Property Description

Hafaldan HI Hostel is located in the towns centre in the historic old hospital. The building has been under constant renovation for the last few years and is without a doubt one of Iceland’s most charming hostels with beautiful interior design and attention to detail.
The hostel offers great common facilities, self-catering kitchen with everything needed for preparing a good meal. The newest pride is the little 'SPA' where guests can enjoy a sauna and relax after a busy day of sightseeing. Free to use for everyone staying in the hostel.

Sustainable hostelling has always been a cornerstone in the hostel's practices, led by Hostelling International who have been pioneers and led the way around the world in that field. A charging station for cars is available at site, all garbage possible is recycled & the aim is to end every season with planting trees to meet the carbon footprint created.

The hostel offers a variety of different rooms both with private & shared bathroom and is ideal for families, couples, group of friends or individual travelers who prefer the classic dorm bed.

A great place to stay and relax. The old hospital turned hostel was very friendly and welcoming, with payment for the facilities on a trust basis. The sauna was a welcome treat, and the showers were excellent. Inside , the hostel retains many of the original features and the decor is very traditional..I would fully recommend the hostel, but Seyisfjordur itself probably warrants an overnight stay, rather than the 2 nights we booked.

What a fun and pleasant stay in Seydisfjordur! Check in was a little strange since no staff person was around, but fine. The facilities were clean and the shared kitchen space was organized and well stocked with utensils and tools, a convection oven and espresso maker. The only bad thing (which was not the fault of the hostel) was there was this loud guest who insisted on having a loud facetime call in the common area right outside our room. The laundry/dryer and the sauna were a nice touch.

Loved this hostel. The view from the dorm was amazing. Kitchen was really well equipped and a pleasure to cook in. Staff were really good and gave me some great advice on local walks. Highly recommend.
