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.

The hostel itself was clean and spacious. Other than that, it was a VERY poor experience. The front desk associates were rude, did not assist us at all, and were giving us the wrong information. We had to go back to speak to them four separate times to get a clear answer. There is no signage about prices of coffee or hot water. I helped myself thinking it was complimentary and was snapped at, but she wouldn't let me pay for it. It was not a great experience and I will not recommend it to anyone.

The staff wasn't nice, but we just take and give back the keys, so it was not so important!
