  • Simple but functional. Would definitely recommend to travelers on a budget!

  • A perfect fit for our needs- a simple crash pad for our two day layover. We took the FlyBus to the Viking Hotel and it was an easy walk up to the apt on a drizzly morning. Our host let us drop our bags off a bit early, and we had a nice visit and very early departure. Lodging was as advertised throughout and entirely feasible- a great deal for the price, region and airport access.

  • Greta and Gunnar were so friendly and very accommodating! We arrived earlier than expected, asked lots of questions, and they went out of their way to make us comfortable. The room is as described - very cozy - but it works well. The space is clean and has just about everything you could want. There is a stove, pots and pans, dishes and silverware, sink, iron, a closet with hangers, coffee maker, electric tea kettle, toaster, and a refrigerator (with a few breakfast items even). The bathroom is shared but it wasn't a problem. The water is hot and there is even a washer for your clothes. If you are looking for something high-end then this is not the place, but if you are looking for something affordable, comfortable, and close to Reykjavik or the airport, then I would recommend it.

    Thank you Greta and Gunnar!

  • une très bonne base pour attaquer un tour d'Islande, très fonctionnelle, facile à trouver et dans un coin sympa près de Reykjavik (très accessible aussi) (de bons resto à Hanarfjordur). Le confort est minimal mais le rapport qualité prix très bon, le studio permet aussi de cuisiner soi même... et il n'y a que deux chambres, donc pas de problème de douche/toilette.

  • I stayed 1 week at Hofdahus house. It was perfect! .

  • Nous avons été bien accueillis et avons trouvé un studio très petit mais propre et bien équipé pour faire la cuisine. La salle de bain commune n'est pas terrible, mais on peut prendre une douche sans problème. Il faut vraiment une voiture pour aller jusque là.

  • We stayed here for 5 days, and had a great time. We could always reach Greta either in person or by phone, and she was very helpful with giving us information. The house was located in a nice and quiet neighbourhood, close to supermarkets and a short walk to the harbor. The room had kitchen facilities and a comfy sofa bed. I enjoyed my stay there a lot and can recommend it!

  • These hosts were simply legendary. They made our stay in Iceland absolutely spectacular. There is not much more they could have done because we got so much more out of this trip than we bargained for. Their location, although just outside of Reykjavik, was still in an outstanding spot with breathtaking scenery at every turn. Will most definitely be staying with them here or any of their other listings the next time we are in Iceland.

    Response from Hofdahus:

    Thank you so much. You are such a warm and kind person, I am very glad that I met you both.

  • Great room and facilities to use if you wish. We only stayed one night, our last night, on our way home and it was perfect for our needs, i.e. close to Blue Lagoon, Reyjkavik and the airport. They keysafe code had changed during our travelling but our hosts were close by to help us quickly and communication overall was great. The location was quiet and bed compfy, we had a good nights sleep. Some bread, milk, cereals and a few other bits were available which was great, we only used the milk but having that to hand was a lifesaver as we'd just run out of ours!!! We'd stay again, many thanks.

  • Gunnar's place was cozy and quiet. The fridge was stocked with fruit, cereal, milk, bread, butter, and jam when we arrived which was a nice touch. We had some trouble connecting to the internet and so could not use the wifi. The shared bathroom was a bit crowded and messy from what looks like on-going projects. I'd stay here again.
