The hostel offers a variety of different rooms both with private and shared bathroom. It is ideal for families with different options in size and comfort, as well as for couples or friends groups and individual travellers who prefer the classic dorm bed. If you like to feel inspired by beautiful design, want to relax and recharge the batteries and have the chance to meet different people…. then the Old Hospital Hostel is your perfect spot in Seydisfjordur.

Best Hostel Ever!

The hostel is just beautiful, cosy and warm. Staff is really nice and helpful. The owner is a generous and funny person. The common room is together with eating area and really big kitchen. Breathtaking view from every other window. Bathrooms clean and modern. Beds comfy. Interior? I fell in love with that interior <3 Loved it there so much.

A home away from home.

We stayed in a room with a private bathroom, everything was so very well maintained. The Hostel had a fully equipped common kitchen and lovely area for enjoying your meal and visiting with travellers from it seemed all over the world.

Highly recommended!

Welcoming, well-maintained hostel in gorgeous setting.

Seydisfjordur is well worth a visit, and this hostel is the perfect, low-key place to stay. Converted from an old hospital, it’s got tonnes of character and charm. It’s a spacious building, with a large, well-equipped kitchen. We had a private room, which was clean and airy. Friendly, helpful staff. Would definitely stay again if I was in the area.
