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.

They are currently doing renovations, so it would be wise to let visitors know this. Due to all the construction, it was rather dirty in places around the hostel and it was not very pretty to look at, but the rooms were clean and service was great!

Our stay was brief, however the staff were extremely kind. They knew we would return late in the night and gave us access to the hostel. The kitchen facilities were great. Very friendly atmosphere. It is a great base to launch a day into the Golden Circle
