4/5 Good

Quiet stay at hostel in Grundarfjordur.
The hostel was located near the center of Grundarfjordur. Instructions on accessing keys to the entrance and room was sent by email a few days before arrival. Our room was on the first floor and was clean and quiet. There were four separate rooms on our floor at each corner and one and half bathrooms. The occupants of the other rooms did not disturb others and made our stay pleasant. Only problem was figuring out the bathroom shower controls and operation as it had a hand spray and 3 side sprays. The kitchen was supplied with all the necessary items for cooking and storing food. We would stay at this hostel again since it was well organized and had a limit on occupants on each floor, allowing bathroom access and limiting noise.
