We usually don't stay at a guesthouse, but we chose this place based on the price and reviews because we found other hotel options to be limited in Akureyri. We were very glad we did. The guesthouse itself is very cute, and much thought has been put into its decor. Rooms are clean, and comfortable enough, albeit small. The only inconvenience we knew about ahead of time was that the bathrooms were shared, but there seemed to be plenty as we never had to wait to take a shower or use the toilets. The bathrooms themselves are equipped with hair dryers and even Q-tips. In the dining room, they offer free coffee and tea all day. Breakfast is fairly basic, but with some nice touches like homemade jams. Dinner (which you can get for an extra charge) was a nice surprise. The food was solid, and they even bake their own bread. Finally, as an added bonus, there is a fairly sizable hot tub with a great view.
This establishment clearly cares a lot about its guests. They seem to have thought of everything. We had a wonderful time.
Tips: The guesthouse is part of a network of Icelandic farm experiences (similar to an agritourismo in Italy), and they offer horseback riding tours, which I highly recommend.
