Arrived when reception was scheduled to be open however, no one was there and had to call for them to come which took 20 minutes. First room we were put in had a heater unit which had a short circuited power plug and was freezing cold but were able to move to another room with a working unit. Kitchen was large and spacious but needs basics likes butter and oil for cooking.

I enjoyed my stay here a lot. We had a great time on Hofn. The people in this small village were very friendly. The hostel itself was perfect for us, when we arrived it took the guy some time to come, but right after that I was able to cook in a large clean kitchen. The beds were comfortable, showers were very clean. Overall its just a perfect place to stay for the glaciers. Took some awesome hikes here and it was easy for us to continue our trip after.
