          Can you book tours directly at the guesthouse or is there some where close by for tours ? I'm super excited to finally get to visit Iceland so I'm on research mode now :)

          There were no safes but the rooms do lock and you must have a key to enter the building.

          Our room had a private bathroom with no windows- when we were upgraded to the holiday apartment it was the same. Great place to stay. 😃
