Similar to other reviews, we found the accommodations to be just what we needed for a one night stopover in Reykjavik. The location and price can't be beat. Our tour driver could not find the house so he called the owner for us. As the owner knew that we had arrived, he walked over to make sure we got in ok. Had we not called, I don't think we would have seen any management. The house claims to have wireless, but we could only access the hotspot one time, which was extremely frustrating as there was no one around to help us. The "check-out" process is non-existent. You just leave and leave the room key in the door, which we didn't feel entirely comfortable about. There was one shared bathroom on the upstairs level where our room was located. The floor flooded from the shower, but was otherwise adequate. The room itself (#3) was very spacious and well decorated (twin beds) with a nice side balcony. Yes, there was noise at night (Saturday), but it was expected and we had ear plugs waiting. Would recommend overall, but try to get the owner to meet you when you arrive and help you figure out the wireless.
