It was very close to the water and a few good restaurants and had free parking
We didn’t realize we would be sharing a bathroom and shower, let alone with 4 other rooms of at least 2 people per room. Also I was told on arrival that I still needed to pay but I had received a payment confirmation via email when I paid in full upon booking. Also it said breakfast would be included but it wasn’t; there was just a shared kitchen for people to make their own things with their own food they bought themselves. Also the reception was confusing, you had to go upstairs but then there wasn’t anyone there so you had to call and it was inconvenient.
College Dorm Room
-beds were comfortable -sink was inside our room (not available for all rooms) -breakfast was an option -there was a storm that entire day, and the owner advised us to stay inside the place without further charges. -as long as you expect a college dorm room-like facility, you'll be pleased with it. Clean, warm, and simple. -easy to find (for travelers who do not have a GPS)
-we woke up in the middle of the night because the storm blew several plastic chairs against our walls and windows until they shattered into pieces. -owner is slightly difficult to get in touch with (even while inside the guesthouse). He lives upstairs. -breakfast was supposedly at 730 downstairs, but the room did not open until 8 and everyone in the building was wondering who to ask and where to go for 30 minutes.
With a stay at Guesthouse Hvammur in Hofn, you'll be within a 5-minute walk of Vatnajokull and Huldusteinn. The front desk is staffed during limited hours. Free self parking is available onsite.
