got me a lift to kerið with her friend. I stayed in a mixed dorm, but there were only females in it both nights which was nice. It had a... More

We stayed two nights in twin room (i.e. we had our own room) and we were really satisfied. All the facilities are clean (kitchen, bathroom, room) and the staff was very helpful and nice! The only thing that we have problem with was slightly noisy plumbing, so if you are a light sleeper, bring ear plugs! But I still consider... More

We had a really nice stay at the Hostel Selfoss. After our first night there, we decided to stay another night before continuing on to Hofn. The facilities are pretty nice, beds, bathrooms, and kitchens were extremely clean and well taken care of. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook, aside from a toaster! The staff was friendly for... More

Got a great welcome at this homely hostel. One of the better equpped hostels I've stayed at and with the best hot showers which isn't the case in other hostels I've stayed at. Owner went out of her way to help, which as I'd had about two hours sleep in the last 48 was much appreciated. Lovely outside areas with... More

I hitchhiked to Selfoss from Reykjavik and was so comfortable the moment I walked in. The hot tub and showers are great! The staff is also very helpful, showed me how to take the bus and even tried to find a bike for me to use. I'm going to stop in again before my trip is over to see them... More

We visited here in February 2014 with a school party of 28. When we first arrived we were told to take off our shoes - common sense really to save muddy floors, especially in the Icelandic Winter. We were made to feel extremely welcome. On arrival in the rooms we found ours to be extremely spacious and immaculately clean. They... More

We spent 4 nights at the B&B Selfoss last week. Our school party of 45 really enjoyed their stay at the accommodation. The highlight had to be the delicious homecooked meals - mountains of freshly cooked waffles for breakfast, a huge selection of food for packed lunches and wonderful suppers of soups, local sausages, homemade burgers and pizzas. Rasa and... More

We had such a great time here! The staff was extremely friendly. The hostel was pleasantly decorated which gave us a very cosy feeling. Rooms were crispy clean and the bathrooms looked as one in a 5/star hotel! All the facilities were very good and clean. They took the time to show us around and gave us recommendations about the...

Large rooms if you have a double but the dorms are cramped, this well located (for the Golden Circle) hostel was a lovely place to stay. It had a mix of old and young travelers and the best common facilities of the four hostels of which we stayed (Akeyuri, Berunes and Skogar the others- avoid Skogar!)
