Definately the nicest of all the guesthouses we stayed at during our two week trip around Iceland. We'd had a hard time trying to find somewhere to stay that night and had tried about four others which were full or reception was not available so when we wound up at Bakki we were just about done. The owner Soffia pulled... More

Our stay at Bakki Guesthouse was great. We were greeted promptly and received many wonderful suggestions of places to explore. The room was fantastic, with a beautiful view out towards the ocean, mountains and glaciers. Super comfortable bed. We could enjoy use of the well-stocked kitchen for breakfast.

I must say Hofn was an idyllic place, so quiet and peaceful and Bakki guesthouse was in perfect harmony with its location. Right next to a bay, you could enjoy a stroll early in the morning or late in the evening (we went there in August) and enjoy the sound of the ocean in an otherwise serene surrounding. The guesthouse... More

I need to be honest here.......we never stayed in a B&B, Guesthouse or any other private establishments ever and I have to say that Bakki was perfect. Soffia (the owner) made sure everything was ready for us when we arrived, including a huge breakfast next day with everything you can imagine for an awesome morning meal. We only stayed there...

Located one short step from a beautiful bay this very nice guesthouse was one of the best we got to stay in during our trip. The house was very well equipped and nicely decorated with pictures of the area that took the husband of the lady that runs the place. We were lucky to get the big room on the... More

We stayed at Bakki Guesthouse for two nights and had a wonderful time! Lára took great care of us and provided a very nice breakfast each morning. The house is quaint and cozy, and the rooms are a decent size with great views of Höfn. They only have a few rooms, so reserve early so you won’t miss out.

Bakki Guesthouse The location of Bakki Guesthouse is amazing. It's right on the end of the water. Make sure you take a walk on the beautiful path along the water. I found this guesthouse quite simple, but tidy. It has 4 or 5 small rooms. The walls were paper thin (bring earplugs) and the decor looks a bit tired. The... More

This was our least favorite place during our trip. The owners were helpful, the rooms were clean, the location was good, but it was a full house and obtaining access to one of the two bathrooms was a headache. The upstairs bathroom door didn't close correctly, but when we locked it, the key jammed and we were locked in! We... More
