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.

The owner/staff did not appear very enthusiastic to show the guests around the amenities. They are good people but they appeared to be too exhausted by the upkeep of the place. As my visit was in mid September, they may have been tired due to the busy winter.

I only have wonderful things to say about the Berunes Hostel and Olaf. The rooms were well kept and had warm, welcoming decor that gave you the feeling of being in ones own home. The kitchen had everything we needed, the reading room was beautiful and inviting, and my bed was warm and comfortable. By far, my favorite place I stayed while visiting Iceland.

El lugar donde está ubicado me parece genial, entre las montañas y el mar, con bonitas vistas a ambos lados. Ambiente muy tranquilo, con cocina y sala de estar común, zona de lectura y café/té. El personal muy agradable e interesante. El desayuno era bastante bueno comparado con otros aunque me parecio un poco caro. Tenían panqueques recien echos con sirope de arce, pan con semillas también casero y el resto igual que en todas partes.

Fabulous hostel! Go back in time and stay in an old farmhouse. Clean, well-kept, good kitchen, and nice owner. The hostel has access to excellent hiking, including right out the door.
