Welcome to our hostel

If you came to Iceland to get away from it all and immerse yourself in nature and authetic Icelandic culture, the quaint coastal town of Eyrarbakki is an ideal place to spend a few days or longer.

Enjoy horseback riding on the beach, kayaking in the lagoons, or exploring a lava-tube cave. See a traditional rowing ship at the Maritime Museum or journey through time at the Árnessýsla Heritage Museum, located in a beautifully-preserved wooden house from 1765.

Treat yourself to some of the best seafood in Iceland at Rauða Húsið restaurant or simply stroll down the seaside path and watch the seabirds. Many of Iceland’s most famous attractions are less than an hour away and the friendly staff at Bakki Hostel & Apartments are happy to help you make the most of your visit.

Probably the most recently furbished hostel I've stayed in Iceland. Built in 2015, all the furniture and the interior design is very modern and in top shape. Additionally, it really felt like (my own) home. The location is a bit outside everything: there's nothing in Eyrarbakki, but Selfoss is nearby, as are many nature sights. For me, it was just an overnight stop on my way back to Reykjavik, with bonus points for being very near Kerið and Thrihnukagigur that I was visiting in the morning. Would definitely recommend.
