Good place to stay before doing the fimmvörðuháls
Great place to stay before doing the fimmvörðuháls hike. Nice kitchen and shower. They have a decent breakfast too, but it is kind of expensive.

Poor 2.0
We went to this hostel and were unable to stay the night we originally booked. We talked to the owner who said he would refund the amount after contacted. However, when contacted the owner they refused to provide a refund even though we were told the day before they would.

We enjoyed Skogar hostel! We arrived late after a hike and left early before a long commute to another glacier hike. The staff member checking us in was very friendly, the beds were more comfortable than we anticipated, and the kitchen was well equipped. There was an issue with one of the showers not properly functioning (no hot water and the faucet was wonky), but the other two of us showered fine. It is noteworthy that guests must strip their own linen in the morning and put them into laundry bins - which we were fine with. Overall, a good stay for 3 women travelling who booked a room with a bunk bed and single bed. Not certain it the price was aligned with value, but we are only three nights into our adventure.
