Laugarvatn Hostel

Hostel Laugarvatn

Hostelling International

Welcome to our hostel

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.

It was great. But we had to be there before 11pm in order to do check in. Otherwise we couldn't have got it and had to sleep somewhere else. We tried to to see the northern lights and we were not be able to due to this.

We choose to stay at Laugarvatn whilst exploring the Golden Circle, the new building which we stayed in has more in common with a hotel than a hostel, it's definitely the only hostel I've stayed at that had fresh cut flowers in the room.
