    Very organized nice place with an easy self check-in. Clean and well decorated house. Breakfast included with cereals, bread and spreads and fruits which were very appreciated. It is also very well located, near the Keflavik airport and near grocery stores and gas station.

    5/5 Excellent

    Dorm style housing, but had all the basic amenities. We used the oven in the kitchen to bake a pizza and the heated towel rack was nice as was the black out curtain.
