Húsið

About Húsið

Our lovely house, Húsið, was built in 1929; it has a rich heritage and varied history. This beautiful traditional style  building, originally built as a schoolhouse and then used as a community meeting place, has ably stood the test of time. Today Húsid still looks very beautiful, located in the glorious setting of Fljótshlíð valley and against the backdrop of the three peaked mountain, Thrihirningur and the famous Eyjafjallajökull glacier.

For the last 25 years of  Husid’s history it has become known as Húsid Guesthouse. As well as being ideal for independent travellers, as singles or in small parties, for approaching 20 years now, Húsið has also been working with school groups. Coming from various countries, we can provide all of their accommodation needs at the heart of south coast Iceland.

Reviews

Great School Trip!

I was here in March with my school for 2 nights, it was very welcoming and cosy and we all loved the homemade food. Double helpings all round! We also loved the fluffy family dog. Thank you Jana for being such a friendly and kind host.

Excellent school stay

The accommodation was comfortable and clean, the showers were hot and each house had a social area where the students could relax in the evenings. Mealtimes were relaxed but organised and the food was traditional and substantial which was needed in the chilly weather. The location is beautiful and the family are friendly and helpful. I look forward to visiting again.

College Trip

I took 22 A-level students to Iceland recently and for 2 of those days Husid was our base. The hostel owners made the students feel very welcome. The food was excellent; traditional roast lamb and homemade Icelandic Skyr yogurt one night and lasagne the other. The rooms were warm and cozy and super clean.

Rural, scenic and very welcoming.

The Husid Guesthouse has a rural location ideally situated for the scenic South Coast and Golden Circle. Jana and her family made our school party to feel very welcome and we really enjoyed our stay. The students liked the family dog. The Husid was warm and clean and food was plentiful. The students did not mind sharing bathrooms and complimented how comfortable the beds were. 
As the party leader Jana could not be more welcoming or helpful with information and requests during our visit. I was really blown away by how friendly and welcoming our hosts were from the minute we arrived. We loved our stay and are hoping to return shortly.

A fantastic family run hotel

We stayed here in March 2019. The guest house was perfect, great food, a lovely atmosphere, clean rooms and fantastic hosts. We hope to return next year! Very quiet and great location to visit the south coast and the golden circle.

Great stay

Went on a school trip to Iceland and we stayed in this guest house. The hostest yana was lovly and her family were all very welcoming and friendly, the food there was of much higher standers than what I was excepting and was very nice. The rooms are small and cosy but good quality beds and are supiled with bedding but would recommend bring a blow up pillow as the pillows supiled weren’t the best but overall the rooms were very good and they have good vacitlitys but they are communal showers and toilets as expected but we’re hygieneic and good quality.
All round great place to stay with very good facilities and a lovly hostest would definitely recommend

School visit February 2019

Amazing – we could not have asked for better. We were welcomed into Jana’s home by herself and her family and made extremely comfortable. Food was superb, just what we needed, and nothing was too much trouble. Lots of spaces for the children to congregate in the evenings

A fantastic stay - a warm welcome awaits you!

Could not have been more accommodating and welcoming to our school group of 29 students and 3 staff. As well as feeding us with delicious food and as much as we could eat, we were treated to an insight into Icelandic culture. The students particularly enjoyed the song “a to ö of Iceland” as well as our host spotting the Northern Lights and getting everyone out to see them. A perfect stay – thank you.

Excellent accommodation

Very nice family, great accommodation, excellent breakfast. The owner is from the Czech Republic, very kind lady, she gives good advice on traveling, about Iceland. I like to return to this place thanks to the great environment.

Excellent accomodations and Service at Guest House Husid

Great service and rooms. The host family is very friendly and outgoing. The meals were excellent. We had a large group which required some flexible meal times which they handled with out question. Highly recommended if you are in that part of Iceland!

Location

Húsid Guesthouse is located in glorious Fljotshlid Valley, in south central Iceland. It is an easy and most scenic 90 minute drive from Reykjavík, turning off the “1” Ring Road for the last 10 minutes of the journey to reach Húsid.

Three icecaps loom over the Flótshlíd valley, including the now famous Eyjafjallajökull, the volcano that “stopped the world” for a number of days in 2010.

Situated in the recently designated Katla Geopark, Guesthouse Húsid is certainly located in a most dynamic location. Many scenic gems are to be found within easy striking distance. Waterfalls abound, large and small (including Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss). The Atlantic Coast is only a short distance away and includes the Westmann Islands, a great day out well worthy of considering using the short ferry ride. Iceland’s glaciers too can be seen close up with the opportunity to take a glacier hike for the more adventurous on Sólhemajökull.

With Guesthouse Húsid being located in the countryside, it offers dark winter nights with no light pollution, ideal for viewing the stars and the Northern Lights when conditions are right. Often the Northern Lights stream directly overhead Guesthouse Húsid.

Combining the stunning location with our cosy Guesthouse Húsid accommodation – which can include home cooked, traditional meals – allows our guests a deliciously tantalising taste of the very real, most true Iceland.
