6/10 Good

Cheap, clean and comfortable but very impersonal
If you just want a place to sleep this is fine. It’s cheap - especially in expensive Iceland - very clean and the rooms are warm and comfortable. However it’s very impersonal. There is no reception- you get an email with access code for front door and your room door. There’s a kitchen to prepare your own breakfast but nothing other than drinks are provided. Next time I would pay more and go elsewhere for a friendly welcome and breakfast.

Not the best but clean
Thought we would have real hotel comfort but the property was a bit old and not as scenic as review form led to believe but it was clean and comfortable. S:hower curtain encompassed the toilet. a bit awkward.
