Description
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, More 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. Less
