Super location, clean, good food and friendly helpful staff. The only pity is that you have to share the bathroom and toilettes.

This was an excellent place for my friends and I. Wished we could have stayed longer. The room was exactly what we wanted - a shared bedroom where 6 of us could stay together. The public lounges were cozy and enjoyable. And the breakfast was delicious. Would definitely recommend!

We loved the stay!! My friends and I arrived to Iceland at 5 am and hoped to immediately start the Golden Circle. However, the jet lag quickly caught up to us and they were able to accomadate our needs of checking in a little earlier than 3:30. While we did not eat in the cafe, the smells were always delicious. The hosts gave us recommendations of things to do in the area (both walking and driving distance) with coupons to a few activities! We saw a glimpse of the Northern Lights and after driving a little further out we were able to see them clearly. It was an incredibly comforting atmosphere with all hosts and guests. Our only wish was to stay longer!

This hostel is in a really convenient location for enjoying the Golden Circle. The staff are extremely helpful and kind. The place is immaculate and very quaint. The breakfast is good and affordable. For the price, I would have appreciated water that did not smell terrible. And a bed that my husband and I can share in one of the private family rooms would have been great. Not keen on bunk beds as a couple.

Response from Heradsskolinn:
Dear Christy Thank you so much for your review. We are sorry to hear that your room was not optimal for you, hopefully we get the change to welcome you again where we provide you with a room suitable for a couple. Regarding the water, then we have been experiencing untreated geothermal water coming into our system ( it is extremely healthy but it does not smell the best ). This problem is being fixed this week. Best regards & hopefully we will see you again

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.
