I had a pleasant visit at the Old Post Office. The views offered in some rooms (towards the ocean and Kirkjufell), and the warm welcome, made the stay very appreciable. I would perhaps describe this as more of a "luxury hostel" rather than a hotel, and this is all fine with me. Shared bathroom and common kitchen adds to the...

Very interesting place. Old as the name said. Very small rooms with shared bathroom but overall very clean. Heated. Good wifi. Big kitchen with all fournitures and two big tables. No breakfast but we cooked dinner and breakfast

A gem of an inn on the north shore of the Snaefellsnes Peninsula. It is situated on the main drive in Grundarfjordur and within walking distance to many really good restaurants as well as short driving distance to quite a few attractions. Although we only stayed here one night, it was perfect for us! If you're up in this area,...

It was OK. The location suited us for our itinerary. The beds were comfortable and the room warm. The rooms to the rear had a nice sea view. The building is a little tired and although there is a communal kitchen area no breakfast is available. If on a tight budget it is OK

I stayed mostly in hotels during my week long trip in Iceland, my stay at this hostel was a highlight. The staff was kind, common area spacious, bathrooms private, and the view spectacular. I couldn't ask for more.

Nice place for the most part, comfy beds - small room - nice bright clean kitchen. Good Views of water and mountains. Price was below most hotels around the area. There is a great restaurant down by the water - 4 blocks away - and the town grocery market is only two or so blocks away.

Wouldn't stay here again. One night was enough. Budget utilitarian guest house in ugly building. No breakfast provided but cooking facilities for the guests. When checking in the lady on the desk said she may or may not see us in the morning as she had trouble getting up!! Felt she was happy enough to take our money though, but...

Two nights here were good if unspectacular. The views of the mountain from the rooms were great, the whole landscape and the wider peninsula is spectacular. We received a great briefing on the area from the lady who runs the place, the kitchen is a nice area for meeting other guests and has all the basics. The rooms are basic...

This is a great guesthouse, the rooms were very big, nice comfortable beds and a great powerful shower. There is also a large fully equipped kitchen that guest have full use of for cooking breakfast/supper etc. Everything was spotlessly clean I would definaley stay here again if we were to return to the area

Clean, cute and good value. Close to gas station and supermarket, yet the town is dark enough for decent aurora viewing. The only thing that bothered me was the shared bathroom downstairs which didn't have any cover of the window. We saw kids looking through the window.
