Vagnsstaðir Hostel

Hostel Vagnsstaðir

Hostelling International

Welcome to our hostel

Vagnsstaðir Hostel is in the Suðursveit area, about 50km west of Höfn and 28 km east of Jökulsárlón. The hostel is in an attractive area surrounded by beautiful mountains, with some great hiking paths that will entice you to explore the geology of this volcanic island.

Accommodation is offered in dorms and private rooms, and whilst there you can chill out in the common room, surf the Internet, make some dinner in the well-equipped kitchen or just chat to other travellers in the common room.

The shore, only 1,500m away, boasts extensive birdlife, seals on the beach and occasionally whales in the sea - a fascinating sight to see. From the hostel there are also jeep and snowmobile tours to Vatnajökull, Europe’s biggest glacier - you can choose tours from 3-4 hours and it’s possible to combine hiking and snowmobiles as well.

Superbe baie vitrée pour la salle à manger. Nous avons pu profiter du soleil le soir et le matin. Très bien située à proximité de la N1. Seul bémol, les douches ne sont pas extraordinaires. Mais nous recommandons vivement cette AJ.

Upstairs bathroom was smelly. Entranceway was dirty where we had to remove our shoes. Our room smelled bad. Location was great for our sightseeing.

The property is well-maintained with a great view. The staff was really friendly and provided suggestion to tours and hikes. There is only 1 toilet so morning can be really tough.
