Typically low budget place. But there is much Better in Iceland for this price. The furniture is old and the kitchen dirty. I also don't understand the interior and the situation of the kitchen / livingroom.

I enjoyed my stay at this hostel. We had a private double room which was clean and included bed linens. The room was small but big enough for our stuff and the bed was comfortable. Good value for the price. Since we were here in the off season it was very empty so I can't comment on noise.

I ended up at Borgarnes Hostel on a trip when I had planned to tent-camp every night. I was trying to set up my tent in the Borgarnes campground in the midst of a howling wind when the campground attendant mentioned he also ran the town's hostel. I was happy enough to avoid a night of shivering cold!

It was a fine hostel. Multiple living rooms and a nice dining hall. The rooms were small and the walls between them were thin. It might get pretty noisy if a lot of rowdy people were staying there. The bathroom was grim and very tiny.

Price was in line with everything in Iceland- it seemed overpriced due to the exchange rate woes. It was definitely more expensive than stealth-camping on a beach, which is in my opinion the best Icelandic lodging option :)

The breakfast was delicious and the owner was very pleasant. A decent spot to rest and relax overnight during lousy weather.

In the center of Borgarnes is a very nice hostel with friendly service. Very close from the hotel's thermal pool with many attractions. In the hostel there are two kitchens where you can prepare your own meals. There is plenty of cutlery and pots. You can also buy a breakfast prepared by the staff hostel. Bathrooms and showers are clean and functional. The rooms are modestly furnished, but clean. There is a lot of outlets for electricity, where you can recharge your phone or laptop. Wifi is available throughout the hostel and is free of charge. At the reception you can get help and information desk. The hostel's lobby room with a big TV. This is one of the best hostels in Iceland. It previously bought IYHF membership card to take advantage of 25% discount on accommodation. Beware of extra charges for: bed linen and towel.

I am looking for a kind greeting, comfortable bed, a good shower, and a quiet sleep. Oh, and all at a good price. We defintely found that here in Borgarnes. Another bonus is lots of happy travelers from around the world including several families. This is definitely a great spot to spend a night on the ring road. The rooms are simple but there are several configurations that should work for almost anyone.

Room Tip: You might wish to ask for a room on the backside of the building away from the main road. Although a car every 10 minutes is not much of a problem.
