I spent two weeks in Iceland and stayed in six different guest houses/hotels. I've also stayed in other hotels/pensions in various western European and Scandinavian locations and this one is, by far, the smallest ever. As far as I'm concerned, this room (we had a room with a private bath - not an apartment or a shared room in the...

We actually stayed at the "Grundarfjordur Guesthouse & Apartments" which is the other component of this entity and which is located separately from the youth hostel. The Guesthouse is located on the waterfront in a converted warehouse with excellent views of Kirkjufell. The accommodations are basic but clean with a large communal kitchen and the place appears to have opened...

Our room in the main building had benefited from the work of a keen interior designer with very bold colours and modern fittings. Very cheerful on a grey day I should think. The bathrooms had queues in the morning and the kitchen got pretty busy at times. That said, the hostel is ideally placed for an exploration of the stunning...

We stayed in one of the apartments down by the harbour. The rooms were spacious and the furniture comfortable. The soft furnishings in our room were very bright oranges and clashed rather with the green net curtains! The shower is very good but a proper cubicle would be better than the curtains currently used. WiFi keeps dropping out, but gives...

The room was clean and nice and the beds comfortable. Unfortunately there were only two toilets (in one of them was the only shower) and the kitchen only had one stove, very limited space and not nearly enough seats if the building is fully booked.

This place was by far the strangest place we stayed during a week in Iceland. It’s essentially a main hostel, which is back in a residential house in town with a dorm room kind of thing in what feels like a converted warehouse down by the water in the industrial part of town. It feels weird but the view out...

We had a nice apartment near the water with a closed 1 bedroom and bunk beds in the living room. Spacious place compared to other places we stayed while in Iceland. Nice town, great views. There's a good restaurant just next to the apartment complex building.

We had a small but comfortable en suite room in the building down by the harbour. It's right on the water so has great views of Kirkjufell mountain and right next to a really nice restaurant (which was handy as the weather was awful when we were there). The rooms are good for the price, and the kitchen facilities are...

The apartments are located away from the reception which is located on Hildarvegur. Check in was quick and efficient. The apartments have very good parking. However, you do have to carry your luggage up the stairs. The building is modern and rooms are clean with good facilities. There is a communal kitchen area with plenty of seating. The bathroom was...

Our stay at the hostel in Grundarfjordur was perfect. We stayed at the building down near the harbor. The private room was upstairs. We had a beautiful room with a view of the mountains. Everything was super comfortable and clean. The kitchen was very nice, too. It was a little difficult to find because we were given a satellite view...
