2/10 Poor

After arriving to check in they could not find my reservation even though I had my confirmation and receipt of payment. They had to call another office who put them on hold to see where was my reservation. They do not disclose that guests have to rent a towel for a few, seriously even that's not provided. Please do yourself a favor and book elsewhere I will not recommend this place.

Excellent budget accommodation
Quiet clean room with shared bathrooms, kitchen, washing machine. restaurant in the check in area. Best value for money in Reykjavik. No breakfast served and no nearby shops. Need a car to get around.

Ventilation issues
The entrance to the guest house is behind a restaurant with garbage dumpsters. We had an economy room that was the size if a large elevator, it’s window did not open. that in itself would have been fine, but the lavatory was in the hall outside our door. The ventilation in the guesthouse was a problem for me.

Great stay
Our stay was great. The guest house was super clean and it had all the amenities that we needed. Is definitely a good and affordable option in Reykjavik. Obviously it’s very simple and the room was tiny but we were expecting that. I feel that the relative price value was perfect.
