Simply put, Our House changed my life. I booked it because of the sauna, but the people I met during the 4 days I stayed there in August 2012 have stayed with me (figuratively, and in one case, literally) ever since. It might as well be called Our Home, because of Bedda and Ernesto and their generosity. As others have...

Great to stay at an amazing and friendly guesthouse in Reykjavik. Well worth it if you don't mind being part of the family. The coffee machine was especially welcome as well as the basic selection of breakfast.

There's a reason this place is #1 of all specialty lodgings in the city of Reykjavik - it is Bedda, the owner/hostess of this place whose energy and warmth in welcoming you to this lovely city is one of the reasons I recommend it highly. This comfort and warmth is relaxing and infectious! The people we met at this place...

Stayed here last Aug but the review has disappeared! We stayed in 4 hostels during our stay in Iceland. Our House is a great place to stay. Bedda is lovely. The communal areas are really nice and the rooms are great. Lots of character. Dont bother with the whale watching trips- they are a con.

Our House is the perfect place to stay in Reykjavik. The owner Bedda is the best host ever, both incredibly helpful and a really lovely person. The house is in the perfect location in Reykjavik. The room we stayed in was beautiful, and the atmosphere is so relaxed that after a few days we were lounging around and really feeling...

Our House is matchless in every way! As others have said, it really does feel like "your house" when you're there. The environment opens up relationships and conversations with other travelers so naturally. It feels like you're part of the family. Easy, walking distance to some of the best places in the city. And personal hospitality you won't find anywhere...

Possibly the nicest hostel I have stayed in! It really does feel like your house for the night. We had just one night and were in a double room. The room was a good size and clean. The shared bathrooms were also well equipped and clean but you do sometimes have to wait a bit to use them. Great breakfast...

Great clean place. Cozy room. Owner of the place was not always around but very friendly when we met her. Bathrooms were nice and clean. Free basic breakfast! They also upgraded us and gave us free linen with the sleeping bag discount.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
This guesthouse is located right in the city centre, surrounded by quirky little shops, bars, cafés and museums. Kárastígur is a residential downtown side street only a few steps away from the main shopping street and the iconic Hallgrímskirkja church. We call it a guesthouse but you could also call it a hostel or a Bed and breakfast with more emphasis on the bed than the breakfast. We run it but the guests pretty much take care of themselves. You get your own key, the facilities are all included in the price, and all you have to do is make yourself at home. ... more   less
