For the money this was the best value of our trip..The room was clean, beds comfortable and quiet. Check in was easy and the restaurant was right across the street..I wish i had a meal there! The shared bathroom was not a issue. It was a big bathroom with a nice shower!

The guest house is right by Route 1, so it's very noisy. People kept coming in and out and cooked in the common kitchen late, so it was impossible to sleep for a while. But the owners made the guest house really well, modern and welcoming.

Stayed here because of the two falls and the black sand beach. Clean and looks recently renovated. Two suggestions: please provide some paper towels and more hooks/hangers inside room 4.

I liked the convenience to the road, to a place to eat, and the fact that it was close to a lot of the things we wanted to do (Skogafoss, etc). Very quiet and clean. Had everything we needed for the night there. No complaints!
