    Fantastic staff and facilities at Snotra, enjoyed our first few nights staying here, warm clean and cosy - even saw the Northern Lights thanks to the receptionist, who waited for us to arrive a little late from the airport

    Really nice hostel, lovely staff, clean and has everything you need. 100% recommend. It's a great option to stay for a bunch of days while you travel the south of Iceland as it is pretty close to most things.

    I've been really well received by Angelika and Artur during 5 days this february. They are very nice, dedicated and they will make everything they can to make your journey enjoyable in Iceland. Cleanness is absolutely perfect and you will find everything you need to cook in the kitchen, nothing to complain about. Do note that (as stated in the description) the hostel is several kilometers from any grocery store, gas station or any other service so having a personal vehicle is pretty mandatory !

    Arthur is a tremendous host making you feel welcomed from the first second. An added boost that I wish I knew beforehand was there are a ton of extra camping propane tanks that you are free to use and take with you on the road! Such a cool little tip! The kitchen has literally everything you'd need to make a stay simple & give you the freedom to cook your own meal! The bathrooms are very well cleaned and maintained and you can't ask for more than a clean bed and a warm shower after a long day.

    This place was amazing! The staff were wonderful; they accommodated my arriving very late in the night and let me linger in the common area after check-out to get myself prepped for the following day. This place has everything you need, it's super quirky and friendly staff... oh and on a clear day has an incredible view of the volcanoes, what more could you ask for!

    Great place! Very clean and updated, staff was super friendly. It’s about a 15-20 min drive off route 1 and there’s nothing around the hostel- so make sure you stop at a grocery store or grab dinner before going!
