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.

Auberge ok avec une grande cuisine mais il faisait très froid dans la chambre en sous-sol car le radiateur ne marchait pas. Très peu d'eau chaude dans la douche.

alto il prezzo per la struttura, e per la media degli altri ostelli prenotati durante il mio soggiorno in Islanda in Novembre, camere piccole, buono il confort. comodo il lavandino in camera, non trovato in nessuna altra struttura HI prenotata. cucina ampia adeguata.

Rapport qualité/prix assez mauvais. Chambres petites et vétustes avec une odeur désagréable. Par contre, bonne infrastructure de cuisine et agréable living en commun

der Ausblick hinter der JH ist grandios: Golfplatz, See, Gletscher ... Tipp: den Hügel am Ende der Straße hochgehen. Kleiner Ort inmitten tollster Landschaft.
