We slept here on the 22nd of september 2014. We read some negative things about teh owners not being friendly and the lack of water and toilets in teh cottages... we didn't have any of that. The owner was friendly and the cottage was excellent and spotless! It was very spacious for two persons and were very cosy. The two... More

I stayed at one of the cottage with some friends. It was really small, but the worst things were: - the staff that was really rude and unpleasant - everything had a fee: from the shower to internet. And after we payed for internet, the connection was really bad inside the cottage I really suggest do not go there!

Nice and clean cottage. It felt very small with four of us in there, but probably would have been fine if it hadn't been raining and we could have sat out the front. Didn't like that you had to pay for showers or the lack of view but had a great nights sleep. Great to have own kitchen and toilet

It was the first time that we stayed in a camping ground cottage and we were positively surprised to see how functional they are in all their simplicity. You get a kitchenette with two hotplates, kettle, toaster, crockery/cutlery and a separate room with good and large bunkbeds. The only drawback is that the cottages have no running water and that...

It's hard to find a place to stay where the view is not good in Iceland. But Hofn Cottages manages. But the rest is fine. They have refurbished the little sheds, now having their own toilet and little sink. So you can pretty much do everything in your own little house. Since Hofn is the only big place around, this...

The huts and the bathroom facilities were clean and nice. We didn't have to pay for bedding which was a plus after we had to pay for it at other places. We didnt particularly like the location, there wasnt much to do in Hofn and it was really secluded from other places where there were things to do. We found... More

For the price, we got an ok deal. Cute little cottage with four bunks for 3 of us. When we arrived (off season) we had to pop to the petrol station so they could ring the owners to let us in. Not overly friendly at first but warmed up, and recommended a lovely restaurant to try the local icelandic lobster... More

We were rather impressed with the Hofn cottages--when an employee at the local tourist info centre phoned for current rates we were immediately offered an off-season discount without requesting one. The cottage heater was efficient and quickly warmed up the cabin while we had a pint and reindeer burgers at nearby Kaffi Hornid. The cabin comes equipped with a hot... More

We were kind of disappointed with this accommodation because while we had a cottage, it did not come with a shower. Toilets are shared with the campsite and we had to pay for the shower. Machine-operated, every 2 mins cost 50kr. There is only 1 shower for the male and 1 for the female, so people were queuing in the... More
