1 night in this guesthouse in a not a so nice building but all 1st floor has been fully fitted for receiving visitors (kitchen, showers, lounge ...) It is very clean, and staff is ready to advise, support ... You will have the choice to ask for bed linen or to sleep in your sleeping bag according to your budget.... More

I enjoyed staying here. We stayed in a room with one bed and a bunk bed. It was very comfortable and the room was nice and spacious. Theres a kitchen with everything you need to cook and a fridge/freezer to store your items. The dining area is great and everything was really clean. You even have to take your shoes... More

I really liked the guy running this place. We drove through some nasty weather, and stopped here before taking on "the gnarly road" in the morning that connects the east coast to the north. Our room had a queen bed and a bunk bed, which was nice, because i got the queen and got to spread out. The common areas... More

Used this place just for a night for a stop over whilst doing the ring road. It was immaculate inside and looked recently refurbished and rooms were of a generous size. Also good amenities for self catering (cooker etc). In the centre of town and easy to find. We ate in the gas station across the road from it and... More

We've made our booking through booking.com and noticed that the check-in time is between 4pm and 9pm. The fine print also states that guests expected to arrive beyond 10pm are requested to inform the management in advance. To be safe, I had informed the management in advance of the possible late check-in at 9.30pm. However, no one was there when... More

Centrally located in the "big city" of the east: bank, supermarket and a gas station nearby. The guesthouse is clean, roomy and modern. The rooms are large enough with large windows and good heating. Well equipped kitchen but a bit small if you are not the only one in the mood for some cooking. They don't provide breakfast but you... More

The first thing you MUST know is that check-in is 4PM. We can't recall seeing that anywhere. We thought the place had gone out of business and almost left to find other place to sleep. They need to state check-in time on their site and on their front door because no one is there to let you in before 4PM..... More

We were pleasantly surprised at how modern Lyngás Guesthouse is. The rooms are huge and would qualify as a hotel if not for the shared shower and washroom facilities. There’s a huge kitchen facility and nice dining area. The staff was pleasant and everything was spotlessly clean. No problems with parking since the property has a large lot. If we... More

As I read in other reviews, when you pull up to this guesthouse the exterior isnt the best. However, inside is a different story! The guesthouse is situated on the first floor and consists of 6 rooms, shared shower rooms, bathrooms and kitchen. The room was lovely, spacious and clean. All shared areas were also spotless. Also, its very close... More
