This guesthouse is a hidden gem. The room was fantastic and the beds were very comfortable. The hostess, Tracy, was an absolute champion. She will go out of her way to help and assist any concerns you have. She is also a wealth of info about Iceland and I really enjoyed talking to her. The guesthouse has amazing views of the coastal mountains and is very quiet and secluded. Highly recommended as a place to stay.

An ok-ok place but at an amazing location. 6 mins drive to Plane Wreck parking. And right at the foot of an amazing mountain. Its definitely seen better days, but you get what you pay for.

You had to remove your shoes. Quite inconvenient. Having slippers available would be great. No place to hang things. Uncomfortable bed. HOT comforter. Way too thick. Not enough light. No tissues. Etc
