Please note the house has changed colour - here its white, on another site its blue. It is actually ( as of May 2016) yellow! The location couldn't be better and after a night out in Reykjavik I slept really well! But pretty sure the house was quiet. I didn't meet the host as there is a code system to...

Johannes has great communication and extremely helpful with transport and recommending coffee and thermal spa in town. Space was homey, clean and welcoming. Centrally located between cathedral, shops and harbor. Visit the Nordic House if you like Aalto.

Stayed here for 2 nights recently. The location is perfect. 2-3 minutes walk and you're surrounded by shops, restaurants etc. The guesthouse was very clean and warm. We were out and about so much we never met the owners. So when we arrived we used a code provided in an email to get in and just took a vacant room...

The price & the location are good. The owner also very welling to support if you need. I like the kitchen & living room where I can hang out with friends. Only one bathroom for 6 rooms (about 15-20PPL) is a little bit not so convenience.

I stayed here for one night prior to setting off on a week long adventure across the countryside. My flight arrived early in the morning, but the hosts were accommodating and allowed me to get my luggage in so that I could go off and explore the city. They even rushed in to have my room ready for me as...

We stayed for 4 days and the hospitality was extraordinary. Mr. Johannes is really helpful and hands on. The accommodation is quaint and centrally located. There is support with anything one needs. Highly recommended.

We stayed here at the beginning and at the end of our trip. At the beginning we arrived late at night and the pin code we were given when booking the rooms was wrong. We tried calling all the numbers at the door. But it took 45 minutes until we reached Johannes. The rooms were nice but quite small and...

We spent 5 nights at this charming little house and would highly recommend it to anyone. Such a warming homely vibe and the centre of Reykjavik is right on your door step! What more could you ask for. Additions like the sauna, coffee machine and underfloor heating in the bathroom just made it that little bit extra special. 5 stars...

Lovely warm cosy home. Greeted on arrival by Johannes with a nice hot tea :) Very friendly and helpful hosts. They let you get on with your trip which is nice. But they're keen to speak about the area and Iceland if you ask. Nice clean warm accommodation. You can pop to the local 'Bonus' supermarket and use the cooking...

It was a pleasure staying with Johannes and Junia. From when we arrived they were attentive and personable, helping us with anything we needed. The sauna in the basement was a surprise for us, and was an exciting bonus to our trip. Johannes was up one morning extremely early to ensure a few of his guests made it to their...

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
