What a nice Hostel!!! Beautiful location in the most amazing surroundings. We had a room for four people. Small but very good. Good beds and a very nice facilities. Great hiking trails nearby. I highly recommend this place. If you are travelling to Isafjordur....it only takes you 20 min to get to Korpudalur
Páll is an excellent host and really friendly. He told us all about the place, recommented a hiking and plenty of other activities in the towns nearby. We took a 3 hour hike the day after and it was magnificent, the mountains are something else! The house is well over 100 year old but the place was clean and well maintained. Really glad we stopped there.
We just stayed 1 night in the hostel - I wish we could have stayed more. We are a family of 4 (2 adults, 2 boys aged 10 and 11) and we stayed upstairs in a dorm room. Very small room, but we didn't need much! Everything was very clean. The location was amazing - really off the beaten track in a beautiful valley at the head of a fjord. Lots of hiking all around the area, and the owner of the hostel has created wonderful hiking maps. There are a lot of beautiful birds around the hostel as well. Guests can pay for breakfast. (We cooked our own, but were envious of other travelers who got the breakfast! It looked wonderful, with fresh trout, eggs, fresh bread, etc.) Be sure to talk to Stefan (or one of the other owners), they have so much good information about the area. I highly recommend this hostel!…
We stayed in the dorm, which was in a small modern but away from the main house. The hut had two rooms of two and a small attic area which slept 4. It had amazing cooking facilities and the view from every side was amazing. The family who has owned the property for many generations were so friendly and told us the history of the area. A good camping area too. The hut could have done with some curtains for the long summer days. And the road is a little rough coming in. *If coming from the tunnel/town direction, take the second signposted turn AFTER the bridge, the road is much much better.*
This cozy hostel, at the end of a gravel road, is truly isolated. It is a modest home, with small rooms and a shared dorm-style bathroom and fully stocked kitchen. Make sure to bring food because there is nothing available nearby. What makes this location special, in addition to the scenery, is that the host grew up in the home. He is kind and gentle, with stories about the area to share. The location attracts travelers who are interesting and independent. Wish we could have stayed longer.
