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 perfect - we are a family of 4 and had a large room with our own bathroom. Everything was spotless and the kitchen had everything we needed. Plenty of room in the dining room and lovely views of the lake.

La mujer del local super amable, siempre sonriendo. Las instalaciones muy limpias y muy adecuadas. Me gustó mucho que hubieran varias cocinas, de este modo era como si cada cliente tubiera su propia cocina (mucha comodidad para poder cocinar tranquilamente)

Ottima accoglienza, la camera da 4 era molto spaziosa, forse però fin troppo calda. Ottimi i bagni in tutta la struttura e geniale l'idea di creare una doppia cucina in modo che ognuno possa avere il suo spazio. Le ragazze alla reception sono state molto gentili e disponibili. Assolutamente silenzioso di notte, lo raccomando.
