Great and big common kitchen area for travelers to mingle. Met some really friendly people there that makes our stay fantastic. We went all together to catch the Northern Lights, though all of us just met! Well equipped kitchen. Lots of cooking can be done and chill there. Great place when you are trapped in snow weather!

Excellent stay-very clean, spacious, and friendly staff. The view from the beach front hostel is just incredible. We also saw the northern lights which was an added bonus! Wish we could have stayed for longer

We stayed here on the last leg of our trip around the ring road before heading back to Reykjavik. It's a tiny little town with minimal attractions and things to do except for Kirkjufell and Kirkjufellsfoss. The hostel was clean and relatively quiet - as is standard in Iceland the linens were extra. It was on par with what we...

I stayed in Grundarfjordur Apartments for 1 night after spending whole day in Snaefellsjoekull National Park. It’s also worth staying here for the view over Kirkjufell Mountain from the apartment. The whole place is extremely modern and clean, with lovely friendly reception staff (Please ensure that you needs to check in Grundarfjordur Hostel). I stayed in a single room with...

Firstly, this is not an expensive place so you really get what you pay for. Was slightly annoyed when we were told by reception at the stated address to drive to a separate building located a few minutes away. Our twin room (with attached bathroom) was clean and modern and there's a large communal kitchen where you can cook and...

Stopped here for a night on the way around the ring road. We got here late ish so didn't get too much of a look around the town but it seems like a nice spot. Staff were remarkably friendly and very helpful, answering all our questions. The hostel is spread over 3 buildings but from what I can tell it's...

If you're planning to visit Kirkjufell, this is a great no-frills place to stay. Very basic accommodation, not even a TV in the room, and the rooms are in a separate location from the place you check in. Rooms are on the 2nd floor, and you are not allowed to wear your shoes, and either have to leave them in...

First, my wife and I are seasoned world travelers. We decided on this hotel, as the other option in town was a bit pricier. We were sold on this hotel, as it offered a private bath - a luxury on the north side of the Snaefellsner Peninsula. In fact, our building was one of three buildings that the hostel uses...

I spent two weeks in Iceland and stayed in six different guest houses/hotels. I've also stayed in other hotels/pensions in various western European and Scandinavian locations and this one is, by far, the smallest ever. As far as I'm concerned, this room (we had a room with a private bath - not an apartment or a shared room in the...

We actually stayed at the "Grundarfjordur Guesthouse & Apartments" which is the other component of this entity and which is located separately from the youth hostel. The Guesthouse is located on the waterfront in a converted warehouse with excellent views of Kirkjufell. The accommodations are basic but clean with a large communal kitchen and the place appears to have opened...
