The Hvammstangi Hostel is a fantastic choice of social, affordable accommodation between regions of west and north Iceland. It has particular appeal to those who want to stay in a beautiful small town while on a Ring Road adventure around the country.
Location & Nearby
The Hvammstangi Hostel, as its name suggests, is in the village of Hvammstangi, which sits on the north Icelandic peninsula of Trollaskagi. The town is home to the Icelandic Seal Centre, a fascinating exhibition only 25 minutes’ walk from the accommodation, and the peninsula is best known for the mystical Hvitserkur rock monolith, which can be reached in 45 minutes by car. The wildlife and coastal beauty of this area are breathtaking.
Hvammstangi is a fantastic place to stay for Ring Road travellers, or at least those exploring multiple regions, because of its centrality to several diverse areas. The largest towns of the north and the Snaefellsnes Peninsula, Akureyri and Stykkisholmur, are only two and a half hours’ drive away; Holmavik in the Westfjords can be reached in two hours; and Reykholt in the west can be accessed in 90 minutes.
Facilities & Amenities
There are 30 rooms at the Hvammstangi Hostel, and they are all the same; each has a comfy bunk-bed that can accommodate two and a beautiful view of the ocean. The bathrooms, kitchen, dining area and living room are all communal, welcoming, and regularly maintained for the comfort of the guests.
Fast and free Wifi is available throughout the hostel, and the lounge has a television with several channels and Netflix downloaded for those with a password.
