    Nice building with big shared kitchen area

    There were three nice, well-equipped kitchens. Place can be crowded, making it a challenge to find an open kitchen or bathroom. Nearest grocery store is about 25 km away, so if you plan to cook, buy food before you arrive. Facility can be hard to find, but its location is good, about halfway between Skaftafell and Kirkjubaejarklaustur. Place is clean and well-maintained.

    Staying at Hvoll

    We spent 1 night here. It was a well equipped hostel and the views were stunning from here. It was well located for the glacier. The room was small but comfortable. It is pricey for what you get. There is a gravel road to get to the hostel.

    Nice property - It is a basic hostel-like set up with shared facilities. There were two shared showers and two additional WCs on the second floor. The facility did have laundry which was nice. Overall, I would recommend to anybody looking for basic accommodation.

    Very nice little guesthouse

    Just one night spent at Hvoll but Marta welcomed us allowing for a late check in and shared some very nice chats with us. The place is nice, room a little small and room for luggage is a bit limited but everything was how described.

    Overall I didn't like to stay in "comunna". You even cannot use the house between 10am and 4pm even if you are staying for a number of days. You have to leave

    Quiet rooms with convenient clean kitchen facilities. You can store your food in the refrigerator. Nearby restaurant is expensive.

    Location was a little hard to find, but the amenities were very nice. It was cool to have so many showers and bathrooms available - laundry is available as well. Our host was extremely friendly. Would surely recommend this place to others.

    Its a hostel

    Its a hostel not guesthouse, hotels.com should fix it. Take groceries if you olan on staying. Clean kitchens and reatrooms. Beds not very comfy. Rooms were warm. And breakfast given only in summers as per host.
