It's basic, but the staff is lovely. There was an issue with the wifi and they took care of it immediately. The rooms are basic, but the beds are comfy. The issue we had was loud neighbors and a lack of blackout shades made for a sleepless night.

We went there from Hafnarfjordur, so we took bus and walked from BSI Terminal to the guesthouse. It is less than 10 minutes walk from there (though uphill is a bit tiresome). There was no double room for first night. But since another room connected with the shared kitchen was empty for remaining of the week, the host offered us to use both 2 rooms and kitchen exclusively for remaining days there. Then it is basically the whole apartment for our own use.
The guesthouse is 1-2 minutes from the famous Hallgrimskirkja and it gave us chances to see the church at different time under different shadow of sky. Also, it is close to the town centre and we can walk easily around without taking any traffic and enjoyed the serenity.
Breakfast is ok and have enough choices. Staff is helpful.
The only downside is that there is no cleanup service (even throwing of the trash) for the 6 days there.

Room Tip: the guesthouse is in the quiet area of the city, so there is no major difference if you stay in which floor or facing which direction.

situated in the centre of reykjavik close to the cathedral which makes it really easy to find your way around and find your way back to the hostel! the hostel is very clean, the rooms are a good size (for a hostel!) and the shared kitchen is well stocked! breakfast is provided everyday which is freshly cooked bread and cereals, some ppl have commented on safety issues but iceland is renowned for being safe and having low crime so we didnt find that an issue at all!! great base for exploring iceland!

Room Tip: upstairs seemed quieter

I stayed here for 2 nights. I found it comfortable and very clean with a generous breakfast. Shared bath but rooms have a sink which is very handy. The location is very central- everything is walkable including the main bus terminal. The owner is friendly and helpful. It is a little noisy with fellow guests in and out often but very little street noise.
