Vök Baths

Wonderful floating warm baths in the middle of Urriðavatn, only 5 km from Egilsstaðir. Vök is an exceptional natural experience, framed into a beautiful design. Something nobody should miss out on when coming to the East.

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.
