Check in and check out was a breeze. Area had a nice view, and the property was clean. However, when I booked this property, it said breakfast was included but upon check-in, I was told it was 10 euros per adult. Also, it’s disappointing that for the price, the beds look old, the floor was not smooth so it really hurt our feet. It would have been also nice if they had a microwave and a fridge, which some of the properties we’ve stayed at in Iceland had. The good thing was the washroom was pretty big and clean. Otherwise, it was an okay stay.

Great room and property and easy access to Hofn. The check in time is limited and though I messaged the hotel about arrival time, I never received a response which made us have to change our plans for the day.

The people are friendly and make breakfast in the morning for a fee. But there is no glass or anything around the shower. Also the floor is not graded so the water splashes all over the entire bathroom and you have to mop the floor so the next person can go in. The beds also have about the same support and quality as a kids mattress. Alright for a cheap room?
