    Cosy Guesthouse Close to Diamond Beach

    Clean and cosy guesthouse with shared bathroom and kitchen facilities. Kitchen was well-stocked and even though breakfast is not included, you get tea, coffee, juice and Skyr. Check-in was a breeze. The owners were not at home when we checked-in but our key was tagged with our name. Location was great and it was only a 10min drive from Diamond Beach and Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon.

    Overall it was a good place to stay. Everything was clean and comfortable, with free skyr in the kitchen to take. However, the place is very noisy. Any voice from anywhere in the hostel, or any noise coming from the kitchen travelled so well i could basically hear every word. If you are a light sleeper, I would not recommend this place as I had a very hard time getting any sleep. I would stay here again, with the addition of ear plugs or headphones.

    We had a great time at the guest house. The resident manager was very kind and accommodating. He even helped us with the problems with our rental car. The guest house is about 10 min drive away from the glacier lagoon. It is also near a fine restaurant that is attached to a museum. The mountain in front of the guest house is immense. And the behind the guest house you get to see a nice view of sunrise. We enjoyed the kitchen space of the guest house. We met fellow travellers and chatted about their stay in iceland. And we also enjoyed the complimentary coffee tea and skyr.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    Lovely renovated farmhouse/yogurthouse. Rooms lovely too. Shared bathroom in hall but we never had to wait and appreciated the in-room sink. Appreciated the free parking but be careful on the gravel. It gets very dark outside especially when cloudy, which is fine, but use a phone flashlight or a real one if walking around the buildings at night. Really loved the free skyyr (yogurt) and the dessert the proprietor baked for us. There was a restaurant nearby where we could eat. Be wary that there are few gas stations nearby so plan your gas stops accordingly. It was relatively close to the glacier tours, and that was also a huge benefit. Overally, really enjoyed our stay.

    Best place we stayed in Iceland! I was more than pleasantly surprised with this place. Staff friendliness was unmatched, room was comfortable, shared kitchen was perfect, the location was right in the middle of the activities that we were doing those days, and the view of the glacier was spectacular I was kicking myself that we didn't stay there longer. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

    This is a lovely guest house with a very welcoming host. Tea, coffee and homemade cake was provided which was lovely. Very clean, very warm. Good location if you’re driving to visit Jokulsarlon.
