I loved my stay and Lyngas guesthouse. We saw the northern lights from our bedroom window! Easily the most spacious hostel I've ever stayed at. Kept very clean with a modern Nordic design inside. The outside really doesn't look like much but that shouldn't matter. Kind staff, free hot chocolate tea and coffee, great wifi.

This place had a good vibe about it, there are a few rooms but when we stayed everyone must have also been driving around the island so there was no trouble sleeping and no noise after 11pm. Kitchen and communal area was great, the toilets and showers weren't too crowded in the morning. Great location and would recommend.

First, we did get lost trying to find the place. We only happened to find it by seeing the sign through the trees a few streets over. That could be our faulty GPS though, who knows. The room itself was lovely and clean. Everywhere was clean. However, the showers are located next to the living room/dinning area. Giving you the...

We arrived around 2000, after a long drive from Husavik. The owner arrived few minutes after we rang the door bell. Quick check in, kitchen is fully equipped, rooms are spacious and nicely decorated. Wifi signal is super! Breakfast is in a different hotel.

Upon arrival i had to ring the doorbell to be able to check-in. After a few minutes waiting the owner arrived by car, he lives nearby. Check-in went quickly and he showed me my single room. Very nice room, dark curtains and really clean. There are 2 bathrooms and 2 toilets and there is a kitchen you can use. What...

Lyngás is good solution to stay overnight or multiple days. Place is very clean with possibilites to cook. I stayed previous night before Lyngás in another place which I do not want to rate due to extremely bad service. Lyngás should improve internet connection but that is all I think.

Facilities are modern and clean. However the the employee I met was very unaccommodating and borderline rude. Close to everything but a bit pricey. No breakfast. Bathrooms were clean. No staff in the mornings or evenings.

We stayed here for one night as we were travelling around the Ring Road. We were given a large room which suited us perfectly. Essentially it is a hostel as you have to share a bathroom. We didn't have a particular problem with this as we knew this in advance. It was a great place for us the chill out,...

First and most importantly - Location is very convenient. The guesthouse is on the towns main road, across from a gas station and couple of minutes away from 2 other gas stations and few supermarkets. Secondly, very spacious and modernly designed common area which includes a nice small terrace for guests use. Clean and well equipt kitchen with a coffee...
