Very cute guesthouse in a small town). Pleasant stuff. Small rooms, but very clean, comfortable beds. There kitchen for guests. And good bathrooms! We had a luck when we couldn't hitchhike a car and we found this guesthouse with just 1 available room! It was incredible!

I thought the lady was a bit abrupt when she asked me if I wanted to see the menu "again". Actually she turned out to be quite the opposite as she explained that she's just turned 30 and thinks she has started her menopause early (it was so funny!!). The salmon with salad on flatbread was really quite nice (my...

The place is warm and cozy, the people are friendly and it is clean! The guest house is right next to a super market - I probably wouldn't stay there for days on end because it is quite small but for what we wanted it was perfect.

This guesthouse is perfect for a short stay. The rooms and bathrooms are already new and the breakfast service is perfect. You can also have lunch and dinner and they are great. The staff is pretty good. Recommended.

Nice place - good coffee and sweets. Came back later for lunch of hamburger and smoked lamb on flatbread. Nice people also. But 3 beers for $45!? I know Iceland is expensive but sometimes it feels like being taken advantage of....

We were fortunate enough to pick Eldsto Art Cafe as our stopping point for dinner after a long rainy drive. We has been visiting the east coast of Iceland and decided to stop for dinner. What a treat, excellent food, wonderful waitress, all the tableware is hand made by the owners. If you are passing through Hvolsvöllur, definitely stop for...
