Great location, just less than 15mins walk from downtown Reykjavik. You have the option to buy breakfast or not. The kitchen is open to anyone to make meals throughout the day. Greyline bus does shuttle you to and from the airport, plus many tours do pick you up from this location. Beds are comfy. Each floor has 2 bathrooms shared... More

This guesthouse was average, The price was good, but you get what you pay for. Many people share the same bathroom, which can make it difficult when you need to go! The shared kitchen is very close to the rooms, so it smells like food. Besides that, the wifi worked well, price was competitive, and the place was decently located... More

Extremely good for family and cost-conscious travellers. Kitchenette ensures that you can make food of your choice and coffee available 24/7 walking distance from BSI bus station and downtown area.

I loved this hostel. The staff were so helpful, the guests were friendly and quiet, and everything was organized and clean. It's only a ~7-10 minute walk to the BSI bus terminal and extremely close to the church, phallological museum, a heated outdoor pool, downtown Reykjavik, and restaurants! We will definitely be staying here the next time we are in... More

I was staying for just one night and had a rental car. Parking was handy, and it was close to the main roads. A short walk to Hallgrímskirkja church and some nice restaurants. My room was small, but it was clean and had a washbasin. The lady on reception was very friendly and helpful. There were facilities to prepare your... More

We stayed only one night, our room was nice but it was in the basement (only half a window, no views) and with no private bathroom, although we had a sink which was very convenient. TV in the room but it had only a few channels and quite blurry. The hotel is well located, close to the city center, 10... More

The location was perfect for us -- it was a short walk away from the bus station and the main attractions of Reykjavik. It was also quite affordable for Reykjavik standards. The rooms were basic but comfortable and clean. I especially loved the quaint dresser by the basement landing which had hairdryers and adaptors, and the well-stocked kitchen where people... More

We stayed at a Igdlo property closer to downtown, not the main guesthouse In ways it was fabulous - spacious room, great location, the staff exceptionally friendly and helpful. We were very comfortable there and the price was great! Other things were disappointing however - the room hadn't been well cleaned after prior guests. We wondered if the sheets had... More
