Laugarvatn HI is my “home away from home” when I travel to Iceland in this area. Jóna, Gunnar and their staff are like family, and treat everyone with courtesy and friendliness. The hostel is sparkling clean, they have visible rules about respectful use of common areas (ie. kitchen rules), there is a large area for dining and groups to be together. It is great for large groups, small groups, families, couples and single travellers. The private rooms are comfortable and spacious. Beds are very comfortable and as are the linens. Excellent lighting and lots of plugs in the rooms. In-room heating means you can control the temperature you want. Lots of parking outside. Very handy on the Golden Circle route, but also to visit local sites such as the pool (cheaper than Fontana), restaurants (Lindinn is fantastic), local nature trails (Laugarvatnfjall, Laugarvatnskogar) and arts and craft shops. There is an N1 petrol station and a grocery store right beside the hostel. Highly recommended.

A nice hostel, very friendly staff. Unfortunately we skipped breakfast - I guess this is a really good one! ;-)
