This lodging is very basic but would be perfect for those who just wants a neat and accessible place to sleep. I have a reserved a single room but was given a room with two beds across the kithcen/dining room and bathroom. The bus hub is on the corner side. This hub is for public and tour buses.

The location of this guesthouse is great, right in the center of Reykjavik, just around the corner from the main street. We had requested a twin room, we were given a double with 2 single blankets. The room was pretty spacious and always nice and warm. We had a sink in the room but were across the hall from 2...

This was my second stay at a hostel. We booked the 12 bed mixed dorm as we were staying in Reykjavik for one night and just needed a place to rest our heads. The location and the outside of the hostel look nice but do not be fooled. The bathrooms, kitchen and common areas were dirty. When we got to...

Very basic accomodation in good location near to the city center. The rooms are small but clean. We had a double room without bathroom. The toilet and the shower were in the floor. We didn't have breakfast. The service is good we arrived in the middle of the night and everythingh was OK.I think it's good for a short stay.

More than a dozen rooms share 3 toilets and 2 showers... It gets crowded and dirty quickly in the evening... The showers are in poor repair as well. The room are small, not well clean and extremely noisy. Each room is separated by the next one by a plastic partition that doesn't muffle the sounds. Our one was next to...

The accommodation is basic if you want a central base in Reykjvick and just need a place to crash for a sleep. Staff were helpful and the 3rd floor was kept clrean and tidy. The common area ok and the lift to the floor a bonus. Its a pity the locals & visitors treat the path outside the building for...

The guesthouse is situated in central Reykjavík in the shopping street. Since hotels in Iceland are really expensive, this one is no exception. For 90€ a night you get a small, clean room with two beds. Showers and toilets are outside in the hallway. It's okay if you just want a clean place to sleep but if you want something...

For the money, my friends and I thought this place was totally fine. The bathrooms were always clean, the kitchen area as well. The room was plenty big for four people and the sink was a bonus. This is very hostel like, but considering the price of things in Reykjavik - we were pleased. We stayed four nights in total...

I can't say enough about the guest services here! So helpful and accommodating! They emailed me 2 days before arriving to confirm everything and gave me a final price, which was lower than what I booked for, score! We were a group of 16 traveling together and had 4 rooms and all the rooms were clean, with plenty of space...
