Hafaldan youth hostel has been run by Thora Gudmundsdottir since 1975. Thora lives in the hostel with her staff. This makes the hostel more of a home than simply a sleeping bag accommodation. We would like you to come and visit us!
The Living Space
Our dining room can accommodate about 30 people, and offers a marvellous view over the whole fjord and the surrounding mountains. It's ideal for groups and travel agencies like to book the hostel for those trips. In the living room you will find TV, video and stereo equipment, old records, a library and board games, for those that just want to relax a little bit.
We offer seven rooms with four beds, each with hot and cold running water. Four rooms face the mountainside while the others are pointing out to the fjord. Families are welcome and a child cot can be provided upon request. Please note that we ask our guests not to smoke inside the hostel. Unless you come on a Wednesday, you will find the hostel a very quiet and peaceful place with only a few travellers.
The kitchen offers all necessary facilities. Though we don't offer breakfast or dinner for individual travellers, special arrangements for groups can be made. Just contact us in advance, we are famous for our breakfast buffet with homemade bread, pate, smoked salmon, fresh duck's eggs, etc.
Please note that although we are part of the Youth Hostel Association, there is no upper (or lower) age limit.
