Berunes Hostel

Hostel Berunes

Hostelling International

Welcome to our hostel

Berunes hostel is an old farmhouse, built at the beginning of last century, ideally situated at an amazing seafront location under eastern mountains. There are also 3 self-catering cottages, each of them can take up to 6 people and more than 5 single/double/family rooms all with shared facilities in a newer building.

The Berunes hostel is well located for those who are travelling between Skaftafell National Park and the Myvatn area. We have acquired an international library of books given to us by our guests over the past 30 years. Guests can treat themselves to the renowned pancake breakfast in the morning and local cuisine at the Gestastofan Berunes family restaurant (open June-August).

The East Fjord Mountains, valleys and coastline are excellent for hiking. There is a path leading up between the peaks above the hostel and down into a valley.

Fast volle Punktzahl. Ich habe bei Service einen Punkt abgezogen, da uns leider nicht gesagt wurde, dass beim Kochen gelüftet werden muss, da sonst der Feueralarm losgeht, und uns wurde nicht mitgeteilt, dass wir den einzigen Schlüssel für das Zimmer nicht mitnehmen dürfen, da noch zwei andere Gäste kommen. Als das Gas leer war, wäre auch eine Info günstig gewesen, dass es noch eine Küche gibt. Ich wünsche mir ein bisschen mehr Information. Ansonsten tolles Hostel.

+ fantastischer Gastgeber (Olafur), + sympathische Anlage - leider sehr abgelegen - auch für eine Gemeinschaftsunterkunft stark beengte Atmosphäre - wie überall in Island üblich überteuerte Übernachtungspreise

Superbe hébergement.au charme rustique . Le + , c'est la possibilité de prendre une bière ou un jus de fruit au petit bar. Le buffet du soir végétarien était top.
