We arrived quite late but the manager came back to let us in and was welcoming and helpful despite our being later than planned. The room was basic but warm and comfortable, the bathroom opposite was modern and clean with a good shower. The kitchen was well equipped and there was tea & coffee available. There was no pressure to... More

Rooms were comfortable, clean. Shared bathrooms were also very clean. The breakfast was delicious.The kitchen is spacious and well equipped, there is also a washing machine. The staff was very friendly. There was a computer in a lounge, but there was no internet connection available at the time of our stay.

Selfoss Hostel provides a nice room, and even though the bathroom/shower was shared, they are quite nice. It was a comfortable place to stay. If you're finishing the Golden Circle and the doing the Ring Road, it's also well-placed (and has free parking). My big disappointment with this hostel was that everything was very expensive, which is not what one... More

I went here with a group of middle school children. The rooms are comfortable and have darkening shades - always a plus when traveling in June! The rooms have sinks in them and there are plenty of spacious showers. We took our meals in the group dining room. There were waffles for breakfast every day along with meats, fruit and... More

This hostel offers something all hostels should! There is a table with the ingredients to make sandwiches, and baggies, to pack your own lunch. This is only available to those that have bought breakfast already. And the waffles at breakfast is a hit with young and old.

This was a great hostel. Reception was very nice, location is good, and it's a good price. Also, the beds were comfortable and there was a sink in the room. And there was a hot tub out back! The only problem is we thought it was called Selfoss Hostel, but all the signs said Hi Hostel so when we pulled... More

This is one of the nicest hostels I've found. The staff was fantastic and there is an outdoor hot tub behind the main building. I opted for a private room which was spacious and clean. The shared bathrooms are enormous and modern. Make sure to pop into the bakery directly across the street for coffee, skyr and a traditional Icelandic... More
