Icelandic Hostel Ranked Among Best In The World

Published November 8, 2011

A youth hostel in Reykjavík was ranked by Gadling in the top ten most eco-friendly hostels in the world.
Gadling, which is AOL Travel’s blog, regularly compiles reviews of different tourist services around the world, many of them based on the experiences of everyday travelers.
This year, among the “10 best eco-friendly hostels in the world”, Gadling includes Reykjavík City Hostel, of which it says:

Not only is Reykjavík City Hostel eco-friendly itself, it is also located next to a big geothermal swimming pool, beautiful waterfalls, explosive geysers, and other natural wonders for an even greener experience. Moreover, the hostel practices extensive recycling services, energy monitoring, and erosion control, offers a breakfast of local and organic fare, and sells fair-trade beverages at their cafe. While enjoying free Wi-Fi, a BBQ terrace, lounges, game rooms, and comfortable beds, guests can also take part in educational programs that will offer knowledge on sustainability and green living.
