The host was very welcoming and gave us great tips about where to eat. The room was clean and comfortable with an en suite toilet and sink. The kitchen facilities were very good. All in all a perfect place to stay and within walking distance of everything we needed in the town.

This charming guesthouse is perfectly located in town, very comfortable, clean, we felt very much at home, and our host was helpful with great suggestions and took great care of us. We could not have selected a better place!

A lot of reviews mention Halldór the owner, unfortunately he was nowhere to be found and in his stead were 2 unstable women, mother and daughter. They resorted to physical violence when me and my group (that had booked the whole house over a festival weekend) were making 'too much noise' around 11pm on a saturday night. We were watching...

We saw only the room in which we stayed one night. It very was very small and very basic, two single beds, and a small, old night stand. There was no closet, no reading lamps, no pictures on the walls, not even a waste basket, nothing else. The walls are paper thin and we had to listen to the guests... More

Six of us in my extended family stayed here for four nights in June. Two groups stayed downstairs in the rooms with private bathrooms. The rooms there were tiny, but it was handy to have a private toilet. Two of us stayed upstairs in a gigantic room, using the shared bathroom. All of the facilities were clean, but there is... More

We stayed in the middle of winter and the scenery was absolutely stunning. Halldor the owner was, from the initial telephone call onwards, very warm and accommodating. We arrived late in the night and were greeted with smiles and a good bed. We were the only ones staying in the guesthouse and fully enjoyed all its facilities, especially the bespoke,... More

We stayed here just 1 night while we were exploring the West Fjords. If i had to do it over, I would probably have liked to stay 2 nights (or even 3 if you were doing a full day trip somewhere and could use Isafjordur as your base) as the town is very charming, and is the only one of... More

We stayed one night at Litla Gistihusid and it was ok. Isafjordur is quite small, thus location is not that important. The room was clean and cozy, the kitchen a little bit old. It would have been good with one more shower or at least seperate shower and toilet to avoid lines in the morning. The host was helpful and... More

We stayed a few nights - was OK and fairly cheap, but was more like staying in a hostel than what I would consider a guesthouse (Maybe it's different in Iceland). We had our own twin room - clean, basic and very compact. Self catering kitchen was spacious and well equipped. Big downside was only one tiny bathroom for the... More

Isafjordur is the biggest town in the Westfjords, but there is an apparent paucity of choice in places to stay (and no hostel to provide budget alternatives). Based on the few reviews on TA, we stayed two nights at Litla - and it was OK. It is in a nice old part of town and we had a choice between... More
