It’s a very interesting and different experience! The room was in a former school, but was absolutely perfect. Clean and tidy! The price was more than acceptable! Definitely will stop there again once im in that side of Iceland!

4/10 Fair

Demands improvements
The place is adapted, what could be wonderful. However, important things are missing. First, rooms don't have keys. Second, there is no properly cleaning. Room and kitchen had dead flyes on windows and tables. The whole place has a stick dirt floor. Third, there was no information for us upon arrival and it took a while to find out which "adapted" room was ours. I really wish the guys are successful, but changes are needed.
