Had a private room with a friend and it was clean and comfortable. Didn't break the bank. The Free Coffee and free parking were life savers. Met lots of people in the communal kitchen, and the walk wasn't too far from downtown. Wish there was more around. It was a little exhausting having to walk 25 min every time we...

Conveniently located, clean and the nicest people running the place. Was a great way to save on accommodations and use that money for great meals around town! Book early to get a nice private room with shared bath!

There are stairs up to the front door and the guesthouse has no elevator. Because Reykjavik uses hyrdo-thermal heat, our room was toasty to the point of opening a window, even though it was winter weather. The room, on the first floor, had 2 twin beds, a closet, sink and a mirror. The bathroom was located directly across the hall....

Two nights in Reykjavik at the igdlo. Room on 1st floor, next to bathhroom. Very clean, quite and felt welcomed. No luxury here, small single room, no cable on TV, shared bathroom ( but sink in rooms), so relatively inexpensive for the superb location. Less than 10 minutes walk from bus station and the cathedral. Basic but good buffet breakfast...

So, Igdlo. I had no idea what to expect, and the photographs I saw didn't really do this place a lot of justice. As a couple with a small amount of disposable income, my girlfriend and I had to think realistically when it came to booking accommodation in this incredibly expensive country. After browsing for a few nights after work,...

A lovely place to stay at a reasonable price, Iceland can be expensive and I was worried when we booked here that it may be cold or uncomfortable. Not the case, the rooms aren't with frills but nothing beats coming to a lovely cosy room after exploring in Iceland countryside. There are cooking facilities which are great because eating out...

Clean, friendly and always had parking outside. You would assume it would be very loud being beside a busy road. I barely heard any cars. The bathrooms were always very clean. There was free shampoo and body wash in the shower room which was so helpful- as I had forgot to bring some and it is very expensive to buy...

I liked that there was a espresso maker and community kitchen with fridge space and a small dining room available. The rooms were clean and fresh. My son liked the bunk beds. The location is walking distance to the main church, but close to a busy street, not that we heard the traffic. Our room was in the basement, which...

Very convenient kitchen. Also there are free tea and coffee - it's AWESOME! Very friendly staff. Nice interior design. Good price...
