I stayed there for just a night during my one-week self-driving tour around Iceland.
Considering all acommodations I got during my trip, this was the simplest one. I opted for a hut with sharing facilities, which can be ideal for family, once, by one side there's a small room with single bed and a bunk bed while the other there's a room with a double bed. Right in the middle there's a basic-equipped bathroom.
As noted in previous reviews, shower temperature was not that ideal. If you're frozen, this may not be your better chance.
Wifi is only available in the main building. Be advised that 3G signal in that region is weak or inexistent.
They offer meals at their restaurant, although the menu is very limited. Breakfast is simple, as usual for Iceland's standard.
Staff is courteous and friendly.
Location is good and very scenic where you can literally hear the silence.
And just a valuable hint: when you're going away, turn left immediately after the exit, instead of heading to Route 1. Drive about 2km on the gravel road (not that hard - you get better deal with a 4WD but do not be afraid to face it with a 2WD) up to the bridge crossing a river. Then park your car and walk for 5 minutes to the impressive and calendar-like scenery of Fjaðrárgljúfur. It worths!
