located on the other side of the horse shoe from Djupivogur along the coast, this hostel is located in a farmland. Set behind a fantastic mountain range, overlooking the fjords,the ocean and Djupivogur at a distance, the scenery alone is worth the money. There are hiking trails for the active, or one can just stand outside, stare at the landscape and MARVEL.
Rooms and Bathrooms
Incredible - the kitchen is cosy, as is the dining area. It looks like one big booth at a resnt so the residents eat dinner together and socialise. And that works so well. The bathrooms are clean (although I don't know why icelandic bathrooms don't have windows or a ventilation switch). If I really have to be nitpicky, then I would say the beds. The top one in the bunker to be specific. The frame is kind of flat (with no protector panel) so one can always have this this phobia that he'll fall off!
Free internet + computer in the main building. The wireless signal isn't too strong in the adjoining buildings. The owner is very knowledgeable, friendly and warm. He runs the little rsnt (and bar) in the main building although the drinks can be expensive. But it's a nice place to socialise again.
Throughout my week's stay in Iceland save for 1 night, I stayed in YHA hostels and overall, each one has set the standard higher in terms of value for money, security and convenience. But when I look back years from now on my travels, not just on my Iceland trip but on ALL my trips to every single country, the YHA Berunes stands out as one of the best (if not the best) hostels ever.
