Great location, Tiny Room
The guesthouse was in a very good location. We walked to Pakkhouse for dinner and to Netto for groceries. The room was very small with very little room for luggage. We shared a bathroom with a lot of people. The guesthouse was clean.

Clean and updated, but sound carries
A friend and I stayed here for a single night during our trip around Iceland. The accommodations were very nice, everything was clean, and even though we didn't use the kitchenette, it appeared to have all of the essentials (plates, silverware, electric kettle, etc.). The only real negative to the experience was with a loud group of other guests, not the property itself. Sounds echoes very easily and a conversation held in the kitchen area felt like it was being held inside the bedroom. This was especially annoying when a loud group of people decided cooking at 9pm was appropriate. Overall, the accommodations are great, but a disrespectful group can ruin the experience. Nice area around the house too!

House on the Hill was a great stay. The rooms are clean, the kitchen had everything we needed, and the bathroom, albeit shared, were phenomenal (heated floors). Perfect for anyone traveling in / through Höfn
