Literally just returned (5/8/11) from seven days in Reykjavik staying at the Odinn. Great value for money, costing 840 euros. We had a triple room next to the communal kitchen. It appeared that we were the only guests using the kitchen so effectively it was like staying in a small flat. The Odinn is spotlessly clean and all the facilities are modern. The choice of food at breakfast time (8am to 10am) was extensive and the breakfast room itself is on the third floor with great views over the city and to the glacier beyond.
The owner, Olafur, was always prompt in his replies to our emails when organising the stay and whilst we were there he was very friendly and helpful, for example getting on the phone on our behalf to check details of proposed outings.
Small downsides are that some nights we were disturbed by others, tourists or locals, making their way home noisily and the shared bathroom (ourselves and up to two other rooms nearby) had the potential to be frustrating though in practice it wasn't much of a problem.
All things considered, a great place to stay, superb location for all the attractions of a classy city and the use of a kitchen helps to keep costs down.
