I can't stand why such few and poor reviews about this wonderful place... This is the place I was looking for on my trip through Iceland: warm, cosy common areas and "rooms" (well, you basically use a mattres on the floor), amazing location and superb outdoor areas, just take a look at my pics! Ah, just book it by sending... More

Lovely hostel in a beautiful location. Quite a drive up a gravel road but worth it. We appeared to have arrive in the middle of renovations but it was very nice nonetheless. We arrived quite late but the friendly English owner greeted us and showed us the room. Mattresses were on the floor (not sure if this is the norm... More

I stayed here with 2 of my friends from Germany and Spain. This old, charming, authentic house has breathtaking view in a peaceful region of southern Iceland. This place is run by kind, energetic lady who is willing to help her guests in every way. She sat down with us and searched for our accommodation options for our next stays.... More

We've stayed at this very tiny hostel the first night in Iceland. that gives you immediately the idea of what Iceland is, the position is perfect, the view is great, there is so much silence and the road to get there is beautiful. there is a wide kitchen where you can to cook all your meals. in case you don't...

It's not as traditional an Icelandic house as I thought (there is grass on a tin roof over a wooden frame house), but it really is cozy and sweet. Twenty minutes after my arrival I was hiking up a nearby hill as recommended by Judi, communing with sheep and the mountains. Perched by a lovely wide valley facing two glaciers/volcanos,... More

This hostel is a fair trek off the beaten path but this adds to the appeal given its remoteness and proximity to Eyjafjallajokull. It came highly recommended in our guide book as an accommodation with good local character and it was. The hostel is small with only a single bathroom and the shower is outside if you choose to use... More

The "road" to the hostel is amazing, long and endless... This is what adventurers are looking for. Don't expect luxury, there is only a cosy dining room/library (+2000 books) in the shadow of the famous Eyjafjallajökull. All rooms are dormitory style without private facilities. The surrounding area is great for hiking, with hikes ranging from less than 2 hours upto... More

I remember seeing pictures of this hostel donkey's years ago... long before the internet... but I only just made it to the door. I've always been intrigued by its grass roof, remote location, and the high praise it's received over many decades from visiting backpackers. Of course, it's simple, with very basic facilities. These include one toilet and washroom, a... More
