The guesthouse is located at a 15 min walk from the center of Reykjavik. The room was clean and the owner friendly. The breakfast provided is well stocked and the french-press brewed coffee was a nice touch. Free wifi.

A nice guesthouse with good value, in comparisson with other lodgingin the neighbourhood. Just a walk away from the city centre. Good breakfast and a warm and friendly welcome. No luxury, but comfortable beds and very neat and tidy.

When we booked this Guesthouse, we were not sure we booked the best place in regards to location and standard of accommodation. However, we were wrong! We arrived late at night, and the owner waited up to greet us. We were given a very spacious room,which was clean and quiet. We had shared amenities which I was worried about, but... More

When we arrived, we were really tired from the trip, but the staff was very friendly and welcoming so we immediately felt better. The rooms were simple and tidy. We weren't used to shared bathrooms, but everything worked out fine. The breakfast was wonderful- fresh warm bread, selection of meats, cheese, fruits and nuts, cereal, juices, joghurt. The staff was... More
