Pros: This place had only been open about six weeks when we stayed. Everything was immaculately clean and comfortable. Beds are all twins but we just pushed them together. Rooms are small but they have a sink and small table and chairs wifi available me everywhere. A little kitchen so you can bring things to make sandwiches, coffee, etc. very nice breakfast available in the morning. Shared showers provide soap. Towels and linens provided, which is rare, it seems. Very nice staff. Free access to the local pool and discount on a local restaurant were bonuses for us but unfortunately we didn't use them. I would consider it an upscale hostel.
Cons: Entrance not well marked -- it's at the back of the building and up stairs. There is only an Icelandic flag to mark it !

Pros: The Hotel Budir is located off the main road around the Snaefellsnes Peninsula amid an elf filled lava field, with views of a beautiful beach, a historic black church, and the mountains. As wonderful as the location is, the service and food are even better! We were treated as if we were the only guests, even though the hotel was full, with total attention of the staff at all times. The hotel has its own well stocked bar and several lounges, a gourmet dining room, and a menu to make anyone happy. Try the langoustine appetizer and the Blue Ling Fish entree. When we come back to Iceland, we will stay there again! PS check out the shop behind the hotel as well...
Pros: Incredible location, beautiful and comfortable hotel. The service was first rate.
