Easy access, good local walking and nostalgia in seeing places I had not seen for 44 years.
The good contact between the owner family of the guesthouse and their guests, the help, the nearness to the town and the quiet of the place. The room door couldn´t be closed from outside (leaving the room. There was no washing-basin in the room.
Very friendly owner - Arny, who had stories to tell about the volcanic eruption in 1973, which is the most important thing that's ever happened there! Well-positioned guesthouse, with basic cooking facilities. If you go there, take Euros cash, as they keep their value better than the Icelandic Kroner. Bunk-beds to sleep in, so not the most romantic!
