The be honest for that price which I paid the facilities were to poor. Everything is quit small and kind of not finish constructed. Breakfast is ok I think it's enough to make everybody happy. What I did not like is that we had only one bathroom for about 5 rooms! This is to less! In the end I only...

Well situated in the center of Reykjavik and within walking distance of the Cathedral. It is less than 10 minutes walking from the bus station and the city center. Friendly staff, breakfast included, small rooms but it is a good option.

I stayed here with my partner for two nights. It was cozy and the location was great, just two blocks away from Hallgrímskirkja church. A good starting point for exploring Reykjavik. The included breakfast was substantial and the staff were helpful. I wasn't a fan of the thin walls however- We stayed on the third floor and could hear our...

We made Aurora Guesthouse our base while we began our trip through Iceland and found it such a nice and cosy place to stay! The staff are very friendly and the complementary breakfast has plenty to choose from as well!

I needed a base while in Iceland and this fit the bill completely. Very reasonable price. VERY clean. Young man did a through cleaning from top to bottom everyday. Room was small, but had what I needed. I had a little sink in the room, a desk with chair and a very comfortable twin bed. I enjoyed the communal sitting...

Great location within easy walking distance of pretty much everything. Plenty of food available in the breakfast buffet and you really appreciate having that to fill up on in a city as expensive as Reykjavik! We would usually book a hotel with en suite but couldn't afford it here and have to say sharing a bathroom presented us with no...

My friend and I stayed at a twin room in the main building of the guesthouse. They generally met my expectations for a guesthouse. The hotel is at the city centre. The room is clean and warm enough. We're near a bathroom, but I am not sure how many rooms share the same bathroom. I really don't like the smell...

Location is good. I stayed in the main building but totally no wifi at all. Better to stop advertising that they have wifi. Water smells strong sulfur but its fine. Quality of sleep is poor because our room is located adjacent to the bathroom and at the middle of the night I heard people trying to open our door knobs...

One of the main reasons for selecting this hotel was due to the website stating ‘Free Parking’ – the hotel has no parking!!!! It is possible to park on the street, but we had to park a distance away and walk back with our bags. Describing in as a hotel is misleading, it would be better described as a hostel...
