A cosy hostel outside any settlement. Really small, one little shower. Room was clean and kitchen stuff as well. The staff was very kind and helpful. Grab your supplies before - there is no shop nearby. :-)

das Hostel liegt mitten im Nichts, dadurch total ruhig und mit einer super schönen Aussicht; leider konnte man weder die Zimmer noch das Hostel abschließen, Island ist grundlegend ein sehr sicheres Land, trotzdessen war dies für mich ein bisschen gewöhnungsbedürftig; sehr nette Betreiberin
