“Comfortable, nice guesthouse”
Reviewed 28 July 2013

We stayed one night here. The beds were comfortable, and unlike other guesthouses throughout Iceland, it was quiet at night, with no talking or banging of doors. And we were right off the kitchen. It was expensive, but we did get the last room, so I guess they can get the price. The breakfast was good. The Hofn pool was great, and we enjoyed our time in this village.

Lovely guesthouse close to the harbour and a great lobster restaurant. The two single beds were very comforatble. The room, with a private bathroom, was spotless. The breakfast consisted of a large variet of foods and was very filling. The owner was very nice and very helpful. It is quite expensive by Canadian standards, but so much less than the hotels in Hofn.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the dining room as two rooms open up directly into the dining room which co...

We stayed at Nyibaer as a stop over on the ring road while we did some activities around Skaftafell.

Getting to it was very easy and we liked that the it was a easy, simple and clean place to stay for 2 nights.

It is owner operated and the couple who ran it had some great suggestions for the area. They provided some fresh breakfast including some icelandic standards (e.g., fresh made yogurt, waffles). It was also in a perfect location to work to some of the great restaurants in Hofn.
