    Would not wish to stay more than one night

    The room was in the basement and thou had a window, smelled damp and stale, so did the bed and sheets. Our hair and clothes actually became stinky after a night in the bed. The bathroom door was really difficult to close and open without making a loud noise and much effort. Breakfast was decent. Lady owner was easy-going. The price we paid for a room like that was quite atrocious.

    The hostess was the best of our two weeks in Iceland, and we had the best night's sleep there too. She was helpful and funny and seemed to enjoy spending time chatting with us. The building is old, but well maintained, nevertheless there were a couple of quirks, like how the room lock worked. Breakfast was good.

    Nice little guest house in a great location! Owner was very friendly and so were the other guests. There is so much to see in the area, and Vik is a great little town.

    This was a very lovely guesthouse. I booked only a few days before arriving so I had some issues with arriving and I was not able to access my room. But besides that everything was very nice, it's in a good location close to food. I booked the room with the private bathroom and my room was very clean. They provide towels and a hair dried which was convenient. The host is very nice would highly recommend a stay here, and will certainly be coming back on my next trip to Vik!!! :)

    The staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast included was nice and you can use the kitchen, which is great for those headed off to the next location. They even provided me with small paper sandwich bags which was super helpful for my road trip! The house is in a great location for sight seeing nearby--close to Black Sand Beach and lots of amazing waterfalls.

    Habitación amplia y buen desayuno

    La habitación era amplia y tenía una pila, pero el baño era compartido, ya lo sabíamos. No tuvimos problema con el baño compartido. La cama blanda como en el resto de Islandia, es algo cultural. La señora que tenía que hacer el check in se retrasó y nos juntamos allí 5 parejas esperando en la puerta.
