Grundarfjordur Youth Hostel
Reviewed February 25, 2014

Stayed here with husband and 2 children. Stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment down by the bay.
Amazing views,amazing place.on arrival I entered the reception and dialled a number as instructed within 2 minutes we were seen to . The apartment was spotless and very warm. All the beds were freshly made and the shower room was spotless. I would highly recommend this place to stay.so much so that we will be returned (if it is not booked up) next year.

Room Tip: Ask for an apartment down by the bay.

We spent two nights staying in the new building by the sea. I will be the first to admit that I haven't stayed in many youth hostels so I can't really make comparisons, but I found the bed very comfortable, the manager helpful at check in, the shower good and hot and the view from the bedroom window exceptional! We didn't use the kitchen facilities (we ate both evenings at Hotel Framnes just across the road, which was good albeit fairly pricey) but they seemed to be perfectly adequate and clean.

This is a modern and pleasant hostel. Our room was clean and modern and although we didn't use them, the cooking facilities looked good. The bed was very comfortable and came with a pillow as we requested sleeping bag accommodation. This was a bonus! The staff member and reception was friendly and gave us advice with regards to climbing the mountain just outside town. Overall a very pleasant stay.

Stayed in the new building by the sea. Although located in what looks like the industrial part of town it has a great view of the mountains, the bay and the cute houses of the small town. The room is clean and with a privet bathroom. The kitchen and dinning area is big and comfortable. A nice guesthouse, the name "Youth Hostel" does not apply to the part we stayed in.

We stayed in a two bedroom apartment by the water. We were two couples, and although one of the rooms was furnished with bunk beds, my husband and I were fine with "reliving our childhood" and found the bunks quite comfortable and adequate. The apartment was very clean and spacious. The wifi worked reliably, and the kitchen was very well stocked. I only wish that they put dark out blinds on the windows, but it seems this was a problem everywhere we stayed in Iceland. Bring a blindfold! Otherwise, it was an excellent stay!

As with another reviewer we stayed in the apartments near the water and close to the mountain. Fab views from the breakfast area where Orca can be seen. We saw them from the boat on both trips out in to the fjord and also from land near the town. The Ikea furnishings are bright and cheerful, although perhaps not what I would chose personally it was comfortable, clean and a nice relaxed atmosphere. The apartment was well proportioned with a good wet room, comfortable seating and a useful kitchenette area. Would suit a small family with perhaps one or two children as there was a further room with bunk beds. Free wifi access was a bonus. Bring slippers if you like to wear shoes indoors (I don't so not bothered by this) as they require you to remove you shoes in the hall way. Rooms are well heated. Stunning views of the mountain and fjord right outside and on our first night the northern lights were fantastic.

Room Tip: Take slippers if you like to wear shoes indoors as shoes are to be left in corridor.

We stayed in the apartments that are some distance from the hostel. By the water, though a bit misrepresented as having sea and mountain views, the apartments are tucked into the industrial fishing area. None the less it was a perfectly functional and clean place to crash as we moved about the Snaefellesnes peninsula. A bit expensive, but options are limited.
