Our reviews

True Icelandic family spirit
"We came across this place quite by accident, becuae we usually book in just a couple of hours on our way. As a result, we are lucky to get into a place like Berunes Hi Hostel. It's well hidden, in the wilderness - between the lake and the mountains. There are no words to describe the hospitality and beauty of the places where the hostel is located. And of course - their tribute to the traditions."

Best hostel I have ever stayed at
"This was hands down the best hostel I have ever stayed at. The staff are so kind, and the atmosphere is warm and welcoming. The pop up restaurant was a very welcome surprise and the food was exceptional. The rooms are very clean and cozy, and all at a reasonable price. I also appreciated the emphasis on sustainability! You can tell this place is run from the heart, and I would definitely recommend it to anyone travelling along the East fjords."

Picturesque location and beautifully clean with a warm welcome
"Very picturesque setting and an incredible drive to get there. Beautifully clean and well cared for property and the welcome was very warm. We didn’t have dinner there as we had other plans but it looked great. The breakfast we did have and it was very nice and I especially enjoyed the homemade elements to it. Thank you for our stay!"
