My husband and I stayed one night in the Grundarfjördur Apartments which are just minutes away from the main hostel. Check-in was smooth, the staff was friendly, the room was clean, the area is quiet, and the private bathroom was a nice touch. We had a wonderful view of the water and a a stunning show of the Northern Lights!!... More

Totally the best value for sleeping quarters in Iceland, the building itself looks like a warehouse which is kinda cool, take off your shoes as you walk in. We slept 5 in the room tons of elbow room as there were 4 bunk beds in the room. Room was nice and warm, full kitchen down the hall, our room had... More

Stayed for one night. Lovely room with a great view, was able to see the northern lights! Was wonderful to have a large shared kitchen and dining area, especially in the morning as I'm an early riser and my brother is not.

Stayed for a single night on a round trip, but felt right at home from the beginning. Friendly and welcoming hosts. Great open kitchen area with the rooms around. They even had a bathtub, where one could soak after a full day on the go. Certainly a plus in my book.

Not really a youth hostel. I think one building is a youth hostel and then they have rooms and apartments. Our building was down by the water, spacious, and a big communal kitchen with couches. Wifi worked best there, not great in the rooms.

We stayed one night in this hostel which is in fact few houses reconverted in hostel. It feels like staying in a real home, since we slept in a room located in the house accross the street, that doesn't have the reception desk. If you need to sleep near the Snaefellsjökull, It's a very good spot. Like every accomodation in... More

We spent 3 nights here, using the Hostel as a base for touring the area. We had an ensuite room in the building by the harbour (the hostel is in several buildings in the town), with use of a shared kitchen. The room was pleasant and clean with a good bathroom, and the kitchen was well equipped. The young woman... More

Booked here for 2 days, what an amazing location and great town by the sea. We arrived at reception, and were directed to another building where our room was down near the harbour. The building has amazing views! The room was clean and nicely decorated, with our own private bathroom. There is a huge kitchen area for guests to use... More
