In our way to akureyri. Clean, cool, friendly and helpful guy in the reception, fast wifi, coffee and tea free facilities and kitchen, living room and dining room. Good price for iceland althought there is nothing to see in borgarnes really. Recommended

I stayed here in a 4-bed dorm during a solo Winter drive around Iceland. I was in a room with two others and I slept well. There are sufficient facilities but in comparison to other Icelandic hostels it was just OK - a place to get some sleep and move on. Nice staff!

Borgarnes Hostel is definitely among the top tier hostels in terms of comfort and amenities. It is not the party hostel, it is not the nicest hostel but to their defense, it is also not the city where you go backpacking for these things! But it for sure is one of the best hostels in terms of locations: close to... More

Stayed here for one night without a reservation. The staff was friendly upon arrival and despite being more or less fully booked, they managed to sort us out and get us a bed each. Good kitchen facilities and common areas.

The first impression we had if this hostel was "it is well situated and it seems nice"...until we talk to the receptionist. Welcome more than icy (I mean we visited the Vatnajökull glacier and it was warmer than this guy), he gave us a form to fill (without looking at us) and showed us our room but that's it, no... More

Am so thanksful to the hostees of this hostel. Got lost in this town and they explained all surroundings with remarkable places like the cave of "Viðgelmir" in Fljotstunga, and "Barnafossar" what a beutiful places and nature? Am sure coming here again. If like camping go to "Fossatun" with all their troll camping :)

We felt flashed back to the 70-ies. Rooms could use a make-over... Although the room was VERY clean, the bed comfy and the hospitality very warm we don't think this is a cosy hotel. For a hostel it is very equipped (for example there are several guest kitchens). But they could make more out of this. It are such nice... More
