We stayed here for two nights. Because we booked rooms so late we had to change rooms. First night was down at the harbour; excellent rooms, kitchen, view in colourful, clean, hotelstandard rooms. Night two was up in the main house (the red one where the reseption is), also very nice, but thinner matrasses and smaller kitchen. Friendly staff and... More

My husband and I only got to stay at the guesthouse apartments for one night but we would have stayed longer. The view from our room was beautiful. We had a private bathroom. The woman working the reception area was a french girl who was SO helpful and energetic about helping us find interesting things to do.

We rented a room for two nights through this organization. Our building was right on the water -- it had about 5 apartments, and 8 rooms. The rooms all shared one big kitchen/dining area. Much to my pleasant surprise, the other tourists were outdoorsy, active, middle-aged tourists from all over Europe, Canada and the US. It was exceedingly clean, well... More

Very friendly welcome and good advice on where to eat in the town if you didn't want to prepare your own food. Usual facilities for a hostel, but in a good location in relation to the rest of the town.

This hostel is extremely pleasant. While it offers the same services and amenities as other youth hostels in Iceland (nice dorms, but also private rooms, full equipped kitchen, etc.), I was impressed and moved by the staff's helpfulness and friendliness. Since a dorm bed was only available for one night, I got a private room for the second night -... More

Rooms scattered all,over town. Beach unit nice but no view. Huge room. Far more than just a hostel. Great location. Great birding at the point. Staff very nice and helpful. We had a double room with full kitchen.

Average accomodation, nothing special. It includes everything what you need for preparing your own dinner and sleeping. Bathroom and kitchen was clean. Walls were thin but people were not loud. You need your own sleeping bags for sleeping.

This is a nice budget option when in the west of Iceland. The rooms are clean and comfortable, as are the shared bathrooms and the kitchen. However, the breakfast could be better and some of the other people who were staying in the other house said there weren't enough bathrooms for the amount of people staying there.

If you are visiting Grundarfjordur in the winter, as we did, you could not find a better place if you are looking for comfort, convenience, cleanliness and good value. The rooms are warm, the beds are comfortable, the bathroom is clean and the shower is great, there is plenty of storage space in the fridges, good clean cooking facilities all... More
