This was our final accommodation in Iceland before returning to Reykjavik, having spent 2 weeks touring Iceland. It was reasonably priced. We enjoyed the quiet cabin and a chance to unwind. A problem was that we did not have enough cooking pots to prepare our meal on the two ring stove. I raised this with the receptionist. She advised that... More

We spent à very Nice stay in hella. The cottage is well equipped. The location is next to a river with a nice landscape. Unfortunately We were to late to go to the restaurant. But We had a warm welcome. We hope coming again ;-)

This was the first accomondation in iceland, ans we drove straight from the airport to hella. The cottage was actually one of the newest ( there were also the oldies, i think the cheaper ones). I slept very well there and loved to do some yoga at the morning in the riverside. Only minus id say, would be the fact... More

Staying at this small and cozy cabin in March 2015 for Aurora photographing and this is the best location. The cabin was very nice and warm although the size is quite small but the small kitchenette has complete supplies. Small table with two chairs facing the river. A small terrace which I can sit during the freezing waiting for the... More

We went there for a short weekend trip. The cottage seems to be small but its very cozy and serves its purpose very well. Though there are not much lights outside, can you beautifully see the northern lights. The cottages are close to a river which makes it a very idyllic location. The cottage was equiped with a small stove,... More

I stayed here for two nights. The cabins are warm, quiet and clean. However they are very small. The bathroom and kitchenettes are tiny with not much space in the rest of the room particularly if you are sharing. The paths to the cabins are not well lit so be sure to bring a torch for the evenings. This is... More

This was our last stay during our visit of 2 weeks in Iceland. Cabin was primitive, needed lots of repairs. Kitchen equipment far from complete (not even spoons etc for 2 persons). The cabin was also very small. The positive thing is that there is a restaurant close by.

We stayed one night at the campground (so, we slept in a tent and NOT in a hut) and it was totally fine. They have a few rows of shrubs that did a good job blocking the wind, a common kitchen area so you can cook w/o using your stove fuel, bathrooms with running water (even hot showers), and a... More

We rented one of the cottages with private bathroom and it was big and clean (that's what matters the most for us). Don't expect too much, but in the end it's a good place at a reasonable price. I have no idea how the shared bathroom are, but the cottages are ok. The location is very nice: just in front... More
