The rooms are very clean and comfortable. The staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. The dining room is spacious and has a great view of a large lake. They serve only a continental-style buffet breakfast that is worth the 1,500K (approx $12.00) considering the convenience, atmosphere and quality of the food. The room also is available to relax or socialize... More

The location of this hostel is great especially for those exploring the golden circle. We had a nice view of the lake from our room. The rooms here were very clean! We had two single beds and an ensuite bathroom which was very nice to have. I will likely stay here during our next trip to Iceland.

This hostel was a great location - we were lucky to find a night here when our other accommodation didn't have room for a second night. We had a private bathroom and shower, but were downstairs and had to walk through the laundry and construction area to make it to our space from upstairs. Room was large and parking was... More

I traveled with 2 friends and they gave us a private room downstairs, so for a hostel this was a very nice accommodation. There was some construction in the building but our room was in great shape. The breakfast was nice, the view from the breakfast room is awesome, and the staff was very friendly. We had no problems. It... More

I stayed here with my mum in July 2016, in a twin room with private bathroom. The room is big enough for us, the beds are comfortable with good blankets and pillows, towels were provided as well. Great shower :) Our room was at the rear side of the hostel, which has awesome views over the lake and mountains! Lots... More

We stayed in a private room here. Price was more then reasonable, and location is great being only 30 minutes from the Golden Circle. We had a bathroom and shower in our room, and the view was overlooking the lake. It was gorgeous. Only downside is the amount of construction going on, but once that is complete, it will be... More

Laugarvatn was undergoing construction while we were visiting, but they were more than accommodating! The rooms were pristine, the beds pretty comfortable and the bathrooms extremely clean with great showers. We had a private room with a private shower/bathroom, and it was wonderful! The kitchen has plenty of room for multiple groups to make food, with a varying assortment of... More

We stayed for one night in a dorm room (4 beds). It was a good hostel experience. The kitchen was small, with space for one group at a time. One stove. Good supply of cookware and cutlery. The dining area was great, with several large tables and some couches. The view of the lake was excellent. Wifi was fine. Staff... More

I had an Excellent stay. I Spent 3 days, which for this area could be longer. Great location to reach the Thingillver national Park along with Geysir and Gullfoss. There is much to see and do in this area and as noted, this location puts you near to all of it without driving all the way back to Reykjavik. Super... More
