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.

La pire auberge d'Islande parmi les 8 que j'ai faite (-) Draps tachés et troués/ pas de place dans la chambre pour poser les affaires (dortoir) /4 porte manteaux pour 6 personnes rien pour accrocher serviette et les faire sécher / salle de repas non chauffée ! / salle de convivialité peu chauffée et très mal éclairée (obligée de venir avec ma lampe de poche pour lire !) / 2 WC et 3 minuscules douches avec eau chaude sans possibilité de rajouter de l'eau froide... (+) grande cuisine bien équipée

Glacial jeeps tour from hostel conveniemt and worth the money. More toilets for number of people. Understand they a r e building a new hostel. Staff helpful but a bit mechanical. Need to be less abrupt but must deal with so many people so understandable.

The location is great & the facilities are adequate however as is the case in a lot of hostels in Iceland there are no useable lockers, linen comes at an additional charge unless you bring your own bed bug riddled sleeping bag & there is no laundry. I would stay here again although I wish Icelands hostels would lift their standards to the modern dat hostel mark.
