Great location within easy walking distance of pretty much everything. Plenty of food available in the breakfast buffet and you really appreciate having that to fill up on in a city as expensive as Reykjavik! We would usually book a hotel with en suite but couldn't afford it here and have to say sharing a bathroom presented us with no...

My friend and I stayed at a twin room in the main building of the guesthouse. They generally met my expectations for a guesthouse. The hotel is at the city centre. The room is clean and warm enough. We're near a bathroom, but I am not sure how many rooms share the same bathroom. I really don't like the smell...

Location is good. I stayed in the main building but totally no wifi at all. Better to stop advertising that they have wifi. Water smells strong sulfur but its fine. Quality of sleep is poor because our room is located adjacent to the bathroom and at the middle of the night I heard people trying to open our door knobs...

One of the main reasons for selecting this hotel was due to the website stating ‘Free Parking’ – the hotel has no parking!!!! It is possible to park on the street, but we had to park a distance away and walk back with our bags. Describing in as a hotel is misleading, it would be better described as a hostel...

Stayed here with my family and friends (two quad rooms) for one night. The location was very convenient to the sites in Reykjavik, and the pizza restaurant next door is very good. The beds were comfortable, and the shared bathroom for the floor was clean. The tap water did smell of sulfur, but I would guess that is common in...

The location of the hotel is great. It's in the city center. They have breakfast too which makes it convenient for travelers who have to go out to find food for breakfast. The only problem is that the wifi has problems. We were staying not on the main building. We were staying the building next door of the main building...

The staff were friendly and helpful and the breakfast was a life saver! Fresh warm sough dough bread and juice every morning was fab. The location was perfect, central to everything and on all the tour schedules so we always got collected and dropped off straight there. I would stay again if going back to Reykjavik.

We spent one night here before heading out into the wilderness. It is in close proximity to the main part of town and free on street parking is available - though it was lucky we got a park at 6.30 pm and there was nothing available later in the night. This hotel is an excellent base for the budget conscious....

This place is more hostel like than guesthouse although it seems a lot of property is this way, that said for the price of around £85 per night which is quite cheap in Reykjavik you get a basic continental brekkie with fresh baked bread although space can be tight at times because it is shared with other property .
