          Stayed in the 2 bedroom unit. The location was great; a quick walk into "downtown" Reykjavik. Host provided good tips, such as location of local grocery and map. Host was very good with e-mail correspondence.

          Can you book tours directly at the guesthouse or is there some where close by for tours ? I'm super excited to finally get to visit Iceland so I'm on research mode now :)

          There were no safes but the rooms do lock and you must have a key to enter the building.

          Is the bathroom fully private with no glass walls or doors? We do not want to be able to see each other when using toilet shower!

          Our room had a private bathroom with no windows- when we were upgraded to the holiday apartment it was the same. Great place to stay. 😃
