    Einfach Unterkunft

    Die Lage der Unterkunft ist sehr schön. Das Zimmer ist sehr klein. Bettwäsche muss selbst auf und abgezogen werden. Was kein Problem wäre, leider haben die Bezüge kleine Öffnungen um die Decke/das Kissen in die Bettwäsche zu bekommen. Beleuchtung: hätte heller sein können. Badezimmer in die Jahre gekommen und nicht richtig sauber. WC Sitz lose. Küche: rustikal, zweckmässig. Kiosk: es gibt dort Getränke, Souvenirs etc. zu kaufen. Parkplatz: auf dem Hof, kostenlos. Personal: sehr freundlich. Umgebung: kurzer Weg zum Strand und zum Hvítserkur. Gut zu Fuß von der Unterkunft zu erreichen.

    Great people, great place, great views

    We had a great stay at Osar Hostel. The owner explained us everything and showed us a beach, where we could watch the seals later that night. All in all a perfect spot to spend the night during our Iceland trip. Will definitely book this place again on our next trip to Iceland

    Freundlicher Empfang in atemberaubender Landschaft

    Das Ósar Hostel ist ein Juwel auf der Halbinsel Vatnsnes. Wer dort übernachtet, hat das Glück, nicht nur Schafe, sondern auch Seehunde vom Zimmerfenster aus beobachten zu können. Der Felsen Hvitserkur ist in einem kurzen (schwarzen) Strandspaziergang erreichbar. Der Ausblick vom alten Farmhaus über den Fjord und das Meer ist unglaublich. Die Zimmer sind funktional aber sehr gemütlich eingerichtet, die Betten sehr bequem. Das Bad war super sauber und die Gemeinschaftsküche sehr gut ausgestattet. Wir waren die einzigen Gäste und wurden mega freundlich empfangen - absolute Empfehlung!

    Enkelt og hyggelig nær Hvitserkur

    Enkelt og hyggelig utenfor allfarvei. Meget hyggelig vert som ga oss fin info om nærområdet. Perfekt for å se den spesielle steinen Hvitserkur i både solnedgang og soloppgang. Bre få minutter å gå, enten langs stranda eller veien. Fantastisk dyreliv med ærfugl og andre fugler, og mange seler! Få turister. Huset er enkelt, men rent og det er lett å lage mat selv. Veien inn fra ringveien 1 er humpete, men går fint med helt vanlig bil.
