- 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

Its a decent & economical place to sat for couple of nights. Very conveniently located. It was clean. We had a room with private bath. Only downside was the mattress which was way to soft & not comfortable.

Their facilities are in three buildings...this review is of the building on the water that contains all/most of the rooms with private bathrooms. The building is either new or recently remodeled, as all appears new. It is highly functional, nice location (near the two restaurants, the waterfront, the supermarket, the gas station, etc), laid out well, and has a nice... More

This place was a simple find - easy to locate the office and then drove to the separate complex near the water and harbor. We weren’t in the hostel - our room had an en suite bathroom, linen & towels and was perfect for our needs. We checked in late, around 8:00pm and followed the check out procedures in the... More

We spent one night at this very clean hostel. There is a couple building, the main red one and across the street a green one, which is the one we are in. We are provided blankets but have to provide our own sheets, unless you pay extra. The private room is small, big enough room for our luggage, bed is... More

The dorm was clean and spacious (we were actually given a 5-bed for the price of a 4-bed, although the beds were really uncomfortable. The kitchen was nice but a little small considering the number of people it was catering. In the main house there must have been 20+ people plus whoever was staying in the other properties, but the... More
