“Fantastic guesthouse in Hofn harbour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2012

My partner and I stayed in Guesthouse Dyngja for 1 night on our road trip around Iceland. Newly renovated and opened earlier this year, Guesthouse Dyngja is absolutely fabulous and I'd have no hesitation recommeding you to stay here. We received a very warm and friendly welcome from the young Icelandic owners and they were happy to recommend restaurants and activities to do whilst in the area. The guesthouse has 5 rooms and all are very nicely decorated - the bed was very comfortable. There are 2 shared bathrooms (which seems to be the norm for guesthouses in Iceland) - both are clean and spacious. There is a gorgeous guest lounge with board games, books and free coffee. They also have a very retro record player and an awesome selection of records of which the guests can use. The buffet breakfast is the best we had in Iceland with coffee/tea, OJ/apple juices, freshly baked bread, cheese, ham, local jams, fresh fruits etc. There are 2 very good restaurants just across the road from the guesthouse - both serving locally caught fish and langostine which is the speciality of the area. If you're planning to stay in Hofn don't look anywhere else!
