Vestmannaeyjar Hostel

Hostel Vestmannaeyjar

Hostelling International

Welcome to our hostel

This Icelandic hostel is located in the town's centre on the alluring Heimaey Island, one of Westman Islands. The islanders have their own traditional culture, like bird hunting, egg collecting and cliff rappelling. In January 1973 an eruption began in Heimaey and lasted until early July. The remains of this event are among the island´s most fascinating historical locales. Now the locals are saving the remains of the eruption and make them more accessible; including digging up 7-10 houses that had disappeared under the ashes.

The Vestmannaeyjar hostel is a clean and friendly place to stay with well-equipped self-catering kitchen, laundry facilities, common room, bar and Internet access.

There are many activities in Heimaey: sailing around the island, bird watching, golf, hiking, horseback riding, museums, swimming, whale watching etc. This Icelandic hostel is a perfect place to enjoy the beauty of nature.

What a friendly, welcoming place! Owners of the attached hotel could not have been more helpful. Undergoing some upgrading when we visited and will be even better in the near future when showers etc are finished. Kitchen and bedrooms are high standard. In heart of Heimaey and easy walking distance of Eldfell, Helgafell and stunning coastal scenery.
