Great place to stay if traveling the Ring Road. The only downside was how the closest food option was 30 minutes away. So I would definitely recommend bringing your own food when staying there. Other than that it was a great place to spend the night. The bed was super comfy and the lounge area is awesome!

Nice views and surroundings, common dining room is with panorama windows. We stayed at the cottage during a very bad weather - the cottage had heating and was pleasantly warm. For the cottage the drawback is shower in separate building (but cottage is close, so at least in summer not very big deal). Kitchen things, especially fryings pans, are worn, strange that hostel is not changing them.
