Looking for a room to rent in Reykjavik

Hello,

I am looking for a room to rent in Reykjavik from the end of March to the end of June as I am interning at a fashion house in the harbour area.

I have spent the past two days searching for rooms on countless different websites, and there are many beautiful rooms, but most out of my budget I am afraid.

I am leaving my paid job, the money from which I have earned I will be living on for my time in Iceland, and I shall not be paid for the internship. Therefore, the rent must be affordable (my absolute maximum budget is £450 or ISK 86,000 per month, ideally as cheap as possible) at the same time, ideally, I'd be looking for a room in a relatively central location.

Hólmaslóð 4, Reykjavík 101 is the address for where I shall be working, in the harbour area, so ideally somewhere closeby (though I know it is a LOT to ask - everything for nothing lol)

Wondering if anyone could possibly help me out or give me some suggestions?

Kind regards,

Joshua

I don't know if you've seen this website before but my coworker passed it along for my upcoming trip. She rented an apartment for 5 days and it was right downtown and very affordable.

Most people on the rental market like a long time rents (longer that you require). The rooms/apartments that are for shorter periods will most likely run well above your budget. During a search I found the following, that might suit you. All locations require bus transport to Hólmaslóð.

Have you tried AirBnb? Very cheap, particularly if you just want a room and not an entire apartment/cottage...

I have to add that the best I could see on AirBnb in the central area was ~£525/mth, but you could contact an owner and see if they will give you a discount for the extended stay.
