    This guesthouse was within walking distance of a pleasant diner, close to gas stations and easily accessible. The property is well maintained and spotless. The rooms have adequate space and there are common areas and kitchen privileges.

    Everything was perfect, except could’ve used better black out curtains for summer midnight sun months. But great comfy spot.

    Biggest issue was soap dispensers in every shared water closets were empty. We stayed two nights and never addressed. Room very small with sloped ceilings where we bumped our heads numerous times reaching for items on nightstands. Rug in room curled up on corner which caused tripping.

    Great little guesthouse

    Very clean. Comfortable bed but as I have wished all throughout Iceland it sure would be nice to have an extra pillow or two in the room. Next trip I am definitely bringing my own pillow!! Watch as you use their unique folding shower. If you take a normal bath the water piles up and doesn’t drain and the water will end up all over the bathroom floor! Found this out too late. Interesting concept in design but not intended for normal water use I don’t think. Over all a lovely place and we loved the town also. Would recommend a trip over the mountain to Seydisfjordur. It is wild.

    Nothing around one dinner and a restaurant that did not open. Bathroom smell, room very small for two person. No one to check you in or out. It’s worth more of your money to stay at the hotel. Will not stay there again.

    Convenient Guesthouse

    This was quite a good Guesthouse compared to others in Iceland! We received check in instructions the day before arrival and had no issues checking in/out. If you chose the breakfast option, you’re given a voucher for a diner up the road (literally less than a minute drive) which had a decent selection for breakfast. There were also lots of places nearby for dinner. The only thing that was slightly annoying were the bedroom curtains as they let in (what felt like) a fair bit of light which made sleeping a bit difficult when the sun doesn’t really set until 11pm at night - this could just be something we aren’t used to not being from Iceland but we found other places we stayed in Iceland did have better curtains. Either way, still a great place to stay for the price :)
