Stayed in a very large room. Bathroom was also very large. All very clean. Host very friendly. Made use of the kitchen to prepare our dinner the night we stayed. Well equipped kitchen. Breakfast not included with our stay. Good location for visiting the south / Golden Circle.

A lovely welcome to Iceland. We arrived late after travelling from the airport via the Blue Lagoon. It was pouring rain and there was a howling wind. It was lovely to hear a welcoming voice over the intercom and we were buzzed in with no complications. The room was very spacious and we were able to hang our wet cloths to dry. As we were in late and off early to travel eastwards, we didn't really take full advantage of the facilities but I am more than happy to recommend a stay here.

Excellent and exceptional hospitality. Highly recommend . Nice and clean rooms. Hot tub. Near city center. Walking distance and quiet neighborhood . Friendly Environment. Good breakfast. Fully equipped kitchen

Spacious rooms, very clean, well equipped kitchen (nice system with the refrigerator), clean WC and bathroom, good beds. You have a small sink in your own room. Safe place, good parking. We stayed here for two days. You can create your own restaurant with the other guests. The kitchen area is nice! The area around the guesthouse is bit boring. Supermarkets and several restaurants just a block away.

Stayed here for one night with my son, could not fault the place. Nice bright airy rooms, comfortable beds, a handy little kitchen area, really friendly and helpful staff, plus it's only a 5 or 10 minute walk to the shops and eateries. Definitely recommended.

We first went to the other guesthouse but then the owner was kind enough to personally come pick us up. Then we were checked into our room which was nice & spacious. The bathroom were shared but were in immaculate condition. It rather felt like home. The host is super awesome. She even did the laundry for us & when I went to pay, she said it was on the house. The guesthouse offers a fully equipped kitchen. This place combines a hotel & AirBnB. The host go above & beyond to make you feel comfortable. We stayed in quite a few places in Iceland but this is the best of all. Highly recommended!

This guesthouse was in a nice family neighborhood away from the main street yet not very far away from stores. The room was large and very clean, although the bathroom was very small and there was no soap for when we took our shower. Parking was limited so we had to park on the street. There is a nice hot tub to soak in, greenhouse to sit in and a kitchen to use if you want to cook your food here. You can pay for breakfast if you want.

Nice and clean guesthouse on a good spot to explore the golden circle. You can use the kitchen is you like to cook dinner of have breakfast. Hot tub outside and friendly staff. Rooms are standard, but more than OK for this price. Would stay here again!

We had a very warm welcoming upon arrival. The place was simple and nice, the bathroom is clean against that we were sharing with other people. We had all the information explained and printed in our room which we needed. Unfortuntaly we could not try the hot tub but people were using it. The kitchen was nice and simple, basic things provided and clean as well. The price was really worth to stay here, very good, central location! The decoration around the house was nice too!

Close to restaurants, grocery store, bank. Great amenities like the hot tub in the evening, clean and spacious rooms, good light. Well located for exploring the south coast of Iceland. The owner was very gracious and informative and took the time to talk to us as we left about our stay. The common kitchen and washrooms/showers were always clean and well appointed. I would return.
