Great location on harbour, staff friendly. I stayed in a single room Comfortable stay But is a hostel not more Two showers for whole guest house of say 25men (ladies seperate). Bfast was ok, below average for cost. Fish and chips out back in harbour were lovely Also recommend the Vikings sushi tour which runs twice a day from harbour, few nice islands and I ate so many scallops fresh from sea

Terrific place. Off-season so I was one of two guests. I was met to be given access, very friendly and efficient. Rooms are simple however perfectly fine. The area upstairs is 70's style and very well done. The common area and kitchen downstairs are both great. I had a twin room which was well priced . Bathrooms all good. In summary I thought it had character and was perfectly located and spotlessly clean.

A small cozy cafe that we went to twice during our weekend visit in Stykkishólmur. First was for drinks and the second time for their tomato and carrot soup. Lovely relaxed atmosphere, nice background music and excellent friendly service. The soup was very good and had some tang. Highly recommended

The hostel is well located next to the harbour. The staff is extremely kind, but the services are quite downsized. The kitcken is very basic, towels are for paying. The dorms have few plugs and some were not working. Breakfast is available for 1.800 ISK

I spend one night in route to the north-west fjords and it was very comfortable to be there, the staff is very helpful and friendly. The room was very clean and warm. The kitchen is fully equipped. There are very good restaurants to just two steps.

It was a perfect location for a day stop during our trip to West Fjords. Simple rooms but warm and cosy style just suited our purpose. Very good if you are not looking for high-end accommodation. Nice hosts. Local food can be found just around the corner.

I only stayed one night here in a room for only two people, but the room was great. The kitchen was fully equipped so we cooked the next day's food there. The place got hectic in the morning with many people sharing one bathroom on the top floor, but that was still fine. Overall a great stay!

Simple place to stay, but with good price/quality. Beds were fine, so was the kitchen. Only 1 toilet on the top floor was a little bit minimalistic, had to go down twice during the stay over a small staircase.

Cozy youth hostel catering for family. We had a room for 4 with family share. Stay was good but price seems very high to me for such hotel (same price as 4x hotel in Asia ) ! Breakfast included but choice is very very limited (sandwich or cake), no bread/butter, fruits.. ok for one night,
