I popped in to see if there were any vacancies (crazy week in Reykjavik, everything was booked and I needed somewhere to stay). There weren't any, but the host asked me about my plans for Iceland, and when I told him I was going to be driving around the country via the ring road, he basically sat me down, and...

We stayed for 4 nights. The room was clean and well kept though (as with other peoples' views) the decor could do with a little updating and brightening up. However, that was a small issue. Johannes was a very attentive host, often around to ask questions (where to eat, what to see, best places to have a drink). Also, the...

My husband and I stayed here for one night in May. We chose it due to its great reviews on here. I think the reviews were quite accurate. This is a great location, just a few blocks from the main areas we wanted to see but nice it was a short walk away from the late evening noise. The house...

Johannes took excellent care of me and my partner. He was very friendly, and eager to give us tips for where to go once we asked for them. On the last day of our trip when I didn't have plans, he recommended a snorkelling tour, which we went on and it ended up being one of the best tours of...

This is a great B&B ... lovely room, nice bed ... very nice communal area, with Bathroom/Showers and Sauna down stairs. So much information at hand and in a good location halfway up the hill from the main High Street and the Cathedral. Very good value for money. Great Breakfast .....

Absolutely brilliant!! Highly recommended. It is located just steps from the church, which makes it easy to find no matter where you are in the city; it is also about 10 minutes from the city center! The house itself is just like being in your own home and is very well laid-out & designed. Johannes and his son Hlynur are...

I loved "Our House" , it was my favourite accommodation I stayed in a 4 week trip around Europe. It felt like being at your best friends house and had such a relaxing feeling. The accommodation is centrally located and easy to find. Bedda the owner was so friendly and welcoming. Bedda helped organize a Golden Circle trip for me....

We stayed at Our House for just one night when we returned to Reykjavik after our trip around Iceland, and I wish we could have stayed longer! We were greeted by Ernesto, who gave us a really friendly introduction to the house, and was very helpful with any questions we had. The location is fantastic; about two minutes from the...

We had a great stay at Our House, Bedda and the other staff were so accommodating, it is more like staying in the large house of a good friend instead of the usual hostel atmosphere. Nothing was too much trouble, we were able to split up the nights we stayed there and go south for a little tour, we were...

Location is the reason why I chose Ourhouse but actually I found it's so great in all aspect. Owner is a mother with three kids, but she leaves all freedom to guests with some notes to instruct you how to fully utilize the utility. You're welcome if you feel comfortable to follow her instructions. Food in refig is with two...

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
