Bildudalur hostel, near Arnarfjordur, is one of the HI network of hostels in Iceland. The hostel is well situated south, on the West fjords with around 200 inhabitants. All basic services are available in town, More such as little grocery shop, ATM, cafe and restaurant. The hostel is perfectly located by the harbor where guests can watch the fishing boats sail in the fjord. The hostel has a good kitchen with various equipment for cooking and outside on the balcony you can find a barbecue. Comfortable living room with television, exchange-bookshelf and wireless internet free of charge. There are about 90 km from the hostel to Latrabjarg where the biggest bird cliffs in the world can be found and also the most Western point of Europe. The magnificent waterfall Dynjandi is about 50 km away from town. If the weather is gray or you just want to relax after a good day you can go to the hot tub and sauna at the gym or drive to Reykjafjordur where you can find a hot nature bath and a swimming pool out in the wild nature.
