I stayed here for 5 nights the first of October. It is in a great location, right behind the big church so a short walking distance to shops, restaurants and maybe 15-20 mins to the harbor. I had a single room with bathroom in the downstairs. Compared to American standards, these rooms are very small. But I had all the essentials, and since I was mostly only sleeping here, I didn't mind a bit. My room had a single bed, with towels, coffeemaker, mini fridge, hangers, and a small chest (a TV as well but I didn't even touch it). I did have to be careful in the small shower, else water got all over the floor. Even though the breakfast food was quite different than what Americans are used to, it was my favorite part, I enjoyed catching up with other visitors and hearing what everyones plans were and what they had seen and done so far. Edda and Runar are great hosts. Edda even let me try the rotten shark and Icelandic schnapps, and a bit of sheep's head as well. Very competitive prices compared to the rest of Reykjavik. I would stay here again, if or when I return to Iceland!
