I loved everything about this fantastic guesthouse! The owners are the friendliest, available for interesting chats and preparing lovely waffle breakfast. The guesthouse is new and very well designed (in contrast to many repurposed buildings that turn into guest houses in Iceland). Our room was spacious and very comfortable (quality linens and pillows), soundproofed and with a beautiful private bathroom. Guests have access to a fully equipped kitchen, which we really appreciated. I enjoyed a lovely stroll on the road just out of Loa’s with a variety of birds and Icelandic horses. The value is also excellent! Would definitely stay there again if coming back to Iceland!

I wish we could have stayed longer than just one night, Loa's nest is such a lovely place! Sparkling clean , tasteful and cozy rooms! We were offered free pancakes and coffee in the morning and the owner promised to look into vegan pancake recipes for next time ;-)! Super friendly staff! Highly recommended!

Stayed with friends for one night before a walk across Fimmvörðuháls. Clean rooms with shared kitchen, witth great view towards Eyjafjallajökull and Vestmannaeyjar. Excellent location for sightseeing trips in the surrounding region of Iceland.

thanks to Loa's family for the warm welcoming we had, and for all the chat and tips she gave us. we can't keep the secret that the waffle for breakfast made our day better! Next time I'll stay longer in this middle of nowhere nest where it's possible to see Northern lights.
