About the property

Heradsskolinn at Laugarvatn is located in the heart of the Golden Circle nature paradise. The newly renovated historical building was formerly one of Iceland´s main schools but has now been reinvented as a boutique hostel.There is a good spirit in the building and the area, and we want to share it with the rest of the world.

We offer dorms, private rooms with shared bathrooms and private rooms with private bathrooms.There are geothermal baths only 300 meters from the building and the nature is just amazing. Þingvellir national park, Geysir and Gullfoss waterfall are all within a 30 min drive.

This is private and spacious twin room with made-up beds, shared bathroom facilities. These rooms are ideal for couples or individuals. Free WiFi included and downstairs is a cafe, restaurant, tv-room, musical instruments, library and a chill out lounge.

We provide information and help to our guests on their journey in Iceland and we love to talk and chat with our guests.

Very nice from the outside as well as inside.

  • 4 of 5

Everything was very clean and the atmosphere of the old school building was very cool. The restaurant and breakfast were both very good. Conviently close to the gas station and grocery store. Bathrooms and common area in the basement are great and there's a fridge down there to keep food in since the rooms have just enough space for beds and a couple bags. Only inconvenience was having to take off shoes before being able to go anywhere in the hostel but at least it keeps everything clean.

comfortable home base for exploring south Iceland

  • 5 of 5

We booked a double room with a bathroom and shared kitchen in the hostel, but were upgraded to a spacious apartment with a kitchen, bedroom, and large living room with additional bunks! It was clean, comfortable, and quiet, and we enjoyed our stay very much. The area around Laugarvatn was amazing to explore, and this was a great location from which to do that.

It would have been nice to have a little more information about the immediate surrounding area (stores, attractions very close by --other than Fontana spa--that we almost missed) as well as a few basic food prep. supplies such as salt and pepper.

Our most relaxing stay away from home.

  • 5 of 5

Staff was extremely welcoming and helpful. Both dinner and breakfast were excellent using locally sourced ingredients and prepared with care and talent. Easy to access off the highway, with a fabulous view of surrounding mountains and lake. A great surprise at the end of a busy day.
