Broddanes Hostel

Hostel Broddanes

Welcome to our hostel

Hostel Broddanes is about 235km away from Reykjavík. The hostel is housed in what used to be a school. This spacious and welcoming hostel is ideal for those wishing to stay in a peaceful location surrounded by stunning landscapes.

Guests have access to a fully equipped kitchen, a dining room and sitting room where they can watch TV, read the papers or simply enjoy the view. Guests should keep in mind that the closest convenience store is 35km away.

Broddanes is a bird-watchers paradise. Puffins, eider ducks, black guillemots, ringed plovers, skuas, fulmars and many more are common in the area while seals hang about on the coastline. The terrain is equally diverse with its peninsulas, creeks, islets and skerries. Broddanes is 35km south of Hólmavík which has a convenience store, swimming pool and a golf course. Hólmavík is also the home of the Museum of Icelandic Sorcery & Witchcraft.

Bonjour, j' ai aimé les grandes fenêtres sur la nature.mieux au mois de juin avec les oiseaux surement. accueil correct. .un effort à faire sur le confort des chambres (mouches,poussières) et le chauffage en arrivant était éteint et fenêtre ouverte..Et les Equipements de la salle de bain assez rudimentaire ( surtout la douche), pourraient être rénovés. endroit est excentré, il pourrait y avoir un minimum de dépannage dans le frigo ou un petit déjeuner proposé.

We loved the hostel, everything is there. The only thing that is missing, is a good hiking trail from the hostel. We arrived around 14.00h. and there is not much to do in the surroundings for hiking. The hostel it self has a lot to offer (internet, pool table, games, tv, bookself etc). This is a perfect hostel just for a stop over.

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.
