I stayed here for one night prior to setting off on a week long adventure across the countryside. My flight arrived early in the morning, but the hosts were accommodating and allowed me to get my luggage in so that I could go off and explore the city. They even rushed in to have my room ready for me as...

We stayed for 4 days and the hospitality was extraordinary. Mr. Johannes is really helpful and hands on. The accommodation is quaint and centrally located. There is support with anything one needs. Highly recommended.

We stayed here at the beginning and at the end of our trip. At the beginning we arrived late at night and the pin code we were given when booking the rooms was wrong. We tried calling all the numbers at the door. But it took 45 minutes until we reached Johannes. The rooms were nice but quite small and...

We spent 5 nights at this charming little house and would highly recommend it to anyone. Such a warming homely vibe and the centre of Reykjavik is right on your door step! What more could you ask for. Additions like the sauna, coffee machine and underfloor heating in the bathroom just made it that little bit extra special. 5 stars...

Lovely warm cosy home. Greeted on arrival by Johannes with a nice hot tea :) Very friendly and helpful hosts. They let you get on with your trip which is nice. But they're keen to speak about the area and Iceland if you ask. Nice clean warm accommodation. You can pop to the local 'Bonus' supermarket and use the cooking...

It was a pleasure staying with Johannes and Junia. From when we arrived they were attentive and personable, helping us with anything we needed. The sauna in the basement was a surprise for us, and was an exciting bonus to our trip. Johannes was up one morning extremely early to ensure a few of his guests made it to their...

Lovely guesthouse in a great location for Reykjavik. Everything you need here, wifi, travel plugs, coffee machine, water machine. The owner is very helpful and welcoming and happy to give tips on Iceland. Our room number six was especially nice found it very modern. Wish we'd stayed even longer!

The slogan of the house says it all: Our House, Your Home. The house is really cosy and the owner (Johannes) can tell you everything about Iceland with also a little humor. A great way to start your Iceland adventure! We definitely recommend this place to other travellers.

Great please to stay at our House! We are still here, and have booked another night to stay. The most loveable, sweet people in this guest house. Everything is clean, cosy and warm.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
This guesthouse is located right in the city centre, surrounded by quirky little shops, bars, cafés and museums. Kárastígur is a residential downtown side street only a few steps away from the main shopping street and the iconic Hallgrímskirkja church. We call it a guesthouse but you could also call it a hostel or a Bed and breakfast with more emphasis on the bed than the breakfast. We run it but the guests pretty much take care of themselves. You get your own key, the facilities are all included in the price, and all you have to do is make yourself at home. ... more   less
