The hostel was adequate and comfortable. It wasn't spectacular, but it wasn't bad. It was better than fair in all categories except location--it was a long walk to the nearest places to buy food. None of the badges listed are applicable to this hostel. I was required to pick at least one; however, this hostel is best for simply sleeping--not partying, socializing, volunteering, etc., etc.

En soit, l'auberge HI d'Höfn a tout ce dont on pourrait avoir besoin pour un court séjour. Ni plus ni moins. L'ambiance n'est pas très chaleureuse mais pas austère non plus. Globalement mon expérience n'a pas été mauvaise du tout mais pas mémorable non plus. Un vrai point noir pour moi : il y avait un bruit strident non identifié dans la salle de repas qui m'a embêtée.
