Location and Nearby
Twenty-five minutes east of Jokulsarlon, a magical glacier lagoon filled with icebergs, Vagnsstadir HI Hostel has a brilliant position for those eager to immerse themselves in Iceland’s nature. It is right at the end of the South Coast sightseeing route and right on the cusp of the east, making it perfect for those encircling the country or exploring these particular regions.
Amenities such as grocery stores, restaurants, and gas stations can be found in the town of Hofn, 40 minutes east. If you continue along the Ring Road from here, you’ll come to spectacular sites such as Mount Vestrahorn, Mount Budardalur, and the Eastfjords.
South Coast sites are just as easily accessible. The Skaftafell Nature Reserve is just an hour away; continuing west, you will see attractions such as Fjadrargljufur Canyon, the Reynisfjara beach, and the Dyrholaey Rock Arch.
Facilities and Amenities
Vagnsstadir HI Hostel has lodgings for those on a budget seeking a simple bed and those seeking more privacy in separate rooms. The six-bed dormitories are the most affordable and provide a social element for those looking to meet other travelers; otherwise, you can rent two- and four-bed rooms with shared bathrooms for similarly low prices. Those who want en suite bathrooms will find them in twin, triple, and quad rooms and a six-person cottage.
The hostel has a fully equipped communal kitchen and dining area, as well as a shared lounge. Free Wifi and parking are available for all guests, and there is a tour desk you can book excursions from during the day.
Due to the remoteness of the hostel, it is a great place to look for the aurora borealis in winter.
