Not recommended at all, please find a better place even outside of hofn if necessary. The building looks OK but the rooms are small, old and smelly. Bathrooms are not clean, there is an outside staircase so if you stay in the second floor you can't get from inside, overall didn't like this place at all.

The building looks nice outside and it is by the harbour. We arrive at 13 pm to check in and they told us to come back at 15 pm... But we see from the outside that rooms were ready. We came back at 16 pm and after ring two times at the boy... He went downstairs at 16.20 pm (20... More

We stayed one night in a 3 bedroom apartment - which was downstairs in the house behind the actual guesthouse. We were very comfortable and since we had brought our own things for breakfast, we enjoyed the use of their coffee machine. The kitchen is well equipped - twice over, it seems! It was a bit of a throw back... More

We stayed here for one night during a roadtrip in Iceland. I thought it was ok for one nights sleep. Bed ok, so was the the breakfast (but you have to pay extra for the breakfast). Clean. Small room. Our room was on the top floor in the second building (behind the reception building) and the people (guests) in the... More

We took a road trip counter clockwise around Iceland and booked our nights based on drive time. Hofn was in the right place, but we booked the wrong stay. The management was the least welcoming and the accommodation the oldest and most tired, yet this was the ,oat expensive night of a close to two week trip. If I had... More

Quiet guesthouse right on the harbour, booked a double twin room, was clean and a decent size, nice touch was the towels and private sink. Definitely not worth what they charge but most accommodations in Iceland in August will be expensive- it's part of the territory. Breakfast is offered for an extra charge (equivalent of $20 Canadian), did not opt... More

We felt as though this property was misrepresented in its descriptions and very overpriced. We were asked for our payment the minute we walked through the door, we did not even receive a hello. We were then taken to a property behind the property pictured in the pictures. It offered shared kitchen and tv room. We were given a very... More

The apartment was disappointing, the bathroom was old with very few old ruined furnitures and even bad smelling Bath tube was scratched with grudge, the shower was not working Compared to all other places we stayed in Iceland we payed 2 time the average price for a disappointing apartment. I'd suggest to avoid to stay in Hofn in general

Can't beat the views of the harbor. Easy parking and food, grocery store, pool are all close by. However, the rooms are extremely small. There is one WC and one shower for the whole building. The kitchen is pretty poorly equipped (fridge but no freezer) and the oven didn't even work. When we tried using the stove the breaker repeatedly... More
