About this listing

My place is close to parks, art and culture, Snæfellsjökull glacier, Snæfellsjökull national park, The Freezer Hostel, Theatre and Culture Center. You’ll love my place because of the coziness, the ambience. My place is good for families (with kids) and big groups.

The space

This apartment used to be the town's very own bookstore and is decorated in the style of words and books. Inside there are a lot of books to read and some cosy chairs with reading lamps to sit down and relax with a good book. The house is one of the oldest in the town and has a lot of history. In the summer there is coffeehouse right on the other side of the street and the view of the glacier is astounding from the house. Also a short walk to the beach where you might see some seals if you are lucky

Guest access

Our guests have the place all to themselves :)

Interaction with guests

I live on the top floor of this house so I´m very close by if there is anything you need. I will also leave my phonenumber so that I can be reached. Most of the time I am at the Freezer Hostel preparing cultural events that happen there but there will always be someone you can reach.

Other things to note

The Bookstore is a part of The Freezer Hostel and Culture Centre. The Freezer hosts regular events such as theatre, dance, circus, cinema and concerts as well as some festivals of culture and art. When you stay in the bookstore we suggest you don´t miss out on coming to the freezer to meet people, experience something unique and make new and fun memories :)

This is a very adorable home! My family enjoyed our stay and we loved the sunsets at night by the ocean.

Nice place to be for 3 or 4 people. Beds are confortable. The only problem we found was the impossibility to lock the door, but is not a big problem beacause the town is 100% safe.

This is a good place to stay for a group or a family. It's clean and basic expectations are met. Bring your own coffee if you need that in the AM as things open late around the apartment. Also make sure The Freezer is very specific with you about where the house is and *which door* at the house to open. It's the one along the side. We walked in on a whole family going about their business because the home is a duplex. Otherwise it was what we expected.

Nice appartment in the small Hellissandur village, well located and nicely decorated. Appartment is small yet very well organised, can sleep 6 people, only 3 chairs, would be great to add a few foldable chairs.

Great location right by the entrance to Snaefellsjokull. A bit of a shame there's no window facing the mountains. Small but fine because you'll want to spend all your time in the park rather than indoors.

The place is located ideally to discover Snaefellsnes, very quiet in a small village by the sea. We enjoyed to have a seperate living room with a comfortable sofa and armchair, books and games and liked the decoration. It's also a good thing to have a washing mashine with dryer (although we didn't need it).

I am a friendly social hostel in Rif, Iceland. I like culture and people and making new friends. I also like providing entertainment such as theatre shows, live music and other artsy stuff.

My style of hosting is laid back and informal. I like guests to feel like they´re at home and amongst friends.

Can´t live without my phone, art, culture, interesting conversations, music and people
