    The location is perfect - a quieter country stay, the ability to see clear skies, close to sights. We absolutely loved our little cabin there. For dinner we had the lamb which they farm on site - it was probably the best meal we had in Iceland. Thank you for a lovely stay!

    Cute cabin near a canyon

    Our cabin was very cute and clean. However, the parking location was a bit too far to take all our luggage and with all the snow, it was hard. The restaurant at the main building is very cute and clean and we had a nice breakfast the morning after we arrived.

    Perfect stay

    We had only one night stop, but it was perfect. Clean and nice cabin. Personnel very friendly, giving recommendations what to do in the area. When you choose to stay in Hunkubakkar Guesthouse try their kitchen. Perfect, delicious food.

    This guesthouse was very clean and located in a beautiful area. We also very much enjoyed the breakfast that was included and the dinner that we were able to include on site. The bed was quite comfortable and overall was a great experience, especially after traveling all day.

  • 6.0.Good

    We enjoyed the concept of small cottages, but not that much having to share it with someone else (separate rooms). Bathroom is fairly small, and overall it isn't super clean. Staff is very kind and helpful. Breakfast is good and copious.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    One of our favorite places to stay at during our trip to Iceland. Only a 10 minute drive away from beautiful Fjaðrárgljúfur Canyon, so you can visit in the morning or in the evening and avoid the crowds. Cabins provided privacy and are modern and clean. Beds are comfortable and bathrooms come with self-enclosed shower stalls; however, sink is small and toilet is somewhat awkwardly placed near sink. Hotel restaurant serves delicious dinner at a price that is typical for Iceland. Included breakfast buffet is great and filling. Surroundings are charming and it feels like you're living in the countryside in your own log cabin.
