Clean, warm & nice place”
Our room was not located in the same building as the reception (1 km away), but it was fine as there were more parking space. Our room was in the 2nd floor & well-equipped. The shared kitchen is big so you can cook here. Our room has a great view - mountain view. The windows are big, so big we stayed in the room & watched the aurora (sweet!). Highly recommended!
I wish the kitchen & bathroom could be cleaner.”
we got the apartment number 3. Kirkjufell is right in front of the main entrance. comparing to all apartments we stayed during our golden circle, this apartment was our least favourite. dirty water cooker, musty towel.
An excellent hostel. Room was neat and clean with a lovely view. Private bathroom was basic but clean and shower was hot. Communal kitchen facility was well equipped. Definitely recommend this one
Cozy Room & Nearby Kirkjufell”
No hair dryer provided, and basin provided in kitchen only 1 so have to take turn to use with other traveler but location is good. We saw Aurora nearby Kirkjufell
Friendly and helpful receptionist, super market within walk distance but not in winter time. ”
Room are simple but Bed are comfortable, fully equipped kitchen and hv some basic cook staff like oil and salt
Spacious and comfy”
We booked an apartment for three and it was really nice and spacious with a living room to hang out and watch cable TV if you like (the latter seems pretty rare amongst all the places we stayed at). There is a restaurant Bjargarsteinn House of Food about 2 to 3 minutes away on food which had a nice ambience and good service. Enjoyed the fresh scallops and fish with a pint of local beer.
For those who are unable to get a reasonable place to stay at Stykkisholmur, this apartment offers a good choice for a group of 4.
nice view nice reception”
nice view, nice reception, nice kitchen but don't know how to enable heater, it seems that there is no heater,
Nice ocean view room, clean and comfortable”
Ensuite room with public kitchen facilities and freezer, walking distance to nearby restaurants, 5min drive to waterfalls area.
Great location, we can see Kirkjufell from our window. Nice, warm little room and fine kitchen facility. Great value for money .
great location, nice view easy to find room is decorated and tidy public kitchen is big and clean
Hostel with character”
Very cool and hip hostel. I like how it has a lot of history behind it. The place has tons of books and a very vintage interior which adds a lot of character during our stay. It also has a lot if add ons like. 1. A full kitchen where you can cook your own food 2. A resto so you dont have to go outside and actually enjoy the place more 3. Community room with musical instruments you can play (guitar, piano) 4. Yoga room. 5. Walls are a bit thin so don't be noisy in your room so you won't disturb other guests Overall a must place to visit and stay.
It was difficult to locate”
The pots and pans were not clean and it was difficult to locate the guesthouse and apartments.
will visit again. clean and cozy
Kitchen facilities is good and the room given is with the amazing view.
Decent place, free parking”
the apartments are scattered across a few houses around town. make sure you're driving or you may have to carry your bags a long way from the central reception. staff helpfully recommended nearby restaurant. big kitchen but could be cleaner (shared by many people). good value for money, free parking, leave shoes at ground floor
Around 5 minutes from everything you need around town
Took the one with private bathroom and it was like a hotel. The canteen was huge with many tables around and there was a complete kitchen there. Location was perfect because it was just next to water and the famous mountain. Very good for taking aurora photos. Nobody knows this hidden picturesque place.
Good location, clean and a good shared kitchen.
