B47 is a great hostel. The whole place is clean and well kept, there are numerous bathrooms, kitchen is well equipped (although lacking a stove or a hot plate). The management is very helpful and friendly. The location of the hostel is a short 5 minute walk from the two main streets of Reykyavik and at the same time 5... More

I booked a package tour from a local travel agency which includes pickup from my hostel to the airport. But they didn't show up to pick up my friend until one of the staff in this hostel called them. And thanks to their help, I could be on time for my flight, or that travel agency could probably forget me…

Room very clean and spacious. Handy to have a wash basin in the room. Kitchen was basic but had all we needed for preparing light meals and snacks. The hostel had started a breakfast service which was great value and very tasty but is not yet running regularly. Staff also very helpful to book tours, recommend restaurants etc but it... More

This is a staff-free hostel. While everything goes well even without anyone serving you, sometimes problem may appear when you need to book something, such as pick-up transportation from the location, for which I have to resort to my own phone to call. There may be other way round but I didn't find out. Otherwise it should be a good... More

Staff free yet runs really smoothly. There is a really nice lady who seems to occasionally pop round to check things are ok and help out. The bus company offers a drop off and pick up service from the hostel which is handy.

My husband and i stayed here for 1 night in May. We found the hostel to be very conveniently located, right in the city centre. There is ample parking outside the hostel which is very convenient if you are planning to hire a car. The hostel itself was very neat and tidy with a well equipped kitchen and a big... More

I was staying in this hostel for one night in late April. Pros: 1) bathrooms are clean and tidy, 2) really quiet 3) simple check-in - there is no staff and you just receive an email with a door codes 4) short walk from city centre Cons: 1) I had a really strong allergic reaction to, most probably, mold and...

We stayed at B47 for one night during our road trip around Iceland. The electronic check in is fantastic and the rooms are large with everything you need. We were able to park our car easily and used B47 as a base to explore the sights of Reykjavik on foot.
