Just out of town is the headland of Hólmanes, an ideal site for outdoor recreations, whether among the cliffs or at the shore and offers an abundant birdlife and peculiar rock formations.

This was the best place I stayed my entire trip. The front desk was extremely nice, she was like a home away from home mom. Very welcoming. The recycling and organization of everything in the hostel house was amazing and extremely helpful. The view was spectacular. I would come back just to stay here.

This place was by far the best place we stayed at during our 10 days in Iceland. Marlin was amazing, the rooms were spacious and very well kept. The view from the house was incredible! Not much to do in the actual town, but was excellent for a day of relaxing. Only stayed one night, so we didn't get to try out the sauna. Highly recommend this hostel to anyone doing the ring road!

Super nettes Team, eigene Sauna nur für uns alleine. Tolles Haus und schöne Aussicht auf den Fjord. Haben es geliebt!

This hostel was wonderful. The owner and her husband were incredibly accomodating. When we complained of having nowhere to eat authentic Icelandic food, she offered to cook for us; breakfast too. She was kind, listened to our stories and we loved listening to hers. The hostel was incredibly clean, and nothing like the typical hostel we're used to. It's incredibly cozy and homey, and is very reasonably priced.
