Sorry :( No photos for this one either .

To take a break in the driving distances decided this was a good stopping point. Preferred it over Egilsstadir as it was on the fjords and had a hostel.

Booking gives you the location for the main hostel, which is more of a farmstead with a bunkhouse, and a bit outside the town. We did have to go up there to register, but because it was so busy we had been out in an 'overspill' 2nd hostel they have in the town.

Looked like an old school to me, but it was a far more 'central' location. Rooms were very basic, with four bunks and a desk squeezed into a room. Was shared toilets though.

Clean,had everything we needed, and it was alright to get into town and get something to eat. A bed is a bed at the end of the day.

Did get to bump into the French family from Hofn again, so it was quite nice not arriving as strangers :)

Worth the detour off the main road for location, the atmosphere, and the opportunity to see one of the other falls. The experience of driving the road in hazardous conditions balanced against the views when it was clear are optional ;)
