    There was no one when I checked in, quite scary as it was too quite. But we had great time using the kitchen facility as there was no other guest.

    They gave us room 3 which had the best view in the whole building, we had clear views of kirkjafell. Smaller than what they originally have us but they asked if we wanted the best view and it didn't disappoint! Very clean room with a nice shower. Would highly recommend!

    The property was fine, very clean, with full kitchen, which we liked. The only issue was the water at the kitchen sink and in the shower. It was either scalding or freezing, very difficult to adjust, a razor thin turn of the handle and you almost burned yourself. Everything else was excellent.

    Good location, beautiful views, and best shower in Iceland! The rooms are smaller, but adequate for 2 people. This property shines with a communal kitchen, eating area, and patio. Very friendly and helpful staff. We enjoyed the restaurant and kaffi/library nearby. Will visit again!

    quaint and homey, rooms were average size. I thought the thermostat controlled air conditioning, it controlled the heater! don't place it on 5 or 6. it was set at 1, you can open the window partially. our host was welcoming. gave us tips on the trip around the park, restaruants to eat, and sights to see. not to be missed. they also had a refrigerator for everyone to use. drop box for the key for early departure. great stay!

    Great location and great value for the price. The staff person was very helpful, and offered some travel tips in the local area. My room had an amazing view Kirkjufell and the bay. Would stay again.
