This guesthouse is owned and run by a delightful young couple, Fanney and Sindri, ably assisted by a couple of other staff. I cannot speak highly enough of Fanney and Sindri, who went out of their way to help us and other guests. Fanney stopped cooking her own dinner in order to spend ages on the phone sorting out a tour for me, and in the end I think (I couldn't follow what she was saying) I suspect she pulled some strings and got us onto a tour that wasn't actually going to run otherwise.
I also watched as Sindri took ages assisting another party of guests in planning their next day's travel; and also saw how quickly they offered to drive yet another couple to the bus station at 7:30 the following morning, not the easiest of times for any guesthouse owner.
Apart from that, the rooms were extremely comfortable, with a well-appointed, shared bathroom. Communal facilities welcoming, with kettle for tea and coffee right there in the lounge area.
And as for the location - right over the road from the current Tripadvisor No 1 & 2 restaurants (and we ate in one of them, superb!!) and on the other side is Hofn's pretty little harbour - perfect for a stroll after one of those enormous langoustine dinners!
One of the very best - if not THE best - guesthouse we stayed in Iceland. Go there if you can!
