The hostel is located at the centre of town, in an old house built as a hotel during the golden years of Siglufjörður. The surrounding nature is renowned for its beauty and is perfect for outdoor activities. Siglufjörður is a skier’s paradise, has outstanding slopes and surrounding valleys make great trails for cross-country skiing. The fjords and valleys in the area are popular for bird-watching and hiking.

The rooms are well equipped and comfortable and the common areas are great for relaxing or chatting to your fellow travellers.

Siglufjörður used to be the herring capital of Iceland and a thriving colourful town with a goldrush-like atmosphere. Signs of its past glory can still be seen in The Herring Era Museum, and breathe life into the remarkable past of the town which peaks during the Herring Adventure festival in August. The Folk Music festival is held by the Museum of Icelandic Folk Music in July.

Beim Telefonanruf von der geschlossenen Haustüre aus die Auskunft, das Haus sei "fully booked". Trotzdem ein Zimmer, da wir per Internet gebucht hatten. Und dann: ganz allein im grossen Haus - keine Gäste ausser uns, alle Zimmer leer. Strange.

Es una pena con el potencial que tiene el edificio que este tan descuidado y sucio
