    Ok place to stay

    This place is just ok. After sleeping in our car for 8 nights and showering at camp sites we decided to splurge on an actual bed under a roof. I think I would have preferred the car and campsites. The floors were dirty, the walls are super thin as I was kept up all night by a loud person snoring on the other side of the wall and the showers were some of the worst I had experienced in Iceland. Wifi was only available in the common areas not in bedrooms.Additionally when we arrived it was after check-in hours and they listed the wrong room number for us to go to so we sorta just had to find an empty room to crash in assuming we were the last to arrive.

    It was an awesome place with a basketball court as well as a gym and other very good facilities. The view outside the window was beautiful.

    everything is great, the staff was very friendly and kind. however, the water was too hot and too cold when I was taking a shower.

  • 8.0.Very good

    This property was located conveniently in the Golden Circle. It was clean and well-kept but is on the older side. The rooms were cozy and the kitchen has most things you would need but given the amount of guests, I wish they had more pots and pans and supplies. Check in and check out was smooth despite arriving late.
