We stayed at the hotel in two different rooms, at the beginning (Andrea Building) and at the end (Aurora Building) of our road trip in Iceland. Both times the pros and the cons were the same. Starting from the positives, the guesthouse is located in the centre of Reykjavik, in a walking distance from the BSI Station and the main sights of the town. The room was clean and the breakfast was more than satisfying (although the space was small for such a big guesthouse). The owner was very friendly and helpful and despite our late (at 02:00 A.M.) arrival in the first time, everything was organized correctly.
The main disadvantages are two: the noise and the bathroom. Due to the difficult locks and the lack of sound insulation, a late arrival can wake up all the building. The steps are narrow and this makes it even harder. On the bathroom issue, during our first stay, the wash-basin was located in the same space with the shower so you definitely didn’t want to have a shower barefooted. Finally, there is only one shower/wc room in each floor which has 6-7 rooms, so in the worst situation 14 people will need the bathroom simultaneously and the queue will be long, especially in the morning.
