This is one of the worst guesthouse/B&B I have ever been to. First of all, there was insufficient hot water supply. The free wifi is not working, at least for my room. The door and desk are damaged. The bed is uncomfy. The entire place looks creepy. Booking.com has partially refunded me the fee due to my unpleasant experience. The...

We stayed here for just a night and I was really pleased with everything. I wasn't sure what to expect initially but the room and bathroom were super clean and perfect. the beds as well were quite comfy. this guesthouse was also really close to the Jokulsarlon glacier so this was just perfect for us. would highly recommend!

We stayed in the Reynivellir Guesthouse which is just down the road by a minute or two from Gerdi Guesthouse. It was such a cute and comfortable place and we wished we could have stayed there at least one more night! The kitchen is large and well equipped! We had a great time!

I stayed in the block just off the main building, still shored up with plywood and a couple of broken windows. The rooms were spartan rather than stylishly minimalist. It felt like a school or cub scout bunk house. The water was nearly hot but smelt of cabbages which was unfortunate. Breakfast was of the 'how cheap can we make...

We stayed in the main building, which was convenient for dinner and breakfast (both very good). The rooms were ok, the shower has low water pressure (as I can read in other reviews), but that’s not much of a problem to me, so all fine!

Me and my friend stay here only 1 night. there's only two choices in that area. ok breakfast (not included). The room is simple and clean with bathroom. We stayed in Gerdi guesthouse for glacier hiking next day morning, although Gerdi is the nearest however still need to take 1hr to go there. The stuff is good and helpful.

My two friends and I stayed in a triple guesthouse here during our trip to Iceland. The room was spacious and had everything we needed; it was very clean and well equipped. The shower room was nice though there wasn't much pressure in the water. The location is very convenient between Hof and Hofn and was really the only place...

Everything in Iceland is expensive but I thought this was particularly pricey -- I assumed because there is not much else around it. The inside of the room is very comfortable, modern bathroom. Sufficient parking. Nice grounds. Breakfast and dinner offered. Restaurant was very expensive as well.

We stayed in the long building that faces the east, and it was fantastic. The location can't be beat (super close to the Glacier Lagoon, and not far from the adorable town of Hofn). Our room was newer, and had one of the best showers of our trip. Also, one of the best wifi speeds we encountered on the island....

It's about 12 mins drive from the glacier, very good location. We stayed in the new building which is behind the main building. The room does not have kettle. They do offer free tea and coffee in the main building. The two building is close to each other but when it's chilling, extremely windy and raining at night, it's a...

“The main building was a good place to stay. Try to avoid the end rooms as we had a sloped ceiling.”

“A room in the main building, rather than a chalet, is advised.”
  • Not a great photo I'm afraid, but the Northern Lights were visible from immediately outside Gerd
