Hostel Sæberg

Hostelling International

Welcome to our hostel

Halfway between Reykjavík and Akureyri you’ll find Sæberg Hostel. Set in a renovated farmhouse by the sea in Hrútafjörður, its ideal for those looking for a peaceful countryside setting to relax and recharge the batteries.

Here you’ll find dorm rooms for 2-7 people, cottages for 4-5 people with self-contained kitchen facilities and toilets, and there’s a camping ground nearby. There’s also a great outdoor hot tub which is heated with the geothermal water from the local hot spring.

Explore walking paths along the shore and up to the moor – great for enjoying the wild birdlife. Also within walking distance of the hostel guests can find the local historical museum with popular exhibitions that uncover the daily life of past generations in the area.

Excelente hostel para desconectar de la naturaleza. Primer sitio donde pudimos ver Auroras con el encanto especial de tener el lago delante, la minipiscina exterior muy limpia/caliente (octubre) y que este realmente aislado de cualquier foco de luz. Repetiria. Desaconsejaria lo que ellos llaman "cottage", no llega wiffi; la cocina de ese cottage es limitada y no cuenta con ducha, solo un lavabo. Ademas que hace mas frio que en la casa que es excelente.

我們住三人房的時候,房門沒有鑰匙可以鎖上,因為被上一個客人帶走了,主人也沒有備用鑰匙,我們晚上睡覺只好用行李箱擋著門。因為我們沒帶睡袋,每個人要多收1000 ISK,這點之前email確認信中都沒有提到。因為我們是非HI會員,每個人又要再多收700 ISK,但之前寄信去問HI服務信箱時,他說網頁上的價格已經是非會員的價錢了。原本很期待戶外的熱水池,但裡面蠻髒的,10月的時候又太冷,根本無法泡。總而言之,蠻後悔訂這間。

The location is ideal - only minutes from route 1, yet very peaceful. Hostel facilities are good, though I think a working oven would be an asset. Alla is the most wonderful warden, very hard-working, tirelessly running backwards and forwards to attend to our needs. The stairs down to the showers are very steep and narrow - great care needed, though it's possible to access them from outside. A curtain or blind at the toilet window on ground floor would provide some privacy.
