Info

Welcome to Lava Hostel

Lava Hostel offers low price accommodation in Iceland’s capital area, only 10 minutes drive from Reykjavík city center. The hostel is owned and run by the scout group Hraunbúar in Hafnarfjörður, a town built on lava grounds.

From the hostel there is only a few minutes’ walk away from the unspoiled nature and we are also close to bus stops, shops, restaurants, museums, swimming pools, airport shuttle and various activities.

In this great atmosphere we offer rooms for groups of 10 or larger (2 weeks advance booking) as well as an assembly hall that can be rented out for events or as a sleeping bag space and we have a camp site open during the summer.

Lava Hostel is situated in Hafnarfjörður‘s lava area, just a stone’s throw away from one of the greatest hidden folk and elves populations in Iceland, but Hafnarfjörður, is known as the home of elves and vikings.

If your mind is torn between the city life and quiet nature, Lava Hostel is most definitely the place for you. We offer you the best of both worlds.
