This hotel is priced as a budget place compared to other options in Reyjkavik, so we were pleasantly surprised to find a comfortable bed and clean rooms. We stayed right by the entrance, which is my one gripe -- the windows were not very soundproof, and anyone standing outside talking (which does happen) sounded like they were right in your...

We got a family room (4 friends) a the week of March. From the get go johannes and his wife were amazing, he gave me so much advice about travelling in Iceland even before I came. He's such a friendly guy and really livens up such a quaint little place. The room was immaculate and the house is quite cosy....

Very very good place to stay in Reykjavík! Owner is the best and place is neat and tidy. I have honestly never met such a helpful staff anywhere on my travels as Jóhannes is at Our House. Warmly recommended. And the place is near everything in town.

The location is awesome, right near the two main streets in Reykjavik. The guesthouse itself is even better, with a home-like coziness to it that is much appreciated after a long cold day of activities. The beds are comfortable and the bedding is amazing (so much that I want to buy the same pillow). You get a free phone to...

We had a lovely stay. There is a nice kitchen to eat and sit. The beds are okay. And the shower is nice and hot. Close to all the shops and things to see. The only thing it's a little bit noisy. To warm up there is a sauna

Highlights: Bilingual, local calling cell phone provided, easy check in, beautiful clean space and wifi! There is nothing bad to say about this place, it truly is a home away from home. Comfortable beds, everything you need (and even things you may have forgotten!) Easy check in. You get a code for the front door and then there is a...

Our house is very comfortable and relaxed place to stay when visiting Reykjavik. You feel almost like home :) Staff is very friendly and helpful -thank you again, Johannes! We even had a chance to keep our rooms a little bit longer at our leaving day, for free :) Location is perfectly fine. Only thing that wasn't so good, was...

To start with, check-in was simple. You simply key a code in to get in the front door and then your key is waiting for you inside. There is a full kitchen in case you want to cook. The whole place is absolutely spotless. The guest house has the best location in the town in my opinion. It is a...

Please note the house has changed colour - here its white, on another site its blue. It is actually ( as of May 2016) yellow! The location couldn't be better and after a night out in Reykjavik I slept really well! But pretty sure the house was quiet. I didn't meet the host as there is a code system to...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
This guesthouse is located right in the city centre, surrounded by quirky little shops, bars, cafés and museums. Kárastígur is a residential downtown side street only a few steps away from the main shopping street and the iconic Hallgrímskirkja church. We call it a guesthouse but you could also call it a hostel or a Bed and breakfast with more emphasis on the bed than the breakfast. We run it but the guests pretty much take care of themselves. You get your own key, the facilities are all included in the price, and all you have to do is make yourself at home. ... more   less
