Great Views, Relaxed Atmosphere.
Perfect location. Perfect price. The perfect place for my solo travels in Iceland. In the heart of the city center with the best views in town. If you are bougie on a budget, don’t go to a hostel, go to a guest house. Thor Guesthouse.

Economical and nicely located
Locations is amazing: it is in a walking distance to practically everything. It is also close to a bus stop where a lot of tour companies do pickups. The hosts are very nice and friendly. However, when I booked it, I did not realize it was shared bathrooms. Also, there is only one towel per person provided, so if you are peculiar about your towels, I would recommend to bring some with you. The bathrooms were clean and tidy. They also have two kitchens (the guesthouse takes two floors), a nice sitting area, a balcony. The walls were a bit thin, you can hear all that your neighbors are doing. It could be difficult for a sound sleeper. Nonetheless, I thought it was a pretty good place to stay.
