Welcome to our hostel

Akranes is a family friendly town known for it's sport and fishing heritage. While staying with us you can visit our lighthouse and enjoy the unique view from the top, take a hike up Akrafjall mountain, go swimming in the sea with our local sea bathing club or rent a bike and take a closer look at our town and our way of life. The tallest waterfall in Iceland, Glymur, in Hvalfjordur and the saga rich area of Borgarfjordur is within 30 minutes' drive from Akranes. The Akranes Hostel is situated in an old and respectable house which used to be the town’s pharmacy. We have renovated most of the interior and we take pride in offering good service and a clean environment. Welcome to Akranes - a stay and a day to remember.
