I wouldn't stay here again, but it is cheap and in a good location. It's a little eerie because they have no staff on duty like ever. Saw no one aside from a young woman cleaning in all 5 nights I stayed. They leave the key in the door and have a board with your name on it so you...

Good location but look for thor guesthouse as they operate under that name. It would have an excellent view but there was construction going on on the facade of the building. Big kitchens though the downstairs one isn't as nice as the upstairs (no need to threaten people to do dishes with a pic of Samuel l Jackson shooting a...

Very bad surprise when we arrived in the hostel. We saw very nice pictures on their website but the room we had is in another floor and it was simply a crap. Dirty, bed linen already used with hairs of previous guest, bad smell in the room from the shared bathroom, no space to move in the room and end...

When staying in a cheaper guesthouse, one does not always expect the best of conditions. But my expectations were more than exceeded at the Reykjavik Rental Guesthouse! My friend and I chose to stay here because we wanted to save money while in Reykjavik and this was one of the cheapest options that we could find. We also wanted to...

Yes, this place is a jackpot for those who can't pay a luxus hotel in Reykjavik. Nice, clean guesthouse with a fantastic guest kitchen, this helps a lot! Like a discount airline: " help yourself!" . Also nice rooms, simple and great for short staying, or if you need a place just to sleep. And what is important: on high...

Great location in the centre of Reykjavik and fabulous views to the water particularly from the kitchen area. Clean and cosy bedroom and the shower rooms were kept clean during our stay. Kitchen was clean and had lots of items in the shared/free area such as oils, spices, spreads so you don't need to buy everything to make a decent...

Decent facilities, excellent baths, functional wifi and helpful staff. Stayed for 3 nights quite peacefully and was only disturbed during Friday night due to loud and drunk other guests, but that's to expect.

I chose to stay here based on the location - it really is in the heart of Reykjavik, so it makes walking to everything so easy! The place was clean and had great views of the city from the kitchen/common area. Wifi was fast, coffee was good (on Booking.com it's listed as Thor Guesthouse) ... overall a great place to...

Great location, right at the heart of everything. They had nice, quiet rooms, and ample bathrooms. Good common area with a washer and dryer, a stove, fridge, etc. The rooms had a nice view of the city.

I loved staying at the Rental Guesthouse (Thor Guesthouse)! My husband and I stayed here over New Years. The room was clean, large, cozy and had a great view. The location was absolutely fantastic! I would definitely stay here again, if I ever came back to Iceland.
