First thing I need to say is that this place is not suitable at all for people with mobility issues. You have to walk, go up stairs, go down stairs and do it all over again. The rooms are comfortable once you get into them. It is quaint. The breakfast room is slightly crowded however the food served for breakfast...

Appears to be student like accommodation. Clean and comfortable. 2 minute walk from Halgrimskirk and handy for shops and transport. Excellent breakfasts served by friendly, helpful folks and a great way to meet other travellers.

We stayed as part of a group at the start and finish of our tour. They stored luggage for us. The location was great. Basins in the room are good. We shared bathrooms but had no issues with queues. Had rooms right on the road but had asked for and were given rooms on ground floor...no problems. Fly bus dropped...

Very convenient location. Walking distance to the city centre, waterfront, church, etc. We stayed for 4 nights in total...2 on arrival and 2 on our return to Reykjavik. The rooms have a sink but the bathrooms are shared with 5 other rooms so sometimes you have to wait awhile for a turn. The rooms were clean but small and the...

Basic accommodation. We were okay with since it was for 1 night. Not sure if we could do more though. Room seemed clean. Walls are thin and rooms by street can get loud at night. Kitchen had the essentials. Breakfast was good. Location is excellent.

We stayed here with my mom. Hostel was clean and it was quiet area even with windows open. Employees were also polite and friendly. Breakfast was good selection for a hostel and price was great. The location was amazing. Close to bus station, basically next to the landmark church and center. Recommending this!

Clean and convenient! Pros: Great breakfast, only 2 blocks to main town area, and was nice to have a sink in the room so you don't have to wait and try and grab the WC between everyone's shower. My room was on the first floor so was a great location as I didn't have to haul my luggage up flights...

As the title suggests I have mixed feelings about this guest house. PROS: - Breakfast was good, a nice selection of breads, hard boiled eggs, cheese etc. - Clean. Everywhere was very clean. - The guest house is in a good location right at the base of the Hallgrímskirkja church which you can also see from pretty much anywhere in...

The location and the free breakfast makes this place very good value in this very expensive city. I stayed in a single and while it was tight the bed was quite comfortable. The toilets were quite clean and having seen the cleaning crew doing their work after the breakfast I can say they keep place well maintained. Definitely recommend. It...

Stayed 2 nights before and after a tour as organised by Intrepid Tours. I stayed in one double room, one triple. Bedrooms are outdated and bathrooms are shared and pretty small. As it was Summer the sun doesn't set until after midnight - they need some form of blind! Good option of breakfast but do your self a favour and...
