Can't believe I am just now writing a review for this place. Stayed here for 5 days the first week of July 2013. Was greeted by Ernesto, the caretaker. He gave me a warm welcome and tour of the guest house. It is well appointed, cozy and in a prime location (5 min walk to main downtown strip). I had the single guest room straight up the stairs.
The guest house (I don't want to call it a "Hostel" because it really isn't) is fantastic. Has two clean bathrooms, a nice kitchen, living room and other amenities (sauna, etc.). They use a color system to identify personal food items and communal items. There is a nice espresso machine for your use.
I can not say enough nice things of Bedda. She was kind, quirky, informative and helpful...all in the best of ways. She is a music nut (like myself) and knew I played guitar and one day brought over one of her personal guitars for me to strum. Bedda...THANK YOU again! I owe you a vinyl.
Iceland became a very personal, special place to me because of the experiences I had. I will be back for sure and will not stay anywhere other than Our House.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- This guesthouse is located right in the city centre, surrounded by quirky little shops, bars, cafés and museums. Kárastígur is a residential downtown side street only a few steps away from the main shopping street and the iconic Hallgrímskirkja church. We call it a guesthouse but you could also call it a hostel or a Bed and breakfast with more emphasis on the bed than the breakfast. We run it but the guests pretty much take care of themselves. You get your own key, the facilities are all included in the price, and all you have to do is make yourself at home. ... more less
