Dalvik Hostel Gimli is an affordable, comfortable hostel with a range of accommodation options, perfect for travelers to north Iceland on a budget. Any touring Iceland hoping to explore the magnificent sites around Dalvik without breaking the bank will find no better option.
Location & Nearby
As its name suggests, Dalvik Hostel Gimli can be found in Dalvik, a small town on the fjord of Eyjafjordur in North Iceland. This puts it 35 minutes drive north of the capital of the region, Akureyri. Within Dalvik, you’ll find services such as groceries and gas stations, and within Akureyri, you’ll also find a wealth of boutiques, restaurants, bars, and other attractions.
Both of these towns are renowned for their whale-watching, fishing culture, and skiing opportunities, as well as their spectacular surrounding nature. Dalvik, however, is much less visited due to its distance from the Ring Road, making it quite the hidden gem for travelers getting off the beaten track.
As such, it is a great place to connect with traditional Icelandic culture, particularly during the sheep round-up in Autumn.
Facilities & Amenities
Dalvik Hostel Gimli has two shared kitchens with all facilities required for self-catering, as well as well-maintained shared bathrooms with showers. There is also a spacious, comfortable living area with a computer for the use of guests, and free Wifi can be accessed throughout the building.
It is possible to book a single, double or triple room, or else a bed in a five- or six-bed room, based on your group size, budget, and desires. The dorms are mixed gender.
