Reviewed 18 September 2017 via mobile

Tiny room with too many beds jammed into it; no space even to use luggage.
They call themselves a guesthouse, but it isn't even a hostel.
Many people staying, very noisy halls & thin walls.
Only one WiFi router for way too many people; I got hacked.
Communal showers only separated by curtains; NO privacy.
All sinks were tiny; nowhere to fill a water bottle.
Bed linens poor quality, rough, & pilled.
Window opened onto a heavily traveled deck; not secure, unable to leave window open for ventilation.
Pretty darn expensive.
On-site restaurant didn't open until lunch; no breakfast or coffee available.

Stayed: September 2017, travelled with friends

First off, I did not book the place so cannot comment on the price. We stayed one night, the accommodation did the basics. A bed, a shower and that was it. No kitchen facilities and there is the restaurant was next door but we didn't try it. Bathroom was a little cramped as mentioned in other reviews.

Stayed: August 2017

Micro rooms and bathroom with a crazy and unbelieveble position!!! (see some pictures...). No Kitchen available! The worst hotel visited in Iceland...a real shame and offensive for Iceland lovers and tourist. Crazy price for worst quality....

We a family of 4 persons booked 2 double rooms. Both rooms included bath rooms (toilet and shower). The size of the bath rooms was that small that it is almost impossible to move around. The entrance of the building (to the rooms) is very noisy. The room itself was not very big. Breakfast was very basic and you have to provide your name before you can start breakfast (like a big commercial hotel - to make sure they do not miss any money). The guesthouse does not offer any kitchen facilities for your own use. We will never book this guesthouse again. There are many better guesthouses in Iceland.

Positive: Next the hotel is very nice waterfall (on walking distance).

The good things first. They recently renovated and the renovated area is clean and pleasant enough. The other good part is the pretty waterfall just behind the guesthouse. It is a pleasant 10-15 climb to the top, giving a good view of the area. Well worth it. Also Systrakaffi restaurant, just a short drive out serves good food and next to that is a supermarket. Now the negatives: we booked a room for 5 but on the reason that they renovated and no longer had rooms for 5, we were split into a room for 4 and 1. The unprofessional thing was that they didn't bother to update me ahead of my arrival though my booking was done many months ahead. Finding out upon check-in, after a long drive, was absolutely disappointing, to say the least. They offered no compensation, nor did they come across as being sincerely apologetic. The single room was in an old section and it was rather disappointing (in terms of its size, layout and decor). The info provided for internet access at check-in was wrong. The signal in the single room was poor. The only good thing about the single room was the attached bathroom which was decent. In our Iceland trip, we enjoyed many other more comfortable and hospitable stays. Klaustur-Hof Guesthouse was not one of them.
