Alba Guesthouse pneumonia
I was stuck in Iceland for a layover and booked a room here. It was 6 degrees and raining heavily, while I was dressed for California. I was soaked to the bone at the door, but the host didn't want to let me in, because it was not check-in time yet. So there I am wandering all over Reykjavik waiting for 3pm. I caught a horrible cold and a bad fever a few days later. I can't say that the host is unfriendly. He just really doesn't give a crap about the well being of his guests.

All in all, a nice stay.
Rooms on the small side, but OK. Bathrooms ok, but a couple more would ease wait times. Hosts were helpful, breakfasts very nice.

Lost in Reykjavik.
A little bit difficult to get to, but pretty close to the primary tourist sites (museums, churches, shopping district) once you figure it out. There's no sense to the layout of Reykjavik, and no direct routes to anything.

Simple but clean
Small room, clean, good location to walk into town/be picked up for tours. Very good value for money compared to other hotels. excellent breakfasts and kind hosts (with cute (and quiet and polite) grandchildren!!) thanks Alba guesthouse.

Good Value & Location
The Alba Guesthouse is a good value. Friendly hosts. Our room was clean and comfortable with dark curtains for a good "night" sleep at the height of summer. Be sure to enjoy their breakfast and coffee. If you plan to day-trip, you may want to arrange for Alba's bag lunches. They gave us two sandwiches, a fruit and a fruit drink for 1100 kroner- a good value when you consider the food prices at tour stops. The Alba Guesthouse is a short walk from many local sites, and is also a pickup site for the Reykjavik Excursion and Grey Line tour buses - perfect for my active family. If we visit Reykjavik again, we would stay at Alba Guesthouse.
