Fun and courteous staff, nice vibe and beautiful place ! Everything is extremely clean and the amenities were top notch and simple. They are right next to Fontana spa and right in the middle of the golden circle. I would stay there again next time !

It was a very unique hostel as this used to be a school. There are many rooms and I was pleased to see that there were private showers as well. My friends and I (there were 4 of us) slept very well even though there's a lot of people there. You can order dinner and all you can eat breakfast there which is nice. It is also very clean. Thank you!

GREAT place to stay for seeing the Golden Circle highlights. A very unique setting- more like a hotel or hostel. An old school converted into guest rooms. Everyone leaves their shoes at the door. Beautifully decorated. There were a lot of people staying here but never had to wait for a bathroom. Pool table and TV lounge in the basement were empty and extra bathrooms on that floor. Great location- easy to see as soon as you arrive in town. People at the front desk were very helpful. Cafe/ bar on site - didn't eat here but it was very nice to order a beer and lounge on the sofas while reviewing the next day's itinerary. Only a half hour drive to Gullfoss & Geysir so we were able to get there early before the crowds!

Just perfect. We stayed there already the 2nd time and it was still totally charming. It is such a beautiful place.

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.
