We stayed in the apartment at captain Reykjavik, with two people on a double bed and two people on the pull out sofa bed. Absolutely incredible value for money, gorgeous little space that had everything we needed and situated super close to the Main Street of cafés and restaurants. I would have been happy to have moved in.

This guesthouse was our last night in iceland. There are amazing places that are a little far from the city, but this is one is whithin walking distance to everything in the city, the last minute price was one of the cheapest we payed in iceland, and the breakbeat is like one you would get In a resturent.. Fresh hot buns, scrambles egg.. Desert..ect Staff was very nice, we already were flying home so didn't need much help planning but saw they were kind and helpful all together. If you want to see & sleep in the city go here! Excellent place.

Location is only a short walk away from the harbour and the centre of town. Staff were friendly and inviting. I'm vegetarian and my friend is vegan and they ensured the breakfast met our requirements. Decor is fresh and clean as were the towels and bedclothes.

The hotel had a rating of 9.6 when I booked which seemed high, it was nice enough, but not worthy of such an exceptional score in my opinion. Every time my bedroom door was opened someone seemed to be walking past or looking in which was awkward, from my bed when the door was opened I could see people at the breakfast tables, and kids were clambering about on the roof outside the window so privacy was a big factor. the bed should have been behind the door, not in front of it. No free parking and we got parking ticket literally within 2 minutes of arriving. Two single beds pushed together. Room felt spartan. Staff forgot to leave us breakfast the day we left as agreed. Not a bad place but definitely room for improvement.
It was close to the centre, a 5 minute walk. The staff were friendly and helpful. The breakfast though a set menu was delicious, home made and interesting.

Stylish and well maintained facilities. Felt like a better version of home. The two guys keeping the place were very nice and helpful. The breakfast was extraordinary! All and all and excellent place to stay overnight!

Very helpful staff at this place. They went out of their way for us and we really appreciated it. Our studio apt/room was comfortable and both the breakfast and location was excellent. I'd highly recommend to future travelers and would stay again

Only one pillow per person on the bed. I was looking for an extra inside the room but was not available. I didn't ask maybe they did.
It's very conveniently located to central Reykjavik. The owners were very hospitable and helpful booking our rental car and giving us lots of formation and recommendation. We stayed in one double and triple room both were decently sized rooms and clean. One bathroom in each floor both were also clean and never waited to use the facility. WiFi was fast and breakfast were decent. Freshly baked breads served in the morning. Overall a great place to stay.

Those guys rock! They are so nice, always ready to help you for anything. The rooms are very spacious, kitchen and dining are very bright and Nice. We loved our breakfast which was a very good addition to our stay, and all this for such a small amount of money (in april). We came back there twice.

We were completely amazed by how great this place is. Just to mention some points: really friendly staff that helped us on our stay, a great and well maintained double room, and if this was not enough, an delicious homemade breakfast. This is truly value for money, I will come back for sure!

Considering that this guesthouse just recently opened a couple of weeks ago, it was already very well equipped and we immediately felt home. All the rooms are very bright, clean and lovely. The Captain Reykjavik team warmly welcomed us and kindly helped us plan our trip. The kindness and love in this house is just amazing. After we had met these guys and spent our first night in Captain Reykjavik, we spontaneously decided to spent another night there after our trip around the country. Our stay in Iceland wouldn't have been that amazing without you. All the best for the future guys! Hope to see you soon! High Five ;)

The gentlemen who own the guesthouse are absolutely wonderful. They were so friendly and kind, and willing to help with anything we needed. I was so shocked to find out that they had only been open for two weeks! The rooms were lovely and my friends informed me that breakfast was really good!

The cleanliness of the 2nd floor bathroom could be improved.
The location is good and the Wifi is fast. Currently few guests visit, so two bathrooms is sufficient. Last but not least, we love their homemade breakfast!
