The guesthouse was very clean, quiet, comfortable, with a very helpful person running it (daughter of the owners, over from abroad I believe). I could turn the heating up or down in my room - not many places have that! The location was right in the centre of the town and the locals were friendly. Easy hike to the far end of the island, 15 minutes to walk to the Eldheimar museum . The town is a very important fishing port, but even so Heimaey was not a noisy place in October.
Nothing, just wish the snow had stayed longer!
Rooms very clean and good size with good bathroom, tv and free wifi. Owner was really friendly. Breakfast was really good. Great location
Great location, comfortable, very helpful staff - everything was very good indeed.!
I travel a LOT and owners showed the most personal and friendly reception I have experienced throughout my travelling years Thanks - Petur G
That I couldnt stay longer :)
Location, excellent breakfast
We got to choose between rooms, all great: clean, spacious, comfortable, quiet. Located very close to the port.
I emailed them in advance because of special dietary requirements and got no reply, nor did they take them into account. Reception often unmanned, so you have to call them and wait 5 mins. We stayed 2 nights and our room wasn't cleaned after first night.
Staff Location Price
room a bit small for 4 people...but not an issue realy
The guesthouse is situated nearby the port. Staff was particularly friendly. Good breakfast with home made cakes and pancakes (delicious). Maybe one of the best place to stay on Westmann Ireland.
The staff was helpful. The owner's English was fair, but her daughter's was perfect. The location near the harbor was ideal.
The staff was very nice and helpful. The room was clean and the Hamar is situated right close to everything - restaurants, bars, cafés, the ferry etc. We can absolutetly recommend this place to everyone.
The holen spirit of the place is just fantastic
Stair...Iam a diver:-)
The room was great and it is located very close to the harbour.
Reception was often unmanned, so we had to call the receptionist to come when needed. We stayed 2 nights and room wasn't cleaned in that time.
Staff was super friendly and helpful. We arrived prior to check in time due to the ferry we took, and she went out of her way to allow us to check in early. Was also helpful with directions and suggestions. Very clean and comfortable.
Location; friendly staff; good and clean room
Very helpful staff - made my wifi connection work by geting me in contact with their IT servisse provider. I had hurt my knee clibing the local volcanoes and I needed ice to diminish the pain - their staff was extremely corteous by allowing me full access to their backdoor facilities where the ice mat was kept in a freezer to which I was allowed full access. Good to find good people - always
Simple facilities, excellent location in Westman islands. A thicker shade could help darkening the room a bit in long summer nights, but I had my eye mask so it didin't really matter much...
Very nice staff Flexibility - beds for my 2 small kids added to the room Very good breakfast Nice furnitures Good view from our room Coffee and tea in the room TV Very good for my family (3 adults and 2 kids) to spend time in when it was raining :-)
location, friendly owner
I really enjoied our stay at hostel Hamar. Heimaey is a beutiful place.
I think it is imortant for the staff to try to know about special food like for example gluten intolerance. It is a common disease in the northern countries.
Owners were very nice.
The staff were extremely freindly and helpful. They went out of their way to make us feel welcome. We had a family room with three beds. It was comfortable and immaculately clean.
Choix restreind au petit-déjeuner.
Near the harbour. Wifi was fast.
Breakfast was supposed to start at 7:30 (as written on notice) but it did not start until past 8:00 am. It was a little pricey for the facilities that was provided.
Needs a refresh (curtains, rugs, furniture).
Very friendly and helpful owners, lovely breakfast, good location and a nice spacious room with a private bathroom
Lack of guest kitchen (which I hoped to find as this is a guesthouse), however there was a kettle and tea and coffee provided in the room
