Located on the south coast just 10 minutes from Highway 1 and Selfoss, 45 minutes from Reykjavík, Eyrarbakki is the perfect base to explore:
- The Golden Circle
- The South Coast waterfalls and geological formations
- Reykjanes Peninsula geology and geothermal areas
- Hellisheiði Geothermal Power Plant
- Árnessýsla Folk Museum and Maritime Museum in Eyrarbakki
Our little village is right on the seaside, and it is quiet, tranquil, and safe. Enjoy the fresh sea air and the sound of the waves when you step out the door. Walk the length of the town or even to Stokkseyri on the seaside path, starting just behind the building. Take in the colorful old houses and learn about the history of Iceland. Watch seabirds and shore birds in summer or the northern lights in the winter, right outside your door.
Bakki Hostel & Apartments has 36 bunk beds in shared dorms for 6-12 people each, and 13 apartments that can be arranged as double, triple or quad rooms as needed, or as single rooms for teachers, guides, and drivers, to accommodate a school group of 50+.
We are all back in Ireland and I just wanted to write to tell you how happy we were with the hostel and restaurant. It is one of the best experiences I have had as a teacher travelling with a group of students. The location was perfect, the facilities were excellent and the staff were so helpful. The restaurant staff were also equally great to deal with and the food was super.
Thank you for all of your help. The students have amazing memories that will last them a lifetime. I will definitely be back to Bakki Hostel!
