눉Very noisy place - too many students shouting all the time, cooking in the kitchen all night long, seating with their laptops at the hall. That's why the kitcher is always dirty, smelly and full of people - the smell and noise goes straight to the rooms.
눇Close to glacier lagoon Jokulsarlon - we visited it both in the afternoon and in the morning next day. That's also the reason for overpricing I guess. Hot beverages available in the main building free of charge. Spacious rooms, enough parking places.

눉We had earlier requested for a room facing the lake, but when we arrived they did not have any room directly facing the lake. So, we had to lean out of our window to be able to see the lake from our room. Besides this, the room was not very well lit and there was no shampoo or soap in the bathroom. Luckily, we had our own toiletries! Also there were not sufficient lighting fixtures in the room. As a result, it was quite dark through the day and night in the room.
눇We arrived at this guesthouse late in the evening at 7 pm-ish and they had no qualms about allowing us to do a late check-in. Thankfully, they had dinner available (and even a vegetarian option for me), since it was impossible to go out in the rainy, wet and cold weather. Our room was in a house/guesthouse adjacent to the main house. The guesthouse is at the edge of a huge lake and would afford good views of the northern lights on clear nights. Breakfast was good and sufficient. We did not know this earlier, but there is a kitchen area in the common lounge area, with basic salt, sugar, etc. supplies and some utensils too, if you want to cook your own food.
