We slept 5 in the room tons of elbow room as there were 4 bunk beds in the room. Room was nice and warm, full kitchen down the hall, our room had...

Stayed for one night. Lovely room with a great view, was able to see the northern lights! Was wonderful to have a large shared kitchen and dining area, especially in the morning as I'm an early riser and my brother is not.

Stayed for a single night on a round trip, but felt right at home from the beginning. Friendly and welcoming hosts. Great open kitchen area with the rooms around. They even had a bathtub, where one could soak after a full day on the go. Certainly a plus in my book.

Not really a youth hostel. I think one building is a youth hostel and then they have rooms and apartments. Our building was down by the water, spacious, and a big communal kitchen with couches. Wifi worked best there, not great in the rooms.

We stayed one night in this hostel which is in fact few houses reconverted in hostel. It feels like staying in a real home, since we slept in a room located in the house accross the street, that doesn't have the reception desk. If you need to sleep near the Snaefellsjökull, It's a very good spot. Like every accomodation in...

Positives: 1) Location - right in the heart of Grundarfjordur. 2) Free WiFi - fast connection. 3) Free parking on site. 4) Fully equipped kitchen to use for everyone. 5) Private bathroom. 6) Room window facing the Kirkjufell mountain. Negatives: 1) Room size - our double room was very small. It was almost impossible for two people to fit in...

We spent 3 nights here, using the Hostel as a base for touring the area. We had an ensuite room in the building by the harbour (the hostel is in several buildings in the town), with use of a shared kitchen. The room was pleasant and clean with a good bathroom, and the kitchen was well equipped. The young woman...

Booked here for 2 days, what an amazing location and great town by the sea. We arrived at reception, and were directed to another building where our room was down near the harbour. The building has amazing views! The room was clean and nicely decorated, with our own private bathroom. There is a huge kitchen area for guests to use...

We stayed here for two nights. Because we booked rooms so late we had to change rooms. First night was down at the harbour; excellent rooms, kitchen, view in colourful, clean, hotelstandard rooms. Night two was up in the main house (the red one where the reseption is), also very nice, but thinner matrasses and smaller kitchen. Friendly staff and...
