How soon will I be back?
When I arrived, I checked myself in and got acquainted. Like most hostels and guesthouses in Iceland, shoes came off upon entering. My roof was cozy and mostly clean. Not sterile, but clean enough not to be gross. The only room issue was a giant mosquito I found. My two favorite things were 1) the smoked salmon at the breakfast buffet on the freshly baked bread and 2) the building's history. You can look at old pics throughout town and it's still there. So cool! I'll try to be back soon.
