My girlfriend and I stayed here this past week during our visit to Iceland, and we couldn't have been happier with our choice. We arrived at 8am local time (we had been up since 6am EST and worked the day prior, so to say we were tired upon arrival is an understatement) and were hoping to just stash our luggage there while we mainlined coffee at a cafe until we could sleep. The gentleman working there (unfortunately we never caught his name- he was blond, and had a good sense of humor if that helps management identify him) let us know that our room was already all set for us, and that if we wanted to just crash for a bit that it would totally be fine. Most US hotels will make you wait until 2pm; this was a very welcome surprise for two very weary travelers.
In general the experience was great. They do seem to lock the doors (your key will not open the front sliding door) prior to 1am, when the bars clear out on weekdays. This struck me as a bit strange, but it was a minor annoyance and not an actual problem.
Next time we go to Reykjavik (which we're already planning) we'll be sure to stay here again.
