The term guesthouse here is a little bit deceiving. It is more like a hostel - but it was clean, in a good location, and the price was good. There is a coffee shop across the street, the harbour is close, and there is a supermarket a few blocks away.

The hostel is located in a nice place, next to the harbour. However we had à room at the second Floor in front of the kitchen and consequently, we heard everyone having meals no matter what timw it was (6am or midnight....). Not much attention as well, but one of the cheapest we found in Reykjavif area.

Hi Sorry but this is not a guest house but more like a long term hostel - all other residents were men. Quite a noisy place to stay even if they were friendly. Totally inappropriate for children. I would not recommend to others

Stayed here for a week and loved the place. Very basic, but everything you need, and we didn't miss anything during our stay. Check in/out was no trouble at all, and during our one week stay we could choose wether or not we wanted to interact with the other tourists arriving and leaving the guesthouse. The only drawback was that... More

Just arrived home after a four night stay. Fabulous place to stay. Sirry is very helpful and nothing is too much trouble. The cafe across the road is welcoming and does the best hot chocolate. Will be returning!!!!

New owners were awesome & made it such a pleasant stay - made us feel like we were at home instead of guests. If you stay make sure you take advantage of the home cooked meal option.

Arri (that's probably not how he spells his name) picked us up from the airport and the holiday started there thanks to him as far as we were concerned. Not set up like a guesthouse any country iv ever stayed in. There was complete trust, felt more like a private apartment but someone came in and did breakfast, his mother... More

Stayed here for 4 days. The owners were both lovely, very welcoming and friendly and extremely knowledgable of the the area/reykjavik and Iceland in general. We were welcomed on arrival and given a tour of the guesthouse and had a very nice chat. Was a really nice welcome to Iceland. The room was clean, spacious and very comfy (the bed... More

I stayed here for a couple of days and used it as a base to tour sights in driving range of Reykjavik. There is a small parkinglot at the guesthouse itself. The guesthouse itself is a cosy and informal place with a small kitchen. I stayed on the first floor, where you have three rooms.Although the room had a small... More
