Grettir House worked out perfectly for us. We arrived at an early hour in the morning and were able to reach the manager and store our bags for the day. We were able to store things at Grettir while we were away hiking and then arrive back to our things in our room. It is a convenient distance from the bus station and from downtown, both of which are useful.

Great stay Grettir Guest House! Anton (caretaker) was very accommodating and responsive to my needs. The location is just perfect. Close to the main street and all the attractions but quiet enough to sleep. Place is clean, bed was comfy and kitchen had all the basics you need to cook. Downsides are few. One bathroom and shower for 5 rooms but I never had a problem in all my days there. There's also not a "check in" area so be sure to communicate ahead. Recommended for Reykjavik.
No staff at all, just a guy on the phone. The stove didn't work properly, no freezer, the place wasn't cleaned for days (not even the old used rooms) and a tiny kitchen (and just one tiny bathroom) for a guesthouse that could accommodate at least 8 (?) people. It did have a quite perfect location, and it was newly renovated - so that's good. Let's just say that it was a good, though slightly strange and irksome stay.
