“Great Hostel/Farm”
Reviewed June 16, 2012

We had a great time here. When we arrived at Husey the weather was pretty bad so we ended up getting the whole hostel to ourselves. A definite plus. The road out there is pretty long and in gravel but that's the price you pay to get to the end of the earth.

Oh yeah, ride the horses, it's totally worth it!

Stayed June 2012, traveled as a couple

Reviewed June 5, 2007

26th May 2007: minus two centigrades a fierce wind blowing and it was starting to snow. This was our first impression of Husey after slowly travelling 30 km along a gravel road to reach it.
Husey is a farm and we had planned having a horse riding tour there but were kinda worried. reassurance came from the young girl that showed us our room: we have no problems and the horses neither... so that was it, meeting point at 4pm at the barn, and we were happy we braved the weather.
The horses are sweet tempered and warm, and the place is lovely: a two-storied blue house in the middle of nowhere between two rivers. Squeaking wooden floors, a small blue walled bedroom, so cosy.
We were lucky to be there out of season, we were the only guests (I can just imagine how less romantic and comfy the place is when it's chock full).
There's a big well equipped kitchen, several clean bathrooms (the owner has just added an extension to the house with more rooms and bathroom which although so new doesn't have the same feel of the other parts of the house).
The general feel we had of the place was the incarnation of the "shabby chic" kind of style that we personally love.
The owner is also so nice chatting a little with us, showing us around the barn (we gave milk with a bottle to a one day old ewe!).
Extra bonus was the great breakfast (an icelandic feast with homemade rubharb marmalade and smoked trout) and the opportunity to buy fresh eggs from the farm (since the nearest town is so far you have to self cater for lunch/dinner when you're there).

  • Liked — farm location, room and breakfast !
  • Disliked — the fierce wind blowing (not their fault though!)
