Höfn Hostel

Hostel Höfn

Hostelling International

Welcome to our hostel

With the sea on three sides and Vatnajökull, the biggest glacier in Europe to the northwest, Höfn is a lovely fishing town with 1500 inhabitants. Hostel Höfn can be found in its centre, just 7km from the airport.

The hostel offers a range of dorms and private rooms, with a range of facilities to make your stay as comfortable and relaxing as possible. It includes a kitchen so you can practise your cookery skills, Internet access so you can check your emails and research your trip, and a common room so you can chill-out and chat to other travellers.

The Höfn hostel makes a great base for visiting the Jökulsárlón glacial lagoon, the Vatnajökull glacier or the Lónsöræfi wilderness area. The location also allows you to choose from a variety of activities including boat tours, glacier tours on jeeps or snow mobiles, and jeep and hiking tours.

We have limited reception hours and check-in is from 16:00 to 21:00. Please contact us in advance if you are planning to arrive outside reception hours. A late arrival fee of 1000 ISK is charged for those checking in after 22:00.

Extremely clean hostel. We camped four days prior to staying at this hostel and it was a wonderful place to rest. The woman who checked us in was friendly. There are no lockers in the room we stayed (not sure if they had lockers elsewhere). The kitchen and dining area were clean. Enjoyed our stay in this quiet, cute hostel!

Schönes sauberes Hostel in guter Lage. Doppelzimmer: zwei Einzelbetten ein Tisch und ein Waschbecken. Knapp 200€ für eine Nacht im Hostel halte ich dennoch für zu viel. Für den Preis könnte ruhig noch ein Frühstück dabei sein.

Hofn is a great town with nice restaurants with easy access to the glacier lagoons (assuming you have your own car). This hostel was very clean, modern and well-maintained. I got two good nights' sleep here. Thanks, Lena, for leaving my key for me for my late check-in.
