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 TV 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.

The electricity in the kitchen was out several times in the morning, so we couldn't make any tea and the lights were also not working. House is quite old and the room was shabby, but the price is extremely high for that.

Great hostel for stopping over on the East coast. We only stayed one night but found a warm, comfortable room with a lovely view. Well equipped kitchen but miles from anywhere else (which adds to the character) so bring your own food. Walls are pretty thin but everyone there was friendly and there was no late night noise. Not far from the beach and a great spot for seeing some northern lights ifor the weather is good as there is very little light pollution. Would happily stay again.
