“Good Place!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2014

The gusthouse is located on the harbour, not far from the city center.
The staff was very friendly and helpful: we arrived in the evening and they arrived in a matter of time and also suggested us some good spot to eat.
Good points: the breakfast was very very very good, with homemade products and the best Skyr I had in Iceland. Both the room and the bathroom were very clean.
Bad points: we booked a double room with shared bathroom (which as I said before were extremely clean), but the room itself was very small (with 2 twin beds). I'm used to travel and find small rooms, but this one was particularly small: it had the 2 beds and 1 chair. And that was it.
Except from this little particular everything was very good.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2014

We arrived to Höfn a bit early, and had to wait for a few hours to check in. We spent some time at the restaurant Pakkhus. I can really recommend that restaurant, good food!
When it was time to check in we went to the guesthouse and called the owner. He came down to the guesthouse in 2 min. We got a room on the 2nd floor. We shared one bathroom with 3 other rooms, which could be a bit much sometimes. Especially because the room next to ours had 4 family members. Thankfully there were two more bathrooms on the 1st floor.
The guesthouse has no kitchen facilities. Breakfast is included and it was really good! Many restaurants close to the guesthouse.
Free wifi is included as well, which is always appreciated. Staff was really nice and helped out a lot.
The room included two single beds and a small table. The beds were comfortable. We felt that it wasn’t enough AC outlets in the rooms and had to share.
Way too expensive though! 140 euro for a tiny room with shared bathroom.

Right off the harbor and right next door to a great restaurant. The host was extremely accommodating and the breakfast was quite good. Everything was very clean, good bathroom, comfortable beds. We were happy with it.

We had a warm welcome from the owner. The house is situated at a good spot in town, no sea view though. Bath room facilities are a bit small, there is a big dining room. Breakfast is served from the owner and the cook. It is rich and includes local specialities. Coffee and cookies are available during the day.

The welcome and information about the locality given by the owner was second to none. The bedroom was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was adequate. We had a great time and would go back. The recommended restaurant was also terrific.

We booked this guesthouse just before our arrival in Hofn. The owner arrived 2 minits after we rang the bell. The welcome was excellent. Our room was well appointed and so clean. The breakfast was very good (particularly the waffles!). Price low. Suggested!

Our initial impressions of this guesthouse were not great but we ended up really enjoying the night we stayed here.
The rooms and decor are not new and nothing is cutting edge but it's all functional and comfortable.
Nice shower, good beds. Good location near the harbour.
What gives this guesthouse a 4-star rating was the breakfast. Apart from the usual fare (which was all very good) they had little jars of skyr which, when combined with the waffles and the home-made strawberry jam, were sensational.
So it turned out to be a nice place to stay and I would happily recommend it.
