Perfect location just off the main street Bit shabby but you won't get much better for the price Access to basic kitchen facilities Comfy beds Really helpful staff Good level of cleanliness Never had to wait to use the showers or toilets Quiet all week but on the last night a group of backpackers arrived who were anything but quiet! Bear in mind that tour operators seem confused by the location - double check they know it as I nearly got left behind.

Spartan - No frills boarding
Cheap (relatively spaeking), basic - no frills boarding. No TV ion the room or for that matter in ther hotel, and shower rooms and toilets are shared with other guests. Cooking facilities are provide in the basic shared kitchen, but there is also an excellent unaffiliated restaurant-bar on the ground floor. Location is good - just beyond the hurly-burly of the city centre which is about 10 mins walk away.

Awesome quiet place for couples
We Stayed at Guesthouse 101, its a Hostel, but we did it with a private room, was amazing... about the size of an oversized standard bedroom. The bathroom and shower were across the hall, the entire place was VERY quiet which was very nice. The kitchen has a hit plate burner, pans and utensils till make simile meals pending how creative you want to get. The walls are kind of thick so you don't really hear your neighbors, we booked the 31st, because we came in at 0450 am and absolutely nothing is open till about 8am, checking was super simple. Rang the bell, lady unlocked the door, informed where our room was key was in the room... and done. Got some bfast from down stairs the 1st day... $23 per person roughly... eaaaack... but the food was amazing and buffet style. There is a mini mart across the street 1/11 Market... DONT shop there, wait until the BONUS (Iceland grocery store) opens at 10/11am till 7pm, everything is 1/3 the price. Also, the water here you can drink straight from the tap, so bring a ultra flask or save your water bottle from the plane ride and you can fill up from the sink, water taste amazing... everything is EXPENSIVE here, but everything is also very beautiful... the main strip is 5 mins walking from the hotel, there is a body of water you can walk to, but dress warm, it gets

Great location
For some reason my original reservation in another hotel was cancelled. Luckily, I found the last room in this guesthouse and it was pretty close to the place I was. Overall it was good although there was some kids made loud noise for 2-3 days during my stay. The location was very nice.

His was a cute little hostel type hotel in a good location to walk around the city. The rooms were small and the bathrooms and shower were shared but the beds weee comfortable and the room was clean. There is a good place to get breakfast downstairs and a majestic and coffee shop down the street. Of if you get your own food there is a shared kitchen with a stove and fridge. Overall a good play to stay, we only stayed one night but would have stayed more.
