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.

La ubicación es un poco apartada de las principales ciudades y atracciones de la isla pero a cambio estás en un lugar centrico desde el que partir a visitar los alrededores por un buen precio y calidad de servicio. El sitio es muy grande, la cocina muy amplia asi como los baños y duchas y habitaciones. Todo muy espacioso con zonas de relax, ordenador para hacer consultas, todo muy limpio y cuidado y lavandería.

Eyrarbakki ist natürlich nur ein Dorf an der Küste, aber in diesem Dorf ist das Hostle gut gelegen. Es ist hell und freundlich mit einer tollen Küche und Aufenthaltsbereich. Die Zimmer sind recht gross. Betten mit Bettwäsche und Handtüchern. Das Personal ist sehr freundlich. Praktisch sind die verschliessbaren Fächer unter den Hochbetten. Jedenfalls sehr zu empfehlen, wer von Selfoss noch etwa eine viertel Stunde weiterfahren möchte.
