Very nice and clean hotel. Good breakfast

Good 6.0
Not in Hofn
Look at the map before you book here; I did not and, BTW, despite the address it is many km from Hofn ( I was told “I slanders would understand what the address means“). IDYLLIC setting, VERY clean, LOVELY breakfast, however they charge as much as a hotel does, but want you to strip the beds and put the laundry in the laundry basket. I would have no problems doing that if the price was a bit less. Perhaps I was just grumpy about having to backtrack from Hofn where we had gone for dinner?

Loved the stay and the area!
This hostel is apparently brand new and is spotlessly clean, almost sterile-feeling. That's not a bad thing. Breakfast is typical European: skyr with toppings, hardboiled eggs, lunchmeats/cheese, cereal, and wonderful homemade bread. Wi-fi is strong. We were late arriving so they just left our key for us, no problem. The only thing to make this place perfect would be a common area open 24 hrs. The breakfast room entirely closes after breakfast. Access to someplace to sit (other than our room) and a microwave would help. Our family members don't always sleep at the same times and it's either stare at the ceiling or go sit in the car. ;) The area is lovely and quiet, surrounded by mountains, fog, sheep...quintessential Iceland.
