The Experience

New Hostel opening in June 2017. Located in a small peaceful village in North Iceland. Seal watching and beautiful nature is the main attraction in the area. I need help with welcoming my guests, help with check in and making sure everything is OK. The hostel is self-service, guests can make small meals in shared kitchen. No meals are provided. We hope to create a relaxed, warm atmosphere for our guests.

I had a very nice and relaxing time at the Hvammstangi Hostel. Rakel received us as family from day one. She was very flexible about the work hours and the days off. Work is pretty chill and you get to meet a lot of nice people from all around the world. The hostel is very nice and cozy. We were lucky to see some Northern Lights thanks to Rakel because she was always on the lookout and it was the most amazing experience! We couldn't have asked for a better place to work at our stay here.
