I would definitively recommend this fantastic place (even though it is one of those great adresses you feel like keeping just for yourself;). The guesthouse is very close to Jökulsarlon which allows several trips (just 12 km) to admire the lagoon at different lights! I arrived late, after kitchen closing time and still got served a huge meal of lamb with cabbage, roasted potatoes and salad, which really gave me the feeling I had finally arrived in the heart of Iceland! (the sheeps are two steps away:)
The staff and, especially Þorbjörg is adorable and truly kind.
There is a little souvenir corner at affordable prices in the entrance. The room, clean and tidy, was very nice and spacious. It had a sink, towels and the view over the sea! I couldn't have dreamt of a better place to experience the South coast. I will definitively come back next year!

The owner and one worker stayed 2 hours late for our arrival. We were the only guests the night we were there, and we had gotten a flat tire that had to be replaced on our way to the guesthouse. They graciously prepared us dinner and shared in conversation with us as well. The accommodations were some of the nicest we experienced in Iceland, as well. Spend the money for the rooms with attached bathrooms--they are extremely nice with flat screen TV's and views of the ocean.

Room Tip: Spring for the room with attached bath--they are fantastic! All buildings seemed nice, however.

Would recommend this guest house for overnight trips to Jokuslarlom. We loved the fact that the buildings were spread out and enjoyed a short evening walk to the restaurant. The food in the restaurant was excellent I would definatly recommend the lamb.We stayed in a family room which was big enough for all 4 of us with a shared bathroom.The only negative was the rest of the guesthouse was filled with a party of Spanish who took over the kitchen and lounge area. - luckily we had booked bed and breakfast as there was no chance of us getting near the kitchen in the morning. The breakfast was great with lots of differnt choices. Excellent value for money

Would defintely recommend Guesthouse Hali, especially for trips to Jokuslarlom. After a long drive from the capital we found the hotel easily. There seems to be a choice of rooms with or without en-suites in 2 seprate buildings. It is also the only restaurant in the local area, but luckily the food was great, defintely recomend the Lamb!.

I'm so glad I stayed here - wish I'd stayed 2 nights, not 1. I had a single room which was big enough and very nicely done - probably the nicest room I had staying in Iceland. The kitchen and sitting area were huge and there was free quick WiFi. I ate dinner in the restaurant up at the museum which was delicious. Would definitely recommend this place - it's sooo close to Jokulsarlon and so nice that there's no reason not to! And it was really cheap too. Would suggest staying here for exploring Skaftafell and Svinafell too, especially if you're a photographer and want to capture sunset, sunrise and northern lights (if you're very lucky!) at Jokulsarlon.

This was a great little guesthouse. The room was small but clean and included a sink. The shared bathroom was spacious and there was a second shower, and the kitchen and social space available should you have booked the entire section of the guesthouse was spacious and well-equipped.

The meal was great, and they were more than willing to cater for vegetarians (though expect tinned vegetables). The meat options were great, and it was all local - caught/reared on the farm that the guesthouse sits on in fact!

The location of the guesthouse is it's star quality; sandwiched between cliffs and the sea, and not far from Jokulsarlon, there was no light pollution at all. This meant that when we were lucky enough to get some aurora activity, the sky was clear of other light and we saw the display perfectly. It was spectacular to see the lights coming in streaks across the sky from behind the cliffs, spreading over the sky above us - perfect!

Well worth a stay if you can.
