Hafaldan HI hostel

Hafaldan HI hostel  guarantees you a warm welcome in one of two distinctive and atmospheric wooden buildings; Hafaldan Harbour Hostel and Hafaldan old Hospital Hostel.

Hafaldan Harbour Hostel was established in 1975 and nestles on the north side of the Seydisfjordur fjord, just by the harbour and a relaxing 2 minutes from the town centre. This location presents unforgettable views over the fjord and mountains, enjoyed by both you and the owner of the hostel who lives in one half of the building, giving your stay a very homely feel. The hostel offers twin, double and 4 bedded rooms all with shared facilities.

Hafaldan old Hospital Hostel is conveniently located in central Seydisfjordur in the historic former hospital building. The building was renovated in 2013 to better meet the needs of our guests and we have had very good feedback from our visitors who rave about the Kitchen and Dining hall as well as the good atmosphere. The hostel offers private double rooms and shared facility double, twin, 4/5 bedded, plus 6 man dormitory rooms.

In both buildings there are great facilities on offer for guests; excellent common rooms, kitchens, dining and sitting areas, washing machines and free Wi-Fi Internet connection. Bed linen can be rented and breakfast baskets can be bought.

Hafaldan HI hostel is a green HI hostel with an option to recycle. All compost goes to the “Happy Hens” in Hafaldan Harbour, and you can swap a 100 krona coin in for a fresh egg in the hostel kitchen. This service depends on the balance though between egg production and staff/guest consumption and can’t be guaranteed.
