I stayed here for 4 nights at the end of February and into the beginning of March. All that mattered to me was that the rooms locked and I had a place to sleep. At times the guesthouse was relatively loud with people opening and closing their doors.. And I was on the top floor and could still hear people... More

Room was clean, had sink, table & chairs & double bed. All clean. Our room was next to a bathroom which had a sink, toilet & shower. It was fine, toilet seat was wonky but not end of the world. Shared kitchen which was small. Useful for a quick breakfast & making lunches. The price is reasonable & cheap for... More

This hostel has some bad reviews that to me seem unfounded. I chose this place because the value for money was unbeatable! We paid £17 per person per night for a double room including bedding and towels, where it was about the same or more for a dorm room. The hostel was clean and tidy, and decorated and furnished perfectly.... More

This hostel was quaint and clean! Never stayed in one before and was pleasantly surprised. You are supplied with fresh towels and share only a kitchen and bathroom. The woman who runs the place is kind and very helpful as well. The hostel is located in the heart of the city and the walk to downtown takes about five minutes... More

Good location - Rooms are nice and clean. However, toilets are not as you would like to see the. Don't get me wrong, they are not bad but they are not hostel standard ie. Floor was wet. For one night stay it should be ok.

We needed a place for 3 people - my two adult children and myself. The location was good and allowed for easy walking to restaurants and events. Unfortunately, the facility is in terrible disrepair. They only give 1 roll of toilet paper PER DAY in the restroom. When we would complain, they might add one more but only for 1... More

This guesthouse has a great location within walking distance of all the places you'll want to go in central Reykjavik. As for the hotel itself, it's sort of a gamble. There is a large discrepancy between rooms in terms of quality. As some other guests were leaving, I saw into their rooms and some of them looked very spacious and... More
