The hostel is located in the town's old hospital and has a lot of flair. Everything was very clean and there is even a guest sauna in the basement. The staff was very friendly and told us a lot about the area.
The kitchen can get a bit too crowded at dinner and breakfast time
Sauna and kitchen were great! Good facilities and rooms.
Friendly reception and good clothes-washing facilities available. The kitchen seemed well equipped but we did not use it.
We booked a room with on-suite bathroom, paying the higher rate. Unfortunately, this comes with the "benefit" of hearing all of the other guest on the floor commuting to and from the toilets as well as all the flushing as the shared facilities are located right next to room number 20 and the walls have absolutely no sound proofing quality whatsoever. The lights above the beds were battery driven - not a major issue, despite the non-sustainable aspect - but rather a pitty that all the batteries were flat! The light above the toilet in our bathroom was not working so we checked the bulb, which lead to us discovering that there was clearly a rather disturbing wobbly electrical contact in the cabling. As soon as we touched the light it would flicker on and off. Beyond the lighting, the bathroom was clean but had a pervasive smell of mould and the small radiator's fixtures were broken so it was hanging on to the wall by luck more than anything else. This could potentially be dangerous if someone is careless and puts any kind of weight or pressure on it, as it may lead to a hot water pipe rupturing and scalding.
Seydisfjodur is very charming and I’m glad I chose to stay here over Egilstadir. Right next to an awesome swimming pool and the town bar. The rooms are very pretty
The building is just beautiful. Old hospital, very nicely decorated, very comfortable. Nice little sauna. All clean. Well equipped kitchen.
Quite noisy. You need earplugs for a proper sleep as you can hear every step of the other guests.
