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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

I had organised a group of 12 photographers and we stayed here 1 night - fantastic place, rooms light and airy, very clean and a well provided kitchen. Breakfast was provided which was enjoyed by all. The lady in charge (Jona ??) was brilliant and so helpful and funny. Wish we had stayed here longer!

We only stayed one night - the hostel on the main road is having major building work done so we were accommodated down by the lake. The building has plenty of communal space and a large dining area. Separate toilet/shower facilities for men and women and a typical Nordic breakfast. The rooms were large for a hostel - we had...

This place is just adorable. It's like spending the weekend at grandma's. Staff was great and welcoming, and as they were empty they put me in a private room for the price of a dorm! The whole place was very clean, the kitchen was well equipped, the dinning room was big and nice. A great place to stay during your...
