This hostel is extremely pleasant. While it offers the same services and amenities as other youth hostels in Iceland (nice dorms, but also private rooms, full equipped kitchen, etc.), I was impressed and moved by the staff's helpfulness and friendliness. Since a dorm bed was only available for one night, I got a private room for the second night -... More

Rooms scattered all,over town. Beach unit nice but no view. Huge room. Far more than just a hostel. Great location. Great birding at the point. Staff very nice and helpful. We had a double room with full kitchen.

Average accomodation, nothing special. It includes everything what you need for preparing your own dinner and sleeping. Bathroom and kitchen was clean. Walls were thin but people were not loud. You need your own sleeping bags for sleeping.

This is a nice budget option when in the west of Iceland. The rooms are clean and comfortable, as are the shared bathrooms and the kitchen. However, the breakfast could be better and some of the other people who were staying in the other house said there weren't enough bathrooms for the amount of people staying there.

If you are visiting Grundarfjordur in the winter, as we did, you could not find a better place if you are looking for comfort, convenience, cleanliness and good value. The rooms are warm, the beds are comfortable, the bathroom is clean and the shower is great, there is plenty of storage space in the fridges, good clean cooking facilities all... More

- hostel divided between several buildings, it gives the hostel(s) nice, homely atmosphere, because there are fewer people per house - parking may be an issue, need to find a spot across the street - the second building very new, cheap ikea-type furniture, plastic flowers and very few dishes in the kitchen - seasonal staff, from april-september, but very friendly...

The weather wasn't very promising! Between that and being tired. My friend and I stayed inside most of the day. We explored around town for a little when the rain was slow. The hostel was in great upkeep, nice bathrooms, kitchen, common area. The rooms where great too! lots of storage space! It looked like there was a lot to... More

Pro: clean rooms, private bathroom and very well equipped sharing kitchen, excellent views on Kirkjufell mountain, convenient location for the tour of Snæfellsnes peninsula, quiet rooms next to the sea Con: It's a little hard to find despite instructions from the owner
