If I were to choose a hostel out of the seven I tried during my one-week stay in Iceland I'd definitely go for this one. The hostel is located in the village of Laugarvatn between a mountain and a lake, and not far from two of Iceland's main attractions -Gullfoss and Geysir. A few meters away there's a hot spring...

Was surprised how few people staying here despite the close proximity to several attractions. 4-bed dorm room was very spacious with single beds and a bathroom. Kitchen adequate and reasonably well supplied. A very comfortable stay and good value for money

The rooms are very clean and comfortable. The staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. The dining room is spacious and has a great view of a large lake. They serve only a continental-style buffet breakfast that is worth the 1,500K (approx $12.00) considering the convenience, atmosphere and quality of the food. The room also is available to relax or socialize...

The location of this hostel is great especially for those exploring the golden circle. We had a nice view of the lake from our room. The rooms here were very clean! We had two single beds and an ensuite bathroom which was very nice to have. I will likely stay here during our next trip to Iceland.

This hostel was a great location - we were lucky to find a night here when our other accommodation didn't have room for a second night. We had a private bathroom and shower, but were downstairs and had to walk through the laundry and construction area to make it to our space from upstairs. Room was large and parking was...
