We stayed at triple room and its enough for us to open our 3 big luggages. The shared toilet is fine but I think its not enough when the guesthouse is fully booked. Besides, the door is not soundproof, you could hear clearly someone is opening the door/walking at the walkway. Like I said, its not alot of customer that...

This b&b is really nice, close to international airport and with connections to Reykjavik. We had a good welcome at the reception and we were explained how to reach Reykjavik and enjoy the life and art there. The room was essential, communal spaces (including showers and bathrooms) deep cleaned. Breakfast was good too. Really recommended.

Inexpensive guesthouse in a bleak neighbourhood near the airport with tiny rooms, basic beds and shared bathrooms. Included breakfast not great...cold meat, cheese and toast or cereal. Juices are ice cold which is a lovely treat. Coffee is awful but readily available. Front desk staff are very helpful and prompt and do their best to accommodate guests; whatever time of...

Close to the airport, but the cleanliness was poor. The chairs looked like a forensic experiment, leading us to seriously question the 'clean-enough' appearance of the tatty bed linen. A bed for the night and close to the airport, but I would not recommend Alex for more than a one night stay.

I wasn't sure about staying here since I had never stayed in a hostel before -but it was more than I expected! I got a family room for my stay which fit 4 of us perfectly. I did hope to stay in one of the cute cabins outside but right now they said they are closed for the winter. The...

did the job for a stay near the airport. the beds were quite comfortable and bathroom facilities very good. the pickup service is useful and only takes a few minutes. is a breakfast included which is very basic, bread wasnt fresh and there was no milk so couldnt have the cereal on offer.

The staff at Alex is absolutely amazing. We stayed there the last night before a trip abroad and parked our car in their lot during our trip. When we got back we had car troubles. My husband spent four hours trying to fix the car before giving up and booking appointment at a nearby garage. The staff was extremely helpful....

This is the perfect spot to spend your last or first day in Iceland..the rooms are neat and clean..the shared bathroom and toilets were also very clean..we loved the place.. If your chances are good, there is a chance you might see the northern lights as well.

We were a party of 6 that stayed at Alex right before our flight. We got back from our tour around 10pm that night and had a flight out at 7:40 so we took a 5:30 and 5:45 shuttle. Tip: Shuttles only have room for 8 people and because we checked in so late others have already signed up for...

Spent one night at the end of a 7 day holiday. Both my wife and I really enjoyed our stay, reception staff were great, thanks for the pick up from car rental and the free shuttle to the airport - even got a heads up on Northern Lights right side window from the driver. Well stocked kitchen and spotlessly clean...
