Skógar Hostel

Hostel Skógar

Hostelling International

Welcome to our hostel

Hostel Skógar is situated in an old school, close to Skógafoss, one of the best known waterfalls in Iceland. Skógar is a popular place surrounded by great and varied nature - think glaciers, mountains, black beaches, green acres, forested areas, waterfalls and good hiking routes.

At the hostel you will find a common room to meet other travellers in, a TV room to chill out and watch a movie, a garden so you can sit outside when the weather’s good and a self-catering kitchen to cook your meals in – alternatively Anna’s Café nearby is the most favoured restaurant.

Skógar Hostel is a great stop over for those who are hiking over Fimmvörðuháls, which is one of the most popular routes in the country. The nearby Skógar Museum is also one of the most frequently visited of its kind in Iceland.

Very difficult staff. Tried to con us and make us pay more money than we had to. Room was boiling hot with no way of cooling it down. No lockers in room or places to keep belongings safe. Rooms were very cramped. Several cooker hobs didn't work and there was a lack of utensils in the kitchen. I've stayed at 24 hostels in my life and this was the worst, and the most expensive!

Spartan room with no bench or table to set luggage on and no soap provided in shower. Good buffet breakfast. Short walk to Skogafoss waterfall.

It could do with an update, kitchen tired (pans, knives, etc), only two working toilets . Felt like an annex to the more important Restuarant and hotel.
