We stayed 3 nites at Alfred's Apartment in Jun 2013.
The host, Halldór, was a very helpful man - he gave us a brief introduction of the city when we checked in. That includes a city map and pointing out places to visit esp. groceries-shopping.
The room was warm and clean. Space in bathroom is tight - so do not expect vanity top for your toiletries and stuff. For that matter, the apartment is basically very very tight. We requested for additional bed for the little one (extra cost) but in the end it was never open simply becos we couldn't shuffle out any space.
At the going rate, i believe the decor and space can be better but I guess the real value is its location. It is very very well located in the heart of Reykjavik. Landmark like Hallgrimskirkja is just 600m away, the street is well doted with restaurants and pubs.
Tip: the tap water, though portable, has a very strong sulphur smell. Leave it open overnight to alleviate the smell.
