So here I was, in Iceland with my budget, a couple of months to spare and my curiosity for culture, adventure and my mischievous sense of humor ready to calibrate the surroundings in my own way. Little did I know that I would find such a great enjoyment and thrilling experience at Salvation Army Guesthouse. As most of you probably... More

Very nice room, good location, excellent services on reception. Big kitchen with dining room. No parking, but there are cheap parking house very near. We were suprised, that at night was quite silence, more than we expected.

Reykjavik is an expensive city, and the Salvation Army Guesthouse is a very good option. The best thing is its location in the older part of the city, so everything is within walking distance. My room was clean, as were the bathrooms. Reception was helpful. There might be some noise (especially with large groups) but it is a hostel, so... More

I spent in Salvation Army guesthouse almost 2 weeks in August in 2010, when I came to Reykjavik as an erasmus student; as the apartment where I was supposed to stay was not yet available in August, I had to wait in Salvation Army until September. I definitely enjoyed my time in this Guesthouse: the staff was always very kind... More

The Salvation Army Guesthouse is a dorm all year long - even when there are not students you will find conditions to be that of any typical college. Shared bathrooms and I imagine that in a full room, it could be very crowded. But the location cannot be matched for such a great price. If you're looking for frills and... More

This guesthouse is very cheap and has a great location, but it's very noisy. The walls are thin, so you can hear everything from other rooms and corridors. At least in August the place was very crowded and people were making noise in the corridors from early morning until midnight, and past. The room we had was spacious, but quite... More

For accommodation in the heart of Reykjavik, this is definitely one of the cheaper options you can find, especially for those who enjoy nightlife since the bars and pubs are just out in the street near the frontdoor. Rooms are small, with just enough space for a bed and a sink for washing up, and a cupboard, with communal toilets... More

I spent three nights here in August 2012 and was impressed. The location in Kirkjustraeti, just a couple of minute's walk from the Parliament Building and the harbour, is excellent. Rooms are various - singles, doubles and dormitory accommodation. A single worked out at 8,500 ISK and represents good value in a pricey city.. Rooms are fairly small. Facilities are... More

We stayed at the guesthouse for two days. Despite the fact that there is no elevator, and we had to carry our luggage to the second floor which was quite tiring, the guesthouse has a very central location to the city centre yet the price is inexpensive. The facilities are simple but kept very clean. The staff are friendly as... More

This guesthouse is very well located and the prices are well below hotel prices in Reykjavik. Rooms are very basic and some of them (we saw 3 different) are quite small.  Only hand towels were provided. Room windows are very thing so the noise from  bypassing cars may wake you up in the middle of the night. Couple of odd... More
