The location is a bit remote and this is the only hostel in the area. Bring all the supplies you need with you. The store at the gas station closes at 7. There is absolutely nothing else nearby. Perfect location if you are planning drive to Haifoss or Landmannalaugar.

This hostel was great! Very clean, and the staff was friendly. The only problem was it took us an hour of driving back and forth to find it, there weren't a lot of signs and the address listed took us some place else. We eventually just called and found the place.
