We stayed here for 5 nights in September 2011. The hotel is situated in a quiet industrial area, without much to do around, but it wasn't far away from the center - only about half an hour of walking (if that) or 10-ish minutes by bus (the nearest bus stop is just across the street and there are at least 2 bus lines going to the center). The price was amazingly low (especially for Reykjavik), so keep that in mind when you see how basic and plain it is.
The room we stayed it was basic and rather shabby-looking, but clean... At least when we got there. This was really my only problem with this hotel - they never cleaned our room during our stay or changed the towels. Luckily, we were out and about all day long during every day of our stay, so we didn't end up spending much time in the room, much less leaving dirt around it, but it's still a very negative thing even for such a cheap hotel. We opted for a standard room with a shared bathroom (or, more accurately, two shared bathrooms) and, apart from the cleanliness, we got what we paid for. The bathrooms seemed to be cleaned regularly, although it's hard to keep track on that, since a lot of people use it every day (and you do need to count on some inconsiderate guests not flushing and/or removing their hair from the shower every once in a while). The room, although it barely had any furniture (two beds, a tiny wardrobe, one small table and a sink), was comfortable enough for a pleasant stay and some really good quality sleep.
The breakfast room was tiny, with only a few tables, but with a really friendly, cheerful, if not a bit hostel-like atmosphere, which I found very enjoyable. The breakfast buffet was plain and simple (bread, sweet pastries, a few kinds of cold cuts, cereal, milk, yoghurt, juice and coffee, pretty much), but it was very adequate, considering the price. Wi-Fi was free of charge and worked like a charm - we only used it in our room, but there is a computer in the dining room which one can use.
My favourite thing about this place was definitely the staff - they were extremely friendly, polite and always ready to help. They were also very knowledgeable about what there is to do in town, ready to give advices about various tours and extremely helpful when asked for directions.
I probably wouldn't recommend this place for a longer stay (due to the room cleanliness issue we encountered), but it's a great budget option otherwise. It's nothing more than a place to sleep and shower at, but it's worth the low price and, honestly, if you are visiting Iceland, you will not want to spend time in your room anyway!
