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.
What travellers think
Wonderful, friendly lady running the hostel. She was so welcoming and ready to help. The hostel was in the center of town so everything was within walking distance. We loved the view and the upstairs, comfortable lounge.
