Compared with other Hostels in Iceland around 100 € per night, this Hostel is quiet good! The stuff is very friendly and makes all guests comfortable within the first minute. The Rooms and shared bathrooms are very clean and friendly furnished. The breakfast was good Standard, too, everything was fine. We would be lucky, if every Hostel in the world... More

I must preface this review by saying that I did not actually stay in the farm house itself. There was a mix-up with our reservation and only 1 room was booked. The managers gave us the whole top floor of the workers house. It was no frills but really cool. Huge rooms, a kitchen and bathroom all too ourselves and... More

A very calm and relaxed place with fresh and bright rooms. Comfortable beds. Super friendly staff. Nice surroundings. We loved the breakfast! This guesthouse is a good one night stop when travelling the ring road by car. No dinner in the evening, but there are some options in the town a short drive away. The price is good. We enjoyed...

It was rainy and cloudy and the only thing to do was to get some rest at the hotel. we went in and almost immediately felt like coming home. The habit to take our shoes off, the kindness of Fredric and his wife, the cake at afternoon tea and the arrangement of the guesthouse gave us that great feeling. We... More

This guesthouse incorporates a modern church which is unusual, but our family had 2 twin rooms directly off the church which made for a very peaceful stay. The rooms and bathrooms are very clean. As other reviewers have said, there are only 2 toilets upstairs, but there is an additional room downstairs with a row of toilet cubicles, so it... More

Great place to spend a few nights at. Lovely service and surroundings! Close to many of the must-see attractions in the area! One of the best places we stayed at during our trip around Iceland! The farm house feeling plus the friendly staff made this guesthouse unforgettable for us

My boyfriend and I stayed at this charming guesthouse on our road trip around Iceland. We truly enjoyed the beautiful view, the comfortable room and the nice hike around the area! And above all the excellent service of the staff that works there! The day after we checked out, I noticed that I had forgotten my glasses at the guesthouse... More

We were only staying the one night, which is a shame in retrospect given the gorgeous surroundings. The room was clean and spacious, we had a nice little balcony. The showers and toilets, although outside the room, were clean and completely acceptable. Owners were very friendly, and the breakfast was basic but actually quite varied. Quiet, clean, friendly, and comfortable.... More

A rather large guesthouse set in a quiet area off the ring road. Nice views towards the river that runs nearly through the backyard, some local walks on the premises. On the downside you can hear every word of your neighbours and if people are talking in the common areas, you'll have quite a hard time sleeping.

Nice, clean, quiet place. Breakfast was basic. Shared bathrooms and toilets were separate and very clean and spacious. However, there were only 2 showers and 2 toilets for 10 rooms... not really sufficient. Rooms were modern, clean and had a wash basin and mirror. Atmosphere was a bit stifling because it was so quiet. Sound-proofing wasn't good enough. Wifi doesn't... More
