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.

Excellent in almost every way. The temperature was too hot in my opinion.

Youth Hostel are really clean in Iceland, but this was the cleanest and the most confortble one that we experienced. Eyrarbakki is not the best spot, but this was the perfect stop for our last night before taking an early flight (and experiencing the blue lagoon)
