If you are looking for an inexpensive place to stay in Reykjavik look no further. The guest house is a 1 minute walk from shops, cafés and sights. Staff are very friendly. The room, common room and kitchen are kept clean. Our triple room on the third floor (no elevator) was basic, but comfortable: three cozy beds, a chair and...

We spent a really nice stay at the Salvation Army Guesthouse while we were in Reykjavik. This is a low budget solution and with the best location : downtown, close to bars, restaurants and main attractions. We could walk to every places from there. The rooms are small and the style a bit old-fashion but it did not matter for...

We were looking for accommodation in the Harbor area and stumbled onto this place. We loved everything about it. It's no frills, but you are getting an affordable room. I felt very safe as there was 24 hour front desk workers that you check your key into as you came and went. There was a band that played below our...

It takes about an hour and change to get to/from the airport but that's the case with any hotel in central Reykjavik. It was extremely clean and there were more than enough bathrooms and showers on the floors. The staff was really helpful when it came to booking any type of excursion or transportation. My friend and I got a...

The Salvation Army Guesthouse is really basic, but I recommend it. It's in an old building in the central part of the city. The staff is friendly, the area is safe, the rooms are clean, and the shared bathrooms are plentiful and clean. The furniture is older, but everything was in working order. The linens are not of the highest...

I stayed here two nights at the beginning of my tour of Iceland, and three nights at the end. The inside is a bit cramped and shabby, but it was clean and fairly priced. The central location means you have access to everything in the city centre, but at the same time, you'll probably be aware of noise on the...

I decided to book this guesthouse after reading about it in the Lonely Planet Guide, and as the Youth Hostel was full for the dates that I wanted. I telephoned to make a booking which was confirmed by a 20 percent deposit, the rest to be paid upon arrival. I was travelling to Iceland for 2 weeks, moving around the...

The room was clean, yes the bed was a bit soft, the paper thin curtain did nothing to keep out the midnight sun, the bathroom was down the hall (very very clean and well kept bathroom) but the place was the cheapest thing we could find in Reykjavik. The morning breakfast is not bad considering you could step outside and...

I stayed at this hotel at the end of May. For $60 Canadian a night I got an extremely tiny room of questionable cleanliness (and smell). The bed was very lumpy and when lying on it I thought the springs were going to pop out at any second. The window curtains were transparent white and did nothing to keep out...
