You don't talk about Fight Club
Very cramped. Almost hostel like. A German guest got into a physical confrontation with some Spanish or Portuguese guests in the middle of the night which was very unsettling to my children. No concierge or supervision after certain hours

Credit card overcharged
Regarding my stay, nothing outstanding to say, it was average compared to other places. However, upon my booking, I was overcharged by the property compared to the price indicated on my expedia booking. I tried to request for a plausible explanation and none was provided by the property, all that the owner told me it was due to exchange fees which is incorrect.

Nice, basic room
It was a nice, basic room, but the roof leaked on one of the beds, which dampened our spirits a bit

Good Guesthouse
The host is a stickler for cleanliness and guesthouse rules and may appear a bit up-tight..But the house is nice..We loved the location. it is close to bus stop 11 which takes you to downtown Laekjartorg stop in 15 minutes. Its worth the price. If you store your food in the fridge please put it all in one bag and mark the room number on it. There is no TV in the room but wifi is great
Anuja, 3-night romance trip
Verified guest review

6/10 Good

Staff and owner apparently enjoy entering one's room at will. We had to wait over an hour for an unfriendly man to come and open the door and show us our room. The walls are paper thin. If you don't mind those things, the cleaning personnel is nice and the hotel is just outside of town, which is convenient if you have a car.

6/10 Good

The area was clean. The staff wasn't there the whole time which made it difficult to check in. Rooms were ok, no black outs but beds were comfortable.

A guesthouse in a suburb
I got accustomed to it very soon. They have a kitchen, and a fridge. The bathroom might be renovated, to my taste, while the television was not working properly. After two nights, I even started liking to go to downtown Reykjavik by regular bus, which would take you 20 minutes. The streets are clean, and very calm. There's a supermarket nearby.
