Skógar Hostel

Hostel Skógar

Hostelling International

Welcome to our hostel

Hostel Skógar is situated in an old school, close to Skógafoss, one of the best known waterfalls in Iceland. Skógar is a popular place surrounded by great and varied nature - think glaciers, mountains, black beaches, green acres, forested areas, waterfalls and good hiking routes.

At the hostel you will find a common room to meet other travellers in, a TV room to chill out and watch a movie, a garden so you can sit outside when the weather’s good and a self-catering kitchen to cook your meals in – alternatively Anna’s Café nearby is the most favoured restaurant.

Skógar Hostel is a great stop over for those who are hiking over Fimmvörðuháls, which is one of the most popular routes in the country. The nearby Skógar Museum is also one of the most frequently visited of its kind in Iceland.

we stayed in a few HI hostels and of them this was by far the worst. The shower were ok, however they were at the opposite end of the building from the bedrooms through the kitchen and laundry so not overly great. The bedroom however was very gross. It smelled, the sheets were old and gross, the bed was old and rickety walls were dirty and had holes where they had changed light fittings and not repaired the wall. it was pretty unwelcoming and unhomely.

Très bon emplacement à côté des chutes. Bon restaurent. Seul petit bémol : les portes qui claquent le soir.

El albergue se encuentra a los pies de una de las cataratas mas famosas de Islandia. Las instalaciones son muy correctas. El mayor "pero" es que está un poco obsoleto

die lage am wasserfall ist wirklich umwerfend, das personal nett und hilfsbereit. etwas schade war, dass in der küche keine basics (salz) zu finden waren. das machte die planung etwas mühsam.
