The Freezer is a social hostel situated in a retro style renovated fish factory in the small town of Rif on the Snæfellsnes peninsula. We have a bar, regular events and an artists residency running at our premises and a national park on our doorstep.
Have you ever bunked in an Icelandic theatre or shared a homemade breakfast with fellow backpackers and visiting artists, discussing The Smiths being the best 80´s band, why Leo never wins the Oscar, Dadaism or Peter Gabriels' solo career?
At The Freezer, all of this could happen. This homemade hostel is a lively artistic and cultural hotspot that also includes an artist residency and an independent theatre that regularly creates and stages shows inspired by local folklore and sagas.
Spirits are high in this place and the odds of making a new friend increase with each traveller, elf, clown, brother-in-law, troll, spaceman, trainspotter or pancake-maker that comes by
On top of these shenanigans, The Freezer is conveniently placed in west Iceland, amidst the stunning natural sights (alien infested glacier*) of Snæfellsjökull national park.
*According to almost reliable local legends and highly questinable sightings.
Our guests can access all of our space and are encouraged to embrace being around us and the other guests.

Other things to note
This is a social hostel. That means that people are interacting and things (events, music, laughing, talking, getting-to-knowing etc..) are going on.
We expect our guests to respect each other, clean up after themselves and be friendly and understanding to one another. If others have gone to sleep we expect people to be quiet and not wake them up. If others still have to use the kitchen we expect those who are using it to make sure its clean and ready for the next one to use. We believe in trust and togetherness so our main focus is on our guests being generally nice to live with.

I am a friendly social hostel in Rif, Iceland. I like culture and people and making new friends. I also like providing entertainment such as theatre shows, live music and other artsy stuff.
My style of hosting is laid back and informal. I like guests to feel like they´re at home and amongst friends.
Can´t live without my phone, art, culture, interesting conversations, music and people
