Clean, friendly and always had parking outside. You would assume it would be very loud being beside a busy road. I barely heard any cars. The bathrooms were always very clean. There was free shampoo and body wash in the shower room which was so helpful- as I had forgot to bring some and it is very expensive to buy...

I liked that there was a espresso maker and community kitchen with fridge space and a small dining room available. The rooms were clean and fresh. My son liked the bunk beds. The location is walking distance to the main church, but close to a busy street, not that we heard the traffic. Our room was in the basement, which...

We stayed for 6 nights in a private shared room. On arrival we were informed we were staying in a small room that wasn't directly connected to the main building. The room was large with is own kitchenette (inc. fridge, sink, portable induction stove), bathroom and television. We were still able to use the main common areas where we had...

This hostel is great, the staff is excellent as is the location and the cleanliness. We stayed here for 8 nights. The hostel is about a 15 minute walk or less from all the major locations you'd want to see/eat in Reykjavik! I would highly recommend this hosel.

The bathroom on the ground floor(where the reception is) is a mess! The door of the shower booth was broken. I tried so hard not to make it fall towards me. The drain was so slow that I almost made a flood. Igdlo guesthouse didn't seem to care at all because it was just like that for the rest of...

I liked this guesthouse. I was traveling in a group of three. We stayed in a room with one bunk bed and two twin beds. The condition of the room was good, there was enough space for everyone, and having a sink in the room was great. The bathrooms were clean. The breakfast was a reasonable price. There is laundry...

We stayed at igdlo for 5 nights in 2013 and were so impressed we vowed to return to stay on our next trip to Iceland. Three years later we did exactly that and found that standards of both cleanliness and hospitality had slipped somewhat. Upon arrival we had to go looking for someone to check us in - the lady...

We stayed here 3 nights (night we arrived in Iceland, following, and night before leaving Iceland). It is good if you land in Keflavik and go to Reykjavik Bus Station with Flybus, as guesthouse is located 10 min walking from Bus Station. Also 5/10 min walking to main church and city center. Free parking. Athmosphere is nice and young, staff...
