Akranes Hostel

Hostel Akranes

Hostelling International

Welcome to our hostel

The Akranes Hostel is situated in an old and respectable house which used to be the town’s pharmacy. It is located downtown, close to the town square. Akranes has a diverse and friendly community, a thriving sports life, and is close to both the capital and the historically rich areas of West Iceland.

The rooms are comfortable and nicely furnished, with or without en-suite facilities. Guests have access to two fully-equipped kitchens and a spacious lounge.

In Akranes you will find a thriving sports and cultural life as well as interesting museums. The close proximity of the sea attracts many different kinds of birds. Mt Akrafjall can be accessed by car and offers interesting climbs, and Langisandur beach is close at hand. Magnificent views may be enjoyed over Faxaflói bay, the adjacent mountains and the surrounding areas. North of Akrafjall is Grunnafjordur.

Der Eincheck-Vorgang ist für meine Begriffe etwas umständlich. Ich hatte ein Problem mit dem Eingangsschlüssel zum Haus. Die Schnur des an ihr befestigten Haus- schlüssels klemmte die Öffnungsklappe. Hierbei sollte eventuell eine bessere Lösung gefunden werden!!!

Clean, friendly small hostel in an uninspiring town. A great place to get out of Reykjavik and explore further afield.
