If you are coming from North America you need to know that there are a wide range of offerings in the "Guesthouses" in Iceland. All have shared bathroom facilities, some are private homes and are what we would call B&B's. Loki is actually 3 houses just outside of central Reykjavik that have a single mass breakfast room. It definitely has a 'hostel' feel to the place, but is otherwise very good, although the main house felt quite a bit nicer than the second (we stayed two nights but didn't see inside the third building) . Rooms have their own sinks and decent beds. the place is clean but not high-end in the conversion from a house to guesthouse. As long as you're ready for the mid-low end of the guesthouse spectrum it is well located, has helpful staff who are fluent in English (as are almost all Icelanders), and a decent value given the price of Reykjavik accommodation.
