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.

Zimmertür abschließen war ein Problem. Mussten Hilfe holen, da Tür zugefallen und Schlüssel im Raum war.
