Perfect location in downtown Reykjavik near all the main points. Reasonable price for Reykjavik. A double room with lavabo and WC. Perfect for a short stay or a first/last night in Reykjavik. Breakfast included but nothing extraordinary.

Travelling with a group of 31 students and 4 staff, it's always hard to know what the accommodation will be like as we are on a tight budget. We were pleasantly surprised how lovely this place was. The beds were clean and comfortable, although a fitted sheet would've been better than a flat sheet. There is a small wardrobe in...

The guesthouse is very comfy, the people are unbelievably friendly and nice. The little rooms are cute, the shower is clean and OK, and REALLY be careful withthe hot water, it IS HOT :) You can have breakfast every morning with nice people, mostly around the world. The kitchen facilities are also big and you can cook what you want....

Very nice guesthouse. Very well located, small but nice rooms, excellent price and very friendly staff. Nice well equipped kitchen and very clean bathrooms as well. If you won't mind with the lack of "charming" this basic guesthouse is perfect for you.

I wasn't sure what to expect when I booked a room in a dormitory, but I am very glad I did. The privacy of a room was nice, as opposed to a shared hostel room, and the price was very reasonable. Bathrooms are shared, but they were very clean. I wish someone had given me instructions on what to do...

Centrally located (Capital Region), so it's easy walking to everything & easy to the City Bus to take you farther out. Flybus drops off and picks up right in front. Stayed here for 5 nights: 3 upon arrival in Reykjavik before joining a tour and 2 upon returning to Reykjavik after the tour ended. I had a single room both...
