Could be recycling of bottles, cans, plastic bags, food waste that could be composted - but not a lot of space in the kitchen for such. Could be a "Free" bin in the fridge and on the counter so those leaving can put unwanted foods there. - or even ask for labels to be used by those staying so the owner can do a clean-out of foods that are not labelled every 3 or 4 days? Wonderful to have the pool and hot tub so close. Great chats with locals and other travellers.

auberge n'ayant pas de charme particulier mais elle remplit très bien ca fonction pour dormir. Idéal pour une étape pour partir vers le sud, la piscine de Arnes à 100m (oui oui), et la station service avec hamburger à 200m.Malheursement, petite cuisine et petite salle à manger.

Very bad mattress and one shower for fifteen people is not ideally.

Bien placée à environ 2h du Landmannalaugar et fonctionnelle. Un bémol concernant la déco : vieillotte et très hétéroclite. Et les chambres sont vraiment petites pour 3.
