We were supposed to spend three nights there, but when we arrived an alleged friend of the owner (who we did not manage to see) told us the guesthouse was overbooked, although we booked and paid about two months in advance. The only option he gave us was to sleep in a really crappy place substantially farther from the Peace Center (which is already in the suburbs) for one night.
Till next morning, we weren't sure about where we would spend the second and third night. Finally, probably thanks to our insistent complaints, they "miraculously managed" to free one room in the Peace center for these two nights.
Not a single discount nor any other compensation was offered. First lesson: do not ever pay in advance. Second lesson: do not enter any hotel/guesthouse with your bagpacks (probably you will be picked to suffer the consequences from their on purpose overbooking). Third lesson: do not go to the Reykjavik Peace Center (which apart from the above is not such a clean and great place).
