The location is great, near the city, shopping center and just 10 mins walk to the bus terminal station. The room and bathroom are clean and staffs are friendly and helpful. The price is appropriate, wifi connection is strong, great choice for staying in Reykjavik if you are a traveler.

My husband, adult daughter and I stayed for five nights at the Flying Viking Guesthouse in Reykjavik. This guesthouse is in a great location! It is within walking distance of the National Museum of Iceland and many nice restaurants. Tour buses picked us up only one block away from our door. Our accommodations had a private entrance around the corner...

Once you arrive in Iceland, you will have a great time including staying at the Flying Viking. It is centrally located. For example: It is an easy walk from the Fly bus central terminal, if you use them (I would only recommend them for tours not for the airport shuttle, but that is another story). It took us no more...

We stayed at the Flying Viking for one night before exploring further in Iceland. Accommodation is expensive in Reykjavik, but the Flying Viking is central. We had a simple yet functional room. The bed was comfortable and the room was warm. There is a shared bathroom on each floor. It was clean and well kept. The only annoyance was the...

I spent 2 nights in studio A. Very clean but very basic. Studio has 2 single and 2 bunk beds and would work well for a group of 4. Limited power outlets and only ceiling lighting but price and location make it a winner. Would not hesitate to stay here again.

We were three people and knew there was a shared bathroom. Our large room was comfortable and there is a good cooking facility for those intending to shop at Bonus and cook. Walking to the places of interest was our goal.

We recently visited the Flying Viking Guesthouse and in terms of location it is perfect. Parking was not a huge issue as we were able to find a spot directly in front of the guesthouse and only had to pay 100 Korona for an hour (parking is free from 6:00 pm-9:00 am and Sundays). We had a large spacious room...

We stayed here for two nights in September, the guesthouse is warm and clean with good facilities. All facilities are shared. Our room was ok, the beds were comfortable and clean. Some parts of the house need a little maintenance (like door handles replacing). The location is great through. Really close to the city centre. There is no parking provided....

“All the rooms are couple size. Ground floor rooms adjoin the common area so are a little less private. I'd recommend upper floors.”
