We knowingly booked a room that was smaller than we would have liked for our larger party but we were only staying one night so the room and facilities were fine for us. And the beds were comfortable. There were not a lot of accommodations available at a decent price in downtown Reykjavik that weekend. The room was a bit tired looking but the guesthouse was good value for the money and we would stay again.

Disliked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Never ever met manager/owner, no toilet paper most times, washroom door would not close or lock, had to have friend sit in front of the door when showering, lights not working in stairwell and kitchen, run down, shower and kitchen sink taps continuously dripping. No tv or radio in rooms as stated, very rundown. Decent beds is the only plus.

Easy check in process, but the parking could become difficult since its street parking. Otherwise a decent guesthouse.

Excellent location! Just steps away from bus stop 2 which was used for our excursion pick ups. 5 minutes away from streets full of restaurants and bars. The room had everything we needed and was really cozy.

The location is great, right downtown and easily accessible to bus stops. Many food and shopping options around as well. It also has a very nice and homey kitchen and dining area where we could get some tea before heading for trips. Very good value !
