    Poor WC and shower utilities. Very cheap breakfast, almost empty table, even though you have to pay extra.

    Nice garden in front of house. Reasonable WiFi.

    The breakfast seems expensive for what is served, but it is in line with Island prices.

    It's a nice and clean place close to the city centre.

    Wonderful location. Breakfast was very basic, but sufficient and with a nice view. It was possible to leave the suitcase at the guesthouse after check-out. Very nice host! I had a two-bed-room for my own, even if i only booked a bed in a dormitory

    - furnishings a bit bare - 3 families sharing a kitchen - kitchen garbage not emptied daily

    - location - very friendly owner, helps you arrange outings - breakfast - near pool

    Slightly outside of the town center. Be prepared for a 15-20 min walk from the harbor if carrying heavy luggage

    Proximity to the swimming pool Cozy rooms

    The hostess was so nice to us - introduced us to all the Best places to visit at vestmanna and made the visit very special by telling her story about the vulcanic eruption in 1973.

    Wonderful local hosts. Served home-fished and smoked salmon with breakfast and other icelandic specialties. Lovely location. Reasonable price for Iceland

    Well...for 35 Eur (cheapest bed) one could at least expect pillow and blanket.

    Hostel owner was nice, dorm room quite cozy and light, fantastic view through the window and good location.
