Guesthouse Odinn is a lovely little guesthouse right in the centre of Reykjavik. The rooms are pretty and functional and there are 3 or 4 rooms sharing the bathroom and a kitchen. Everything is clean, the breakfast is served in a room with a view over the city and the owners are very friendly. A great place to stay and coming back to after a day of exploring Reykjavik and its surroundings.

Location was great. It was within walking distance to everything and also very quiet. Olafur was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was excellent. We stayed in a two bedroom apartment down the road from the main Odinn house with our two tenn daughters. It was very spacious and clean.

Very close the the BS1 station as well as to the main church and rest of the city. 10 minutes walk from the most important locations. The staff in the hostel was very friendly and helpful. The day we had to leave the installations, there was a very strong storm and some flights got cancelled. The staff offered us very kindly to stay if necessary and extra day. Great people.

This guest house was perfect, the land lady was just great, and her husband was very helpful. The place was always spotless and very well situated. Great base to start your travels for Iceland. In the back yard theres a hot tub, which is such a great way or winding down after a long day of exploring Reykajvik.

The room was immaculate and very cozy. There is a deck to hang out on and the beach is 5 min walk away. The owners are extremely generous and helpful. The #12 bus is right across the street to take you into town. It runs every half hour.

Heida was very welcoming to us and we had a lovely room with a balcony which was very clen and nicely decorated. We are a young couple and it suited us fine. The location is perfect for exploring Reykjevic. The Main street with shops and bars is close by (not too close that you are bothered by noise - the guest house is nice and quiet). The kitchen was good too with fridge and coffee machine, there was free tea and (real!) coffee on offer and would have been ideal to cook own meals, but we ate out all evenings.

Good style, felt homey. The dorms were very nice and comfortable, even the 14 bed dorm. The common area was enjoyable to socialize in as well as read etc.

The dorm room (10 bed) was clean and there was a lockable (byo padlock) storage drawer for each bed as well as individual light and powerpoint. There was a sink inside the dorm, handy for brushing teeth. The lounge area was large and accessible with chess available. It seems standard for Reykjavik hostels to have a bar which is open to general public, Hlemmur square is no different. The hostel is right beside the public bus station, which is handy if you use it. This is NOT the central bus station for airport transfers.
