We stayed here with my mom. Hostel was clean and it was quiet area even with windows open. Employees were also polite and friendly. Breakfast was good selection for a hostel and price was great. The location was amazing. Close to bus station, basically next to the landmark church and center. Recommending this!

Clean and convenient! Pros: Great breakfast, only 2 blocks to main town area, and was nice to have a sink in the room so you don't have to wait and try and grab the WC between everyone's shower. My room was on the first floor so was a great location as I didn't have to haul my luggage up flights... More

As the title suggests I have mixed feelings about this guest house. PROS: - Breakfast was good, a nice selection of breads, hard boiled eggs, cheese etc. - Clean. Everywhere was very clean. - The guest house is in a good location right at the base of the Hallgrímskirkja church which you can also see from pretty much anywhere in... More

The location and the free breakfast makes this place very good value in this very expensive city. I stayed in a single and while it was tight the bed was quite comfortable. The toilets were quite clean and having seen the cleaning crew doing their work after the breakfast I can say they keep place well maintained. Definitely recommend. It... More

Stayed 2 nights before and after a tour as organised by Intrepid Tours. I stayed in one double room, one triple. Bedrooms are outdated and bathrooms are shared and pretty small. As it was Summer the sun doesn't set until after midnight - they need some form of blind! Good option of breakfast but do your self a favour and... More

I stayed at the Aurora Guesthouse for two nights. One before and one after a highland trekking trip. Check in was friendly and efficient both times and they kept some luggage for me that I did not want to take with me to the highlands. My pick up was too early to have breakfast on the first stay but I... More

The Aurora Guesthouse is located in a few neighbouring houses in the old part of Reykjavik. It is a guesthouse, not a hotel! The rooms are clean and comfortable with a bathroom to share with other guests and a mini kitchen available. The breakfast is wonderful, local breads and spreads, cereal, cheese, meats, fruits and of course coffee.The breakfast area... More

Not the B&B vibe I expected but for one night it was okay for me and a friend. It reminded us of being back in college. We had a lower level room and it was a little noisy. Even the breakfast room was a madhouse (like a cafeteria). But there was plenty of food. We had no interaction with the... More

This guesthouse has a great location, really close to the bus station and the main centre also. The room was adequately sized for two people, even though we had a lot of belongings with us. The breakfast was basic but the whole system was busy and crowded. We had to wait 20 mins for a seat, during which time we... More

The double room was adequate in size but the bed was just awful and should be ditched, not a good night sleep. Breakfast was included in the price but was very basic and there was insufficient seating for the number of people. The location was good, only a five minute walk from the BSI bus terminal and the city centre.
