4/10 Fair

Charge for basic stuff
This hostel lured us in with a cheap price and then tried to charge us for basic amenties. 2000 kr for a pillow and sheets? You gotta be kidding me. I ended up using the bed skirt as a sheet because I refused to pay. Everything else about the place was decent and it was clean although I didn't see another guest the whole time which was a bit off-putting. Pool looked nice if you want to pay for the showers.

Ok place to sleep but not much more
Booked a basic twin room which wasn't clear that it didn't provide covers and pillows for the beds. The cooking area was ok, had the equipment but was far away and staff made you feel like it was an inconvenience that you wanted to use it instead of paying a lot to eat in their restaurant. The hot pool was great though, prefect place to relax after a long day exploring the western fjords! Although don't plan on doing this in the morning as we wanted to but they were cleaning it.

Une ancienne école en internat très isolée et restée avec une déco d'époque. Plutôt propre mais basique et surtout rapport qualité prix très bas même pour l’Islande. La cuisine hors sac comme le reste date des années d’avant ou d'après guerre. Ce ne serait pas un problème si le prix était adapté. Les draps, serviettes de toilette et couvertures sont en supplément (2000 couronnes par personne) pour une chambre avec deux petits lits type dortoir de collège pour 147€ la nuit. J’ai trouvé ça exagéré. La nuit suivante nous étions dans un hostel tout neuf pour 69€ tout compris. Les bains chauds sont appréciables et la géothermie du coin mérite une balade indiquée sur un panneau numéroté. Une usine de sel géothermique en contrebas vers la piste d’atterissage. On est transporté dans une autre époque ce qui nous a laissé de bons souvenirs !

Für eine Nacht o.k., ansonsten besser woanders
Wir hatten ein Zweibettzimmer im Hostel gebucht, mussten aber zur Kenntnis nehmen, dass man dort nur mit eigenen Schlafsäcken übernachten kann. Bei der Buchung über wurden wir aber nicht darauf hingewiesen. Wir mussten auf das Hotelzimmer upgraden, wodurch sich die Übernachtung um 50% ( ca.€ 45,-- ) verteuerte. Der Chef des Haus war sehr hilfsbereit. Da wir selbst kochen wollten, überließ er uns die Küche einer ehemaligen Schule. Leider waren das Kochgeschirr sehr unsauber, zum Teil mit alten Kochresten behaftet. Überhaupt ist das Gebäude sehr abgewohnt und desolat. Türen schließen schlecht etc. Wir glauben die Tage sind gezählt. Angenehm das angrenzende beheizte Schwimmbad, das man kostenlos nutzen kann.

Hostel assez isolé. Pas de cuisine commune, ni micro-onde, ni frigo. Piscine extérieure. Restauration extérieure des façades en cours.
