Loved our stay here. Cute and cozy and perfect location when visiting the Golden Circle. Highly recommend.

It's a pretty nice hostel. As a matter of fact, it is so nice that you might confuse it with a hotel - except that there's no daily service and that showers and toilets are shared. The building is very nice and ideally located, and the restaurant on site is pretty good as well. The only downside is their policy of 'no shoes inside', which is rather annoying (and everyone looks pretty ridiculous in socks).

A well designed and friendly hostel that feels more like a hotel just with shared bathrooms. Very clean. Hip furnishings that make the common rooms feel like a Wes Anderson film set. Great spot to stay!

Old school converted to hotel. Dormitory available in the basement. Shared kitchen, showers and toilets for all. Nice diner menu and good breakfast in the dining room.

Heradsskolinn Boutique Hostel at Laugarvatn. Located in the heart of the Golden Circle nature paradise there are so many things to see and do in the area. Hiking, horse riding, bathing in geothermal pools, glacier and volcano exploring, you name it! Then, of course, there is the Golden Circle consisting of Thingvellir National Park, Gullfoss (the spectacular waterfall) and last but not least Geysir, the spewing geothermal wonder.
