Husavik Hostel

Hostel Husavik

Hostelling International

Welcome to our hostel

Hostel Berg is located in Sandi, Aðaldal, surrounded by magnificent nature and a diverse bird life. The hostel is at the edge of Aðaldalshraun, a lava field that is particularly beautiful; it is also covered with low birch and bushes. For those wishing to explore extraordinary natural sites, Berg hostel is the ideal base.

The hostel has a well-equipped kitchen for preparing meals, a common room with TV, Internet access and a garden. The nearest town is Húsavík (20km) so travellers will need to either bring food with them or drive to Húsavík to get supplies.

There are not many parts of the country that have as many gems of nature as the north-east of Iceland. In Húsavík you can go whale watching in Skjálfandi bay, known for its vivid marine life, and nearby are the museum at Grenjaðarstaðir, Laxárvirkjun and Goðafoss waterfall.

Out of 14 nights in Iceland, I only put up one night at a HI hostel although I have taken the trouble to get a HI Membership before my trip. The reason is obvious. Berg Hostel, however, is kind enough to provide free linens without any request from its guests.
