We stayed three nights and it was great spot. We were close to downtown and were able to walk everywhere. Room was clean. After checkout we were able to leave our luggage in a locked room until we left

A lovely space to stay in downtown, leave your luggage in the room and your can go around the city all the day. The staff is very kind. 3 minutes to supermarket. But one of the shower door is broken...hope you fix it soon.

My son and I were here for 3 nights and found it perfect for what we needed. Beds were comfy, room was toasty warm, bathroom and kichen were nearby and other travelers were friendly. Kitchen had all the things we needed: a tea pot, dishes and silverware, fridge space and a large table/chairs. Two towels were provided and there were...

If you're travelling on a budget, but want to be in the centre of Reykjavik, I highly recommend this little gem. Stayed with my adult daughter in a twin room. You call as you arrive and someone comes to meet you, in our case, a very pleasant young man who gives you a tour of the guesthouse. Spotless, beautiful vintage...

Extremely comfortable beds. Perfect after you've done a lot of walking. The kitchenette is a really nice way to help you save money while you are traveling because you can shop at the local grocery stores and make your food there. On top of that, there is a free food section for people to leave anything they don't want to...

I stayed in a single room here which had a window covered in mould. The matters was about 2cm thick and totally inadequate. Told that the mould is because of the weather, not a good explanation given everywhere else I've stayed in Iceland doesn't have this problem. No attempt was made to actually clean it. Wouldn't recommend nor will I...

Absolutely lovely little guest house. The location was smack bang in the heart of the city center and was located central to all the local bars and clubs whilst still enjoying a quiet nights sleep. Close by was the high street where I was able to arrange all my travel and excursions and purchase all provisions for my stay. Staying...

Nice place, basic but nice. Nice kitchen where your room gets it own space in the fridge and cabinets. Check the left over stuff so you don't buy dupes of stuff like sugar and coffee filters. Place is clean, relativity quiet and pretty centrally located. Wifi in all the rooms and floors as well.

I stayed in the "basement" there was someone walking back and forth on the floor above for hours. The hair dryer had gone out, in the basement, I was told to go to the upper floor and borrow one... (how much does a hair dryer cost?) On the day of check out, I was told by the maid that I...

This ticked all the boxes for us - cheap, clean, central. We booked a twin room which was clean and roomy, however the pillows could perhaps be upgraded. Even though its shared bathrooms, there were plenty of showers for everyone and we never found ourselves waiting in the morning. The only thing was a smell coming from the drains (although...
