  • 10.0.Exceptional

    Very functional room with sink in the room. Easy check-in process (they accommodated my late check-in without any issue). Staff was really nice, offered to answer any questions; offered me clean towels after my first night. Common kitchen with access to new large fridge to store food, and everything to cook a meal. Very convenient location, 3-min walking distance to supermarket, visitor center, activity center and hiking routes. The walls are thin so you can hear people in the corridor but I was so tired from hiking that I fell asleep immediately and slept very well. Ate breakfast on the little picnic table in the garden, and dried my bathing suit towel on the drying racks outside. Not the most charming building but overall very happy with my stay.

  • 2.0.Poor

    worst experience of our entire trip

    This was by far the worst experience of our extended trip. The beds were uncomfortable. The shower was moldy. The building was extremely loud with paper thin walls. There were kitchens and bathrooms at both ends, so there was no break in the noise. It was noisy until 1100pm and started again with the pounding of footsteps and slamming doors at 0616am. No good restaurants close to speak of. Front desk was of limited help and availability. We didn’t even wait for breakfast in the morning. I wish we would have pushed on a little farther and stayed in Húsavík for two nights instead of one.

    Excellent rapport qualité-prix, situé tout près du lac, des commerces, resto et bains de Myvatn. Petit déjeuner copieux et délicieux avec crêpes maisons. Chambre propre, lit confortable avec une couette douillette. Cuisine et salle de bain partagées avec seulement une autre chambre.

  • 8.0.Very Good

    Very expensive but to be expected in Iceland. Wonderful location in Lake Myvatn. Main downside was we had to wait for breakfast as not enough seats and all the fresh fruit gone by this point.

    Great location to all the Myvatn area. Nice shared kitchen. Water smells like sulfur but what do you expect, they live on an active geothermal area. :)
