Nestled in the mountainous landscape of the Eastfjords, Seyðisfjorður is a true gem of a town with colourful little houses and a vibrant arts community. In the summer the town is alive with culture events, and when the Norrona ferry docks every week it is transformed into the smallest metropolis in the world. Seyðisfjorður HI Hostel offers accommodation in two different but equally charming historic houses; Hafaldan Harbour & Hafaldan Old Hospital. Hafaldan Harbour is nestled on the north side of the Seyðisfjorður fjord with amazing view from the dining area. Rooms are small & cozy. Ideal for those who seek basic & budget accommodation in Seydisfjordur. Hafaldan Old Hospital is located in the towns centre. The building has been under constant renovation for the last years and is without a doubt one of Icelands most charming hostels with beautiful interior design. The newest pride is the little basements "SPA" where guests can enjoy a Sauna & relax after a busy day of sightseeing.

Nice building with great rooms. Big kitchen with all necessities available. Helpful staff. All located in a beautiful, small town. We stayed one night, could have been more. Only downside: smelly bathroom.

I had already been with a group in this structure in 2017 and also this second time I confirm that it was one of the best accommodations of the whole trip. Spacious, comfortable and clean rooms, sauna, possibility to do laundry, one of the most comfortable and equipped kitchens. I would certainly look for a place at the Hafaldan-Old Hospital again, if I will come back again in Iceland

Hafaldan offered us a delightful experience. Seydisfjordur is breathtaking and the common areas of this hostel, covered in windows, allow you to take in all its beauty. The living room has all kinds of lovingly chosen decor details as well as plenty of table games. The private rooms are simple but have all you need, including a queen size bed. I would definitely stay here again.

Had a really warm welcome there and service was just excellent. Nice Hostel with modern kitchen and a really cool wellness-area in the basement. I liked the green thinking and the no shoes indoor rule. :D
