What travellers think
One of the nicer Hostels in which we stayed in Iceland. Bucolic setting. Ask for the corner room in the attached building. Lots of room and good facilities.

This hostel is in the perfect and very peaceful location, and we did see many puffins flying around the nearby colony. We did enjoy the happy and environment around this hostel.
