We only stayed one night but were delighted. The rooms and common areas were impeccably clean. The beds surprisingly comfortable. They have lockers to keep valuables safe under the beds. The staff was helpful. The neighborhood was very quiet. The kitchen was well equipped. Overall, very very satisfied and will recommend to everyone looking to stay somewhere nice between Reykjavik...

The town is small and depressing, but the lodging was great. The owner was friendly and helpful upon our arrival. The apartment has a full kitchen, smart tv with Netflix, and loads of space. It was a good and reasonably priced place to sleep for two nights while we explored nearby Geysir, Gulfoss, and Vestmannaeyjar.

Great choice for staying on the southwest coast-- reasonably priced in season, extremely clean, great bathroom amenities. Not many options for food in Erarybakki, but Selfoss is close by. Fast wifi, great blackout curtains.

We stayed in one of the apartments. Spacious, modern, well equipped and very clean. Monica received us and filled us in on the town's goings on, so that we knew to attend the midsummer bonfire on the beach. Great fun with really friendly people.

The one bedroom apt we stayed had a good view of the mountain. Very spacious and cozy. They have a washer no dryer though :(. But we were able to have our clothes dried by the main office. Linens are not as clean as I like it. It could be just me since I'm very specific with it. Other than...

“The 2nd floor apartment on the right side has both ocean and mountain views. If it's in the budget, the apartments are the best option.”
