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.

Der Wassergeruch war extrem fies. Kellertreppe zu steil. Haustür nicht abschließbar. Zu wenig Toiletten/Duschen. Hotspot super. Gemütliche Küche.

This hostel turned out to be my favorite place to stay while visiting Iceland. I loved how remote it was, I loved the beautiful location and the place itself was fantastic. I will definitely want to stay there again if and when I come back.

It´s difficult to find dog friendly accommodation in Iceland so my husband & I and our 2 huskies were glad to find dogs were welcome here, only in the cottages though We stayed in the cottage with 5 bunks, kitchen facilities & private toilet. It was well stocked with kitchen stuff, pots, pans, cutlery, hot plate, microwave and a small fridge. Showers can be had at the main house. Bed linen is included, towels are extra. Lovely location right beside the sea, we will defiantly be coming back again.

Nuestra estancia en Sæberg Hostel fue muy buena, la señora que nos atendió fue absolutamente encantadora en todo momento, incluso nos buscó ayuda para arrancar el coche ya que se nos había quedado atrapado en la nieve.
