Located in Laugarvatn, a village with 300 inhabitants, Hostel Laugarvatn is midway between Þingvellir, Gullfoss and Geysir, 100km from Reykjavík.

The hostel is located in three houses, all with a well equipped kitchen and living room with TV. Two of the houses have hot tubs so you can relax after a day’s exploring, and the third is next to an outdoor swimming pool. In the village you will also find a post office, grocery store and a restaurant.

At Hostel Laugarvatn guests can hire boats or sailboards to use at Lake Laugarvatn and the area is great for hiking. Tours to Landmannalaugar and the Highlands can be arranged in the 13-seater Econoliner van, and the nearby Fontana Geothermal Baths is great place to visit to go and get pampered.

Trop peu de douches et WC pour un grand nombre de chambres. Mais travaux en cours pour améliorer cette situation

Auberge assez sympathique, mais des sanitaires vieillots, une cuisine bien petite et un personnel qui n'est pas toujours joignable.
