Siglufjörður Hostel

Hostel Siglufjörður

Hostelling International

Welcome to our hostel

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.

The hostel is being refurbished at the moment, but the kitchen is still the same old one. Probably one of the worst we had on the trip. But the room was perfect, even with personnal toilets, which doesn't happen that often in hostels. Wi-fi works perfectly and Oli was very friendly !

Sehr schönes Hostel in beeindruckender Umgebung. Der Empfang war sehr freundlich und der junge Mitarbeiter sehr motiviert und herzlich. Das Haus ist komfortabel und liebevoll eingerichtet. Nach Abschluss der Bauarbeiten (welche uns nicht behinderten oder einschränkten) wird es sicher noch schöner. Die Gemeinschaftsküche braucht eine Auffrischung, einiges wirkt etwas mitgenommen.
