The owner was awesome in customer service. Will be back. The buffet breakfast was great too I
Room too small. No tv radio or fan . bed and pillow to soft.
reliable wi-fi reasonably friendly service kitchen available to guests good breakfast spread central location
The room was small, with no sink in the room. The shared bathroom was adequate - this seems to be the standard for Reykjavik - but I had to wait until almost midnight to take a shower because others were using it. No separate water closet. My room was right on the corner of an intersection so there was a lot of traffic noise. Other guests were noisy too. Not enough staff - hard to check out during breakfast time (although I give the poor guy points for being so hard-working) Sunna, located a block away, was much nicer - spend the extra 29 bucks - you'll be glad you did.
All of it.
Clean, quiet, friendly and very good breakfasts. Enjoyed breakfast conversation with other travellers. Great location.
Good location, tasty breakfast, clean spacious room, sink in bedroom
Manager unreachable after 10 despite power going out.
Great central location Nice staff Fine rooms. Expensive - but the most reasonably i could find with own small apartment. Ok breakfast.
Cleaning could have been better - but then Again had i not lost a tiny screw in my glasses i had to find i would never have found out..
Very kind host
Good location next to Hallgrimskirkja and walking distance to city center, cosy little bedroom, three shared bathrooms (one per floor), complementary breakfast, small sink in bedroom.
WiFi relatively slow.
The owner was very friendly. We arrived late and left very early next morning and he was able to accomodate us.
Guest house is right by the church on the hill so easy to find & return wherever you go. Trips collect & drop you at the door.
Beware that charge may be in euros - I wanted to pay local ISK & conversion was not a good rate.
This was my favorite place to stay in Reykjavik . Great location and price plus a wonderful breakfast. All the staff were friendly and helpful and there's a great pizza place next door!
Goood location in Reykjavik - nice people
The room is clean but a little small for 3 people. Close to city center. Breakfast is good. The owner is very helpful. Generally we were glad of staying at this guesthouse.
nothing at all
I booked a private room with shared bath. It was small but 100% clean & very comfortable. Breakfast included handmade whole grain bread choices. Easy walk to BSI and shopping.
Very nice staff Good breakfast
Slamming doors at night, other guests not respecting silent hours at night
In the midle of the Town. Staff was helpfull
Bathrooms to small and not enough. No mirror in the room. Breakfastroom too small for such a lot of people.
Location Free Wi-Fi Friendly staff Breakfast available (additional cost) if required Price
unfortunately we had to opt for shared dorm facilities as all other rooms were booked out - didn't like having sleep disturbed with people arriving and leaving at different hours and also having to queue for bathroom. This was not the fault of the guesthouse though - it was just our bad luck in not being able to book early enough to get our own room.
It was quite simpel
Friendly and helpful to stressed travelers. Excellent breakfast. Very helpful in booking excursions. Fond memories.
No negative thoughts.
Accommodation was basic but comfortable and clean. Kitchen and bathroom facilities were good and cleaned frequently and the hostel never felt overcrowded. Dorm rooms only had four beds which made them easier to sleep in. Bed linen and towels were provided at no extra cost.
There wasn't much space for luggage in the dorm particularly as most of us came with hiking gear.
wow~~the wifi is perfect. the breakfast buffet is good. good value for money.the view of window is beautiful~~perfect location , it's nearby the big church.
everything is good~
good location, helpful staff, free breakfast. it is not far from the Reykjavik Airport. just about 25 mins by walking. the staff is so nice, when the pick-up bus didn't come to the hotel to pich us up, the staff to help us give the tour center a call. At last the bus came.
the first time we lived in the main building whoes ground floor is provide the breakfast, the wifi is perfect. but the second time we lived in the gray building ,the wifi is so terrible~~ when someone got out in midnight,this could wake you up.
Very close to bus station which is good if you have an early departure. Simple and basic but clean and friendly and does everything you need for a night. Like many Icelandic guest houses it is somewhere between a budget hotel and a good hostel so don't expect posh furniture and luxury - but a great base for exploring the city.
Gets a bit full in the small breakfast space especially if there's a large party in all there at the same time before going on an excursion.
free upgrade to studio apartment, fast WLAN, breakfast buffet, free laundry service
room was not cleaned during the week we spent there
The location is great and place is quiet! Very clean rooms.
Rooms too small for 4 people. only 1 sharing bathroom in the floor.. Reception out of building and underground. Having 2 heavy suitcases made it hard.
