“Overpriced jail cell rooms with amateur service.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2012 via mobile

I'm an experienced backpacker and have been taking a month to go through all of Iceland, and by far this was the worst place I stayed. The dorm-style housing is so noisy you can hear it when the flies land -- and I am by NO means a light sleeper!! I probably wouldn't be complaining if the cost matched the services, but 4100 Isk a night for the piece of foam on a bunkbed is absolutely outrageous -- I don't care if it was in the middle of Hverfjall.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2011

We stayed for two nights in one of the guesthouses. The room was actually its own conex box with windows and very interesting shades. The shades blocked out the light and the bathroom was very small but clean. It was kind of a zoo when we first arrives as there are tents, campers, log cabins, a hostel like unit, and the conex boxes (which were referred to as the guesthouse), many people checking in. The people in front of us had been quoted one price but were charged much more when they got there. I was happy that I had printed out the email confirmation along with the price. Breakfast was provided but only for those staying in the guesthouse and was made up of the usual buffet items; cereal, juice, and the deli platter. Overall it was okay, we definitely heard the argument going on next door and thought that at $175 american it was a bit overpriced for a room with a bathroom and breakfast. Internet was available for a fee.

We stayed in the log cabins here, having good previous experience with them in Iceland - but there were so many holes in the cabin that the heat from the radiator never made it as far as the bed... we were snuffling for the rest of the trip. On the bright side, the employees were very friendly, and helpful when we locked ourselves out of the cabin. But do yourself a favour and stay in the guesthouse or hotel instead.
