The Freezer Hostel is a sociable, lively, welcoming hostel on the Snaefellnes Peninsula, renowned for its cultural centre and theatre. Travellers who want to experience both Iceland’s spectacular nature and its thriving culture, particularly those on a budget, will appreciate this fantastic choice of accommodation.

Location & Nearby

The Freezer Hostel is located on the coast of Rif, a small village on the Snaefellsnes Peninsula. Here, travellers can find shops, groceries and other services, as well as beautiful views over the ocean. This settlement is just a few kilometres from Snaefellsjokull National Park, an incredible wilderness named after the Snaefellsjokull glacier at its centre.

Within this park are plenty of breathtaking sites; the incredible sea stacks of Londrangar, for example, are just 25 minutes away, whereas the windswept villages of Arnarstapi and Hellnar can be reached in 35.

Other popular sites on the peninsula include Kirkjufell, the mountain from Game of Thrones; Ytri Tunga, a seal-watching beach; and the haunting Berserkjahraun lava field. Those renting a car can get to them in only 20 minutes, 50 minutes and an hour respectively.

Facilities & Amenities

Guests coming to the Freezer Hostel can book rooms in mixed four-, six- and eight-bed dormitories, which are brightly coloured and furnished with comfortable bunk beds. These rooms share regularly maintained bathrooms with showers and hair dryers. There is also a four-bedroom dorm with private facilities that you can book. The kitchens are clean, bright, fully furnished, communal, and have plenty of space for everyone.

The Freezer Hostel’s greatest appeal is its lively, social atmosphere. The Freezer Cultural Centre, which hosts movie nights, quizzes and karaoke, is open for all guests. The Freezer Theatre, meanwhile, regularly hosts concerts with international and local bands, as well as stage performances based on Icelandic culture, folklore and history. The latter is only open in summer, however.

You are also welcome to enjoy a large living room year-round, which boasts board games, books, and many comfortable seating areas. Wifi is free and fast throughout the hostel.
