Very nice hostel! Because it was quite we got an extra room for the same price. Staff was very friendly and an excellent view over the lake. And close to the highlights of the park.

Great hostel. Very clean. Great Kitchen and social areas. The only problem was that rooms facing the lake were very warm and when the windows were open the flies came in which wasn't a great combo. Other than that it was a great stay with a great location.

Bien placé pour rayonner dans le Cercle d'Or. Petit déj correct et possibilité de cuisiner sur place.

This is the best hostel I have stayed in. Jóna and Gunni are so genuine and friendly, and treat every guest like family. The kitchen facilities for those who want to cook are fully supplied with everything one would need to cook, along with little extras. It is kept spotless, and guests who use the kitchen are good at cleaning up. The private room I was in with en-suite was spotless, the bed was comfy, great lighting, lots of electrical outlets, the bathroom perfect for one or two. It is quiet and peaceful. There is always someone on site if you have questions or issues. The common areas are comfortable and clean. I did not have the breakfast, but the buffet looked delicious with a variety of fresh foods, fruits, vegetables, meats and cheese, breads, skyr, cereal, coffee, tea and juice. The hostel is in a great location right along the Golden Circle route. There is ample free parking on site. Next door is a small grocery store to get necessities. The hostel is right across the road from a lovely footpath along the mountainside, and just a very short walk away is the local outdoor heated swimming pool with hot pots, and the more touristy Fontana Spa. The views of Laugardal are amazing.
