My husband and I arrived at Heimay intending to only stay one night on the island and leave the next day. Unfortunately, a giant storm blew in overnight and we ended up being stranded for another night. We showed up at Ruth's door again and she graciously let us stay with her at the last minute - obviously we were...

We stayed in room 3 which was comfortable for two people. The host is wonderful, and was able to provide suggestions about what to do before and during our visit. We wouldn't have found/explored a number of key areas without her knowledge and insight.

We stayed one night here in June 2014. Room: Our room was very spacious with three twin beds and lots of floor room. The beds were comfortable and everything was clean- only issue we had was we were expecting a double bed or ability to push the twin beds together and you couldn't in this room. Not a huge issue...

Hostel is run by Ruth, nice person and a great nature lover. She in fact runs two guesthouses on the main street Heidarvegur, leading from the harbour. The first one Hreydrid on the corner with Faxastígur street and Hrafnabjörg in Hásteinsvegur, both sharing the garden. We lived in Hrafnabjörg and spent two nights there. Nice and clean, comfortably equipped kitchen...

I stayed here for there nights this fall. Had a wonderful time exploring the island (easy to check everything out by walking/hiking!). Hreidid is just a few blocks from the main street with grocery, restaurants, etc and short walk to the amazing city pool with hot tubs, steamroom. Knowledgeable and friendly owner. A great price for the accommodations, especially in...

Much of the new Icelandic accommodation is in simple modern Ikea style so it was good to come across an old fashioned place with its own character. Owner Ruth is very helpful and access to decent cooking facilities is a real bonus if you're trying to save a few Krona on restaurant meals. Not only do I recommend this guesthouse...

If u need basic rooms with good kitchen facilities for self-catering, this is the place to stay. Toilets and showers are shared by fellow guests. Those with interest in all things puffin and nature will find much good advice and information from the hostess Ruth who is very helpful, and passionate about wildlife. The guesthouse dog is a darling too!

We initially tried to get a room at the HI hostel, but the whole place was a building site (with builders looking through the windows)! This place was much cheaper, very glad we ended here instead. The rooms were spacious and clean, with a nice little shared kitchen. There is a puffin / sea-bird theme to the place which makes...

We phoned ahead and didn't have any trouble getting a room on a Thursday night in May. The guesthouse was on the main street just up from the ferry so we had no trouble walking there since we left the truck on the mainland. The rooms were Puffin themed, with puffins stenciled on the tiles, curtains, and kitchen cabinets. Quirky...
