I really enjoyed my stay at Anna's place. The room was small, but exactly what I was looking for. I briefly saw Anna one morning and she offered really helpful suggestions for my upcoming trip around Iceland. The location is perfect, Hafnarfjordur is a tranquil neighbourhood/town just outside Reykjavik with everything you need. The bus from the airport drops you off at a hotel literally just down the road. Speaking of busses, I actually enjoyed the 30 minute bus ride into Reykjavik, which takes you right to the centre of the city, it's quite a scenic drive. I will definitely stay here again on my next visit to Reykjavik.
Stayed for one night in Anna's cozy and clean Airbnb and had a great experience. Location is perfect to walk down to the harbor and there was a hearty breakfast in the morning as well. Thanks Anna for your hospitality!
Anna's listing was very clean and organized. I enjoyed my stay there. I felt very independent and she had plenty of maps/other information available for her guests.
I would definitely recommend this place to future air Bnb users. Anna was helpful, accommodating and the place itself was very comfortable.
Annas Wohnung liegt im schönen Hafnarfjörđur. Ein Spaziergang lohnt sich! Die Schlüsselübergabe verlief ohne Probleme obwohl Anna ausser Haus war. Das Zimmer ist sehr klein, aber sauber und das Bett bequem. Frühstück (Toast, Müsli) ist inklusive, was ich grosszügig finde. Es gibt auch eine tolle Bäckerei gleich in der Nähe. Der Küchenboden und das Bad waren waren leider nicht ganz so sauber, das kann auch mit Annas Abwesenheit zusammenhängen. Trotzdem war es ein angenehmer Aufenthalt. Für den Preis absolut in Ordnung.
The house, the bed, the conditions and the sorroundings are OK.
I had two crutial problems:
- The facilities are not appropriate: there is only one bathroom and one toilette within the barthroom for the four rooms (minimum 7 people). It means in the morning you have to wait a long time to get "online". Its not acceptable. This place would not be eligible for tourists in Hungary.
- The breakfast was very poor: bread is in the deepfreezer, no butter, cheep jam, no coffee machine. Than its better not to include it in the price.
The shared bathroom is described in the listing of the room. There are maximum 7 people in the apartment at the same time. These 7 people come and go at different hours. This usually works out fine!
There are 3 ways to make coffee... one of them is a coffee machine ;-)
The breakfast items are complimentary. You can choose to be happy about them or bring your own items and keep them in the fridge.
But some people are just never happy....
Anna left really useful instructions on a dossier about the whereabouts of the hostel, directions to the center, etc... super useful to quickly get around, get internet, etc... Also the breakfast was very well arranged (also through written instructions).
The app to pay for the bus tickets was super useful!
It is about 30min from the center, but it pays off.
We felt very well taken care of :)

About the Host, Anna
We love the outdoors. Horseback riding and skiing are our favorite sports. Gardening, herb growing and cooking has become more of an hobby over the last few years.
